    Spider in the gas pipe!

    Hey all,
    So I had an issue where my check engine and SRS light(not sure if I'm saying correctly but it's the one with the car zigzagging) went on, and cruise control blinking. A fellow from this board suggested that my gas cap wasn't screwed all well. I tighten it, went away.
    Happened again, this time, when I tried to put gas into the car, gas didn't want to go down, just kept spilling out. Also it looked like it was leaking below the car. I decieded to use roadside assiatnce and tow it to the dealer. The guy calls me, said there was a spider in the pipe, he got through the air whole where the gas goes. The spider wove a web which was blocking the gas of entering the gas tank! WTF!
    *side note, I think I killed his brother the night before as he was hanging out above my outside entrance door and the thing was huge. Go figure...

    Only way to permanently solve this problem is to light the entire car on fire.
