Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 99' cavalier, I know I my tank is not full but everytime I try to fill it, it puts a little in and the nozzle stops like its full. I've tried maneuvering the nozzle, everything and it will start to overflow. Is it my gas line not venting or what and if so how do I fix it?
I had the same problem in an old truck of mine. On my truck there was a hose that lead to the tank of the truck for fuel and there was another hose for air. For some reason, my air hose was bent and not allowing air to escape the tank, which was a pain because I had a 34.5 gallon tank to fill. I just had to buy a new hose to put in there and screw it on with some hose clamps. This might not be your problem, but if your car has ever sat for a while, something could have gotten into that air escape hose and clogged it up. Just a suggestion. Hope you have gotten it fixed or will check it out. Good luck to you.

For petrol to flow into the tank air has to leave it but the air pressure on the filler nozzle willstop the flow,so dont put the nozzle too deep so air has a chance to escape
