Vent soleniod is not working. That activates and lets the tank vent when u turn the truck off so you can fill it. Pretty common for these vehicles

Can only pump fuel very slowly into my 2003 2.7 litre Kia optima. Why, and how to fix?


Check that the flap/valve that moves aside when you insert the fuel nozzle is moving fully. Also check the rubber tube on inside of the fuel filler cap to the tank is ok .. and often, there may be a thinner tube that acts as a vent... check the vent tube (if fitted).

When you fill your car with fuel the back pressure from the vehicle fuel tank causes the fuel nozzle to cut out and stop delivering. This is just a safety feature. Every fuel nozzle in the world is the same..

You don't have a big problem. Next time you refill with fuel try delivering in short 'spurts' .. pull the trigger for a few seconds and then release .. pull again ... Let the pressure in the tank drop between spurts. Don't shove the nozzle into the fuel filler and try and blast gallon after gallon into the tank.

I'm in the UK. I have a 1998 Jeep. Every time I fill it with gas it takes a while and my wife phones the police to report me missing from home... You don't have a problem. Fill it with spurts..

Gas pump shuts off early when fueling 2004 Dodge Ram 5.7 SLT Pickup.


My work truck does this as well. Pulling out the nozzle doesnt work either. I know it sounds wierd, but try turning the nozzle sideways or upside down when filling the tank. Works well with my work truck.....

Fuel System while filling, excessive back pressure


It does sound like a vent problem, You can try not inserting fuel nozzle completely into gas tank neck when fueling., say half way this may help.

I,m having trouble filling my gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off.


The vent on the tank is restricted and the pump nozzle can't take all the air coming from the tank as it fills. Many gas stations across the country have vapor recovery nozzles designed to capture air from your fuel tank and vent it back into the tank under ground, and out the roof vent pipe on top of the building. It's for fuel vapor emissions reduction. Until you put a few gallons in the tank, pull the boot back a little with your fingers to unseat it from the filler neck, then let go and you should be o.k. If it keeps shuting off after that, then you may have a problem with your own vapor recovery system not working properly. Check other nozzles and see if they all are that way. Mabe it's the station.

Try to fill gas tank, gas pump nozzle clicks off, sometimes as much as 10 times in 1 gallon pumped. Something wrong with pipe to tank?


There should be an air vent coming from the top of the gas tank back to the top of the fuel tank. Possibly kinked or pinched, try pulling the fuel nozzle about half way out and filling the tank on the lowest setting the fuel pump will let you.

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm

99 mercury tracer won't let gas into tank from station nozzels.


Modern gas pumps have a sensor that shuts off the flow of fuel when the tank is full or it senses near the nossle tip. They also have a back splash guard that keeps fuel from splashing back on the handle. If you have some sort of flap inside your fuel tank mouth the pump may sense that the tank is already full or the back splash guard may be keeping the nozzle from fully inserting into the tank causing the same out come. I have a 1977 Triumph Spitfire that requires me to hold the fuel pump in place or the fuel won't pump. Try holding the fuel nozzle in place and see if that makes any difference.
