Question about 2003 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

When refueling my 300m the gas nozzle consistantly cuts off. It sounds like the tank is full, but will only accept 40 cents worth of gas. I think it is the anti-siphon screen clogged or the vent. Neither of which I know how to fix.

    The same here. I must press on fuel pistol 10 times before the tank is full. As I've noticed, there is 1 position of fuel pistol when I can fuel the tank normally. But it's hard to place it in that position and it's not normal.

I have a 2003 300m and I had the same problem when mine was brand new. I took it to the dealer and they told me that there was a recall on the filler tube going to the gas tank and fixed it for me. I don't know if that's your problem but it is worth a shot.

I have a 2002 ford windstar sel that won't allow me to put gas in the tank. I was told it has something to do with the gas fume recovery part of the emission system ?


The pump is overly sensitive or you might try slowing down the rate of fill. Also try another spigot for the refueling.

2003 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Cannot put gas in the the tank


Same problem yesterday on my Dad's Jimmy. Left my brother in law stranded cause they couldn't put gas in it. There is a pressure purge valve next to the tank that is supposed to release the pressure on the tank when the engine is shut down. These often fail in Jimmy's and Blazer's and because the tank is still pressurized, the antisiphon valve doesn't open up and this keeps you from putting gas in the tank. You need to replace the part.

Won't take gas


don't insert nozzle in fill hole so deep. It is not getting the air it needs to vent out while your fillinh the tank. Also start off slow on filling the tank, so that the air will start coming out while gas is going into your gas tank. like is said, the tank isnot venting fast enough, to let the gas come into the tank.

The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system consists of a unique fuel tank, flow management valve, fluid control valve, one-way check valve and vapor canister.

The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system is used to remove excess fuel tank vapors. This is done while the vehicle is being refueled..

Fuel flowing into the fuel filler tube (approx. 1 inches I.D.) creates an aspiration effect drawing air into the fuel fill tube. During refueling, the fuel tank is vented to the EVAP canister to capture escaping vapors. With air flowing into the filler tube, there are no fuel vapors escaping to the atmosphere. Once the refueling vapors are captured by the EVAP canister, the vehicle's computer controlled purge system draws vapor out of the canister for the engine to burn. The vapor flow is metered by the purge solenoid so that there is no, or minimal impact on driveability or tailpipe emissions.

As fuel starts to flow through the fuel fill tube, it opens the normally closed check valve and enters the fuel tank. Vapor or air is expelled from the tank through the control valve and on to the vapor canister. Vapor is absorbed in the EVAP canister until vapor flow in the lines stops. This stoppage occurs following fuel shut-off, or by having the fuel level in the tank rise high enough to close the control valve. This control valve contains a float that rises to seal the large diameter vent path to the EVAP canister. At this point in the refueling process, fuel tank pressure increases, the check valve closes (preventing liquid fuel from spiting back at the operator), and fuel then rises up the fuel filler tube to shut off the dispensing nozzle.

Since you don't usually fill up at the exact same pump all the time, and this continually happens, it sounds more like your gas guage may be broken, rather then a default with the tank itself. Try measuring the miles or kilometers you get and compare it to ur car manual to verify this.
