If the gas door is not latching then the retainer spring may be weak even if it isn't broken. You will need to replace this.

The gas cap door on my 1999 rav4 won't open unless one person pulls the interior lever and another opens the door w their fingers

Often the door has to be pushed against a spring to close so when the release is pulled the door springs open a small distance

Designs that don't include a spring usually include a rubber buffer that must be compressed slightly to close the door. It isn't unusual for the rubber buffer to be left lying on a gas station forecourt though I have seen designs that include adjustable buffers that won't stay where they are adjusted to and need a spot of glue.

Door will not stay closed

Sounds like the latch is seized or the tension spring is broke.
You'll probably have to replace the latch.

My lever wont open my gas i need gas.actually even the trunk lever wouldnt open the trunk.....finally the trunk lever i was able to pull up and then i couldnt ...

Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

My 96 lincoln mark viii gas door will not release when i push the button to open it. I have to have 2 people to go to the gas station, one to push button one to push on gas tank door to open it.

There is A Spring or Spring type Mechanism At the Door that POPS the Door Open Once the Button has been Pushed . And when you Close the Door This Same SPRING ACTION Sorta Fights Against your Closing it. Well it Sounds to me as if this Spring Action is Not Working Properly,
Take a CLOSE Look at this and Be sure This is Working Properly, My References Do NOT Go into DETAIL on this so its Kinda a Common Sense Approach to it.

Broken spring on the gas fuel tank door on Toyota ''Camry'' 1998

Go to your nearest Toyota dealer. Purchase this part number: 77360-22020; approx 4 dollars.

Open the fuel door. Being careful, remove the leftover plastic that is hooked by the door hinge. Insert the new spring assembly under the slot, and press it in until it clicks into place. Very easy to do.
Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
