2002 Suzuki XL7 pumping gas problem


Asked by Mar 07, 2015 at 07:41 PM about the 2002 Suzuki XL-7 Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I pump gas, the gas does not flow into the tank properly, it kicks off the pump, so I have to pump it very slow, other ways keeps kicking off the gas pump.
Do you have any idea what the problem could be?
Thank you

The fuel filter neck vent is likely clogged.


Or it could simply be that you are pushing the gas nozzle to far in. Try backing it out just a little bit and pumping it faster then.
