Every gas tank has a vent tube, so when you fill the tank, air can escape, while the fuel is being pumped into the tank. Some vent tubes are metal, some rubber. Yours is either collapsed or plugged up. Look at the fill tube in the firebird and follow it from the gas cap to the tank, there should be a 2nd smaller tube that is your vent tube. Check to see if it's collapsed, pinched, or bent. This is definitely your problem. Check out this web site for pictures of different fill and vent tubes to get an idea of what to look for. Good luck let me know how you make out. Curt

Same problem yesterday on my Dad's Jimmy. Left my brother in law stranded cause they couldn't put gas in it. There is a pressure purge valve next to the tank that is supposed to release the pressure on the tank when the engine is shut down. These often fail in Jimmy's and Blazer's and because the tank is still pressurized, the antisiphon valve doesn't open up and this keeps you from putting gas in the tank. You need to replace the part.
