Problem to fill up gas tank

I have a 2003 sedona, the owner states that at all times when he goes to fill up - it takes him 15 min to fill. Nothing is splashing back out, but it does seem to keep cutting out the over-fill on the pumps. He has tried changing angles with no effect. I have heard of this in other models, but I want to know if anyone has een it in a sedona and what if any was the remedy

We had the same issue with our 2002 KIA Sedona. A filter that snaps onto the side of the fuel vent canister (A plastic tank located just in front of the fuel tank) may be plugged. I replaced it for about $25.00. It's a tough job, only because the KIA is so close to the ground.

Hope that helps,
WF

I have seen this in isolated cases at KIA , there was no TSB but the info was at the KIA site for techs , i believe it had to do with what was called the RORV , (roll over valve) , if i recall the fix was to drop the tank and replace this valve , it was in isolated cases .

Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.


Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

I have a 2003 Kia Sedona, recently put in a new radiator. The dash gauge goes from normal to high,and back.I check the engine looks ok.What is the problem? Ted


Do the following exactly as stated, i think u have air in the system.

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml , if it still overheats then you need to have the head gaskets checked with a gas analyzer for hydrocarbons present in the radiator or recovery tank

My friends Carnival (Sedona) dose the same thing, This is just fuel vapor releasing from the breather. Nothing to worry about! If you want to keep up check's, keep a notice on how many miles you can do to a tank, if this reduces then you may have a leak. Have you local mechanic take a look

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


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!

2004 Ford Taurus takes 15 min plus to fill fuel tank, help!


theres a problem with the pipe that goes from the gas tank to the gas cap.Look under neath and see if the hose is pinched or bent.Another cause could be who ever owned it before had the tank out and they messed up the hose when they put it back in but that is differently the problem..

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem


The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
