Archived from groups: alt>autos>dodge (more info?)

Started with yellow check engine light,emissions system checked 3 times
including smoke test,couple of clamps replaced,new vent valve installed after
fuel tank removed,engine light came back on, BUT now the fuel can only be
drizzled into the half empty fuel tank apparently the fuel nozzle is
continuously shut off by back pressure as if the tank is filled to the brim
but isn't.
Computer replaced and a second vent valve installed replacing the first new
vent valve.
Well, the engine light is still off(for 4 days)but still must slowly drizzle
fuel into tank.
Any ideas ? Thanks, Joe the monet_man or should it be Jonah?

Ok, are you the one doing the repairs or is this what was done at the shop?
If the nozzle is shutting off and no gas going in or just a drizzle the
first thing to check is the vent hose at the tank for a restriction. And if
the lite is still on more then likely the leak was not found.

They aren't going to know who I am so my name means nothing. But let me know
what they find.

What was the fault code found and as far as the gas shutting off have you
tried another pump? is it all service stations?

Normally when you have a hard time filling the tank it is due to a blockage
in the vent part of the fuel tank neck . Im wondering if someone tried to
repair that small leak by doing something they weren't supposed to do and
now caused another problem
