I can't pump gas! Pump keeps clicking off!

I took my Ranger (4.0, 6 Cylinders) to a mechanic to replace the fuel pump, but he must have forgotten something when he reattached the gas tank cuz now I can't pump gas. Is there a vent hose or something?
I'm going nuts at the gas station. $2 of gas take about 6 minutes.

Please help.

It could be the fill tube that may not have gone back on properly. Check to see if its attached properly. It sits inside a bigger tube i think.
But there could be other stuff that causes it to cut off. Mine did it for a while but i just didnt stick the filler in all the way

yes 89 f150 is on the right track there is a vent tube inside the filler tube which allows air to vent out while the fuel flows in your mechanic probably got this tube pinched and didnt realize it.
no big deal either take it back and tell him about it or get your screwdriver out and loosen the hose clamps and have a look yourself.
i think you will find it is twisted slightly or pinched.

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !

There is no tube inside a tube I had one myself. The vent hose is on top of the fiiler tube, but I agree with 351w, you shouldn't have that problem if got it back from a mechanic. That's inhuman.

i had gotten a new fuel filter & pump after a bad, bad gas occasion, and i had the same problem, it was my vent tube, because u are putting fluid into tank with no air present the fill tube is the only way for the air to excape allowing fluid to go into the tank, i have a 99 ranger and my vent was right up on the top left side piece of cake to fix 5 min job
