I have a 2000 Impala and today when I filled up it would not take fuel unless you dribble it in. Never had an issue with this before has anyone else experienced this before ?
I've had this happen on different cars here and there. It's generally a pump thing. The automatic shutoff for the pump is out of whack and the little blowback from the fuel rushing into your filler neck is enough to trigger the shutoff. Use a different pump at that station next time and I'll bet you don't have the same problem.
I had this issue once on a Diesel truck - actually it was a prototype, but I digress - what the issue was there was some moisture had gotten into the vent line and frozen.
The good news is that in that particular Diesel truck, you can drive from Detroit to Sault Ste. Marie on one tankful... (otherwise I would have been one hurtin' unit, it's cold in Michigan in the winter, and there's a lot of nowhere in between those two locations...)
Must have been 100 years ago Nate because there's a gas station every few miles these days. Even back when we took the ferry across the straights before there was a bridge, finding gas was no problem.
I had this problem after i had a fuel pump installed on my 95 blazer. I didnt realize it soon enough to get it fixed since i was probably driving a different car. Lasted several years till i paid the dealer last summer to fix it then the damn car dies over Christmas.
Anyway, I think its either the air vent from the tank to the fill hole or the fill pipe itself is pinched. Or perhaps ice in the vent or fill pipe.
