There should be a beather pipe attached to the tank to remove pressure build up in the tank when filling up. if the breather is blocked then pressure from the tank will build up then force the gas back up the filler pipe when filling.check your breather pipe.

Town and country slow to start

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

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.

When i pump gas it shoots back out even when its not full

you need to pump the gas slowly. the filler neck is not allowing air to escape out of tank while filling.this causes an air block and causes th gas to shoot back out at you as air escapes.

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.

My 94 Mercury Sable slows down and dies when less than half tank

Check for vent to gas tank,and the fuel pressure regulater to make sure the gas that isn`t being used is routed back to tank easy.The return line going back to tank needs to be cleared by removing gas cap,and blowing air pressure back into tank,If this don`t help,replace the fuel pump,for it is weak.

My 02 yukon has a tendency to stall when I'm turning into a parking space or backing out of one. It only does it a really slow speeds. When i come to red light the engines battery gauge drops than picks up...

Did you clean the mass air flow sensor when you changed the filter? Get some MAF sensor cleaner and follow the directions. Have the alternator tested. Do you run the gas tank all the way to empty all the time? If so the pump may be shot the pump needs to be submerged in gas to keep it cool if you run it below 1/4 tank a lot its life is considerably shortened. you could also have a vacuum leak ,so that when you apply the brakes there is not enough vacuum left to run right. lastly the Idle air control motor could be weak.
