Filling problems, as I interpret your question, are normally associated with one of two problems. There may have been something dropped into the filler pipe and is lying on the strainer in the filler pipe or there is a problem with the vent system and air is not able to vent to allow fuel to fill the tank at the rate the pump is putting it in. In either case, further investigation is required to settle on a fix.

2002hyundai gas filling problem

The shape of the fill tube to your tank is no longer adequately sized for the new high speed pumps at stations, it is most likely creating splashing in the tube which activates the safety switch on the handle to shut off the pump to prevent accidental over filling and spilling of fuel. Next time insert the handle into your vehicle upside down and this should prevent the problem you are experiencing.

Why is my gas tank spitting gas back at me?

There\'s a blockage in the secondary tube (about 15mm diameter) that runs down to the tank, adjacent to the main filler tube. Take the back wheel off and you\'ll see a plastic cover over the whole filler neck assembly. The secondary tube often rust and fills with dirt. The tube can get damaged too, if crushed the gas will spit back.

Is difficult to fill gas tank

Gas pump nozzles have a device in the end that when gasoline runs back up into it, it turns off the fuel flow." There's a tiny hole near the bottom of the gas pump nozzle connected to a small tube.
Normally, air flows through that tube while you're filling and the gas keeps flowing as long as you hold down on the trigger. When that hole gets covered by gasoline (when your tank is full), a vacuum forms inside the nozzle and an automatic shutoff switch gets tripped, turning off the flow of gas with a thunk. Next time your fueling up try to reposition the nozzle.

Gas smell inside the cab only 1999 ford explorer

If you can get a good fuel system pressure monitor, then you would want to hook it up to the test tap on the fuel rail. You would do this to see if the pressure is bleeding down.

Now some of the FRAM brand gas filters were defective and did not securely lock in place. Look under the vehicle to see if there are drips or wetness on the gas lines.

Also check the gas fill tube to the tank. Sometimes the metal clamp securing the tube will rust off and the fill tube can leak.

My 04 Avalanche will not let me fill the gas tank as the fill nozel keeps shutting off as I have now tried to fill at 4 differant pumps. Yes the tank is near empty but I can hear the gas coming up the fill...

Is there a check engine light on? The first thing I would do is look at the vent solenoid. GM has had issues with these either sticking closed or the filter getting plugged.

Find the charcoal canister. It will be mounted near the fuel tank. There should be a large hose attached to it. On the other end of that is is the vent solenoid. Remove it and see if you can fill the tank.

If you can than see if you can blow through the vent solenoid. With it unplugged you should be able to blow through it easily. If you can't than it is broken and needs to be replaced.

I beleive GM has updated the part and routing for that year. You can check with the dealer to see if that is the case.

When I fill-up my ford contour the gas pump keeps clicking off. can only put in a little gas at a time

Check the vent tube which is alongside the gas fill tube. It's either kinked, bent, pinched, or some how blocked, not allowing easy flow of gas into the tank. Once the tube is open, you will not have trouble. You don't give the year, it's possible it needs to be replaced (comes as a unit with the fill tube) if rusting badly.

Filling with gas

There is a fuel tank vent tube that runs down the filler tube to let the air out of the tank as you fill it, these tubes get kinked, replace the tube, this is part of the filler neck assembly so the whole thing must be changed out.

When i fill up the gas tank the alot of gas comes out the bottom onto the ground

You probably have a leak in the fill tube that goes from the gas cap nozzle (where you fill the gas) down to the tank. If you get under the car, or look up through the wheel well (you might have to remove the liner in the well), you should be able to see the fill tube. If it's old, cracked, worn, broken, or has a hole in it, that'd do it for sure. That's my bet anyhow - either a leaking tube due to damage/rust, or if it's a two-piece design, a clamp that has failed and isn't sealing the two halves together.
