Hey everyone,I have a 99 Sport. The other day I was filling up my tank when all the sudden, I had a gas spill, it came out of the spicket:confused: . The nozzle didn't click and stop pumping this is the 3rd time its happened. I tried different postions of the nozzle but it didn't work. Anyone know whats going on?

Have you tried different gas stations? Otherwise...

There were some issues with the filler neck on Cateras being "mal-formed". It would have odd angles or blockages from the way it set up improperly. Get a new filler neck installed and it should take care of the problem.

Yep three different gas stations all the same result. I will try getting a new filler neck and see if that fixes the problem thanks

Yikes! I had that happen to my 2000 Catera Sport. I ended up with a puddle of gas on my garage floor one day. The dealer ended up replacing the entire gas tank under warranty with no questions asked. The problem is a venting issue in the fuel filler neck. I don't know if you can replace the neck only as I assume they would have done that.

Good luck,
Jeff
