That depends on the cleaner you will be using as some are put in the fuel tank then filled with fuel others are used by putting the feed line for the fuel pump and the return line from the injectors in the cleaner container so the pump draws the fluid into the pump and returns the unused fluid to the container while running until the fluid is used up
For some reason, your fuel tank seems to be heating up or there is pressure within the tank. Thats why the fuel spits back..the vapours inside cause the filling mechanism to reject the filling apparatus.
It could also be a block in the fuel lines, or some other reason. Its too hard to say without a manual inspection.
My best advice would be to take it to your mechanic and have him take a look at it to diagnose the exact problem.
Should you find this advice satisfactory, kindly take a moment to "Accept" this solution. Thanks in advance and best of luck!
the fuel level sensor is a float off the side of the fuel sender. over time these floats can become weak at the pivot point and read inaccurately. fuel sender should be replaced to correct this problem
This was possible in the older ones the newer cars are not that way, a scan tool is the only way to get the codes that i know of but anyway this problem you are having sounds like a fuelpump problem, try a quick trick, have someone try to start it while you beat on the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber hammer, see if it starts, if it does then the pump is bad, sometimes shake it will make contact and get pump going, i thing this is why there was no power and the sputters and spits.
Just a few things people who work on cars should have. Jackstands, floor jack.... Before you do this yourself. Go into a auto parts store, AZ has manuals already open to look at, or spend the $20 to buy the book . IT pays for it self in just one job & there pictures of the fuel pump job. Theres a few special things about taking the gas tank out to get to the fuel pump. This is good advice.
