Modern gas pumps have a sensor that shuts off the flow of fuel when the tank is full or it senses near the nossle tip. They also have a back splash guard that keeps fuel from splashing back on the handle. If you have some sort of flap inside your fuel tank mouth the pump may sense that the tank is already full or the back splash guard may be keeping the nozzle from fully inserting into the tank causing the same out come. I have a 1977 Triumph Spitfire that requires me to hold the fuel pump in place or the fuel won't pump. Try holding the fuel nozzle in place and see if that makes any difference.

Gas leak

It is called gas tank filler hose. You usually can purchase that rubber hose section seperately at an auto parts store or dealer. Make sure to change clamps also.

I think my fuel pump went out..98 mercury tracer. how do I fix this.. where is the pump. and is there more than one?

you better KNOW its bad... before you replace it, because its a big job, and they wont take it back after you installed it. the gas tank will have to be removed. after you have verified that the pump has power and ground, and it still does not operate THEN it will need replacement.

Nozzel from the gas station clicks off but tank is not full

Are you putting the nozzel all the way in the inlet? Try putting it only part way in so the back wash doesn't hit the shut off sensor on the nozzel.
