I know a lot of us have this problem of the pump stopping after a few seconds every time we fill up. Here's a thread I posted a while back: http://www.tbssowners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62288

Is there any certain fix to this?? Cause I have tried every single possible change in the way I fuel up... AKA it's not the angle or the backpressure or the way it's tilted etc.

Any insight is greatly appreciated I fucking hate dealing with this every time I fill up.

I've just pulled the gas pump out a little bit so that it is halfway in the hole and let it go. I've never had it stop every few seconds since I've started doing that.

I thnk the reason is that the filler tube diameter is smaller than what some of the older cars used. My Buick had like a 2" tube. I havent measured it, but just looking at it, it cant be over 1" ID, if even that big. You could always make a bigger tube and then let us know how it works!! :)

If the Charcoal Canister is full of water and fuel it will cause the same issue. You can pull it and drain it out.
:iamwithstupid:

ive said this before - this can happen when people keep trying to get that little extra gas in the tank - what happens is the fuel back up to the nozzle and if done to many times, the vent return will drain the gas into the canister causing this problem.


i too have never had this happen before.

The canister is located after the axle on the driverside. You cant miss it with all the lines going into it. Like stated above the fuel can back up into the canister and fill it up. You will be shocked at what comes out of it.

Ok I'll do that tomorrow. Is there any possibility of me screwing anything up by taking it out and emptying it? Just makin sure it won't cause any problems

pardon me but when you say after the axle you mean towards the front or rear of the truck. I didn't see anything that looked like a canister, but I found a bunch of lines near the axle and next to the line that connects to the gas tank. There were three or four of them held together somewhat. Here's a shitty picture:

Edit: These are on the driver's side, for what it's worth
