    Exact same problem on my 2000 Accent. Searching so far I've seen a lot of similar cases. Possibly caused by a burst or blocked Charcoal canister. Now I just have to find where that is located.

    I can only fill the tank at the slowest possible speed without the nozzle shutting off.

    I found this on the internet. I'm going to try it this weekend. Good luck. This is so frustating at the pump.

    If there's nothing obstructing the flow of fuel into the tank, then there's a restriction that's not allowing the vapors to leave the system. Here are the possibilities:

    1. Sticking fuel tank vent valve
    2. Restricted evaporative hoses
    3. Fuel in canister or canister otherwise restricted (you can cross this off since you've already replaced the canister)
    4. Canister close valve stuck closed
    5. Canister filter obstructed

    Your best bet is to probably start at the end of the list and work toward the beginning in your checking. The tank vent valves are on the top of the fuel tank, so you'd need to remove the fuel tank to check them.

    I have the same problem with my 2003 Sonata with only 36,000 miles on it and I took it to a mechanic and it has been there 5 times trying to fix this problem. They replaced 3 parts and i still don't know if it will work. Also cost me $600.00 to fix.

    This is a strange system, tank wise. There is a TSB (Technical service Bulliten) that states fuel venture problems. Unfortunately, most people start at the canister or the hose routing when the problem is in the tank. I can't answer for sure with out seeing a car, but lift up the back seat, on a 4 door. Remove the plate in the middle and you will see the fuel pump, filter, ect. When you turn the car off does the tank make a popping sound? This is realising pressure from the tank, indicating a venting problem. The canister purge is on the back side of the intake and the canister is behind the left rear tire. The vent line runs close to the ground, so make sure it isn't dented going to the tank. Make sure the vent valve is operating correctly. Normally one of these is the problem.

Check the vent valve behind the intake. Also check for damage to the vent line from the tank to the filler neck. Also there is a TSB on the tanks venture system which causes all kinds of vent problems, clogged canisters, ect

When putting gas in my 2004 Kia amanit the fuel nozzle kicks off. How do I locate and fix the problem

HI Bridgette,

Due to the different shapes of fuel tank filler necks in cars & trucks, it may be necessary to vary one or more things to allow fuel to flow uninterrupted until the tank is really full.

The main problem can come from the new "vapor recovery" gasoline pumps. These pumps and hoses actually recover gasoline fumes from your tank as the liquid gasoline displaces the air / fumes in the tank is it is being filled. If gasoline flow is started at full blast, it can splash back slightly, causing liquid to be pulled back by the pump - so it shuts off. So, start with a slow rate of filling and gradually increase flow rate to maximum over 5 to 10 seconds. If it still shuts off, try some of the suggestions below.

First, don't fill at maximum flow rate from the pump - that is, don't set the nozzle for wide open. Select one of the other "latches" on the handle instead of the fastest flow and let the tank fill entirely at this rate.

Second, you should experiment a bit with the length of nozzle that you push into the tank's filler neck. If you push it in too far or too little, the pump nozzle can do what you're describing.

Third, try twisting the nozzle slightly so that it doesn't hang straight downward - a little to the left or right may provide a solution.

Lastly, try a different gas station. Their pumps may not be so picky with your tank's filler neck.

Good luck!

2003 hyuandi accent - i have trouble putting gas in the gas tank . It will only put in a little at a time as the gas pump will continue to shut off.

hi from uk make sure you push pump nozzle fully in tank filler as there is a flap just below filler that has to be opened fully to allow fuel to flow unrestricted ?? also considering age of vehicle ? check under the wheel arch along side of fuel filler pipe you will see a hose attached alongside ? make sure this is not kinked or blocked up at its lower end this hose is the ventilation for fuel tank ie as you put fuel into tank you also displace air from tank there for if air vent is blocked ? fuel will be restricted fro flowing hence pump shuts off ? the pipe vent is subjected to dirt from roadway and rain spray due to its location and usually blockage is with hardened mud over time ? hope this helps ? best wishes from n/west uk

When fueling my 2002 Corolla I find that the pump shuts off after 2-3 seconds. It is alomost as if the tank is full and forcing the auto shutoff. It as taken as long as 10 minutes to fill the tank. What...

Is this happening at all gas pumps, or just a particular pump?

It could be that your fill hose may be partially blocked, your anti-siphon flap is getting stuck

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

You need to drop tanks and find out where blockage is and remove it! Temporarily, you can fill from a gas can, slowly so air can escape while filling! I'd at least look underneath and find out if the vent pipe to the fill neck is crimped anywhere.

Gas shuts off every few seconds when filling gas tank

there is a vent tube that runs along side the fuel tank fill pipe, this tube allows air to went out as fuel is put in,if it kinks (it is very soft thin plastic tube) then u end up with your problem, replace the vent tube, the fill pipe and vent tube come as one part.

Filling gas tank

are you putting the delivery pump nozzle into tank filler far enough so it ppushes open the restrictor flap inside fill neck ? if so then check under n/s/rear wheel arch and where the filler pipe is you will see a smaller bore pipe clipped along side this is the fuel tank ventilation pipe that as you fill tank it will vent theair from tank as displacement occures ensure this pipe is clear ?
