Toyota corolla verso fuel neck overflow


There is likely an issue with the vent control side of the EVAP system. I am also willing to bet the check engine light has been on since this problem started? This is a complicated system and i would recommend having a shop (either the dealer or an independent shop that you have experience with) take a look at this.

When putting gas in my 2004 Kia amanit the fuel nozzle kicks off. How do I locate and fix the problem


HI Bridgette,

Due to the different shapes of fuel tank filler necks in cars & trucks, it may be necessary to vary one or more things to allow fuel to flow uninterrupted until the tank is really full.

The main problem can come from the new "vapor recovery" gasoline pumps. These pumps and hoses actually recover gasoline fumes from your tank as the liquid gasoline displaces the air / fumes in the tank is it is being filled. If gasoline flow is started at full blast, it can splash back slightly, causing liquid to be pulled back by the pump - so it shuts off. So, start with a slow rate of filling and gradually increase flow rate to maximum over 5 to 10 seconds. If it still shuts off, try some of the suggestions below.

First, don't fill at maximum flow rate from the pump - that is, don't set the nozzle for wide open. Select one of the other "latches" on the handle instead of the fastest flow and let the tank fill entirely at this rate.

Second, you should experiment a bit with the length of nozzle that you push into the tank's filler neck. If you push it in too far or too little, the pump nozzle can do what you're describing.

Third, try twisting the nozzle slightly so that it doesn't hang straight downward - a little to the left or right may provide a solution.

Lastly, try a different gas station. Their pumps may not be so picky with your tank's filler neck.

Good luck!

When pumping gas in a 2000 hyundai it the nozzle keeps cutting off . it take forever to fill the gas tank up


i`m guessing that you have tried to install the nozzle in different places in the filler neck while filling the car.if this you have tried then you may have a bad vent valve that is not working properly causing excess air pressure in the fuel tank shutting off the nozzle.have a shop check this out for you.

Petrol (gas) inlet is very slow it seem like an airlock have somebody else had a simmilar problem


Yes it's a common problem. You have two options: 1. fill the tank very slowly or; 2. (more tricky) put a short length of 3/8 fuel resistant PVC tubing down the filler neck before you fill up. make sure it is long enough not to disappear down into the tank & short enough not to reach the fuel when the tank is full. It is a good idea to hold onto this tube with you spare hand. Let any fuel in the tube drain out before removing it though & be careful not to spill petrol on yourself. To avoid this bend the tube gently back into the mouth of the fuel filler.

Can't fuel xg350 2002 at gas station difficult


there is a tube that runs along side the filler neck to the gas tank, this tube allows air to escape from the gas tank as you fill it, if it gets kinked or obstructed then you have a hard fill situation, pull the filler neck/vent assembly out and replace it.

Gas tank backs up when filling, shutting off hose


I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.

CANT FILL GAS TANK FUEL BACKING UP


You will need to replace the filler neck, the vent hose inside the filler neck gets kinked and causes this problem. The air can not vent back out of the fuel tank as you fill it.
