RE: fuel door won't close
LOL....figured it out! Thought I'd update in case anyone was interested.....
Nothing out of place afterall with the black rubber thingy that "houses" where the lock spike comes out of. The "hook" (latch) on the door itself was the culprit. When I pulled out the fuel nozzle, it must've bent the piece. The reason we didn't suspect it is that, 1) it's a "perfect" little curve; 2) it's the right size that it would fit inside the black rubber thingy (should it be able to close into it); 3) We just couldn't imagine getting a nice curve on it without noticing it happening, etc. Anyway, after figuring that HAD to be it (we didn't have another car to look at to make sure), we carefully bent it straight, and viola--it works. Feel so stupid, yet glad it was simple....and fixed.
Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read (and try to help).
