Check your charcoal canister system, and vauucm line going to it and or solenoid valve in line with it, and even !! a good gas cap !? The canister can purge to the intake manifold as soon as the throddle port opens ,allowing extra fuel during warn up and can cause a rich start condistion!

I have 2002 sonata H-matic since late it has a severe miss when starting. after starting it runs smoothly but as soon as start for a couple of minutes the mis is there. please help me solve this problem
That could be many things, but, let's start by changing fuel filter, air filter and try to pump gas at one station if possible.
When changing fuel filter, pour the gas of the old filter in a container while shaking it a litlle. check for impurities..
My wife' Astro Van did the same thing every time she pumped gas at this particular station. Had to change filter 3 times in a two month period. Once she stopped pumping at that station, never had the problem again.
Hope this will fix yur problem. If not, will try somthing else.
no its not the vent.it is the restrictor for the nozzle for unleaded gas.(thinner/smaller then leaded) causing a back pressure when you are filling up.sorry but you will just have to fill up slowly like i do....
I have the same problem..but mine has a hard time getting up to 55 ..it also does the hard shift thing and will not excelerate going up any kind of hill.I've already replaced the input..output speed censor's and had a tune up...it has about 116,500 miles on it and i dont know if its the transmission causing the problems.
Ya, check behind the drivers rear wheel. There is a black box which contains the charcoal canister, filter, solenoid. You'll need to jack up the car, take that wheel off, mud flap and another plastic section inside the wheel well which will expose the hoses that run in and out of that box. . . . take note where all the hoses go. You'll need to remove the whole thing to get at the filter. The electrical lead that attaches to the solenoid has a unique locking clamp so its difficult to unplug, I opened the trunk and cut the wire where is runs into the wiring harness.(careful to leave enough wire to work with to re-connect it). The filter is hopefully the problem, its only around $10.
Evap canister / close solenoid and air filter $211- 230.00 in parts
$675- $71.00 at dealships for this small 30 minute task
If no check engine light Evap canister and air filter - fixxes problem 100 % note:you may be able to get by just replacing air filter- works rarely
if have check engine- close solenoid and purge solenoid may need replace- you local autozone- like autozone will pull check codes for free
the how to:
Jack car up in rear - behind right rear tire - canister -canister close solenoid & air filter are located in a plastic box with metal strap and one bolt.
Unscrew bolt everything drops down the EVAP CANISTER is held to plastic box by wirer tie . Remove wire tie and solenoid connection. There is a small metal wire clip the holds the solenoid electrical connection together with a flat screw driver pry up the wire clip , off is okay too , ....it will go back on.
Once you have done all that you have full access there are i believe from memory 3 rubber hoses with clips ......Mark hose connects very important mark the hoses way the going on evap canister with color tape .
Next, remove whole assembly- the solenoid and air filter will come with the evap canister.
Now that have the whole assembly move to your work bench look to see how the soleniod hook up to the canister and the air filter - now, disconnect the hose to black solenoid and remove the air filter which hook to solenoid and solenoid at same to ......
Next seperate the the solenoid and air filter- you should be air to put your mouth on solenoid and blew air in one hole and out the other- this solenoid is noramlly open- if air dosen't go threw is stuck closed and must be replaced.
same with air filter- this air filter are know for get plugged and should be replaced every 30,000 miles.
Also note: over fill you gas tank , at fill up - can cause the Evap to get liquid gas inside which cause the chorcoal in the filter to swell up and plyug the system up.------ you should when fill up stop pump gas after the auto pump click off on normal work tank and not try to top off you tank.
note: check with your deal for exact wieghts weigh the evap canister - six pound - replace it- new one is about 4-4.5 pounds - it is just best to replace .The evap holds gas fumes then send to engine so that dosn't vent to
All parts are dealships only -
This is easy fix and normal, for gas fill problems
