Fuelig up with big problem

Hi, I have Contour for 10 years and this problem
comes up every 3-4 months for 3-5 days.
So starting fueling up pump gun stops after 1 liter
like something plugging and after that I'm adding fuel very very slow holding
gun right by the gas tank pipe entrance to watch gas
spilling.
Fueling 10-15 liters takes me 10 or more min.!!!
After 3-4-5 days this something gone and I'm fueling as before
with full pressure for 3-4 or even 6-7 months
Thanks

Re: Fuelig up with big problem

Has it done that for the full ten years you've had it? Did you buy it new?

Welcome to the forums.

Re: Fuelig up with big problem

My Contour 1998 I got it in 2000 and problem starts 4 or 5 years ago
and as I said its happening for 3-4 days after 4-5 months but this 3 days killing me when i'm fueling (line up for 5-6 car in behind and holding gun
10 min to get 10-12 liters!!!???)
So any suggestions

Something must have gotten in the fill pipe. I'd pull the pipe out when it's down below ¾. See if you can find something in there.

I'll try to check the pipe but I don't understand how it's possible something to get in(I know that gas station pumps have filters) and if something in there
why its happened ones in a while

It's possible someone tried to siphon some fuel ansd damaged something that flops over now and then.
