Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1995 e150 cannot add gas... back pressure turns off pump but can add a little at a time via 1 gallon can.. but did hear a chug chug sound as gas was slowly going into tank.  seems not to be able to vent air out to allow gas to flow into tank.

You would be correct you need yo check the vent probably clogged with dirt and can be easily cleaned out.
