I replaced the gas filler neck on my 1999 dakota. Now, for some reason
I can't pump gas into it without the gas pump nozzel shutting off. The
new filler neck is identical to the old one. The only way to get gas in
is to go very slow. What's wrong. Is there a check valve somewhere in
the line that I may have broken?
At the very bottom of the filler tube in the tank there is a ball in the
filler tube. It may be jammed or hung up take some stiff rubber hose such
as a 5/16 fuel line run it down the filler and see if the float ball is
jammed. The ball float usually rides to the top of the tank itself to
prevent over filling of the tank.
Suddenly, without warning, chuck exclaimed (15-Jul-05 2:33 PM):
Is this only at one gas station or a variety? This is one of those odd
problems I have here in the UK - most UK pumps cause this and I have
pull the nozzle out a bit to get it to pump correctly (and have to be
careful that gas doesn't flow back out!)
I'm starting to learn which local stations don't give me this problem.
Oh, mine's a 2001 Dak.
