There is a check valve in the filler hose to stop fuel from coming out seems yours might be stuck , run a metal coat hangers inside the filler neck while prying open the little fill flap. see if that helps OR you are not or have no VENT to AIR in your evap system causing excessive tank pressure.

    I had the same problem on a dodge ram. It turns out it was the evap canister on the side of the tank that caused it to not take fuel. Changed that and everything works now but my check engine light and gascap light still stays on.

Service engine soon light came on, replaced gas cap it went off but a week later it came back on, when it try to fuel the truck it spill the gas back out like it is a full tank


One of the most common causes, is blockage in the venting system from fuel entering the vent lines and into the charcoal canister, the fuel gets absorbed by the charcoal canister causing it to swell and block vent lines. the gas tank contains both fuel and air. when you fill it up the gas displaces the air and the air has to go somewhere. but the air that is displaced is full of gas vapor so the gas vapor goes to the vent lines and into the charcoal canister, when the charcoal canister swells up it prevents the air from escaping the tank, canister could be clogged,canister filter may need replacement,electrical connection to the close valve may be open,canisterf might be damaged,purge valve from canister might be clogged,vent hoses might be clogged, the vent hose could be clogged, or the vent hose may have a kink. all this is caused by overfilling the gas tank, getting that last drop of gas in the neck of the fill tube.
good luck!

Did a tune up on my 91 dakota, but still burning lots of gas. change wires, sparkplugs, cap, rotor, and oxygensensor but still burning gas out the tail pipe


Try running fuel injector cleaner through the gas tank. A fuel injector might be stuck open, letting lots of fuel into the engine. Also try replacing your fuel pressure regulator, and inspect the fuel tank return lines.
Good luck

I have a Dodge Dakota quad cab-magnum V-8. It started at 77,000 miles with trying to start it and it turned over lots before it would crank. Mechanic says he put 3 different fuel pumps in it but still does...


Yes , it's probably the gas cap - the valve in it is stuck shut so the tank gets under vacuum when you start the engine, lowering the fuel flow. Just replace the cap.

My 1992 dodge dakota wont run. i will start it but i will have to feather the gas to keep it alive. it has over a half a tank of gas in it can you help me?


when was this vehicle as serviced?
this could one of several issues.

1 the idle jet on the carborator maybe dirty so the engine is not getting enough fuel at tickover to keep running.
2 the fuel filter is blocking up and may need replacment.
3. the carborator may need an overhaul as the float chamber is not activating correctly.
4. fuel cap may be blocked give a run with the fuel cap off see if that helps. if you get aload hiss each time you fill up that indiates a blocked fuel cap which will need clearing or replacing.
5. dirt in the fuel line if filled from jerry cans contaminents can get in th tank and block the line. when you put pressure on the gas this causes higher vacum from the pump and hides the problem.
6 airfilter may be blocking and needs replacement so there is not enough air at ldle.
7 check plugs if they are sooty or covered in white then the mix is wrong and needs resetting. or indicats reduced fuel or air to engine.
8. plugs may need replacement.

I Own 98 dodge Dakota check Engine light, code PO 442 Evap Emission Control System Leak (small). Gas fill pipe is rusted, Should flapper hold back air with gas cap removed?


No the flap inside the fuel filler pipe is just an anti theft device to make it more difficult to siphon fuel out of the tank. The most likely cause for the code it the fuel cap itself. If you don't get the gas cap tight after you fuel up, it can set a computer code and turn on the Check Engine Light. After you check to make sure the cap is on tight, clear the engine code and see if it comes back on. If it does then have the fuel cap tested to make sure that it doesn't have a vaccuum leak.

Dodge dakota vacume problem


You need a diagnostic box to tell you what the problem is.......if it is a evap leak,it could be anywhere,the hoses,the gas tank seal,a cracked hose.If you can go to a dealer they might have a smoke machine, they watch to see where white smoke is escaping from.Which is impossible to tell other wise. Could even have over filled the gas tank,that would give you an engine light......
