Customer Question
My Chrysler Pacifica has...

My Chrysler Pacifica has two issues, the fuel gauge will drop to empty when reaching 1/2 a tank. Also it will spew back and shut the pump off when trying to fill. Slowly can fill it a little at a time . Have had it to a dealer and they put on the charcoal Evaporate canister and two new jet pumps but did not solve the problem, $829.00 worth.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Is there a solution to the problem? Not wanting to pay for new fuel tanks as they are expensive.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Pacifica?

2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pacifica yourself? What have you tried so far?

Took it to a dealer to fix but didn't.

ok the vent valve for the fuel fill is part of the canister assembly. if it still does the same thing there may be a restriction in the fill tube or the vent hose off the canister.

as far as the level, the float needs to be checked to see why this is happening. it is inside the tank and should be checked while it is in operation. can you access the tank unit???

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
