Check for a crimped fuel vent hose on the filler neck. System is
a closed type for emissions but there is a vent hose running from
the tank back up close to the fill spout. You will have to get under the truck to check. This hose runs over the top of the frame to the top of the fuel tank. For easier repairs than dropping the tank remove the bed bolts on the drivers side and loosen the 2 on the
passenger side. Remove the screws holding the filler neck in and
have someone help you lift the rear body drivers side. You can block this up for easier access to the top of the tank. Also easiest
way to replace fuel pump when needed

When i put fuel in tank it takes forever to fill up

check your canister filter is blocked or your filler neck has rusted out and blocked the vent line but 80% of the time the canister filter gets blocked take off the canister and you should see the filter full of dust or dirt

My car ran out of gas and i put gas and now it wont start is there a fuel pump reset button

Probably just takes forever to fill the fuel line again, it is not good to run a fuel injected car out of gas, Takes forever to start. Just keep pumping or squirt some fuel in the throttle and fire it up, it will get it moving. Hope this helps.

Try fuel pressure regulator. OVP relay is another good bet.

My 2001 xg300,has another problem putting gas,i have to click the gun all the time,is like a blowback,isn't the fuel line has a problem or the reture line, each time putting gas take forever,.please help

ok, thats an easy one, the charcoal canister has come apart, and the micro pieces have traveled thru and has plugged the fuel vent system, when you put fuel in, the air has to vent out as the liquid displaces the air,there is a vent valve that is now plugged, unfortunatly this can be costly, as the system must be cleaned out.
