    I have the same problem with my 2003 Hyundai Accent. It is very annoying. Is this type of problem covered by extended warranties?

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.

    It 4 hours to find but mine was with the Chuck Ball. It is a ball in gas tank that prevents gas from getting out if you flip over. Mine was stuck and they found it by shooting air into the Gas tank through where the nozzle goes. Just make sure you seal the end of gas spout with a rag in order to let the pressure build up and move the ball.

Difficult to fill fuel tank. Fuel pump shuts off constantly as if the tank is full. Fuel tank is nearly empty. Believe problem in vapor canister system.


This is a common problem when filling up especially with the smaller nozzles on modern pumps. You could try pulling the pump out slightly say a third as this often works, also tipping the nozzle can help. The system will stop pumping if it senses back pressure through overfill. I hope this will help you to solve the problem.

Gas pump shuts off early when fueling 2004 Dodge Ram 5.7 SLT Pickup.


My work truck does this as well. Pulling out the nozzle doesnt work either. I know it sounds wierd, but try turning the nozzle sideways or upside down when filling the tank. Works well with my work truck.....

I,m having trouble filling my gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off.


The vent on the tank is restricted and the pump nozzle can't take all the air coming from the tank as it fills. Many gas stations across the country have vapor recovery nozzles designed to capture air from your fuel tank and vent it back into the tank under ground, and out the roof vent pipe on top of the building. It's for fuel vapor emissions reduction. Until you put a few gallons in the tank, pull the boot back a little with your fingers to unseat it from the filler neck, then let go and you should be o.k. If it keeps shuting off after that, then you may have a problem with your own vapor recovery system not working properly. Check other nozzles and see if they all are that way. Mabe it's the station.

Fuel fill problem gas pump keeps shuts of when i try to fill


Iown 02 hyundai accent gl 1.6l. Had the problem twice. I used to over fill the tank until I had to spend close to $550.00 USD. The problem is when we overfill the tank. the carbon canister gets clogged and it damages a sensor in the assembly called "DMTL". Thia assy is located under the rear driver side of the car to the left and rear of the fuel tank. Once I replaced the carbon canister, sensor and filter the problem went away. if you let it go for a long time you eventually start smelling gas inside the car after fill ups. Good luck.

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.


The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

Every time I fill up my 2001 Hyundai Elantra at every station I've been to the pump will constantly cut off during fill-up. I've tried pulling the nozzle further out of the gas tank and pushed it in as far...


When a gas pump does this it is because there is alot of pressure in the gas tank. This is a good thing for you because it means all your seals in the fule system are working good.Next time you fill up open you fule cap and let the car vent for a little bit then try to fill.

My Hyundai Accent 2003 has a problem while filling fuel. It stops every 0.3 gallons. I tried to fill it manually, squeezing the pump very slowly, with no luck. The guy at Tuffy did not have any idea how to...


upon filling the tank, push the nozzle in fully were the nozzles seal meets the filler neck rim. Then pull the nozzle out about one or two inches and try that. It seems to work on cars that have a very thin walled gas neck to the tank

Won't take gaskeeps clicking off no matter where you position the nozzle


If your fuel nozzle keeps clicking off while trying to fuel your gas tank then you may have a problem with your fuel tank pressurizing and releasing the pressure. Meaning your tank vent valve may be bad or stuck closed. this is part of your cars emission system and the only real way to check it is have someone with a scanner access the system on your car and check it. A technician can activate the different valves and switches in the system, check it for codes or other problems using a scanner with the proper software for your vehicle. Something you may can do yourself is just look at the hoses going to and from your fuel tank ensuring none are disconnected, collapsed or kinked, this could cause problems also. Hope that helps.

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.
