2000 Chevrolet Venture Question: My Venture's not taking fuel at the pump.

 

Question

Every time I go to put fuel in my old girl, she takes about 2 litres before the pump nozzle starts clicking and whatnot. Fuel generally starts spitting out at around the $3.00 mark. She's pretty much empty, so either I have a blockage in my input line, or a hell of a lot of pressure in the tank. I've tried to release some pressure by removing the #32 fuel pump release fuse while running the engine, to no avail. I'd like to fix it myself, if possible; but this would be my first time at getting into the fuel tank side of things, so any advice would be much appreciated. Cheers,
Jim

    not that bad.it is either by the fuel tank on the passenger side or on the top of the tank. i suggest letting a shop verify the failure and give you a bid.
