Hi this is a common problem, the problem is to do with the breather hose from the tank getting blocked this is a common fault, but to replace the breater your going to need to get the tank lowered from the car so you can get to the breather hose on top of the tank.

if your doing this yourself then you will need to get a workshop manual to do this as this is quite a lot of work involved.

their is no easy fix its going to be a case of changing parts on the tank

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this post as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Gas smell inside car

Being that old, I am Guessing the fuel tank has been removed to replace the fuel pump and the gas tank vent hose was not connected properly or has a smash in it, or not connected, when put back up which will cause the hard to fill up problem as it can not vent the fumes fast enough. Fumes may leak under, then inside the car instead of to the filler neck that goes to the outside of the car. I had that happen. Crawl under, look and feel around to check this.

PO441 code comes on- Evap purge control valve. also, when filling the gas tank, the nozzle on the gas pump keeps shutting off before tank is full.

Try not putting fuel nozzle in so far. Fuel flow cuts off on back pressure of the air being displaced by the fuel when filling. Can be a problem with narrow neck tanks and some fuel fillers are more sensitive than others.

My 2000 ford taurus won't fuel up and we have checked the evap and the vents and they are good the checked the power coming from the slosh module and there wasn't any could that be why it isn't fueling

This is from Fred's Auto on a Ford Taurus Forum:
Hello to your question on the ford taurus being hard to put gas in . replace the filler neck. or remove the filler neck. and when you get the neck out of the tank you will see another tube/hose in the center of the filler tube cut about 2" of the end of the center tube. the problem is that the tube over time with pressure in the tank and tube being soaked in the gas for along period time it gets soft and tube starts to close shut. i find that if you put a hard piece pipe on the end you will never have this problem again. also there is a vent tube on top of the tank(witch you do not have to remove the tank) and make sure it is not crushed shut.. this is a very easy repair. this will 100% fix your problem.

Randy said: well here is what I found. There was a small piece of hose inside my fuel fill hose. It just seem like something was blocking the fuel, so I went under and tried to squeeze on the hose and I couldnot squeeze it into like you should be able to do. so I took the hose clamp loose and hose off end of fill neck and reached inside with needle nose pliers and pulled out a smaller section of hose that I am being now told should not have been in there,by service managers.
Another guy suggests starting your car with the gas cap off.
And some others said look inside for a tiny piece of foil that accidentally came off the top of a fuel additive.
I hope that helps!

Gas pump shuts off while filling tank constantly

like answer number 2 up there, California has a Fume Collector over the nozzle, and extends over the hose itself.... its really important NOT to "top it off" after the nozzle shuts off automatically.... it has a tendancy to fill up that vapor space with gas, and you can try to put gas in your car, but it stops each time you pull the "trigger" on the handle (acts like the tank is full) The service station person needs to come out and drain out the excess gas from the hose vapor space. (they are quite familiar with this.... it happens a lot)

When filling up with gas the pump cotinually shuts off. the gas tank acts as if it is not venting

You may just have to find a happy medium as to how far you insert the nossle, there's not really any way for the tank to vent other than the fill tube, so you may just try not inserting the nossle all the way to the stopper.

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.
