    Same issue with 2005 Escape cannot fill gas tank, removed fuel and vent line to check for blockage found nothing. took to dealer they have no answer. The only way to fill tank is on extreme slow about one gallon per 3 minutes angle of nozzle, height of nozzle, nothing helps except extremely slow delivery.. Dealer is ordering valve for in tank it is not here yet.

Your probably getting vapor lock. Try pulling the nozzle out just a tiny maybe 1/4 inch and see if that helps.

Have a 2004 mustang. I can only only put a few cents at a time when trying to put gas before it spits back out

Sounds like vent tube is not operating probably. When gas goes in air in tank needs to go out. When air can't escape its keeping gas pushing up and kicking pump off.

Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.

Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

Every time you try to pump gas, the gas pump shuts off every 5 seconds. Doesn't matter how slow or fast you allow gas to come out. Doesn't matter what gas station. You never know when it is filled. Gas...

try disconnecting the fuel line leading into the fuel pump, let out a little fuel, then reconnect it. then disconnect the fuel line leading out of the fuel pump, letting out a little fuel.
if that doesnt work, run the car completely out of gas once. turn the engine over a few times while empty.
have you tried pumping gas with the enigine running? see if that helps. if this does help, it is probably the vacuum someplace, near the fuel injectors?

My 2005 ford escape just died after i filled it up with gas and drove down the street and the fuel gage read 3/4 tank after i just completely filled it, 5 different codes were takin, coil #1, coil #2, coil...

sounds like a quad driver has died. unfortunetly it is in the ecm computer. this needs checked throughly it is an exspensive part. as far as the fuel sensor it's part of the sending unit, it comes with the pump. not cheap either. if you can live with the gauge and keep check on your fuel milage I would wait till the pump went out.

you have a vapor vent tube problem. When fuel goes in, the iar must come out. The filler pipe has a vent pipe inside it. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Try putting the nozzle all the way in & see what happens? Try putting the nozzle in just a little way & see what happens.
Otherwise, you may need a new filler pipe.
