1999 Plymouth Prowler Question: won't accept fuel, acts like already full

 

Question

Visitor, 3.5L V6, Southlake, TX, April 20, 2011, 07:52

I was told the pressure valve in the gas tank is stuck open
and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole tank.
Any suggestions? If not where can I buy a replacement tank?

    first of all, the vent valve in the evap system is stuck closed, not open. that is why the air cannot escape from the tank o allow fuel into the tank.
    second, you can secure a tank from the dealer or aftermarket at a parts store.

    before doing this, i would get a second opinion from another shop as it sounds like the person who told you this may not be too familiar with the systems operation.

    thanks for using repairpal
