Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Fill up with gas

When I fill up with gas, my elantra will not start. I don't over fill it. When the pump clicks I stop pumping. I have replace the gas cap with a new Hyundai gas cap. Everytime I go to fill up, my car start but it doesn't stay idle. I have to put my car in neutral then put it in drive quickly before the car cutts off. But once I get started I don't have any problem until I fill up again.

I had the same problem, you have to change the perge control valve, its on the back of the engine below where the plastic intake pipe meets the metal intake manifold on the back side of the engine between the engine block and the firewall, on the underside of your car hood you will see a vacume system diagram, it will illistrate where the valve is, it should cost about 30 bucks or so at a hyundai dealership

My 1998 Hyundai Elantra will not start after running out of gas.When I put gas in it ,it would crank but it took a long time to start. I drove it 3 miles and it shut off. I cranked it and cranked it,but it...


Don't let the car run out of gas. Fill the tank and run until the tank is half empty. Again fill the tank.
By driving until you run out of gas, you are letting sediments/dirt collected in the bottom of the tank to enter the engine. Rather they will block the fuel filter. Then gas will not reach the engine.
Clean the gas filter and your car will run fine.
The same advice again. Don't drive until the tank becomes empty.

Replace power steering pump


The procedure is as follows:--- 1) Locate the power steering pump on the driver's side of the motor, which is mounted in front of the engine, near the top.2) You will see a fill spout coming out of the pump with a cap on it that says "power steering fluid."
3) Remove the negative battery cable from the battery
4) Remove the cap from the power steering pump,allow the fluid to drain into the pan.
5) Loosen the bolts that hold the power steering pump to the engine block with a socket wrench. Once the pump is loose, remove the belt from the pulley on the power steering pump. Remove the pump from the engine compartment.
6) Insert new power steering pump in reverse.
7) Reattach the power steering hoses and verify they are secure. Fill the new power steering pump with fluid to the full line shown on the dipstick on the back of the cap for your power steering pump. Place the cap back on the power steering pump.

Every time I fill up my 2001 Hyundai Elantra at every station I've been to the pump will constantly cut off during fill-up. I've tried pulling the nozzle further out of the gas tank and pushed it in as far...


When a gas pump does this it is because there is alot of pressure in the gas tank. This is a good thing for you because it means all your seals in the fule system are working good.Next time you fill up open you fule cap and let the car vent for a little bit then try to fill.

Stop and talk to a dealer to see if they have a TSB on this problem,
Dodge had this problem and they corrected it by installing new tanks.

Can't fill the tank


There is a breather tube fitted to the tank which allows air to escape when you fill it with fuel.

That is either blocked or compressed.

When you take the filler cap off is there a gust of air in or out of the tank

2001 hyundai santa fe hard to start engine after filling gas tank


Hello, This is not an uncommon problem and I hope I explain ok. Your fuel pump is located in the gas tank. A pump runs very hot when operating. The fuel in the tank actually helps keep it cool. If you have a weak pump, it is not uncommon for it to fail at the gas pump when refullling. We have towed most fuel pump failures from the gas pumps. This is because the fuel that is in underground storage tanks is very cold. After you shut off vehicle. the temp of the pump climbs a little. When you go to put in new fuel, you are shocking the pump and it quits till it is happy enough to start working again. Again, you are not alone. This is common. Unfortunately, not a " in the driveway job" You need to tell you tech my response and get a quote for new pump. The only other thing that could be happening is " fuel lock" . Next time it happens., leave the cap off and see if it starts ok then. If so, you may have cap or vent problem. I am still leaning towrds the pump. BTW. If I am correct it will get worse not better. At one point it will fail entirely. Be ready for this. Good Luck and Thanks

Having trouble pumping gas into 2005 hyundai elantra


You have a blocked or restricted evaporative cannister or vent valve or both. When you fill the tank with gas, the air is expelled through a line attatched to the emissions cannister and then through another line to the vent valve. If these are restricted or damaged, this could cause your symptoms. Usually you can still fill the tank very slowly though. Usually, the canister ges saturated from gas from overfilling (topping off).
The fix is to replace the EVAP canister.
