My '06 Silverado does something similar, though I don't have any gas which comes back out at me if I try again. Simply what I do to avoid having the gas filler nozzle not click off on me is to rotate the nozzle about 45° counter-clockwise, so the nozzle and filler hose are at about the 10 to 4 o'clock orientation. (NOTE: Please forgive my crude ...
I'd suspect some kind of blockage or restriction in the filler - possibly the hose itself has partially collapsed, or the non-return valve is stuck, stopping the fuel from running down into the tank properly - by the time you got to the second service station, the fuel had worked it's way past the obstruction into the tank, so you could do it again.
More than likely what the problem is, your float in the fuel bowl is shot. When the float is shot (ie: doesn't float correctly in the fuel), too much fuel is let into the carburetor and causes the exact issues you are talking about. You may be able to get a new float and needle valve (very likely), but you may just be better off buying a new carburetor. ...
I drive a 2014 Civic EX coupe, automatic, and about a week ago turned the Econ button off... the icon light on the dash turned off. I bought the car several months ago and it didn't occur to me until now to try this. Performance has been about the same, but my mileage has actually INCREASED 3-4 MPG! Go figure.
Depending on the make/model/engine, you might be able to find a newer version of the engine that already had EFI installed. If this is the case, you can search local junkyards and ebay to find a wiring harness, ECU, sensors, intake and exhaust manifolds.
Converting Carb to EFI is possible , it can be a DIY if you know what you are doing. You can start by looking for the below basic things to get a rough idea of the work you are going to do. Fuel Injectors Throttle Body An ECU All of the sensors(MAP,O2 etc) New Ignition system(Recommended not mandatory) Fuel Pump Fuel Pressure regulator A whole lot of ...
Depending on the application, there are lots of options for changing over to EFI from carburetor. Your best bet, especially if you're not a professional, is to find a system which is plug-n-play. Trying to find one which is compatible by retrofitting it from another vehicle would not only prove difficult, but would be very frustrating when it comes time to ...
Fault Code P0462 reads out - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Low Input and could be caused by - - Faulty fuel level sensor - Fuel level sensor harness is open or shorted - Fuel level sensor circuit poor electrical connection - Combination meter Since you're getting the right output when the tank is topped up, this is most likely a failing sensor. The check ...
It gives you 6% less horsepower with 6% more fuel efficiency.
You are right, it doesn't matter where the pumping occurs, but it usually works better if the fuel pump is below the level of the fuel. It does matter how the pumping occurs and varies widely by application. There are different fuel pumps out there. Some are inside the tank. Others are outside (inline) the tank. You are primarily thinking of fuel injection ...
