Question about 2005 Dodge Ram Srt 10 Pickup
The rubber hose that runs from the gas cap down to the tank has a smaller hose inside it. The gas goes down inside the smaller hose and the air comes up around the small hose and vents at the gas cap. It sounds like one or both hoses have become crimped somewhere. I wonder if maybe you have hit something like a parking lot curb or had a really hard thump near the gas cap. Crawl under your car and look for the gas tank filler hose. I think you will find the hose bent or collapsed between the cap and the tank. Replacing the filler hose is not difficult but can be frustrating. You may have to lower the tank to get enough clearance to remove the old hose and install the new one. The other suggestion is to see if your gas gauge is working properly. Is it possible that the tank is full and the gauge shows empty? Let me know what you find out.
