    Same issue on a 2002 Hyundai Sonata. Shelby7 says to "check the vent in the tank. If the bleeder is clogged the air in the tank won't escape and will not let the fuel enter the tank."



    My question is - HOW & WHERE!

Check the inlet tube for obstructions(kinks colapse etc.) and also check the vent in the tank. If the bleeder is clogged the air in the tank won't escape and will not let the fuel enter the tank at a faster rate of speed. Hope this helps

Fuel filter location?


most are in the gas tank.

Easy job if you have a floor jack, 2 floor stands and wrench.
Empty the gas tank, place jack centered on the gas tank jack up the car, put the floor stands in place to hold the car steady, disconnect the wiring go to the gas tank then remove the bolts (most cars only have 2 holding the tank braces, slowly lower the floor jack with the tank on it, remove the fuel pump slowly and carefully as not to have anything fall in the tank.

Pumping gas


Could be a venting problem with your gas tank, or a blockage in the filler tube going to the tank.

I have a 99 bonneville. About a week ago i was putting gas in when i knew it was almost empty, and the pump kept shutting off. I did this for a few days, putting in just enough to not run out. Then it went...


Sounds like the vent for the tank may be defective. The vent is on top of the gas tank between the tank and the floor of the trunk.
Or there is a blockage in the fill pipe for the tank below the connector hose.
You may have to have someone remove the tank and inspect it.

Loud clicking noise and black smoke...


Seems like an injector and valves. Check if all injectors are giving same pressure, none leaking or damaged, the injector pump working fine and all filter in the pump are clean (yes there are small filters inside under every electro-sensor), get valves gaps checked and adjusted. at this kind of mileage its a must.

Gas leaking out where you fill the front tank


You probably have a defective fuel-tank selector valve. Its located on the left frame rail, halfway down. While the vehicle is running, tank"A" is pumping fuel to the engine, while tank "B" is getting the unneeded fuel that is returning from the engine. Thats why it is overflowing.

Fuel Gauge reads empty, but tank IS full


the float in your gas tank seems to have water in it....water is heavier than gas, that's why gas floats on top of water....try putting something like HEAT in it to dry up the water in your tank....
