There is a roll over ball blocking you if your vehicle was to roll over there is a ball that will close off filler neck trapping fuel for safety purposes under vehicle follow the filler neck down to tank beside the big filler neck hose should be a smaller hose remove that hose from tank and insert your syphon hose there this should work for you i assume you have determined that the uel pump is your problem and are trying to access the pump??

Help asap by a diesel mechanic

If the crossover pipe between tanks runs up the crossmember above fuel level, it needs to be full of fuel to syphon into the other tank, if it has air in the pipe it won't syphon... Pressurise the full tank with compressed air to force fuel into pipe and other tank. it should work correctly unless there is an air leak/ blockage/tap tuned off on the crossover pipe....

you can't syphon the gas out on these vehicles. They have a ball that is in the metal hose on the gas tank to keep any large object out of the tank. Your best bet would be to drop the tank, and take the fuel pump out and dump all the old fuel. Hope this helps, James Booth

I'm trying to feed the syphon hose into the tank of my 1993 jeep grand cherokee from the filler and the hose doesn't seem to feed all the way in.

welcome to the world on anti gas theft, there is a block in the filler neck to prevent syphoning, you can disconnect the feed line to the injectors and hotwire the fuel pump to drain it

The tank is almost full, but no matter how i put the hose in I can't get it to go down far enough to syphon the gas out

Hi, there are baffles in the filler pipe designed to prevent siphoning. If you need to drain the tank, I would disconnect the filter and use the fuel pump to drain it.

Trying to syphon gas from a 2000 toyota camry and can't get the hose into the gas tank it hits something and won't go in far enough to get to the gas

There is a safety block in there that doesn't aloow them to be syphoned. Sorry to tell you. If you are needing to get the gas out then you will have to drop the tank. It sucks cause it is alot of work but that is the only way it can be done.

Does the 2004 cavalier have an anti-siphon valve between the filler tube and the gas tank?

Yes, it has a wire mesh type anti syphon device, if you desperately need to syphon fuel from the vehicle it can be pushed through with the hose pipe, but you may risk blocking the fuel outlet if the mesh falls into the tank.
