The breether pipe located on the filling pipe can be blocked, it runs from the tank to the filling pipe . take it off at the top of the pipe and blow it to see if it is open.

97 altima messed up gas gauge???


very common problem, esp with high milage, the fuel vent system is plugged, because the charcoal canister has come apart and the particles have traveled thru and plugged the fuel vent valve, what happens is when you add fuel the air in the tank cant vent out as the liquid displaces the air and backs up thru the filler neck, this however can get costly.

There is a system for removing vapors from your fuel tank to protect the environment.
As u use up gas, the tank has more space to accomodate vapor from the gas. When u fill up, this could expand out thru the gas filler pipe and in the air, and be potentially dangerous.
So there is a pipe that leads from your tank to a charcoal canister. A pressure sensor reads the excess pressure in your tank, then opens an electrically controlled valve to allow the vapor to pass thru the charcoal canister, cleaning out the dirty pollutants, and releases the gas into the atmosphere.
A faulty gas cap means that the pressure sensor never reads any pressure and tells the computer that the valve has not opened. The computer then throws up a code indicating an evap leak.

So 1st, as your man said, change the gas cap. Have the engine light switched off at your local garage, or autozone, then drive and see if the light comes back on.
If it does, the evap canister for your vehicle is slightly behind the fuel tank. The spare wheel need to be removed, then the evap canister can be checked out. There are 2 or 3 bolts holding it on. It should be lowered and all the pipes inspected for leaks. Many garages will check for this leak for you with a smoke machine.

Last one I fixed had the inlet pipe eaten by a mouse/rat.. there may be some odour that attracts them. Cracked pipes are common.

Hope that helps some....

There are gas tank rebuilding/coating places where they can fix your tank and attach new connections to it.Check out that option if you are having trouble finding a better tank?
