2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Q&A
2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: Gas pump keeps shutting off like the tank is full when it's not - gas vent problem?
Hello Hossman, Bill from Milex Auto Repair. I would check the vent for the tank and make sure it's not pinched. Has any work been done at the tank recently , fuel pump ? If so possible it has been pinched when reinstalled. If not start with the vent hose first. Be happy to check it out for you if you don't find the solution. - Visitor
Don't put the nozzle in so far, try to keep nozzle out as close to the edge as possible, also don't let the tank get close to empty, refill at 1/2 a tank full. - Visitor
I had the same problem. The repair shop replaced the vent hose (it was pinched) and that solved the problem.... for about 3 weeks. Now it won't fill correctly again. There must be something that is causing a vacuum and collapsing the hose. So far I have not found an answer to what would collapse the hose. - Visitor
