capless filler cap

I'm new to the forum and have a question/problem. The tip of the capless filler cap on my new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited broke off. I didn't notice it until I went to fill up on a long trip from Boston to Atlanta. The last time I filled up an attendant did it for us. I was able to place the tip and hold it on to the neck while I inserted the gas nozzle and fill the tank that way. Has this happened to anyone else? and how large a fix is this? do they have to drop the tank? will it take forever and will the dealer need to order the part?

Re: capless filler cap

First off, welcome to the site and secondly, that sucks! They should not have to drop the tank but will probably need to replace the whole fuel filler assembly.

I checked wk2jeeps.com (a sister site to this forum) and did not see an isometric for that assembly. maybe if Milous picks up this thread, he might have one.

Wonder what the guy did, wrench on it till it broke and then just quietly slink away. Too bad you cant prove they broke it, it's probably going to be pricey to R&R.

Good luck.

Re: capless filler cap

Thanks for your reply. I'm assuming this will be under warranty, but I don't think he may have done that. The temperature had been about 10 degrees for a few days, my guess is that it just broke off trying to get the nozzle out. I think it was just too cold out there and its just plastic.

Re: capless filler cap

You are a good person. I'm thinking that 10 degrees shouldn't matter and that if you did it, you would have noticed.

That being said, good luck, and maybe Jeep will do you a solid and consider it "research".

Re: capless filler cap

I've heard of this happening at some gas pumps and not others. Could have something to do with the pump. Try another station, or pull the nozzle back a couple of inches. The vapor is what I think is shutting off the pump. If it happens everywhere you might want to see your dealer.

Re: capless filler cap

What I've learned with this capless filler is that you have to be careful of the spiral wrap around the nozzle itself and it's relationship inside the filler neck. Most of the time it will hang up on the rim of the filler neck when you're trying to remove the nozzle. Reefin' on it in an attempt to remove the nozzle leads to damage.

When removing the nozzle you need to first lift upwards on the nozzle so that spiral wrap doesn't hang up in the filler neck. It then comes out smoothly.

Re: capless filler cap

As to the auto cut-off. My wife drives a Prius and it's infamous for causing this same behavior in SOME pumps, and it is pump specific. Some do it, some don't. Usually the fault is with the pump, it's simply set to be too sensitive. However some cars (the Prius and I've heard this from other JGC owners too now) are more likely to have it happen.

The solution I've found is to (do not laugh, it genuinely works, I've done it MANY times in the Prius) turn the nozzle upside down while filling. For some reason it makes the auto shut-off less sensitive. It still works, still shuts off when it should, but allows me to fill the tank without swearing and scaring away small children. Looks a little goofy, but I don't care, it works and it's better than shutting down the pump and trying another one 'til you get one that's less sensitive.

Having said that, if ALL pumps are misbehaving, and the upside down method doesn't work, then there may be something going on with your Jeep.

What I wanna know is...who was the first to figure out the upside down thing? It's certainly not the first thing I thought of when experiencing this problem!!

Re: capless filler cap

Ya just pull the nozzle back a little bit and that should cure your problem. I had to get use to where it worked best when I got my now GC. It's kinda counter intuitive to what you think. If that doesn't work you may have a warrantee issue.

Maybe on the Jeep (I've never had it happen, only filled up once so far!) but that method (pulling the nozzle back) absolutely does not work on the Prius.
