Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The issue that you are having is going to be the EVAP canister. This a common issue with many different vehicles. What happens is the canister fails and is unable to absorb the fuel vapors leaving the tank with too much pressure. This is why when you try to fuel the tank the gas does want to go in and actually wants to come back out. The vapor already has it too full. Another cause for this would be the vent valve located on the canister. This component allows for vent of the canister and if it is stuck closed, then you will experience the same issue. I would usually replace both at once and cleaning the tank. This will guarantee no further issue. In order to access these components, the tank will need to be removed.

Here I have provided the location and replacement information for the canister along with the labor and part pricing. The labor pricing is listed in hours and depends on the hourly rate of the shop.
