Could be a blockage in the vent tube in the fill pipe, or a problem with the venting of the tank.

Can only pump fuel very slowly into my 2003 2.7 litre Kia optima. Why, and how to fix?


Check that the flap/valve that moves aside when you insert the fuel nozzle is moving fully. Also check the rubber tube on inside of the fuel filler cap to the tank is ok .. and often, there may be a thinner tube that acts as a vent... check the vent tube (if fitted).

When you fill your car with fuel the back pressure from the vehicle fuel tank causes the fuel nozzle to cut out and stop delivering. This is just a safety feature. Every fuel nozzle in the world is the same..

You don't have a big problem. Next time you refill with fuel try delivering in short 'spurts' .. pull the trigger for a few seconds and then release .. pull again ... Let the pressure in the tank drop between spurts. Don't shove the nozzle into the fuel filler and try and blast gallon after gallon into the tank.

I'm in the UK. I have a 1998 Jeep. Every time I fill it with gas it takes a while and my wife phones the police to report me missing from home... You don't have a problem. Fill it with spurts..

Spits out fuel when I try to pump


For some reason, your fuel tank seems to be heating up or there is pressure within the tank. Thats why the fuel spits back..the vapours inside cause the filling mechanism to reject the filling apparatus.

It could also be a block in the fuel lines, or some other reason. Its too hard to say without a manual inspection.

My best advice would be to take it to your mechanic and have him take a look at it to diagnose the exact problem.

Should you find this advice satisfactory, kindly take a moment to "Accept" this solution. Thanks in advance and best of luck!

Why is gas spitting out the filler when attempting to fuel my 2003 kia sorento


Unfortunately it's a manufacturing or maybe design fault. They all do that. It's the way the filler pipe and it's breather pipe are shaped. After the tank gets to about 9 liters before being full, the fuel covers up the breather pipe, so the air pressure builds up in the tank, compressing the air, and blowing the fuel back out the filler. It used to take about 5 minutes to fill the last 9 or 10 liters. If you do it slowly, which is difficult due to the auto switch off of the bowsers, it can be done without getting fuel all over your feet. It's a small price to pay for an otherwise great car!

I have a 98 CHEV PU 305v8. Had changed the fuel pressure regulator about 10 mo ago for flooding problems which fixed it. After about 2 months it became very difficult to start after the truck sits for


This problem is caused by a failed fuel pump outlet pressure check valve, it is part of the pump and not sold as a separate part. The defective check valve lets the fuel pressure bleed off and drain back to the fuel tank, when you go to start it the line must be filled and the injectors purged of air, this takes time and causes hard starting. The fuel pump is inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace the pump and sending unit assembly

Try to fill gas tank, gas pump nozzle clicks off, sometimes as much as 10 times in 1 gallon pumped. Something wrong with pipe to tank?


There should be an air vent coming from the top of the gas tank back to the top of the fuel tank. Possibly kinked or pinched, try pulling the fuel nozzle about half way out and filling the tank on the lowest setting the fuel pump will let you.

Car won't start after filling up the gas tank.


Just helped a friend fix this exact same issue on his 2004 hyundai santa fe. Replaced the purge control valve - a $39 part, even from the dealer. Had to get our hands dirty, but it took literally one single hour to replace the part. Filled it up immediately afterward and no more starting problems. Part is located directly behind the manifold - top, rear of the engine compartment - just between the engine
