Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
Everytime i fill the gas tank, i have to stay on the key for 5-10 seconds to keep turning the engine over, and when it finally starts, i have to keep the gas pressed to keep the engine idling at least 3000 rpms to keep it from sputtering and quitting. i have to keep the engine at high revs for at least a minute before it isnt a problem anymore, and it never happens again until the next fill up. I have even tried stopping the pump myself instead of letting it stop itself thinking maybe the fuel was coming too far upinto the fill tube, but the same thing happened.
Hello, This is not an uncommon problem and I hope I explain ok. Your fuel pump is located in the gas tank. A pump runs very hot when operating. The fuel in the tank actually helps keep it cool. If you have a weak pump, it is not uncommon for it to fail at the gas pump when refullling. We have towed most fuel pump failures from the gas pumps. This is because the fuel that is in underground storage tanks is very cold. After you shut off vehicle. the temp of the pump climbs a little. When you go to put in new fuel, you are shocking the pump and it quits till it is happy enough to start working again. Again, you are not alone. This is common. Unfortunately, not a " in the driveway job" You need to tell you tech my response and get a quote for new pump. The only other thing that could be happening is " fuel lock" . Next time it happens., leave the cap off and see if it starts ok then. If so, you may have cap or vent problem. I am still leaning towrds the pump. BTW. If I am correct it will get worse not better. At one point it will fail entirely. Be ready for this. Good Luck and Thanks

This may solve a lot of the problems I've read on this page...He has a 2000 Hyundai Santa Fe. HAD many of the problems listed in this
site...WE Found that the filler pipe to the tank had rusted thru to where there was only 1/2" wide x 1 1/2' LONG metal holding the
line together...PROBLEM was created buy the COVER plate that is to PROTECT the line....INSTEAD it was FULL of dirt,sand, Mud,
MOST of it WET. ALL this = RUST PROPLEMS & JUNK , WATER, etc. to get into the tank along with the system NOT building up pressure (so call cap problems, etc.)
WE ended replacing the filler pipe, cleaned out the tank, replaced
the filter, SPRAYED the line before installing it with several layers
of under coating paint, and put a bead of sealer around the Cover
plate to keep out further junk of getting in...
That was a month ago---so far NO problems...Knock on wood.
ALL this wouldn't of happened if they would of sealed up that cover plate better ! Also I forgot---We did spray under coating over the
entire OUTSIDE of the plate and wheel well....
HOPE THIS HELPS !

Not sure it should happen that fast but it may.... buy yourself a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze and put them in the gas tank... sounds like you have a lil water problem ... this stuff is basically alcohol (not the kind you drink) and it will suck up the water.

It sounds like the exhaust system is clogged. Try looking under your vehicle with a flashlight and look for bends/kinks in the exhaust pipes. I had a similar problem with my car, when the catalytic converter broke apart, and clogged the exhaust. i could barely reach 20km/hr, and the engine would shut off at 2500 rpm. Replacing the catalytic converter fixed my problem.
