Typical **** Ford design. Try rotating the bowser nozzle (in the filler hole while fueling) to 3 o'clock or 6 o'clock or 9 o'clock, or even upside down if necc. Or you can try pulling the trigger part-open instead of 'flat-chat' (fast fill) Problem common to 5-10% of cars, good luck.

Having difficulty filling the gas tank. The gas pump keep shutting off when filling the gas tank. It appears that the check valve in the gas tank fill pipe is not workinig properly thus restricting the flow of gas into the tank. It now takes a long time to fill the gas tank. The van has about 98,000 miles on it. Would like to know if this is a common problem on these vans?


Not so much a common problem as it is just! a problem go to a local salvage yard and buy a new filler neck and install it!! its really simple just take the 4-5 screws out of the top filler housing and take a hose clamp off the vent house underneath ... 2005 Dodge Caravan

I have a 99 elantra. When i fill my gas tank, the gas needle never reaches the full mark. It stays on 3/4. This has been going on for a long long time and it is gradually getting worse as far as mileage. I don't remember how much mileage I actually get BC it has been so long since my gauge has worked correctly. The whole motor was rebuilt the beginning of this year and the sending unit was also replaced. When my gauge hits empty, I've driven 176 miles. I filled up last night and it held 8.4 gal


... Hyundai Elantra

When my fuel runs low, approximately 1/4 tank, my car acts as if it's out of gas and dies. I originally thought broken gauge; obvious, right? However, when I filled it up; it didn't take a full tank. Sometimes I'm able to put in 12 gallons; while other times it 'runs out' after only 9 gallons. Either way, it's a 15 gallon tank. I used to be able to get 400 miles out of a fill-up, easy. Now, I find myself filling-up every 240; to avoid being stranded. I've checked for bulges in the tank,


Funny that you mention ' Dark Matter ' -- there is a possibility that you might have water contamination in the tank (?), you can try and get some gas additives that remove water from the fuel. also, there is the possibility that fuel pick up line ... 1999 Mercury Mystique

When I release the gas cap to fill it, there is alot of pressure that bleeds off. Then the gas won't go in not even really slow. When Ido manage to get gas in the tank it will crank for a very long time befor it will start. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks Mistyann


Sounds like the evap valve. Fairly easy, although potentially time-consuming, repair. The entire evap vale assembly should cost under $200. The assembly is right in front of the fuel tank under the truck.\015\012\015\012Jason ... GMC Canyon

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 o ... 2000 Ford Focus

I have a 95 Chrysler cirrus lxi and I have two problems with it. The first one is that the transmission doesn't shift right and It seems like my speedometer is going haywire. The second problem that recently started is that when I start my car it would stall out. The first time this happened my gas tank was half full and I went to get a gas can and filled it with one gallon. It started right up and so I filled the tank all the way. It happened later that day and several other times after.

I have a Toyota Corolla NZE 2001 and I have trouble filling my tank. It fills for 3 or 4 seconds at a time before clicking off and I have to change the angle of the nozzle several times, pull it further out of the tank and do many other things to get the tank full.

My 02 Saturn Sl2 doesn't like to start sometimes if I let the gas get below a quarter tank and then fill it up. I know it's a fuel problem, I changed the filter and pump and cleaned the injectors. The only thing I can think of is that there is rust or dirt or something in the gas tank and when the gas gets low it is sucked up and stops the car from getting fuel. Usually after a few minutes and a few times starting the car and revving it works fine. My question is how much would it cost to pull t

Every time that I get gas in my 2006 Jeep Wrangler I have problems. Several times the gas pump has not shut off when the tank is full resulting in gas pouring out. Usually the opposite happens, the gas pump shuts off long before the tank is full.


Inspect and make sure the vent line from the tank to the filler neck is clear and not kinked and the cannister is not plugged. If both are ok (and usually are) the problem is caused by a sticking control valve on the top of the fuel tank. Unfortunate ... 2006 Jeep Wrangler

But.... when i drive it shakes real bad, like its missing with overdrive off, and also when i take off from a light. it also makes the sound from the motor that it's not getting gas and wants to die when i take off. check engine light


The tank you are using, is the gas new or old? I didn't know if the one your using is that old too. If it is, that gas is bad. I would say your injectors and fuel filter is clogged. ... Ford F-150

Cant fill up 92 jeep yj gas tank. Ok till around $15 dollars and then the gas starts to spit out, like its full. Have to trickle the gas in very slowly inorder for it to not spit back or react like the tank is full and click the gas nozzle off. Takes 1/2 hour to get $35 of gas into the tank which is never more than a little bit than half full. Thanks Steve


It sounds like a problem with your gas tank venting system when the gas is going in that air has to get out of the tank or else it becomes pressureized and once the pressure reaches ahigh enough level the gas will no longer go down to filler tube You ... Jeep Wrangler

2 times now when my 2002 Mercury Sable was low on gas (about 1/8 tank) it died while driving. Both times while it was in the process of dying, it wasn't running rough or RPMs going crazy, the RPMs just slowly and steadly dropped until it died. Both times I couldn't start it up right after. I had to get it towed the 1st time and when I got it to the shop, it started up just fine and couldn't repro the problem (after filling it with about 5 gallons of gas). The 2nd time it started right up after a


Sounds like your gas guage isn't accurate. A fuel pump is not designed to draw fuel from the tank until it is completly dry. This is to avoid sucking up all the debris on the bottom of the tank. ... 2002 Mercury Sable

My 1996 oldsmobile 88 has been running terrible for the last month and gets worse every week. It won't go when I have the gas pedal floored sometimes, and then it will slowly get up to speed but takes a long time just to get to 30 and to shift. And then all of a sudden it will get the gas and go fine, but it always sounds very rough and the whole car shakes. I don't know whats wrong with it and what I need to do to fix it.
