SOURCE: Replacing fuel filler neck on 2000 Crown Vic

Good news, no the tank doesn't have to come down. However, there needs to be less than 3/4 tank. Jack it up and set on a jack stand, remove the wheel, four screws housing to pipe, filler pipe sensing hose from filler pipe, screw retaining the cap, four retaining screws from filler pipe, screw from filler pipe retainer, slide into the tank until it can be rotated and pulled out through the fender. lube the tank grommet with clean oil and reverse the removal for install.

SOURCE: 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.

FUEL FILLER PIPE DIAMETER? i just bought a 99 cougar, needs a new fuel filler tube to pas inspection. the part new cost 350, and i dont have that kind of cash. so im going to rig a fuel filler hose onto...

Is the actual filler tube rusted or busted? If so just get a new one from the junkyard, Id not recommend you rig it with a piece of hose for a lot of reasons.

Now if your talking about the little piece of hose that connects the filler neck to the tank, you just need to measure it, and or bring the hose into a parts store. They usually do those hoses in millimeters.
