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're going to have to drop the tank...either flush it or replace it~


Nope your are quite incorrect judge its a easy fix and the tank need not to be removed nor flushed. See above comments by me of course. There is a issue with the tank venting
