Whats wrong with my fuel system

Asked by Oct 23, 2015 at 02:13 AM about the 2004 Dodge Stratus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 Dodge Stratus has issues when putting gas in.  When I put gas in I have to do it real slow or it backs up and shuts the pump off.  I also have an issue after driving and shutting off the engine it sounds like my fuel pump is still running but if I take the gas cap off it's like a vacuum goes away and then the noise stops.  I've only had the car for a year so I don't know what it was like new.  Any help will be appreciated.
