Ok, i took my girlfriends car up to the local mechanic, left it up there, and asked them to go through a scan to check a few FRONT END parts, so that was fine and everything. Same day after pick up we go to fill up the car, and it was fine until about 8 dollars and the fuel exploded out from where the nozzle goes in, thus causing a scene. So today i tried it again, same damnned thing, But if i go slow like every .75 to a dollar and stop, and let it equalize, its ok, it took ten minutes to put 8 dollars in, never had a problem before, i asked around today and i heard things about a vent for air? is there another vent to release gas fumes from the tank besides the nozzle? is there anything i can try? and should i reset my battery? and btw, the guage is way off now, it changes whenever it wants, and idk what the heck happend, thanks for the help
May have just been a fluke, but I have been looking around and this is a common occurance to many vehicles, there is a filter, or vent, on top of your gas tank, when you try to pour gas from a gas can, if the top part is not open, gas doesnt fill, its the same for a car. It makes perfect sense. I need to know the location of this part, and i saw you can blow it out with Co2. She lives in a woodsy and a swampish place, perfect for spiders and stuff, so I'm thinking that there are webs clogged up in the vent, just so weird for it to happen right after i take it to the mechanic.
I loooked under the car today and noticed a smaller line going to the filling nozzle, its above the main line where you fill yoiur car, i think this is the vents that relieve air pressure in the tank while filling with gasoline. I took co2 and tried blowing it out, but i went to fill up the car today, and it went a little better, mind you i left the cap off all night, and this morning until i filled. It still clicked when i filled, but filled faster, and did not blow out. Is it the gas cap? Maybe a way to pressurize the tank to clear out the vents to the tank?
