I own a 1996 Chrysler Sebring JXI convertible. I’ve had the car for 4yrs, a gift from my father after college. The car has been great, but its starting to show its age. My fuel gage does not work and every time I put gas I go through an elaborate process to fill up. The issue lies in that my gas is rejected and the backwash is spilled. I have to stop every 3to4 seconds and let the pressure vent so I don’t get any backwash from the pump. I use to be able to force the fuel pump tight to the gas and fill up with a couple of stops
I’ve researched and found several explanation of the issue.
1.) something to do with the fuel vent hose
2.) Per a mechanic, a valve spring wore out in the hose to the fuel tank.
3.) Maybe the fuel pump needs replacement.
All three sound expensive and before I decided to pull down the tank any suggestions? If this can be a cheap fix I’d consider passing this car to my sisters.
