Q: Keep getting error message "Check Fuel Fill Inlet". I Googled it, many people have that problem, noone has permanent solution.

asked by on

Can the cap-less fuel fill inlet be affixed with a cap? Is there a way to seal the inlet? Would it cause a problem if I could affix an airtight seal of the inlet? I am looking for a permanent fix/solution for this problem.

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is an ongoing problem and Ford has procedures to follow when refueling. If the leak continues then replace the filler neck with a new design filler neck with a better seal.
