This is usually caused by the vent tube on the fuel filler pipe being restricted in someway. If you look under the vehicle at the fuel filler pipe you will see a smaller pipe running down beside it.This is the vent.Make sure that it is not bent or stopped up.

I have 2002 Lincoln ls that is leaking gas from the top of gas tank by fuel pump I've replaced the fuel pump could it be a bad gas line when I go to fill up with gas some of it runs out as I am pumpin


Does the pump have wick disconnects that required a tool to remove them? There are orings in those as well as a large oring sealing the pump to the tank. Make sure the connectors click when you replace them. The pump should activate with the key on. " not started", you should be able to see if the lines are leaking or if it just your fuel fill overflow hose leading to the fill door alongside the large full hose.

Does my 94 lincoln continental have a access panel for the fuel pump


You have to raise the rear end off ground high enough to be able to remove the gas tank. The access panel is located on top of the gas tank . (aka) Fuel Pump

Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.


Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

The car seems to have an obstruction in the gas line, won't take gasoline easily from the punp. Turns pump off continuosly.


Dan the reason it takes it from a gas can is there is no pressure building up in the line as you would have from a gas tank. As you fill the tanks the air inside of the tank has to go out as the tank fills up. I would suggest checking the fill hose thats connected to the gas tanks and the spout inlet where you put the hose to fill the tanks and check for kinks in the hose. Second there should be a vent hose from the tanks that connects to the spout also check it for kinks or blockage this would prevent air from escaping from the tank causing the gas pump to cut off due to the rapid filling of the tank without the air being able to escape. Hope this helps

Where is the fuel pump located on my 2002 continental?


The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. You need to drain the fuel and pull the tank out from the car. Your fuel pump will look like this, the top is part of the fuel tank. mcneb_49.jpg

When filling gas tank the gas pump kicks off unless I trickle in the gas. Takes about 10 minutes to fill 18 gallons of gas. What is the fix?


Fuel tank vent hose damaged, kinked, or bent.

Fuel tank vent valve is defective, plugged with dirt, or damaged.

If the car is driven normally and has never been in an accident, it's probably the valve.

2000 Lincoln Continental. Won't fill with gas without pump clicking off every 20 cents worth . No matter which pump I fill at. Happens always. No accidents ever with this car. No visible kinks in both...


this car has a closed fuel system,and the air pressure coming back out the filler tube is shutting off the pump,only answer is hold the gun and fill slowly.........do not over fill.

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.


The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

98 Lincoln Continental - Fueling problem


I found the problem!!! There is a square steel box under a plastic cover under the gas tank. This box is to filter the gas fumes that comes out of the gas tank when filling. Well the hose from the filler neck (or tank) fell off and was hanging there. I put the hose back on (very easy) and that was that, no more problem! I talked to so many people and mechanics and no one knew about this problem. I suffered with this for so long!. So do it yourself and save a ton I'm sure.
