Having problems getting fuel to go in the gas tank. Keeps shutting off the pump like it was filled up but the tank was empty and it shut off right away. Can get it to go in but at a slow trickle. It does not matter how far the fuel handle is put in the tank.
Do you
have the same problem?

SAME PROBLEM HERE!

I HAVE A 1977 CJ 5

IT HAS A VENT HOSE, WHICH TRAVELS FROM THE TANK. ALL THE WAY UP CLOSE TO THE FILL PORT. THEN "TEES" BACK INTO THE MAIN FILL HOSE

COOL IDEA!

SHOULD WORK!

DON'T.

I INVESTIGATED IT FULLY

NO KINKS

TOOK IT LOOSE FROM THE TANK AND "RODDED" IT (I'M A PLUMBER!)

IT IS CLEAR!

MADE AN OBSERVATION

1976-1978 CJs

JUST AS SOON AS THE FUEL ENTERS IN THE BIG FUEL HOSE

IT MAKES A 90 DEGREE TURN

THAT'S MY PROBLEM!

PROBABLY SAME, FOR ALL OF THE OTHER "PROUD JEEP OWNERS OF THOSE YEARS"!

I CHEAT THE SYSTEM!

I MUST BE CAUTIOUS!

TURN THE SPOUT

UPSIDE DOWN AND FILL!

IT WON'T CUT OFF

CAN'T RUN WIDE OPEN

IT WILL "BACK SPRAY"!

IT WILL "MOST OF THE TIME"

WILL NOT CUT OFF WHEN FULL!

GOTTA STAY ON TOP OF IT!

LET GO

WHEN YOU HEAR IT NEARING THE TOP!

IT IS A BUNCH MORE FASTER THOUGH!

CHECK YOUR "STUFF" (PARTS/SYSTEM) OUT 1ST, AS I DID!

THEN

"USING YOUR OWN CAUTIOUS JUDGEMENT"

DO, WHATCHU GOTTA DO!

REPORT BACK WITH FINDINGS. PLEASE!

I WILL ATTEMPT TO FIND DIAGRAMS OF YOUR STUFF.I SAID TRY. NO, I SAID, "ATTEMPT"!

THE MEDIC

I HAVE 2 JEEPS!

OK FELLERS

YOU KNOW BY NOW

IMMA JEEP GUY!

WITHOUT KNOWING SPECIFIC MODELS LIKE "LX", "SE", "SHO"

I PLUGGED IN "LX". STILL MAY NOT HAVE GOT THAT. THE ON-LINE MANUAL GETS CONFUSING!

I MUST HELP YOU CAR GUYS, IF CARS WEREN'T AROUND, JEEPS WOULD NOT "STAND OUT"!

THERE MAY BE MORE DIAGRAMS,

I JUST CAN'T FIND 'EM

LOOKS LIKE "MAYBE" YA'LL MIGHT HAVE A CHECK VALVE IN THE LINE!

MAYBE IT'S STUCK/ OR PARTIALLY STUCK!

'ROUND HERE, "MR. SIPHONER" COULD HAVE DAMAGED IT! LOL. COM'ON THAT WAS A LITTLE FUNNY!

1ST DIAGRAM IS WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE.2ND (BOTTOM LEFT) IS WHERE IT MAY BE LOCATED.

AGAIN, FINDINGS. GOTTA KNOW THE END OF THE SOAP OPERA!
