'01 Gas Problem

Recommended Posts

Guest rcarpenter

I have an ’01 corolla with 120K miles and a gas problem. The fuel tank doesn’t want to accept gas when I put the nozzle in and press the trigger to fill the tank. The handle clicks off as it does when the tank is full, though the tank is completely empty. It will only accept gas if I barely depress the trigger and dribble the gas in, and even then gas bubbles out. The gas sounds like it is gurgling slowly down a long pipe. It takes 12-15 minutes to fill up. I tried different gas stations and different brands of gas. Other than that, the car runs great. No warning lights. Running dry in Texas!

Could be a blocked vent, or it may be that the nozzle is just not in correctly. I frequently have to reset the nozzle or hold it until it works as I press on it. Usually it works after the second ry.
