When filling up the gas tank of my 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, it releabsed a few cups of gasoline from somewhere at the bottom of the car. I'm not sure why??? It hasn't leaked since.

Both the fuel pump and gas gage sending units are located inside the tank. They are accessed by a plate and gasket on top of the fuel tank.
If the gasket leaks or the hoses leading to the vent leak, your condition would happen. Unfortunately to confirm the tank would have to be dropped(removed) which requires all the fuel to be removed first. Not a pleasant nor easy task.

Whenever i fill my tank,my gauge doesn't go all the way to full,it ends @ 3quarters & apparently i have to open airlock to release air inside the tank.Please tell me where it's situated!

I had the same problem. What you need to do is under the driver's side rear is a black gas canister unit that is supposed to filter gas in the neck. There is a check valve that you need to remove and replace or you can use WD-40 to unstick it. That valve is in the closed position so when you try to fill up the tank, the tank gets pressurized. I cleaned mine and it needs it again. The valve is around $60. I think, but could be wrong. Hope this helps,,,

After filling the tank of the 06 expedition it has recently been slipping immediately to 1/2 or 3/4 full. How can i remedy this and why is it happening? Thanks.

the fuel sending unit is going bad. unfortunatlly it's located on the side of your fuel pump inside of the gas tank. and they do not only sell the sending unit by itself. you'll need to purchase the fuel pump in order to get the sending unit. the fuel tank will also need to be removed to replace the fuel pump as it's inside the gas tank.{most garages price the labor based on how much fuel is inside the gas tank} the gas tank is very heavy when it has alot of gas in it. i suggest that you shop around for prices on fuel pump and the labor to replace it. thank you for choosing

Gas filling is difficult, pump keep clicking off

It is going to be a vent hose,that is crimped,or stopped up,most likely crimped,that runs to the tank,and up next to the filler hose,or it runs inside of the filler hose,please rate,if this was at all helpful,thank you.

How do you fill the gas tank?


No seriously now.....if the release in the trunk wont work then the relaese may be stuck, frozen, or broken.

While you are pulling the one in the trunk, you or someone else use something like a small screwdriver to pop the lid open, then leave it open till you find out whats wrong with the release.

By the way, just so you know, those gas doors will not stop anyone from syphoning your gas. A screwdriver will pop that door open in 1/2 second, its more cosmetic and a slight deterent.

I can't get the door open to my gas tank. 2005 Honda Civic Hybri

In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.

Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.

Gas tank?

You are experiencing fuel tank venting problems. Air needs to excape when filling. The normal system in the tank for releasing air is being blocked. A repair shop will probably have to drop the tank out of the car to check the vent system.
