2009 Escape: Door to fill gas (cap-less) tank won't allow gas pump spout - hole is coved by metal


Asked by Apr 17, 2014 at 11:28 PM about the Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Tonight when trying to get gas we opened the door (cap less) and went to put the gas
spout in...there was metal covering the hole!
  Is there a switch or fuse we need to check?    Is this always closed and suppose to
open when the Door is opened?
  We had to leave with no gas...barely made it home.
