Try to hold the nozzle a LITTLE bit out from where you usually hold at the tank. also you can hold the trigger not as much as usual.

I have trouble filling gas tank on my 13 F-250 pump shuts off takes forever to fill. What might cause this?

The system not venting properly is usually the most common source of this issue. Check filler tube/vent tube for any restrictions. Also try keeping pump nozzle part way out of filler tube.If no restrictions found, possible defective tank vent valve on top of tank. Tank will usually have to be removed to access this valve

how long has the check engine light been on?

The vent solenoid is likely stuck closed. If you look under the vehicle you will find the charcoal canister back by the gas tank. There will be a large rubber/plastic hose coming out of the canister. On the other end will be the vent solenoid. Should be up under the spare tire area.

Disconnect the hose from the vent solenoid and then try to fill the gas tank. If there are no problems filling with the hose disconnected replace the vent solenoid.

It very well could be.

Check the vent line coming from the tank to make sure its not crimped off or obstructed.

This may not be a do it yourself check, any good mechanic can check it out for you.

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!
