At the start of the engine, the fuel gauge reads empty. i know for sure the gas tank is filled up with a decent amount or its full. after afew miles, the gauge slowly moves to its proper reading. i know...


Most cars and truck nowdays show the tank empty when you start it. Then it slowly advances to the correct level of fuel in the tank. You can try and use some fuel additives like Gumout or Valvoline that clean the injectors and other fuel sytem parts. You can get a buildup of tarnish in these parts and this can cause slow readings. If this was the case it should improve after a few tank fulls of gas with the cleaners added. The guage could also slowly be going bad. The newer style guages are connected to the fuel pump and you will need to replace the whole unit if this goes out on you. Keep in mid that when the fuel pump quits, it quits, usually without much advance notice. If the car starts sputtering and does not have full power, this will hint at the fuel pump going bad. If your car has over 100,000 miles on it, you might want to think about preparing to change the fuel pump, these seem to want to go out shortly after 100,000 miles, but you can get lucky once in a while and it can last longer. Keeping your tank at least half full with clean gas is a big help, the gas keeps the fuel pump cool so it last longer!

What do you know about the gas nozzles not letting you put the gas into the 1998 mercury grand marquis? It keeps spitting it out and will only let you put it in by hand and a small drizzle which takes...


inside the filler tube that connects fuel tank there is an air vent tube that lets air out as u fill the tank, the tube is made from a very light weight plastic and they can collapse, the result is slow fill or gush back when filling. You will need to replace the vent tube assembly, contact a ford dealer for the right parts, that is the only place other than a salvage yard to get the part.

When trying to fill the gas tank the gas spits out even though the tank is not full


you cannot use the autofill guns as they are too quick.only fill manually and try twisting gun to one side when filling.(there is a restrictor in the tank that stops flow if car overturned.)

Gas doesn't go into tank easily - wants to spit back out. pump keeps clicking off and it takes a long time to put gas in tank. what could problem be? car is a 2000 camry


theres a one way valve in the filler neck of the gas tank and that is spring loaded. it maybe getting jammed up. will need to remove filler necvk and check it's operation. pretty much only thing down there that it could be.

Can't get gas to go in tank, and it will spit out gas


Every gas tank has a vent tube, so when you fill the tank, air can escape, while the fuel is being pumped into the tank. Some vent tubes are metal, some rubber. Yours is either collapsed or plugged up. Look at the fill tube in the firebird and follow it from the gas cap to the tank, there should be a 2nd smaller tube that is your vent tube. Check to see if it's collapsed, pinched, or bent. This is definitely your problem. Check out this web site for pictures of different fill and vent tubes to get an idea of what to look for. Good luck let me know how you make out. Curt

2000 Camry Gas tank spits gas out 2-3 times before taking it


there is a vent pipe that runs along side the fill pipe, this allows the air to vent out of the tank as u fill, check it for obstrutions or a kink, u will need to remove it to check this out.

Gas gauge flys from quarter tank to way past full mark and sticks


This isn't a definite fix, but it may be that the gasoline in your tank is 'sloshing' forwards and backwards and your sensour is getting readings when the gasoline is in different positions in your tank. The connection is actually above your gasoline tank and you'll have to take off the tank harnesses and drop the tank if you want to check to see if the connection became slightly loose, otherwise you can just fill your gas tank and reset your temporary milage gage (that's the little black button near your RPM meter) and remember how many miles you get per tank.
