SOURCE: can't get gas to go in tank, and it will spit out gas

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

SOURCE: 2003 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Cannot put gas in the the tank

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.

SOURCE: Fuel-spit back from my 2005 Dodge Durango

WOO stop there is a major recall with the 05 durangos the check valves get stuck they are recalling the gas tanks on thousands of those car. that is a big fire hazard. Go to the dealer I garente ur vehcle is recalled u may have not gotten the notice in the mail yet. Please rate if this helps.

Here is a copy of the dealer recall notice.

2005 (HB) Dodge Durango
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles built from October 13, 2004
through November 30, 2004 (MDH101300 through 113023).
The fuel tank inlet check valve on about 18,900 of the above vehicles may stick in
the open position. This can cause fuel to spill out of the filler tube when the
vehicle is being refueled. Fuel in the presence of an ignition source can result in a
fire.
The fuel tank inlet check valve must be tested for proper operation. Vehicles with
a sticking check valve must have the fuel tank replaced.

Why is my gas tank spitting gas back at me?


There\'s a blockage in the secondary tube (about 15mm diameter) that runs down to the tank, adjacent to the main filler tube. Take the back wheel off and you\'ll see a plastic cover over the whole filler neck assembly. The secondary tube often rust and fills with dirt. The tube can get damaged too, if crushed the gas will spit back.

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.

sounds like your breather tube on your gas tank filler tube is clogged when you look at where you fill your tank youll see a little small hole next to the filler tube that is a hose that lets your tank breathe chances are it is plugged

My 2004 freestar refueling problem


This is a venting problem. When the gas goes in, the air has to come out. If the air vent is blocked, the fuel wil spit back as the air forces it's way out the filler pipe.

Sometimes the vent pipe is inside the filler pipe, sometimes it runs alongside the filler pipe.

For the 2003 Winstar, it is a separate fresh air hose. Frestar was it's replacement in 2004 so it may be different. Check for a plugged or kinked hose.

I have a 1991 ford f150 with a 5.8 engine, most everytime I fill up with gas it spits it back out. I have dual tanks


push the gas nozzle all the way in and maybe the anti theft flaps are stuck easy fix stick a long screwdriver in filler tube to see if they are stuck or if they are jammed in filler tube if screwdriver doesn't detect obstruction try a wire hanger witch is longer and skinnier

Repair Buick LeSabre filler tube?


It may have dented the filler tube, or caused the vent tube to get blocked.. it's the small tube or hose that goes up to the top of the filler neck usually follows the filler tube... if it's not venting,,, youll get this type of reaction.
