Gas pump shuts off early when fueling 2004 Dodge Ram 5.7 SLT Pickup.


My work truck does this as well. Pulling out the nozzle doesnt work either. I know it sounds wierd, but try turning the nozzle sideways or upside down when filling the tank. Works well with my work truck.....

a suggested have the filler and recovery and evap system of the tank filler tube checked out ..could be perished seals or piping

these days the operator wait till there enough complaints before doing anything

When putting gas in my 2004 Kia amanit the fuel nozzle kicks off. How do I locate and fix the problem


HI Bridgette,

Due to the different shapes of fuel tank filler necks in cars & trucks, it may be necessary to vary one or more things to allow fuel to flow uninterrupted until the tank is really full.

The main problem can come from the new "vapor recovery" gasoline pumps. These pumps and hoses actually recover gasoline fumes from your tank as the liquid gasoline displaces the air / fumes in the tank is it is being filled. If gasoline flow is started at full blast, it can splash back slightly, causing liquid to be pulled back by the pump - so it shuts off. So, start with a slow rate of filling and gradually increase flow rate to maximum over 5 to 10 seconds. If it still shuts off, try some of the suggestions below.

First, don't fill at maximum flow rate from the pump - that is, don't set the nozzle for wide open. Select one of the other "latches" on the handle instead of the fastest flow and let the tank fill entirely at this rate.

Second, you should experiment a bit with the length of nozzle that you push into the tank's filler neck. If you push it in too far or too little, the pump nozzle can do what you're describing.

Third, try twisting the nozzle slightly so that it doesn't hang straight downward - a little to the left or right may provide a solution.

Lastly, try a different gas station. Their pumps may not be so picky with your tank's filler neck.

Good luck!

Auto gas pump nozzles shut off frequently and prematurely. This has occured at various filling stations. Have to practically dribble the gas in to get gas flow to continue.


it sounds like the filler tube is collapsed or the breather vent is pulged more than likely its the filler tube have someone get on the ground and look from underneath

2004 mercury sable gas go's into tank real slow


This is caused by an obstructed filler air pipe vent, this keeps the air from coming out of the tank as you fill, this causes the filler nozzle at the station to shut off as the gas backs up in the filler pipe, the air vent pipe is either kinked or blocked in some way. The vent tube runs down along side the gas fill tube and is all one part, replace it.

Cant fill the truck with gas the pump will shut off and gas can be seen inside the fill pipe. the gas will then slowly go into the tank. the truck is a dodge 1500 hemi 5.7 2x2 .


There is most likely a crimp or blockage in the filler tube. This is the tube that leads between the fill pipe and the tank. You may need to remove the tube and tank or replace the hose so you don't have slow filling problems.

Many vehicles have a rubber hose between the filler tube on the body and the gas tank. Check that it's not collapsed or that something maybe got in there and squeezed it partially shut. The rubber tube may need replaced. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Can't put gas in the tank.It keeps tripping the gas pump off. This started about a year ago but just recently has gotten to the point that I can only get 3 or 4 tenths of gas in before it shuts the pump...


Run the nozzle at the slowest you possibly can, and it should take the gas. Some vehicles have a small vent tube running up the inside of the filler neck. You might check that.

Gas comes out of the nozzle as foam, and any obstruction causes it to back up.

Try different angles for the nozzle as well.

Pumping gas!


Try pumping the gas a little slower, or turn the nozzle in a different position, sometimes the gas will back up the filler tube, making it think it's full.
