  • New and in trouble HELP ME OUT VAN WILL NOT REFUEL

    I bought this 2001 Dodge Van 7 months ago. Only has 29,000 miles on it. To this point have had not problems went to the refueling station and it will not refuel. I have refueled at least 25 times so fare in the past. What do I do ???????? Runs perfect but without being able to refuel not very useful.

    The first thing to check would be the o ring just inside the tip of the fueling receptacle. If it is cracked or broken the fueling nozzle won't be able to make a seal.

    Did you see other people refueling at the station, or try another station?

      Please also make sure your cylinders / tanks have been inspected within the past 3 years. Some of the older Dodge vans have cylinders which are not as safe as stuff being produced nowadays. Look up a local inspector here:

        I looked inside the receptacle and I don't see any o'ring. This Van was from the federal Government Fleet here in California but I will check to see if the inspections are up to date.
        Where can I get an o'ring what size and the likes.

          Alternate Fuel Technologies in Huntington Beach is pretty close to you 714 842 - 3017 . they will have o-rings , and can replace the nozzle if it is beyond repair for some reason.

              I'm glad that took care of it. Send me a PM with your address and I could send you a couple o-rings if you want.

                    It is a -110 o-ring. Make sure you use a Buna-N o-ring.
