Often the cause wasn’t a loose gas cap, but a loose gas cap had been a cause and my friend re-tightened the gas cap and kept driving. It was to comply with new CARB regulations passed a few years ago. I’ve read the article and the comments. Since I received horrible service from Conroe, TX I was not going to return to them. Getting used to the check engine light going out a couple days after re-tightening the fuel cap precipitated an 80,000 mile engine replacement in a friend’s Mazda3. I have been smelling gas like crazy especially on hot days. The key wouldn’t even go into the locking gas cap and I’m standing at 8 PM (in winter) with a car with little gas. Moderator – leave this up, it is a dangerous situation. Any car with the easy fill system comes with a funnel so you can pour gas out of a gas can or add fuel additive. If you can’t remember something like that, what else are you capable of forgetting while driving? Here’s a real problem to solve: Cardboard flaps on cereal boxes that rip on opening and prevent the little flap thingie from working properly afterwards. They stripped and repainted the entire hood. An epic over reach when comes to redesigning a component to be more complex when the original design wasn’t broken in the first place. Anyone with anything glowing, or open flame around this unit will go up when it gets hot out and the tank “outgasses”. I want a seamless smooth look and that little nub looks dated.

So I looked for it on my engine. "CarComplaints.com" ®, "Autobeef", "What's Wrong With YOUR Car?" Click here for more information. Went to the dealer, and they looked at it and told me it was MY PROBLEM in how I fueled the thing. Because the problem is two fold. I've got a 2011 Ford Edge. They will push this off on you, and you can pay the dealer every time the light goes on – or – you can get a Actron tool, clear the code, turn off the mil light and move on — IN Addition. Judging by the rush from all other manufacturers to copy the Ford capless fuel filler system, I think it fair to say that Ford has attempted to solve a problem that does not exist. Bump the Fiesta problem graphs up another notch. We must be approaching the point where we’ll “jump the shark” soon if the only automotive improvement left is to make gas caps unnecessarily complex. The DEVIL. If the driver’s door was unlocked, it would pop open, otherwise not. Guess who takes the perception hit? Went from VW (or as I liked to call it the CEL Special) to Ford a month or so back. I have tried every conceivable nozzle position..they all act the same. Sitting right on top with a couple of clamps. Replaced it in 5 minutes. Between this, SYNC, Focus wheel bearing and DCT issues, Fusion build quality issues, and Ford 6F35 transmission woes, I was scared off properly. NO! Especially if dropping the fuel tank is required for replacement.

I purchased a new 1977 Sunbird and arranged for delivery on a Friday evening. Was that Ford? Won’t someone think of the children?

I have purchased gas for 38 years and never seen anything like this. VW. Oh, guess what? “I must be getting old, as I see any new technology that comes out as somebody reinventing the wheel into a square.”. If it’s not the reason that the failure mode prevents refueling, then heads should roll.

Millions of people face this problem EVERY single day. Typical Ford. Although some of the issues are due to sheer stupidity, it would appear that sticking Easy-Fills aren’t that uncommon, with the cure usually being a vigorous hammering at the dealership. It was going to be $700+ for a new one.

Similar idea with the trunk button — if the passenger door was unlocked, it would open the trunk, otherwise not. EDIT… Meant to post under DUBBEDs post. Last week it set the MIL for the evap problem.

No wait, that’s America with “If I did it…”. Ford, “Quality is Job 1”? Also seems strange to have no fuel door security these days. One is Ford, the other is Microsoft. That’s right. This requires nothing more than a little additional programming for the OBD and dash display that are already there. Trust me it will, it has set off my gas detector already, just testing it with tools here at the shop. We have it on a two-year lease which is almost up, so we aren’t going to worry about it too much, but I’d think twice about buying a Ford with the feature unless I knew a good solid way to get the thing open in a pinch. But even a blind squirrel gets the nut every now and then (Windows 7). I’ve had my Focus since November 2011, currently with 43,000 Miles and have yet to have an issue with the easy fill unless a friend goes to use my car and gets confused. How much time and money is it going to cost to fix ‘Easy Fill’ when they start leaking vapors? I remember that it looked like a head gasket at first but there was additional damage revealed when they got the head off. Assume cost savings to drop that and have a simple spring loaded fuel door. I drove home, parked the car and didn’t go anywhere all weekend. No no, that would be too easy. Adding technology to something and making it from carbon fiber doesn’t necessarily improve everything ever made. Needing to re-tighten the gas cap once every couple years is an awfully broad definition of broken, even if it does confuse stupid women. I thought, the price quoted must be all labor. This process is automatic. It’s also certainly reduced the number of women drivers who leave the gas station with their fuel caps dangling or missing entirely.

Hmmm…Ford knows about the problem, tries to rip off customers and then sell them the solution for their design mistakes? the sync system has been bulletproof and the only system I’ve used capable of using my 32 gb flash drive. Works exactly as advertised. What I don’t like is the fuel door with the finger pull bumpout. I’m interested in hearing the details of that story, CJ. Here is my experience – we have a 2014 Transit Connect. I think once, SYNC dropped by Bluetooth connection in the middle of a call, but I’ve never had a serious issue with the system.

I see those failing in time.

I put this up there with rain sensing wipers — I think I can handle it. Now, the gas pump shuts of after only pumping a gallon or so of gas - takes forever to put in 10 gallons. Horrible cereal bags, inside the terrible cardboard box, that never open cleanly and get cereal everywhere, are also an epidemic.

With this you can’t just check the cap. When my 06 Miata surprisingly failed emissions, it was a simple fix..replace fuel cap.

It locks the filler door in place unless the power door locks are released.

I have never had a light come on for fuel cap. We don't sell/share your email. She was convinced that her car would be ruined if she drove around with the “Check Engine” light on for days at a time. The cap was on, but apparently not tight enough — and I drove around for about a week without it going off. It’s also certainly reduced the number of women drivers who leave the gas station with their fuel caps dangling or missing entirely. The worst complaints are transmission, engine, and accessories - interior problems. Not necessarily a Honda’s worth of caution; who wants five-speed automatic transmissions and Eighties-era in-dash displays? They replaced the fuel filler neck free of charge and provided me with excellent customer service. Now, I’m going to buy an ODBII to reset my CEL and also buy a “plug” that should fix the poorly designed Easy Fill. This.

This is another reason why a Ford vehicle of this era or after will not even be on my shopping list. engine is still as responsive as the day I bought it but that might be because at least twice a week I go WOT on the highway. Now, let’s say you DO actually check the gas cap; give it a few turns, make sure it clicks. On Saturday, however, the 2012 Edge […]

It has been on the property for about three weeks. Part of being a good motorist is sweating the details and developing good habits, like adjusting mirrors, checking blind spots with your eyes, using your signals, and turning your headlights on when its dark. Neither company knows what they are doing when it comes to designing things that work.

Ford should do a recall on this part. I was talking some people I know that needed to replace the gas cap on a Piper Saratoga, which is a relatively common and not especially fancy airplane.

When the Check Engine and Fuel Filler Error lights on my 2012 Mustang came on, I was concerned. Accepting that as broken for the sake of discussion, a powered gas cap that will expensively break in the future and can’t be jerry canned even while it still works is a pretty terrible solution. I drove home, searched for the official Ford valve and found it at a local parts store for $17. are trademarks of Autobeef LLC, All rights reserved. Are they also willing to cover any damage if it turns out not to be a gas cap? For more information on how we collect and use this information, please review our Privacy Policy. I’ll see my friend tomorrow and ask her what caused the engine replacement. This is the big issue I have with Easy Fill as well. And on further examination, it turns out that this malfunction isn’t as unusual as I’d thought. Naturally, this happened to the Edge in question when there was about two gallons of fuel left in the tank. She called me when it stranded her and told me the CEL had been on before it started running rough and then died. Those are two Things That Can Go Wrong, of course. A “regular” twist off gas cap costs less than $10 to replace at Wal- mart or Autozone if you happen to lose it.

Is the gas cap part of the engine?

I do notice that the focus does not like 2ND tier gas, I usually stick to shell or mobile but whenvermy father borrows it he uses hess or stop and shop and there seems to be a slower response time and lag aaccompanied of course this could be my imagination….my dealer has been amazing so honestly that alone would keeo me coming back.
