2005 mustang, when filling with gas, the pump nozzel shuts off. I can hear the fill pipe gurgle then the pump shuts off. it will only take 15 cents worth of gas at a time. when your trying to put $ 20.00 of gas in it takes a long time. Ive tried turnig the nozzel in differt directions, shaking the car as its filling, I also went to 4 differnt gas stations but nothing works.

Gas Pump pressure could be cause, try slower pump handel setting. If that doesn't correct it, filler neck maybe issue. Check vent tube for kinks or obstruction. If that doesn't solve it, speak with dealer service department, sometimes Factory knows of issue and my have service information at dealerships or call factory and ask them if they know of problem.

Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.


Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

To pump gas into my 2005 chev truck is a very slow process. The nozzel will kick off unless you go very slow


The nozzle may be going too far into the tank. Try holding the nozzle about half way into the tank fill tube.

2000 Lincoln Continental. Won't fill with gas without pump clicking off every 20 cents worth . No matter which pump I fill at. Happens always. No accidents ever with this car. No visible kinks in both...


this car has a closed fuel system,and the air pressure coming back out the filler tube is shutting off the pump,only answer is hold the gun and fill slowly.........do not over fill.

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.


The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank


I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

Can't get gas to go in tank, and it will spit out gas


there is a breather pipe running long the filler pipe, if u look at the furl cap there should be a small hole that lets out air as u fill up, i think that this is blocked .
