SOURCE: 2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank

The fill tube for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

SOURCE: removal of disk brake

Post is a month old but maybe someone else will read it and get the information. This is actually very easy. Make sure the parking brake is set and remove the wheel of whichever side you are working on. The calipers on this have one bolt on the top that needs to be loosened. Once the top bolt is loosened you will need to pull up on both sides of the caliper to disengage it from the brake pads/rotor. Once it is disengaged it is best if you have something available to tie it off for the moment so it does not just hang as that can damage the brake line. Once you have the caliper pulled out of the way-if you are new to brake jobs familiarize yourself with the alignment of the brake pads. Each side is going to have an inner and outer pad. The pad that goes on the inside is the one that has the sensor, it is a metal clip attached to the bottom of the brake pad. Before you take the old pads out compare their position with your new pads. Using a screwdriver as carefully as possible pop out the old "outer" brake pad and put the new one back in its place. Doing only inner and outer one at a time will help with your brake hardware brackets at the top and bottom of the pads not falling/coming out of place. Then replace the inner brake pad. Once that is done what you are going to need to do is to push the caliper back in. This is done with what is called a C-clamp-medium or large size-available at most parts places. They will know what you are talking about. When you are looking at the caliper what you will notice is that in the middle it is protruding out. You need to push it back into the caliper so that it will fit the new brake pads. Put one end of the C-clamp on the edge of this protrusion and put the other end of the C-clamp on the back of the caliper. Turn the handle until it is taut and at that point it will be harder to turn but as you turn the C-clamp handle the caliper will begin receding until it is flush at which point you are ready to put the caliper back on. Put the caliper over the new pads and where you took the bolt out-you may have to push the caliper guide pin out slightly to put the bolt back in but it should be no real problem. Once you have tightened the top caliper bolt back up, put the wheel back on and do the other side. Once both sides are done before you drive the car you will need to make sure and start the car, and pump the brakes a few times so that the caliper can make firm contact with the new brake pads. After that you should be good to go

SOURCE: 2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank

I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: how do you remove radio from hyundai accent 1998

You have to take out the ash tray, and remove those two screws, then pop out the center dash trim. Careful, though, you have to take out a lot of the wiring inside of your center dash trim in order to pull it out for enough room to move the radio in and out. I'm doing this right now, actually..

I have a code of PO456 Hyundai 2007 Accent

This tends to be a Fuel cap seal, when getting fuel be sure to tighten the gas cap at least three clicks. Any parts store should be able to reset the service engine light, if the light persists, remove your negative battery cable for 30 seconds with the ignition turned to the run position. replace negative battery cable and and the code should be gone. This resets your cars computer. Be aware that this also rests the Drive Learn program, and the car will take 10-15 miles to reset this, it may run a bit rough during those 10-15 miles but should clear up afterwards.
