Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Putting Gas in my Car has become a drag

Every time I put gas in my tank, the car fails to start on that first initial start. I have to wait maybe 10-15 mins before it'll try to start. I've gotten tune-ups, oil changes, and filter changes. What causing this and how much will it cost to fix?

Sounds like a fuel pump problem, when it won't start check the fuel pressure at the fuel injection fuel supply rail on the engine, there is a valve there to access the system pressure, it looks like a metal tire valve.

Why do i have to rev. my engine to start my kia rio everytime after i put gas in the car


I had the same problem with mine about two years ago. The problem drove me nuts for six months. The solution was replacing the purge valve on the intake of the engine. With the purge Valve hung open when refueling raw gas vaper is washed into the engine causing the engine to become flooded after fueling. Hope this helps and good luck.

Ust got a new car 2007 hyundai accent manual when ever i put gas in it it wont start normal have to rev it a little. looks like it may be missing a gas flap?


check the fuel pump pressure after putting the petrol in and then it will not start as the pump could have a low pressure ,as the car runs the EVAP system is pressurising the tank making up for the shortfall in the pump pressure

I ran my car out of gas and put gas in it now it wont start


How much gas did you put in it? It is very possible that when you ran it out, that your fuel filter became clogged with the sediment from the bottom of the tank. Make sure there is atleast 5gal. of fuel in the tank. Turn the the ignition all the way forward and wait 3 seconds, but dont turn the engine over. Do this 5 or 6 times to get the fuel pump priming. Then try starting the car without pumping the gas pedal. If the car still wont start, check that the fuel system has pressure. Maybe something failed in the fuel pump when it went dry. You can have someone listen near or at the fuel tank to see if they can hear the fuel pump kicking on and off while someone turns the key on and off. Hope this helps.

Every time I put gas in my car it takes approx. ten minutes before it will start up. I let my car run while putting gas in it and my car stopped running. But I was able to start it back up 10 minutes later


keeping the vehicle running during a fill up is a definite NO NO! there is the increased risk of a fire(very bad) the possibikity of someone stealing your car(bad) and the increase for the problem you are experianceing( not so bad, fixable and preventable). the reason youre having the trouble is youre essentially flooding the engine with raw gas. while the engine is running it creates vaccuum in the evaporative emission system. in a nutshell, its constantly sucking the fumes out of the gas tank and burning them by running it thru the engine, there is a small valve in the tank thats supposed to be exposed to air in the tank, when you fill the tank with the engine running you are drawing this air out while the fuel is being added and you are more than likely sucking the raw fuel into the charcoal canister and its becoming flooded with fuel instead of vapor. after you wait about 10 min this exess fuel has evaporated enough that just the vapor is being drawn into the engine again and allowing it to start. in short dont keep the car running while filling, dont fill past where the hose shuts off the first time, trying to cram an extra half gallon into the tank, and this should no longer be an issue.

Every time i am putting gas in my car it would shut off or kick back gas. I have tried different pumps even try puttin gth egas in slow or not putting the nozzle in all the way and nothing helps


Sounds like you have something stuck in your gas tank maybe someone put something in your gas tank perhaps you might consider a good flash light and a pen open the cap insert the pen hold tight and put flash light in filler neck flap hole to see what kind of obstacle you have stuck in your filler nozzle neck if your unable to see anything you might consider taking the car to certified technician for service to you clogged gas filler neck.

Why getting excess air in gas tank? when opening gas cap expulsion of air realeases every time. After about ten miles the car begins to hesitate as if you were putting your foot on and off the gas. It runs...


Youg tank shouldn't build up air.It has a vent or vent hose by the filler sout which maybe pluged or abstructed in some way.......Hope this helps.

The car started good and then stalled about a mile down the road. we thought it ran out of gas, after putting gas in, the car still wont start.


make sure it not time to replace the fuel filter you can do this put in some STP gas treatment if the car runs better replace the fuel filter and the sparkplugs also give these websites atry www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car make sure you have a half of tank of gas and add a little more when you put the gas treatment in and drive on a back roard where you can drive around 55-mph wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

My car doesn't start after putting gas in it


hmmm, is it a diesel or gas powered VW?

if gas, did you use E85 fuel? this will make it very difficult to start and run very poorly once runing. I would suggest a fuel sample be drawn. but first, call the suplying fuel station and ask them if any issues with their fuel. It is becoming more of a trend that teh 10% ethanol is "dropping out" of the fuel. this process is called "phase seperation". phase seperation occurs when water becomes mixed with gasoline that is mixed with ethanol. the enthanol is loosely bonded to the fuel itself, but is much more deireablke to mix with water than gas. so when your service statiojn refills their underground tanks, and the water content in bottom of tank is high, the water mizes with the fuel and pulls the ethanol out of it. the ethanol sits on bottom of storage tank, waiting to be pumped into your car by the submersed pumps in the bottom of tanks....so now that chemistry class is over..call your gas station, ask them if issues with fuel, if co..great! they will tell you what to do next..if not, draw a fuel sample and if it looks like ditch water with water down looking maple syrup like goo in it..that is phase seperation @ its finest.

hope this helps you

your 4 thumbs up is appreciated

98 buick car runs great untill i put gas


Sounds like water in fuel tank. Try putting some gasline antifreeze in, (maybe a couple of bottles) will clear up water and problem if that's it.
