It's a bad fuel sending unit - it has nothing more than coincidence in common with the timing of your emissions test. You'll have to remove the sender from the tank to replace it. Some cars require dropping the fuel tank, but others have an access port in the trunk or under the rear seat cushion. Replace the sender and you'll be back up and running correctly.

Why fuel gauge not working gas guage on 2009 santa fe stays on empty even with a full tank of gas. Guage fluctuates from empty to 3/4 full to empty to 1/3 full at any given time.

It could be the sending unit in the tank or the gauge on the dash. A mechanic would test the signal coming from the sending unit to verify.

I've only owned the vehicle for 2 days (2004 Hyundai Accent). Driving down the road the road the fuel gauge goes from full to empty...then after 30 mins back to full again. Can you help? Thanks,

Wandering fuel guages are associated with a bad fuel pump/sending unit in the tank. Probably one of the reasons it was for sale. will be about $200 for unit and $100 to change. Check your warranty for coverage.
Good luck

My check engine light has come on in a 2004 Hyundai Accent. There doesn't seem to be any problems, and the car only has 16,800 miles on it.

This is probably sensor or emissions related. You need to have the car scanned with diagnostic equipment in order to help pinpoint the cause of the problem. The vehicles computer will have retained a trouble code that can be picked up with a scanner.

Do not ignore it as this light is on for a reason. You can have a scan done at Autozone for free.

I am asking about my 2004 hyundai accent It has 63,000 miles my check light came on took it to advance auto to see what problem was air coming from gas tank replaced gas cap was good for two weeks and it...

No they just pulled a code and sold you a part. An evaporative emission system is very complicated with valves, solenoids, and lines. Any malfunctioning parts or other leaks in the system will set codes. This MUST be checked by a professional that has access to a smoke machine to look for leaks and test solenoids for proper operation. Guessing will just leave you with an empty wallet.

Replace oil pan on my Hyundai accent 2004

You can try to re torque the bolts before you drop the pan and re place the gaskit if that is where your leak is coming from. Good luck and hope you don't have to drop the oil pan.

You likely need a new fuel sending unit (it's in the trunk, and is what drives the gauge).
