SOURCE: While filling up our 2000 Toyota Echo at the gas

this is becoming a common problem, what is going on with your car is that as you fill the fuel tank you have to displace the air inside the tank( as the fuel goes in the air has to come out ) this is done by the purge system, as the fuel goes in the air is displaced threw a purge canaster the canster trapes any fuel vapers that are in the displaced air and as you are driving the car the vapors are burned by the engine, this canister is either pluged or the valve that opens and closes the canister is stuck so as you fill the tank the air can not get out so you get back pressure in the fill neck and this causes the pump to shut off, bottom line you need to have the purge system checked. it might be a bad canister or a bad switch could also be one of the hoses to the canaster, heres the bad news to replace almost anything on the system the fuel tank will have to be removed and that can be expenceve....sorry

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.

on every station? try another pump and see.

the decision to stop is on the pump. not your car.

In hospital for over 1 year, my 2002 toyota echo was never started. Can I just siphon out of fill cap? What is best way to get rid of old gasoline. Thank you so very much.


how do you know the gasoline is bad? I have seen vehicles stand for several years and then start okay.Siphoning out through the filler cap is usually fairly hard to do as most cars today have a device in the neck of a tank to stop theft. If you really wanted to remove all the gas I would suggest using a hose of no more than half an inch in diameter. This may just fit down through the filler neck, you would have to play with it to be able to get it all the way to the bottom.

While filling up our 2000 Toyota Echo at the gas station the pump at the gas island keeps shutting off. Takes forever to fill the tank.

What is required for a 2001 toyota echo tune up?


I also have a Echo and would suggest:
Air filter, spark plugs. If it is still sluggish I would then replace the upstream 02 sensor. The fuel filter is apparently lifetime so it should be okay.

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.

Gas doesn't go into tank easily - wants to spit back out. pump keeps clicking off and it takes a long time to put gas in tank. what could problem be? car is a 2000 camry


theres a one way valve in the filler neck of the gas tank and that is spring loaded. it maybe getting jammed up. will need to remove filler necvk and check it's operation. pretty much only thing down there that it could be.

Can not fill 2002 Ford Explorer with gasoline.


Did you check the vent tube alongside the filler neck? If it is pinched or blocked with something, just what you describe will happen. The air in the tank needs some way to escape to make room for the gas, and it should be through the vent tube. If it's bent, pinched, blocked, you will have a hard time pumping gas in.
