2000 Taurus SES
Most annoying car in the world to fuel up. There has to be something wrong with it. I'll try to describe it the best I can.
So, you know the safety measure fuel pumps have where they "click" off when the tank is full to prevent overflow? Yeah, well the taurus makes the pump think it's full every second. If you hold the pump wide open, it will shut off immediately. I can barely do 1/4 throttle on the pump, basically it takes 10 minutes to fill the tank, not to mention people thinking I'm retarded and don't know how to work the pump.
Please, don't say things like "you just have to find the sweet spot." Trust me, I've tried it at all angles, up, down, pushed in all the way, pulled out half way, pulled out most of the way, it doesn't matter, the thing still turns off. Most annoying thing in the world.
I suspect something is wrong with the gas tank filler neck, and it's not allowing fuel to enter the gas tank quickly enough, causing backup and ultimately shutting off the pump.
Is this a common problem, and is there a simple solution? Anything I should look at or try out?
Let me know, thanks.
