Question about 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager

Filling up with fuel

Whenever i fill up with fuel at whatever garage, the pumps keep cutting out.
i've tried every angle, including of course making sure the nozzle is in far enough. in fact it fills up slightly quicker (but still incredibly slow) when i pull the nozzle out slightly. what is all this about. help anyone. thanks.

Your over flow vent might be a little clogged So if you pull the nozzle out a bit you allow air to push the gas into the tank.
GoodLuck and PEACE

When fueling the pump keeps clicking off as if the tank is full


The fuel cap won't make a difference as the fuel cap is off when filling with fuel.
This is quite common with a number of vehicles, yet not necessarily anything to do with any fault of the vehicle, as it may simply be the sensitivity of the fuel pump nozzle. If the vehicle is otherwise operating normally, then I would suggest that there is no issue with it.
I would instead try angling the fuel pump nozzle or withdrawing it slightly, but not all the way out when filling with fuel.

When pumping gas the pump constantly disengages as if the tank were full - it doesn't matter which station or pump. It goes off about 10 times while filling the tank. I've taken it to the dealer...


Back pressure is going into the gas pump handle. If you havent already done so, when filling your car play around with putting the gas pump handle tube in at a different angle. My car often gives me the shits doing this too. I find that if I turn the handle so that it is at right angles or even completely upside down with the tube pointing in a different direction within the fuel intake on my car it works fine. Can be frustrating though particularly on high flow pumps.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

When pump gas into fuel tank gas keep cutting off it act like the tank is full


It is the angle and restricter in the fill tube plus the pressure from the pump causing it to do that. There is nothing wrong with this. You need to find the best angle to use when filling the vehicle. I had this same problem in a 2005 Escape. Had had to find the right place to hold the filling handle and the right position to hold the grip to get it to stop.

Fuel fill problem gas pump keeps shuts of when i try to fill


Iown 02 hyundai accent gl 1.6l. Had the problem twice. I used to over fill the tank until I had to spend close to $550.00 USD. The problem is when we overfill the tank. the carbon canister gets clogged and it damages a sensor in the assembly called "DMTL". Thia assy is located under the rear driver side of the car to the left and rear of the fuel tank. Once I replaced the carbon canister, sensor and filter the problem went away. if you let it go for a long time you eventually start smelling gas inside the car after fill ups. Good luck.

At 75,000 miles my 04Avalon gas tank will only fill 3/4 full. The gas pump cuts off and Ican keep clicking it for about 50 times to try continue filling the tank. Is there some remedy for this?


The float on your fuel pump is not working right the only cure is to replace the float not pump just the float and you will need to drop the fuel tank to do so.

We have an "04 Suzuki Verona that does the same thing, we have found that it is not the station as much as it is the angle that the tank inlet is on. When you put the gas nozzle in, it fills with some air to replace the gas comming out of the nozzle. Unless you find a place that has a higher pressure pump, you are in a long and "Clicking Off" ownership when it time to pump gas. For the record, I have noticed that if I chose the lowest setting on the handle, the pump will ussually fill about $10 at a time. two or three of those, and its a done deal. Hope this helps you.
