You have one of two, maybe both problems. E4U nailed one cause with the canister. If you were in the habit of 'topping off' a few extra cents worth after it automatically clicked off, you run the risk of spilling fuel into the evap lines that connect to the charcoal canister. Once gas is in there, the charcoal clots and coagulates and turns into a brick. Once it is a brick, there will be no flow for the air in the tank to displace, thereby shutting off your fuel dispenser. The other possibility is the vent valve, or vent solenoid. Once that air flows through the canister, it is released to the atmosphere via the vent valve. If that vent, witch is electrically operated, is bad and stuck closed, then it will back up the pressure and click off the dispenser. Both conditions should set a code and set your check engine light.

ALSO--- one or more of the evap lines may have been damaged, crimped, or otherwise blocked. during the replacement of the fuel pump. If you dropped the tank to do the pump, it's also possible to kink or otherwise mess up the filler hose between the cap and the tank. I would look there first, especially if it's not setting a code.

I know this post was long ago but I just come across and my vehicle check engine light is on, gas vapor smell, and gas pump at gas station constantly cuts off when trying to pump gas. Any idea?

Default Fuel Leak while pumping gas

I currently have a 2011 Ford Fiesta . I noticed a fuel leakage underneath on the passenger side while gas is being pumped into the car. It usually is a small puddle. Also the gas nozzle continue to click off while the gas is being pumped in. The only way I can tell if the tank is full is to estimate how much gas is needed. Not sure if there is a hole in the nozzle that is causing the leakage while the gas is being pumped in or if there is a blockage that is cause the nozzle to continue to click off. I was told it may be blockage and it will cost $50 just to look at it but no estimated price on the cost to fix it. Any idea's?

There is a carbon filter on the cars filler neck that needs to be changed periodically. They become dirty and clogged over time. When filling the car the fuel can't flow through as fast and back up shutting off the pump.

Has anyone tried letting the nozzle sit out an inch or so while it runs full speed.

This is my job all day. I work at BP.

I think I maybe had "3" cars out of thousands where the only thing I could do was stand there and hold it on the slightly slower mode, where the trick I described didn't work. That, and Honda Odyssey minivans sometimes we're stubborn. I'm a pro gas jockey.........
