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: gas gauge shows empty after filling gas tank

The gauge circuit is shunted on most cars, this is wierd, but needed to stabilize the readings... Your description sounds like normal function. Drivers would complain if the qauge were to be instant, going around corners, starting, stopping, all move fuel, and the gauge would indicate this, cauing driver alarm...Been this way for ever, although yours sounds like it is on the far side of the scale...if it reads correctly after a while, you could replace everything and you would have the same performance.

Gas fill problem


the filler tube relies on an air bleed hose that runs from the top of the tank to where you place the filler nozzle. This allows air in the tank to bleed out as you are filling it. If this tube is blocked (pinched) then the air has to come out the filler tube past the nozzle and any fuel will cut the flow of at the nozzle.

The gas tank accepts only a gallon or so of gas before clicking off. It takes a very long time to fill the tank.

2004 matrix will not take gas when trying to fill the tank. It will click the pump off over and over.


try and pull the nozzel out just a little bit and if that doesn't work then i would check the vapor hose and see if it has any blockage. and if it does then change it out.

When I fill-up my ford contour the gas pump keeps clicking off. can only put in a little gas at a time


Check the vent tube which is alongside the gas fill tube. It's either kinked, bent, pinched, or some how blocked, not allowing easy flow of gas into the tank. Once the tube is open, you will not have trouble. You don't give the year, it's possible it needs to be replaced (comes as a unit with the fill tube) if rusting badly.

The engine light is on with my 2001 ford explorer sport.


this code indicates that the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR for short) is not flowing enough gas, this can be caused by a defective valve or a plugged EGR gas passage, the plugged passage in the intake is the more common problem.

Everytime i try to fill my tank at the pump it


pull the nozzel out a little and don't squeeze the handle for full force.The more you squeeze the faster gas will flow the less you squeeze the slower the flow(to much flow)

We have an "04 Suzuki Verona that does the same thing, we have found that it is not the station as much as it is the angle that the tank inlet is on. When you put the gas nozzle in, it fills with some air to replace the gas comming out of the nozzle. Unless you find a place that has a higher pressure pump, you are in a long and "Clicking Off" ownership when it time to pump gas. For the record, I have noticed that if I chose the lowest setting on the handle, the pump will ussually fill about $10 at a time. two or three of those, and its a done deal. Hope this helps you.
