Why would the metal shield on my 2013 jeep Cherokee gas filler lock up? I can not put the gas nossle into the hole to put gas in the car?

It sounds like something is jamming the spring mechanism. If you cannot get it open, take it to a mechanic for assistance.

I have 2006 Lexus Lx470 with a problem which is plugged gas tank when filling the tank by fuel as fully loaded. Yet there is no gas. So what can be cause of this problem and help me!

These vehicles are equipped with a floating ball in the filler pipe. When tank is full, the ball floats to block the filler pipe, causing a vapor lock which shuts off the gas pump at the gas station. Try using an old car antenna to knock it free to see if it fixes it. If not the filler pipe will need to be removed and serviced.

I have a 2001 hyundai accent and my gas will not contiuously pump at any gas station i go to. ive tried pulling the pump out to allow air, ive tried putting it all the way in, moving it up down left right,...

There is a Technical service bulletin for your vehicle that covers this problem. It involves diagnosis of your fuel vapor system. Technical Service Bulletin # 99-30-002
Hyundai vehicles are covered under warranty for 10 years or 100,000 miles. It is possible that you may be able to get this fixed at the dealer free if your vehicle is not yet out of warranty.

Fuel Tank Overflow

This is caused by some gas station pumps, not your vehicle. The sensor on a lot of pumps at stations are not replaced or adjusted, or the nozzle is not pressed in far enough when the attendant inserts the nozzle when fueling a vehicle. I too had the same problem, and realized the solution after testing other fuel stations/pumps.

I smell gas fumes coming from my car when i park and turn off the ignition

normally fumes come in to vehicle when stopped because of oil leak from rocker cover but check your fuel filler cap seal etc and also incase the tank is leaking just have a sniff at the rear of the car if its the filler cap or tank filler you normally get smell when tank is nearly full and been around a few corners the fuell filler nect becomes pourous and just spills out a bit if so will need replacing .but most time its an oil leak from rocker box or engine

Driver side mirror bracket on car broke that holds breakaway spring. Can this be replaced? Thank you!

The mirror cover comes off exposing the pot metal attatchment points where the spring is attatched.Where the retainer broke ,all you have to do is take a drill and drill a hole just over from where the brake occured.Then take some pliers and pull the spring over and put the end through the hole. Fixed! Any local mercedes mechanic should know this fix . Call a round to find one who says he or she will do it.I think 30-50 dollars should be it, no extra parts are needed.

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem

The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
