Gas can be empty and when you attempt to fill up tank it shuts off as if tank is full. Spent $400.15 on 10/25/13 for fuel vapor control valve yonder dealer thought this might be causing it. This worked for few weeks then it began again but seemed to let us fill it up if we drove for a few miles before attempting to fill up the gas tank. Now it doesn't matter how far we drive the car the gas will not pump into the tank it can take us up to 30 minutes to pump a few gallons of gas. The Honda dealer is as much of a loss as to what is causing this to take place. The car has not been involved in any accidents and is causing extreme stress as to how and what it will take to get the gas to pump correctly.

The contact owns a 2004 Honda Pilot. The contact stated while adding gasoline to the fuel tank it would spill out preventing the contact from adding fuel to its capacity. While inside the vehicle the contact also smelled a strong odor of gasoline. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing where they stated that the gasoline valve caused the failure and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred immediately. The manufacturer was later contacted and advised the contact to have the dealership diagnose the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 105,000. The current mileage was approximately 120,000. Updated 2/25/13 the rv valve was replaced. However, the problem continued. The consumer stated the problem had been going on for over a year. Honda could not give her a definitive answer as tow hat the problem was. The consumer was unable to completely fill the gas tank.

Vtm-4 light and check engine light illuminating. Was told that gas cap being loose may cause this to happen but I have been ensuring that it is properly seated every time I refil the vehicle.
