I am having an issue with the gas tank on my 2004 Sentra 1.8. When I attempt to pump gas the car acts as if it is full and tries to stop me from pumping gas. I had the charcoal canister cleaned out a couple months back which made the problem less persistent but still present.

Recently it has worsened again to the point where I again have to try to get it fixed as it is very frustrating trying to pump gas.

Any thoughts on what it could be? My mechanic isn't too sure what the problem is and his next course of action is to remove the tank and see if there is anything he can find causing it which is an expensive path to go down due to labour.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

The vent control valve, attached to the canister, is stuck closed. I had this EXACT thing happen to a Nissan Armada, at work.

most likely its ur Evap cannister also could be your Gas tank. they had a recall on the gas tank. i had the same problem. replaced my gas tank. and no more problem. check the recall on the 04 . i have a 05 and mine did. just my vin was not on the recall list so i had to pay out of my pocket.
