Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My impala for some reason will not let gas flow through. i go to pump gas and
it acts like it is topped out. constantly clicking off. my dad looked at it and blew
air through the gas line and said it wasnt clogged. any ideas?

Sounds like the vent valve in the gas tank is stuck closed. It's supposed to be open to allow gasoline funds to be pushed into the charcoal canister when fueling. HTH. -Jim

Thank you for the best answer click! I believe on your car it's part of the fuel pump assembly. The charcoal canister should be located behind the driver's side rear wheel. It's a black box with hoses and at least 1 electrical connector on it. HTH. -Jim
