Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

My 1999 Chevy Malibu won't take gas even though I'm nearing an empty tank. I've tried several different times thinking the gas pump was at fault but it's the car, gas flows right out of the tank as if it were full. Any idea why or how I can go about fixing this problem on a Sunday?

Ive heard of a related problem, a woman bought a car from a police auction and the tank was full of drugs!!!! if anything pull the tank, take the fuel pump out and look for obstructions. if your not able, keep a gas can handy!!!! other than that, i have no clue unless someone tried to syphon gas and damaged something, or vandals purposely put something in there to mess with you

Your description indicates that you may have an issue with the canister vent purge/sol. It is not an uncommon issue.
