confused Problem Pumping Gas

Hey Guys, Sorry if this is a repeat post but I have this problem with my 1999 Mustang GT, Last summer I had to take the gas tank off to fix a seal between the fuel tube and the tank. Ever since I have ever so delicately connected everything back together I am unable to have a continuously flow of gas from the Gas Pump (at the gas station) to the tank. I think its pressure lock but I am unsure where at, I have removed all tubes and replaced but still no luck. Does any one have any idea what I'm doing wrong or misplacing?

Re: Problem Pumping Gas

This happens to me at several gas stations on my 98 Mountaineer and 91 Mustang.

Try setting the pump nozzle trigger for 1 setting lower. This has worked on mine. It is my belief that some pumps these days have higher flow rates which causes the check valve to shut down the nozzle on cars with restricted filler necks.

Could be an evap check valve or pinched hose- but there is no way the little hose could allow venting through the small tubing when filling the tank to be the cause.
