I had this same problem with my Land Rover Discovery. The gas pump shuts off when gas covers a small tube in the tip of the pump handle which triggers the shut off mechanism. If the gas is extra foamy one day it can trigger this mechanism. With my Land Rover, there was a bend in the filler hose just past where the tube would sit when I was filling it up with gas. This would cause some splashing near the tip of the pump handle shutting off the pump. I was able to pull the pump tip out a little bit so that it wasn't inserted all the way into the filler, that way it wasn't as close to the bend in the hose and the splashing didn't affect the shut off mechanism. When I did this I could walk away and let the pump fill the tank all the way. This could be the same problem you're having. Try pulling the handle out a little bit and see if that helps.

Good Luck!

AFTER I PUT GAS THE CAR WON'T STAR UNTILL I PUSH THE GAS PEDAL AND I HAVE TO KEEP PUSHING SO THAT I WONT SHUT OFF


If you have this problem only when you fill your tank I would check the fuel filter first. The fuel pump will also give you problems after filling the tank due to the extra load.

When pumping gas the pump constantly disengages as if the tank were full - it doesn't matter which station or pump. It goes off about 10 times while filling the tank. I've taken it to the dealer...


Back pressure is going into the gas pump handle. If you havent already done so, when filling your car play around with putting the gas pump handle tube in at a different angle. My car often gives me the shits doing this too. I find that if I turn the handle so that it is at right angles or even completely upside down with the tube pointing in a different direction within the fuel intake on my car it works fine. Can be frustrating though particularly on high flow pumps.

Every time you try to pump gas, the gas pump shuts off every 5 seconds. Doesn't matter how slow or fast you allow gas to come out. Doesn't matter what gas station. You never know when it is filled. Gas...


try disconnecting the fuel line leading into the fuel pump, let out a little fuel, then reconnect it. then disconnect the fuel line leading out of the fuel pump, letting out a little fuel.
if that doesnt work, run the car completely out of gas once. turn the engine over a few times while empty.
have you tried pumping gas with the enigine running? see if that helps. if this does help, it is probably the vacuum someplace, near the fuel injectors?

I,m having trouble filling my gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off.


The vent on the tank is restricted and the pump nozzle can't take all the air coming from the tank as it fills. Many gas stations across the country have vapor recovery nozzles designed to capture air from your fuel tank and vent it back into the tank under ground, and out the roof vent pipe on top of the building. It's for fuel vapor emissions reduction. Until you put a few gallons in the tank, pull the boot back a little with your fingers to unseat it from the filler neck, then let go and you should be o.k. If it keeps shuting off after that, then you may have a problem with your own vapor recovery system not working properly. Check other nozzles and see if they all are that way. Mabe it's the station.

Cannot fill truck with gas.the gas pump will shut off no matter how slow i try to fill the tank.


there's a ball in side the filler neck, if that ball stuck gas will push upward and cause the pressure to shut the pump.
you can remove the filler neck to inspect for the ball stuck in there

We have trouble filling the gas tank on our 2002 echo. The pump keeps shutting off


sorry to say, this is typical of the echo, after a couple yrs, the fill tube begins collapsing, not allowing enuff fuel flow,, your alternatives are to replacew the fill tubes, or to just pump fuel very slowly.

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.

Sensor won't allow full tank of gas


I'd have to check your evap system. Any applicable trouble codes?
When you fill-up, the air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back-up the fill pipe and shut off the gas pump. I'm not that familiar with your particular emission system. Just my 2 cents.

It may be just a hose. You can get that fixed at a shop for cheap and then you can put more power fluid in. In should work then.
