If you start refueling again, can you eventually fill the tank?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No I can not fill the tank. It shuts off after just a few pints of fuel.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is there a vent hose that could be blocked?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No the pump shuts off almost immediately.
Chevy Mechanic: Dave Nova, Chevrolet Technician replied 2 years ago

The tank vents to a canister, the canister then vents through a vent solenoid. The vent solenoid may be stuck closed, this is the most common cause. The vent solenoid is located over the right side muffler. Try disconnecting the vent hose from the solenoid to see if this eliminates the problem. If it does, replace the solenoid.
