my 2004 dodge ram 1500 2x2with a hemi 5.7 will not accept fuel.As soon as i start to fill it backs up the filler and stops the pump.the only way i can fill the tank is to hold the fuel nozzel out of the hole ans slowly shoot the fuel into the filler tube.This is not only unsafe for my wife and kids but very time consuming.replaced fuel fill tube already and had breather tube blownout and scoped by a mechanic.He now tells me i need a new $500 gas tank.Is this something i can have the dealership fix for free?
