You may have some worn door pin bushings, or the door hinge has excessive wear. I'm not sure if your vehicle has door pin bushings, if it does, they can usually be replaced.

Why wont my fuel door pop open?

There will be a small flat spring attached under a small screw ( rivet ) that presses on the base of the hinge when closed . They have a habit of breaking off and so the door will not pop open when activated . Have a friend activate the flap and at the same time press on the door near the hinge and it will open enough to get a finger under the door to open it. With a bit of luck the spring may be still in the caveity near the filler tube.

Mitsubishi shogun drivers door jams when open

Check you hinges and make sure one is not broken. Sounds like it is. Compare your drivers door to the passenger door to see if you notice any difference in the number of hinges, as the center one may have gone into the door so you won't know it's missing uless you compare.

My Toyota Avalon passenger door makes a clicking noise when opening or closing. What could cause this?

if the click happens when the door is almost completely open then there is an over center cam that latches the door open so it doesnt just swing back at you .. the cam is visible near or on the door hinges ... if there is any loosness in the pivot pin then it will snap each time you go over the latch point .. heavy greese on its pivot pin might quiet it down .. if the click happens just as the door is opened then make sure the door front edge is not hitting the fender edge. of course lube the hinges and make sure they are not loose ...

Driver side door making a popping noise when opening or closing. Lubed the hinge but it kind of sounds like it's coming from inside the panel

Check spacing between the front of the door and the
fender. The door could be pinching the fender when you open and close it. Hope this helps.

Back door makes terrible squeaking noise when

When you open your door you will see a flat bar that slides into the door while opening and closing. It is located between the two door hinges. There is a rubber on the door where the flat bar slides in and out, remove that rubber and you will see little rollers in the door, those rollers need to be oiled, preferably with engine oil. Oil the rollers and work the doors back and forth, the noise should abate.

Check the play in the door pin hinges by lifting up and down on the end of the door if there is excessive play or up and down movement the door pins must be replaced, I have had cars make this sound because of worn hinge pins.
