1997 - 2004 Corvette: Service Bulletin: Vehicle is Difficult to Fuel or Filling Station Pump Shuts Off Before Tank is Full
Service Bulletin #: 04-06-04-031 - Issued: 4/22/04
Vehicle is difficult to fuel or filling station pump shuts off before tank is full
1997 - 2004Chevrolet Corvette
Condition: You may find that when attempting to fill your fuel tank with gas, the pump will shut down before the tank is actually full.
Cause: The condition may be caused by back pressure within the fuel filler hose. This back pressure trips the fuel nozzle prior to filling the tank, or results in a hard to fill condition.
Correction: Replace the fuel tank filler hose with P/N 10353139. This new hose has been redesigned to provide smoother flow conditions within the section.
General Motors bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, not a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform those technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, do not assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See a General Motors dealer servicing your brand of General Motors vehicle for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
