Hi, 1st, do you use only one petrol / gas station to fuel your Escape, ? Sometimes the nozzles are faulty, if that not the case, Take off the cap, and there will be an air bypass hose , small in diameter, on some cars they are visible, come up beside the filling hole, it could be blocked, not letting the air escape as fuel goes into your tank, ,Also , with a torch, not a lighter or match, I cant stress that enough, torch!!!, see if the little flap is returning, get ur self a piece of stiff wire, ( clean) eg, coat hanger wire, about 6 inches, 150 mm in length, and push on the flap, it should return, its has a small spring that makes it return, check that, with the same wire, carefully put in the air escape tubes,/ hoses, & make sure they are clear. if your able to access them, if you cant, you may have to find them by taking off the interior panels. As I have not actually seen the Escape fuel system, I am not 100% certain , however, most cars all work on a similar system, Hope this helps, . Please let me know how you get on, I would be happy to help more if needed....Regards
Kipp

    Mechanics use torches all the time, , after they finish their apprenticeship and become fully qualified, their eyes are not replaced with night vision. a 240 v Australia or 110 v US, work shop torch will be absolutely safe. .Maybe some ppl ( Dave K) have trained owls, however here we use workshop torches/ lights, Hope you can sort you prob. . Cheers mate !!

PO441 code comes on- Evap purge control valve. also, when filling the gas tank, the nozzle on the gas pump keeps shutting off before tank is full.


Try not putting fuel nozzle in so far. Fuel flow cuts off on back pressure of the air being displaced by the fuel when filling. Can be a problem with narrow neck tanks and some fuel fillers are more sensitive than others.

Hi Jennifer-
I believe I may be able to help you with the gas spillage you are having when filling the tank. This happened on my 1998 Toyota Camry.
One day, even though I was low on fuel, the attendant had trouble adding gas to my tank. Gas would spill during filling or the nozzle would click off (as though it was full) even though it was not. I had to stand there myself and slowly add gas until the tank was full.
I learned that my car had a thin vent tube that would run from the gas tank to the gas tank opening. As gas is rushing into the tank during filling, the air that is being displaced from the gas tank escapes through this tube. This tube had rusted closed a bit and was restricting the air flow escaping from the tank during pumping causing the problems I described. Once this tube was replaced, my problem was solved!
Hope this helps!

When filling gas tank on 2004 toyota corolla it keeps shutting off as if the gas tank is full, can only put in a little at a time.


When taking gas cap off give it a few seconds for the pressure to escape from the tank. Also you may not be putting the nozzle in far enough for the fume preventor(the rubber thing on the nozzle)to press down. That will make it stop pumping gas. Sometimes you have to press the rubber down when it is cold out.

What else could it be if its not the vent hose??? 2002 ford explorer not letting me pump gas


Do you have any enemies out there into pranks? If someone dropped a ping pong ball into the filler is would stop the fuel from entering the tank. If your talking about it just causing the fuel to have to be added slowly it could just be the crimp at the base that goes into the tank causing back pressure. The 2005 Escape I have has this problem. I have to regulate the fuel pump manually depending on how much pressure they have on the pump the filler will click off like it has a full tank.

When pump gas into fuel tank gas keep cutting off it act like the tank is full


It is the angle and restricter in the fill tube plus the pressure from the pump causing it to do that. There is nothing wrong with this. You need to find the best angle to use when filling the vehicle. I had this same problem in a 2005 Escape. Had had to find the right place to hold the filling handle and the right position to hold the grip to get it to stop.

Why would the gas gauge on a 2005 Chevy Malibu go from full to empty while driving when you know the gas tank is full?


This happens on mine, its got to do with the fuel sensor, I frequently fill up and sometimes keep fueling after the nozzle clicks. This is what caused my problem. I have since stopped fueling immediately after it clicks and have not had the problem. Make sure you arent over filling your tank

Cant put much gas in tank w/o it coming back out


It souds like the air return line from the fuel filler pipe is plugged. When you fill up the car the air has to escape from the tank or else the fuel backs up into the filler neck shutting off the fuel nozzle. The air pipe is housed in the fuel filler pipe and lets the air escape as the fuel is going into the tank. Remove the filler neck and inspect air bypass line to see if it is kinked or plugged.

2004 chevy 2500 wont take gas into gas tank


I am having the same problem. When turning the pump on full speed it will pump for a few seconds before kicking the pump off like the tank is full even though there is no gas in the tank. I can pump gas if I barely start the pump and hold it by hand but very very slowly so it takes about 20 minutes to fill up. Its not the gas station or the way I am holding the nozzle as I have stopped 20 different places and tried every way imaginable to hold the nozzle. I have changed the filler neck, charcoal canister, and the sensor/filter that is on the side of it that I believe opens to allow fuel vapor to escape and let pressure off the tank when the truck is not running... still no luck. When I had the fuel next off there is a check valve that is made into the top next part of the tank that is spring loaded. I figured this was to keep gas from running back out in the event of a rollover and possibly keep someone from putting a hose down the next and stealing gas. At this point that is the only thing that could possibly be causing the pump to contiune to kick off every few seconds when filling up the tank. Next is to change the tank I suppose unless someone has already ran into this issue and can tell me what I need to do to fix the problem.

Ford 2005 Escape


you have a vapor vent tube problem. When fuel goes in, the iar must come out. The filler pipe has a vent pipe inside it. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Try putting the nozzle all the way in & see what happens? Try putting the nozzle in just a little way & see what happens.
Otherwise, you may need a new filler pipe.

Filling up with fuel


Your over flow vent might be a little clogged So if you pull the nozzle out a bit you allow air to push the gas into the tank.
GoodLuck and PEACE
