Somehow the Stopping of the Fuel Pump Stopped

So I posted earlier that whenever I pumped fuel into my car, it would cut the pump off or gas would start spilling out of the nozzle. This happened for a few months and for some reason it stopped rejecting my fuel. I can now leave the pump in the nozzle and fill up in minutes! Before pumping 5 gallons of gas took about 20 minutes! I called a dealership to get an estimate on what it would cost to fix it, 300-500 bucks, the guy said that the vapor box or w.e was clodded. I started giving my car regular car washes at least once a week, with car washes that wash the underside of your car, and I think thats what cured it. It's been working flawlessly for a month now
