Fuel nozzle issues...

Hi everyone,

My '04 Terminator has an issue with the fuel nozzles at gas stations kicking off with anything more than a trickle of fuel going into the tank. The dealer replaced the plastic line that goes from the tank to the charcoal canister up front and said that would fix my nozzle issue. They were wrong. It sounds to me that the tank isn't venting the pressure from the fuel nozzle fast enough, and that's causing the nozzle to kick off.

I've tried different gas stations, nozzle in, nozzle out, nozzle upside down all to no effect. It takes me 15 minutes to fill the tank from almost empty.

Any thoughts or suggestions on where or what lines might be causing the nozzle to kick off all the time, and how to fix it?

The Sandman had the same problem with his Shelby GT500 at one time and the dealer fixed it. You might want to ask him what parts they replaced.
