shoots back out at us. Not seeing any
check engine lights come on so dont know
where to start looking. The filler neck &
vent hose are not kinked. Anybody have
There is a problem with the gas tank vent. Look up the EVAP system.
There is no gas cap and there is a filler neck that you put gas into the car. Sometimes the little flap that is below the neck will not depress and return to it's original position. This may trigger an idiot light "fuel inlet" and you need to locate your funnel which is in the right rear of the car/interior compartment. Before you get gas, take a carb cleaner and spray into the filler neck and depress the funnel hitting the flap several times. This will remove any debris that is on the flap that keeps it from returning to it's original position. Do this outside of your garage for the carb cleaner may leak onto your floor.
