Fuel Tank Won't Take Fuel

Box 2003 S. Fuel tank won't fill. Read other posts. New gas cap, changed pressure relief valve on filler neck. There is a 'click' with the top flap pushed in. E6 fuze ok. Checked and replaced. With tube from relief valve to carbon canister disattached the tank fills. Reattach it and won't fill again. Took canister out and looked ok. Not falling apart, no pieces floating around. Took to dealer and they poked around and didn't find anything but did say he wired up the wires that are mentioned in TSB #13 and he said it filled up. I tried it four times at different locations and times and failed every time. Tried to find the tank relief valve but couldn't find it. It is sometimes hesitating, like a miss, but usually runs fine. Any comments? Thank you in advance. jp

Hello and welcome to the forum! Take a look at the link below (it's also applicable to your model), did you check the fuel line vent valve?

I've changed the vent valve and still won't fill. It will fill when the tube from the valve to the carbon canister is disconnected. I'm looking for the tank vent relief valve some where in the system. There is a part but no picture available. The parts drawings are so poor that it is hard to track down where things go. I"m still trying to figure out what the magnetic Reed valve is for that is beneath the relief valve on the filler tube. Still not working. It is starting to run with an occasional hesitation like a miss. No warnings on the on board computer. Thanks for any info. jp

Driving today the car started running rough, hesitating during acceleration, and even died at a red light once. Afraid to drive it to the dealer now. Maybe will have it towed. Is this an indication of the carbon canister going bad?
