    There is no restriction in the filler tube or the leveling tube and the fuel pump works fine. What would cause the tank to regurgitate the fuel out of the filler tube?

  • sboyd69 Jul 23, 2008

    This hose is clear as well. There is a check valve in the filler tube at the tank. It opens easily, but could something be closing it from the inside?

    haven't tried it yet, but sounds reasonable, and gives me a direction.
    Thanks

Hi-

Chances are you don't have a fuel fill port device, this device contains overfill and prevents spillage. Or its the fuel tubes structure that causing it

Here, An automobile fuel filler port structure is provided that can improve the fuel filling performance and suppress scattering of the fuel. The automobile fuel filler port structure has a ventilation jacket that is formed between a guide part and the inner surface of a neck section and a plurality of helical swirl grooves that are formed on the surface of the guide part. A recirculation port that recirculates fuel-vapor-containing air during refueling is connected at the outer end of ventilation jacket.

Hope this helps

Ginko is on the right track

Try this

1.) disconect the hose leading from the fuel filter to the engine
2.) place the end thats going to the engine in a bottle
3.) trun the ingnition on, fule should flow from the filter to the bottle through the hose..

if there is none

then disconnect the other end from the fuel filter and place it in a bottle, it should be from the tank to the pump to the bottle, if you get gas there then change the filter..

Or another possibility is that the hose itself has an obstruction somehwere,,, or the injector's or injector rail may need servicing.

There is a back pressure hose that is attached to the filler inlet or towards the top of the filler tube. This hose allows air circulation so that you don't have the spit back effect. It's hidden under the fender and run out towards the fender well, and may not be easy to access. Check this hose for a kink or if it's colapsed or plugged.

Check that the filler tube is not obstructed.

    Check also the fuel filter and particularly the fuel pump. probably the pump is not working at all.

    To check if the hose line is clear you need to unplug the hose from motor side, connect a compressor to the hose, and blow in air, first you empty the fuel in the tank. Did you check this way?

2004 ford freestar only surges at 50 plus mph?


Sound like you may need a fuel tank OR a filler tube. First though you need to call FORD and see if they have a RECALL on the fuel tanks for this issue. This could be causing you surge as well, OR if you haven't already changed the EGR Valve I would suggest you fix both of these problems. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

Why is my gas tank spitting gas back at me?


There\'s a blockage in the secondary tube (about 15mm diameter) that runs down to the tank, adjacent to the main filler tube. Take the back wheel off and you\'ll see a plastic cover over the whole filler neck assembly. The secondary tube often rust and fills with dirt. The tube can get damaged too, if crushed the gas will spit back.

2003 ford windstar pumping gas spits back


Assuming the spitting happens when the tank is NOT full, almost always it is caused by a blockage of some kind. Either the fill hose is kinked, or someone has stuck something down the filler tube. Check for blockage. One way to check, is to get about 4 feet of large (1/2" ?) clear plastic tubing and run it down the filler. Before you go too far past the neck opening, be sure you will be able to pull it out without getting stuck. Have a screw driver handy to release the trap door if necessary. You should be able to stuff at least two feet down. Though it is possible some filler hoses have a wire spiral trap device to keep things from getting into the tank, like siphon hoses, etc.

My truck does not like to take fuel everytime i put gas in it spits it back out. what can i do to fix this


It sound like the breather tube on fuel tank is plugged. Depending on truck if you check inside rear wheel arch on same side as filler you should see a small rubber tube, make sure it's not been kinked. You should be able to fill tank slowly and if so this is the issue.

Fuel-spit back from my 2005 Dodge Durango


WOO stop there is a major recall with the 05 durangos the check valves get stuck they are recalling the gas tanks on thousands of those car. that is a big fire hazard. Go to the dealer I garente ur vehcle is recalled u may have not gotten the notice in the mail yet. Please rate if this helps.

Here is a copy of the dealer recall notice.

2005 (HB) Dodge Durango
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles built from October 13, 2004
through November 30, 2004 (MDH101300 through 113023).
The fuel tank inlet check valve on about 18,900 of the above vehicles may stick in
the open position. This can cause fuel to spill out of the filler tube when the
vehicle is being refueled. Fuel in the presence of an ignition source can result in a
fire.
The fuel tank inlet check valve must be tested for proper operation. Vehicles with
a sticking check valve must have the fuel tank replaced.

Repair Buick LeSabre filler tube?


It may have dented the filler tube, or caused the vent tube to get blocked.. it's the small tube or hose that goes up to the top of the filler neck usually follows the filler tube... if it's not venting,,, youll get this type of reaction.

Can't get gas to go in tank, and it will spit out gas


Every gas tank has a vent tube, so when you fill the tank, air can escape, while the fuel is being pumped into the tank. Some vent tubes are metal, some rubber. Yours is either collapsed or plugged up. Look at the fill tube in the firebird and follow it from the gas cap to the tank, there should be a 2nd smaller tube that is your vent tube. Check to see if it's collapsed, pinched, or bent. This is definitely your problem. Check out this web site for pictures of different fill and vent tubes to get an idea of what to look for. Good luck let me know how you make out. Curt
