    Ok, so for a number of months I've had problems at the pumps. I had originally thought it was the pump I went to, so I went to another one to find the same thing happening. Every once in a while I've had luck at high pressure handles that don't disengage on me, but for the most part I get about half a gallon, then have to put-put it the rest of the way. If I full throttle the pump it usually disengages right away.

    On Wednesday I filled up to 6 gallons(took me about 10 minutes) and then it started overflowing on me which is bull****, I was under 1/4 tank. So on friday I was at the pump and barely got too 2 gallons before it started doing it again. And this time I couldn't even creep it along. It shut off if I pulled the handle at all. So I ripped that stupid plastic guard from the passenger side rear tire and took a peak but nothing visibly looks wrong. What the **** is wrong with this thing?! I obviously can't drive much longer like this or else I won't ever pump gas again. I have about 3 gallons as it sits now and I need to know what I can do to fix this. I've started taking clamps off the rubber hoses but they are glued onto the feeder pipes or something. Any tips on how to get them loose & what else should I be looking for/trying?

    My bet is on the charcoal canister or one of its lines being plugged.

    Nope, no check lights.

    And by charcoal canister, you don't mean this thing by any chance, do you?

    If you DO, then all those hoses are glued to it and the other pipes. I couldn't get them loose for my life. If you didn't mean that thing, then I'm not sure what you are referring too. My knowledge on new problems is usually no knowledge until I do it all myself.

    calgary,
    Maybe take a look at the line from the fuel tank to where you fill it up. if it's kinked at all that might be the problem causing backpressure making the fuel to disenage or just to trickle out

    Has the car been siphoned from? Is the flap in the filler neck bent or out of place? Is the filler nozzle reaching all the way down through it?
