Capless fuel tank problem.

I have just returned from a road trip to Atlantic Canada in my 2014 GC. When I stopped to fill up at the pumps yesterday the metal trap door didn't close over the filler tube to the gas tank. I am unable to pull it closed manually with my finger. Obviously I will be taking the vehicle back to the dealer and I hope this small problem can be repaired without replacing a fuel tank.

Has anyone else ever heard of such a problem and if so, was it repaired?

Re: Capless fuel tank problem.

Apparently that part just unscrews with relative ease.

See a thread about it here - Capless fuel filler and dust

Re: Capless fuel tank problem.

Thanks guys, I tried unscrewing it, but no go. I am going to take it to the dealer and hope that this is covered by warranty. I am a bit worried that they might say the damage is my fault by somehow pushing the pump nozzle in wrong. Oh yea, this happened at a Petro-Canada pump in Woodstock, NB so maybe I can blame it on Atlantic Canada.

I think you need to be more specific It's a New Brunswick problem.

Re: Capless fuel tank problem.

Hahahaha, I was staying in Petit-Cap, NB which is close to Moncton. Actually the capless system was causing me problems ever since I picked up the vehicle last month. It was hard to put a gas nozzle in and I had to ram it a few times. Only in NB did it finally jam open. As a final note, I called my service advisor at Orleans Dodge Chrysler Jeep for a repair appointment and he knew exactly what I was talking about when I started to describe the issue making me believe that this is not an isolated occurrence. Tomorrow I will find out how good my warranty is.

Re: Capless fuel tank problem.

I had to replace mine.. it doesnt "unscrew" but it does twist-lock.. grab it and twist to the left (takes a bit the first time you unlock it). Less than a quarter turn and it will then come out..

Super easy, stop in to the dealer, pop it out and show them (there is a part # on it) - have them order it. Then when its in, you can just have them put it in without needing a full appointment (the service writer guy can do it right there!)

takes 2 seconds

Re: Capless fuel tank problem.

Your wrist must be stronger than mine. The vehicle is already in for service so I hope it is out soon. I have put 8000 km on it since delivery on July 3rd so I am having an oil change done at the same time.

Re: Capless fuel tank problem.

Agreed, it is a useless feature adopted first by Ford.
