The vent tube that follow the fuel feed tube has a kinked area that needs to be straighten out I assume since I can not see it. That is the most common problem in your case. If no kink is found it may be a collasp hose as well

I have a 2000 Hyundai Accent. Whenever I go to fill up my gas tank, the pump clicks every minute or so (like it does when your tank is full). Is my float stuck at full? How do I get it unstuck?


Kaylie, try letting off on the gas pump trigger a little and pull nozzle out of fill port approx. 1/2", this will normally slow the flow rate of pump down and let air behind gas and stop shutting off. Some pumps are just set to pump too fast/ too much volume. If this does not work for you, have a Tech. check and see if there is some other restriction,plugged vent or problem with the vapor canister. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.


Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

When I put gas in my Mountaineer it is filling the whole filler tube up and shuts the pump off no matter how slow you pump it.


Take it to the dealer and have them modify your filler nozzle. Some other cars had the same problem that was fixed under warranty.

I have a 1999 Ford Escort Wagon. The gas tank will fill about 3/4 full and then the gas hose shut down. It then takes about ten minutes to get the rest of the gas into the tank. What is the problem?


on the wagon thay made the vent breather for tank when filling to long unfortunitly their nothing you can do other than feed it really slow backing the pump hose off just alittle but not always affective.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem


The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
