Not sure I understand your question.
Everytime the gas cap is removed pressure inside the tank is equalized with outside air.
If you run the tank empty you can damage the pump, which would cause a lack of fuel in the line to the injectors.

My 06 rendezvous keeps dying when it's hot out above 70 degrees is this a o2 sensor and is their a sensor in the gas tank


It might be vapor locked..It's caused from overfilling you gas tank all the time...It's when the pressure in your gas tank becomes greater than your gas pump...The car will shut off...If this is what it is just loosen the gas cap and the car will crank immediately..While opening the gas cap it would be sucking in air.. Sometimes people put a aftermarket gas cap on there car without any ventilation..The correct way to fix is the change the charcoal filter in the line running back to the carburetor..Over the years of over filling your car..the gas has made the filter hard inside and that causes vapor lock...Alway only go to the next nickel when filling up your car at the gas station...Hope this helps

Took 1/2 hr to get 20 $ worth of gas into tank because of air lock ? also now my gas gauge is not moving from empty ? 09 Caliber


That's about three minutes per gallon. Are you quite sure it isn't leaking out? Air locking can be handled with a piece of hose that reaches into the pipe but leaves room for filling. Just be sure it isn't soluble in gasoline or can be pushed into the tank.

Can`t get gas to go in the gas tank only a little at a time


There is gasoline in the vent tube blocking air from exiting the tank. This happens when you over fill the tank. With an almost empty tank, leave off the gas cap and VERY gently apply compressed air to the vent tube. Once cleared the tank will fill normally.

Night be vapor locked..What's that? It when your gas tank pressure becomes greater than your gas pump...You'll be driving then it just shuts off like running out if gas... Quick fix? Open your gas cap and leave it Lise to get air into your gas tank..Clue if this is the problem...Your car will start immediately. Hints...Listen when you loosen gas cap...Can you hear air sucking back into your gas tank. Cheap fix..Take the smallest drill bit and drill a hole into the center of the gas tank..It also could be a replacement gas cap that someone put on the car..Buy the original cap..What caused the problem to start with? Over filling your gas tankk..Putting that extra 75cent to top it off..Your cars gas tank is designed to burn fumes...When you over fill a tank it sends gasoline down those vapor hoses then into a charcoal canister..Over years if doing this...It gets clogged up then the fumes can't get out the tank...It builds up pressure and becomes greater than your gas pump...Then it shuts off...If you wait long enough....it will start back...This sounds crazy....But this could really be your problem...Next time the car shuts off... loosen gas car...If it starts...BINGO....You have solved your problem... Drill a hole in gas cap or buy another canister... Usually behind the headlights... Some under car..Follow the gas line... Hope this helps you or someone else....Stop over filling your gas tanks...You'll keep this from happening....Tell others

When fuelling only a spoonful goes into the tank befoe the nozell shuts off.


Sometimes the fuel venting system does not release the vacuum enough to allow refueling. You would think that opening the gas-cap would vent everything, but it does not. The evaporator canister solenoid valve could be sticking.

Also check your gas tank straps. One strap could be loose or the fuel-pump could have been replaced and the tank rehung crooked. If you imagine filling the tank, you need the high side by the tank filler neck.

Check with a Chrysler dealer about any service bulletins regarding fixes for your problem. They may have a redesigned filler neck to eliminate the air lock you are experiencing.

Stop at gas station after driving 250 miles in my 2000 s10 extreme and pump shuts off like tank is full after 3 gallons of gas go in...should take 11 or so gallons. Also gas gauge stays on full and will...


sounds like you have a restriction in the fuel inlet pipe,( maybe air locking) also your tank sender unit neads replacing to fix you gauge fault, or it maybe that it has something that is not alowingf it to move freely inside the tank, have a good look inside when low on fuel. through the hole where the sender is fitted.

Water in the gas tank


i would go up and get some HEAT they sell it at any auto store it treats up to 15 gallons of gas. HEAT takes the water and trapes it so that there isn't much water left into the tank and allowes the gas to run like it is supposed to..
