2007 Chrysler Sebring Automatic 52849 miles

I've been having a problem fueling my sebring. As I am pumping gas the pump will constantly shut off as it normally does when nearly full, but it shuts off throughout the entire time of filling tank. I was in a wreck where I was rear-ended, so I didn't notice this until after. I have tried different stations, as well as pulling nozzle out and turning nozzle. I haven't tried any additives. Any help would greatly be appreciated. I just want to fix this problem before it gets worse. Thanks in advance.

When fuel enters the tank, air must escape. If it can't, what you described will happen. Now, under the car there is a filler tube that runs to the fuel tank. It is where you put the gas in to the tank. Along side if it and at the top, it is part of the filler tube, is the vent that attaches to the fuel tank and allows air to exit the tank. Since you were in an accident, something tells me that the tube may have been damaged and is not allowing air to exit the tank. Craw under the vehicle so you can see what I am describing and check its condition. If everything looks good, disconnect it and see if air flows freely through it.

Let me know what you find.
