Gas nozzle shuts off before tank is full — Equinox, Saturn

Gas nozzle shuts off before tank is full — Equinox, Saturn

GM reports a problem in some 2005 Equinox and 2002-05 Saturn Vue vehicles where the gas nozzle shuts off before tank is full. The issue might also be accompanied by a trouble code P0446, relating to a vent system performance. The problem has been traced to a partially restricted EVAP canister hose. The restriction appears like a ball of cotton and is actually a spider’s nest. GM has issued a new design hose for these applications. The new hose contains a screen to keep spiders out of the vent hose. The new part number is #15252781. For additional details, refer to TSB #05-06-04-059.
