My 96 Chevy blazer won't accept gas every time I


Codes or no Evap Codes, the issue is in that system
You need a schematic of the evap system, so you can
test the solenoid or valves,mainly the vent solenoid, if that
applies Not the purge valve, that is up front & opens to allow
engine vacuum to draw out fuel fumes from the tank.

Acura won't start after getting gas


I think that most newer cars have what is called a purge solenoid in the tank/filler neck. If this goes out that exact thing will happen. Other than that my best guess would be back luck and poor timing of unrelated mechanical failure,

P044o code popped up on my Blazer. there is a fuel smell coming from the back and everytime that i fuel up and it stops pumping it flows over from the tank underneath the truck. talked to a guy at AutoZone...


The evaporative leak detection diagnostic strategy is based on applying a vacuum to the EVAP system and monitoring the vacuum decay rate. The VCM monitors the vacuum level via the fuel tank pressure sensor input. At an appropriate time, the EVAP purge solenoid and the EVAP vent solenoid turn ON, allowing the engine vacuum to draw a small vacuum on the entire evaporative emission system. If a sufficient vacuum level cannot be achieved, a large leak or an EVAP system malfunction is indicated. The following conditions can cause this problem:
A disconnected or malfunctioning fuel tank pressure sensor.
A missing, malfunctioning, improperly installed, or loose fuel cap.
A disconnected, damaged, pinched, or blocked EVAP purge line.
A disconnected or damaged EVAP vent hose.
A disconnected, damaged, pinched, or blocked fuel tank vapor line.
A disconnected or malfunctioning EVAP purge solenoid.
A disconnected or malfunctioning EVAP vent solenoid.
An open ignition feed circuit to the EVAP vent or purge solenoid.
A damaged EVAP canister.
A leaking fuel sender assembly O-ring.
A leaking fuel tank or fuel filler neck.
Any of the above conditions can set a DTC P0440.

Your may have to drop the tank and check the vent valve, see if it's broke off at the vacuum line fitting since you mentioned that gas las leaking from the tank. 
When checking the vent/purge solenoid, depends on whether you have a 2dr or a 4dr. I can't remember the exact location of the 2dr vent/purge solenoid, but on a 4dr, just drop the spare tire if you have it underneath and it'll be in the middle of the cross member directly behind the rear axle. It'll have one large vacuum line and an electrical connector. 
You can also see the gas filler tube to the rear of the gas tank, check for any damages where the gas may be coming out of.
Good luck and hope this saves you some money, I believe most dealer will charge close to $400.00 to drop the gas tank and do this job.

I took my to auto zone and gave me the code 883 purge or vent solenoid defective for my 2004 chyrsler sebring .So what is that?


The purge is the charcoal canister that filters gas tank fumes and redirects back to intake manifold. It may be plugged or have a leak.

Hello tiasr06,

The problem is the purge solenoid or the purge vent. I would change both of them and your problem will go away. The purge solenoid is located near the power steering pump and the purge vent is under the car, in the back, behind the gas tank on the driver's side.
