The Kia Has a Pocket Of Air Space When your Pushing Gas In On A refueling Take it Slow Add you gas at a lower speed on fill ups or say 20 bucks worth at a time it wont over flow with the air back lash if you slow down that was my experience With mine the inlet hose to the tank has always trapped air from internal pressure built up by gasoline in the tank during warmer weather it will be more, The Gas Cap Is Supposed to Vent Also You might want to check yours out

Pumping gas will not help. My guess is you have no fuel rail pressure due to bad fuel pump. Find shrader valve on fuel rail and test it for pressure.

Gas smell


I had a similar problem with a 2000 Kia Sportage. The check engine light came on all the time. Part of the problem seemed to be the fuel cap having high pressure. Then one fine day I smelled gas fumes from the rear of the vehicle. After removing the fuel pump cover in the rear behind the seats, I found gas coming from a hose from the tank. I then (sometime later) I found a crack in another hose. The hose was from the filler neck. It caused a lack of vapor pressure and a smell. The check engine light now was off.

Usually, the reset is located in the trunk. Check the fuel pump fuse. Check the fuel pump relay if equipped. You can also turn your key to acc for 7 seconds, turn it off. Turn it on, and off. This will prime the fuel pump. If you don't hear it at all, it is probably bad. Some are located in under the back seat and some, the fuel tank has to be taken off. The pump needs to have 12V, in order to work correct.

Car wont start starter turns fast but dont start as if out of gas.i have gas.


If the starter is turning fast you either have no fuel getting to the injectors or no spark to ignite the fuel. If you smell gas coming out of the tailpipe it's probably spark related. If you smell no gas coming out of the tailpipe it may be your fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. Check the fuel pressure.

The most likely cause of this is a clogged fuel filter. If you almost ran on empty and then filled up it kicks up sediment in the tank that gets sucked up in the pump and then clogs the filter. If you are really unlucky, but unlikely would be a clog in the fuel injectors. You will need to pull the filter off and replace it.
