2004 Honda Pilot Question: Honda dealership did not do Wheel Alignment.

 

Question

Visitor, 3.5L V6, Gardena, CA, August 01, 2010, 21:21

July 25th and july 31 @ norm reeves honda, cerritos I believed they did not do a good job on wheel alignment as I am coming for the the 3rd time for the same problem. Today Aug 1 just found out that when filling up gas at the
gas station the gas pump shuts off automaically although i only put 2 gallons in for almost empty gas tank before
I went to the dealership to fix wheel alignment.What do I do if this problem still exist. I am just worried that the dealer may create another problem if I leave my car all day. Just thinking if all dealership are trying to make it worse before they make it better.

    It sounds like the fuel level gauge or sender unit in the fuel tank maybe bad but that would in no way b related to a problem with the wheel alignment. issues. Wheel alignment will show up with tires worn on the inner or outer edges, or other unusual tire wear issues.

    I am sorry, but how can adjusting the wheels cause your gas tank to misbehave? How can you believe that?
    Typically, one of the emision control systems will be mis-behaving causeing a vacume or loss of vacume in the tank. This will cause the gas pump to think the tank is full and it will shut off.
