    Just bought a 2003 First Gen Access Cab. Fortunately ... no real problems to deal with except problem pumping gas ... where the pump shuts off unless gas is being put in at a glacially slow rate. I'm somewhat familiar with problem solving this issue ... but I was hoping some first gen owners could point me to the most likely cause and where to start my efforts. Thanks in advance.

    A clogged charcoal canister is the first thing that comes to mind.

    I was told if you replace the filler neck to a modern style, it will not click off prematurely. I just insert; lock the lever; and hold the handle up a little for a better angle. I fuel up that way with high speed pumps and no probs. The safety shut off functions properly when I do it.

    If you don’t want to hold the pump at all this is not your solution. Good Luck
