:angry: I have a 2003 C4S tiptronic. Suddenly, I can not pump any fuel into the tank. It splashes back out. Is there some type of solenoid on a vent that would prevent fuel being pumped in?

I'm in trouble. There is not enough fuel in the tank to drive to the dealer!!

Thank you

I have repaired this before on a 2003 996. The car has a rollover valve. There is a fuse in the fuse panel that might have blown. If the fuse is blown, no gasoline will go in. Check this first. Lets us know, thanks.

:clapping: THANK YOU - That was it. Fuse E-6 was blown. This fuse powers the vapor control solenoid. You can actually hear the solenoid when you open the gas fill flap. Apparently this fuse is also the UnSwitched side of the cell phone connector that everyone uses to get power to after market accessories. The switched side of the cell phone connector, which I use for a navigation system is on another fuse. E-7 or 8.

For anyone else with this problem, I could not even get fuel in using a 1 gallon hand can.

Hi Tom; That is amazing, the cell phone was hooked up to the roll-over valve on the cars I fixed. I wonder who is telling the installers to use this fuse?

Hello all,

This is happening to my 2003 C4S right now. I checked the fuse and it's fine.

It will spit up every drop of fuel that you try to put in.

I have another 22 miles before it's empty.

Luckly, I'm home and the dealer is about 17 miles away. :(

What else could be causing this?

Okay, picked up the car this evening.

They found a bad valve in the fuel tank and replaced the hoses too.

It took them 8 hrs. to perform.

They filled it up, and it's back on the road.

It feels like they filled it up with 87 octane though.

I usually give it 100, car lost it's response.

Well, I'll just have to burn it up.

:drive:
