Gas Overflow


Sounds to me like a bend/kink in your filler neck, or someone stuffed a rag down there.

Remove the fuel filler cap and run a long, rigid wire down your filler neck - if you encounter significant resistance, remove the filler neck from the tank and investigate further.

My 96 Chevy blazer won't accept gas every time I


Codes or no Evap Codes, the issue is in that system
You need a schematic of the evap system, so you can
test the solenoid or valves,mainly the vent solenoid, if that
applies Not the purge valve, that is up front & opens to allow
engine vacuum to draw out fuel fumes from the tank.

This could be a collapsed filler hose from the gas tank filler or it could be a vent hose that is collapsed. Might also be the carbon cannister or associated valving.

My 1999 toyota camry turns over well but wont start. new fuel filter, fuel pump works good.


Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?

When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.

EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.

=========

You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)

MOVE the car to outdoor.

Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.

DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.

Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.

After filling up the fuel tank (tank was low on gas), engine light comes steady on. After about ten minutes driving the vehicle and atempting to stop engine stold and battery light would come on.


battery light will come on when engine stalls but should go out when engine is restarted.
suspect dirt in fuel system sucked up by low fuel level from fuel tank engine ligth may have been indication of fuel starvation.
if not then
suspect battery is not being charged properly
check battery condition
check that generator is charing battery.
to test battery try starting the engine with lights on if battery is low the engine will not turn and the lights will dim.

U may have a defective fuel pressure check valve in the electric fuel pump, u have the classic symptoms, to check this buy a fuel pressure test guage for your truck, about $40, the test port for fuel pressure is on the top of th engine in the fuel rail that supplies fuel to the injectors, hook up the guage to the test port and run the engine, make sure u have no fuel leaks at the hook up, then shut down the engine, the fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI, if it does the check valve is defective and you need a new fuel pump
