Question about 2002 Kia Sportage
Love My Kia Sportage (2002), but both my daughters and mine have started to refuse to take gas. It takes about 15 minutes to fill the tank. Is there a vent that could be plugged? gary
I just had this problem fixed at the dealer. There is a vent canister on the fuel tank that is plugged. the part needs to be replaced @$80.00 plus 1 hr labour.

You'll have to lay down to see it, but use a light if needed, and look up at hoses going from filler (where you put gas in) to tank, my guess is that one of them has a kink in it. Smaller one is vent/overflow, larger one is for fuel to tank. By the sounds of it, if this didn't occur for sometime, Kia, may have a technical service bulletin or recall on it if both are doing the same thing, so it wouldn't hurt to give their service dept a quick call in case it's a free repair.
