Question about 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

What do you know about the gas nozzles not letting you put the gas into the 1998 mercury grand marquis? It keeps spitting it out and will only let you put it in by hand and a small drizzle which takes forever to fill it up. I had a part replaced in the gas tank and it still is doing it. The first 11 1/2 years I had the car I had no problems. The repairman said it is the gas stations that some of them have bad nozzles. I don't think so as I have used them in the pastl. I only have 38,000 miles on my car. Do you have any ideas?

Inside the filler tube that connects fuel tank there is an air vent tube that lets air out as u fill the tank, the tube is made from a very light weight plastic and they can collapse, the result is slow fill or gush back when filling. You will need to replace the vent tube assembly, contact a ford dealer for the right parts, that is the only place other than a salvage yard to get the part.

I own a 2010 grand marquis and I cant put gas in it unless I pump it realy slow. Is this a common problem?

yes, while fueling just barely stick the pump nozzle in the gas neck, you probably wont be able to pump at full speed but you should be able to pump a little faster
