    I have a 93 New Yorker with 110 K miles and a 3.3L motor. When I go
    to fill the tank up the pump at the gas station will stop before it is
    full. I end up having to stop pumping or put the gas in slower.

    I have the fill nozal only in part way to help air get out but it does
    not help.

    Any ideas?


    P.S. Only reply back to this new group since the mail to me will

    Gas pump nozzles have an auto shutoff device that will shut the gas pump to
    prevent spillage from overfilling. First try another pump and see if the
    problem persists, if yes your fill tube may have some blockage that causes gas
    to drain slowly as you are filling, hence the problem. See if the problem
    persists if you pump slowly. If no, then most likely cause is a partially
    blocked fill tube.

    rollover ball, the ball may be faulty and not raising to get the full in the
