I can hardly get gas in my car, I have to hold the gas nosal upside down and run it as slow as it will go or it will just shut off. it takes about 15-20 minutes to gat it full

1 Answer

Not a sensor but there is an EVAP tube to collect the air and fumes that are displaced when filling up. It goes to a charcoal canister that soaks up the fumes and is purged when you start the car. That vent tube may be blocked or the valve on the EVAP canister stuck closed. Or yet still, the valve is not opening to purge and the canister is saturated with liquid gasoline and not accepting anything in. Bottom line, is ask to have your EVAP system checked
