The gas is shutting off because the air is not release out of the gas tank, the air is forced out when gas is going in and this flow goes through vent valve, this valve is located near the fuel tank and the valve may be stuck closed or the hose is blocked. the most common problem is due to spider webs inside the vent hose, the hose will need to be cleaned out to allow the flow of air, i would think the check engine light would be on due to this problem, but if not it will come on if this is not fixxed. let me see if i can get a diagram to help you locate the vent valve and the hose that leads off of it.good day,

How do I fix my gas tank. I put gas in but it doesn't let me pump without clicking every few seconds. It's not the adjustment of the pump where you move it and it fills.

I don't know year--make--model?
Check vent line and/or evap system. The air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back up the fill tube and shut off the gas pump.

Why does the gas pump keep clicking off while putting gas in my car

some pumps have more pressure than others, too much flow will restrict the flow shutting off the pump nozzle works on flow as car gets full it makes pressure to the nozzle and shuts it off

1997 Dodge Intrepid has set up for several months while in hospital. Will not fire. Put small gas amount in air intake and it fires and runs for 10-15 seconds. Gas probably not getting to injectors. Pump...

Several months could be a tank of bad gas. When turning the ignition to on position the pump runs for 3 to 5 seconds to pressurize the system, next find the valve on fuel rail and press it, Shield with a rag while doing this. You should get fuel. Check the way it smells, bad gas has an awful smell that can make you hurl! Attach a fuel pressure tester, it should be around 50lbs. If it's bad empty the tank by pressing the needle and relieving the pressure. Next disconnect fuel line before the filter get a container to catch the gas. IN the engine conpartment disconnect the fuel pump relay and put a jumper wire to run the pump until tank is drained. Instal new filter and pump if needed and add a can of "Seafoam" to the tank with fresh gas. Run pump until there's fuel at the fuel rail then put relay back in. now we should have ignition and constant running. Hope this helped.

I have a 2000 chevrolet express van sometimes it will start and run fine now it wont start at all i no its in the fuel system how do i check to see if the fuel pump is bad

Listen for the pump to come on when you turn the key to on. If it doesn't come on, find the relay in the engine compartment and see if the relay clicks when you turn the key on. If the relay doesn't click, replace the relay or try switching it with another one that is the same kind. If the relay is OK, and you can't hear the pump come on, your pump is probably bad.
If you can hear the pump, it might still be bad. You need to get a pressure test to make sure it is making pressure. An easy way to see if you are getting some fuel pressure is to find the fuel filter and loosen the nut on the engine side of the filter. In this way, you are checking both the pump and the filter. With the key on, loosen the connection carefully until gas starts to squirt out. Quickly tighten in back. If you loosen it all that way and get no gas, try loosening the connection on the other side of the filter. If neither side has gas, your pump is bad. If onlt the back side has gas, replace the filter. Any questions, please reply.

When I pump gas, the gas pump clicks off every few seconds or so. I can't get more than 2 gallons in the tank before it clicks off. I takes me like 10 minutes to fill my tank.

is this happening at the same pump??? Each pump has a tiny vacuum line that's located in the spout. When the gas reaches a certain level and starts to cause a vacuum, the pump shuts off

1985 toyota pick up fuel pump replacement

good way to tell if its your fuel is to open your gas tank lid and have some turn the key to "on" and listing for a click. if it clicks its good, if it doesnt its bad, if its bad check on your frame of the truck from where the gas tank is up to your firewall, if not there the fuel pump could be internal, which means you would have to drop your gas tank to replace the pump.
