Question about 2002 Kia Optima
No matter how slowly I pump the gas, the pump switches off as if the tank is full. I've had my valves cleaned out, and it works for one fill-up then back to the same problems.

Here's a tip...it might help.Get on the bottomside of your vehicle and see if the return hose(smaller one) i kinked by any means.If it is...that's your problem.If not then more than likely you have an evap systems blockage.I hope I could help..

Two things come to mind. You broke the pressure seal to the fuel system when you took off the gas cap. The fresh gas rushing in disturbs any dirt or debris on the bottom of the tank.
Next time you use the car when you arrive at our destination, simulate what you do when you fuel up. This will mimic everythig except the new fuel rushing in. If it is still hard to start you know it's something to do with the evaporative fuel system. If not, you need the fuel tank inspected .

have someone check the vent valve and hose, a common problem is spiders go inside the vent hose and make a web nest, this blocks the system. so when filling the tank the air in the tank cant be release and so pump shut off and fuel sparys out, take a look , bet youll find a spiders nest.

I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!
