There is a breather tube fitted to the tank which allows air to escape when you fill it with fuel.

That is either blocked or compressed.

When you take the filler cap off is there a gust of air in or out of the tank

2009 hyundai elantra gas tank engine light


Buy a new tank cap. Fill ur tank slower. Inspect the fill hose for akink or damage. And looknst the overflow vent line. Fuel caps keep air out they do need replacing once and a while. Ur take vents at the cap sounds like ur cap is not venting or ur return over flow line has issues try a new cap first. Then go deeper if issue still there chk the top of the tank where the gauge sending unit is. Etc etc.

It wont take gas it will spit it out whfn you add.


try turning nozzle upside down and pull trigger when gasing, may just have to pull the gas lever slightly so the pump pumps slower, had to do that with past vehicles

Replaced fuel pump in 2000 hyundai elantra and


well if she ran it to long with no oil it might be locked up and might be able to turn it over if its not to bad. but you should still get power going to your fuel pump i would check all connection going to fuel pump and no broken wires. try even un plugging battery to see if there's a bypass

Where is the fuel pump located on a 2000 Hyundai Elantra?


Sorry , its probably inside the gas tank. If you are lucky , there will be an access panel under the back seat , or in the trunk. If not , the fuel tank has to be removed.

Where is the fuel filter on a 2000 hyndai elantra


If it's anything like the 2000 Hyundai Accent (which it probably is) it is mounted on top of the gas tank. First make sure you have a tank that is less than half full (8lbs per gallon), then jack up the car and place jackstands in a secure place. Then place a jack and 2x4 under the tank. Remove the 2 straps and slowly lower the fuel tank, it's most likely on the passenger side on top of the tank.

Stop and talk to a dealer to see if they have a TSB on this problem,
Dodge had this problem and they corrected it by installing new tanks.

2000 Hyundai Elantra starts only sometimes.


Here is a view of where the fuel pump is located (in the gas tank) and what all the components look like. Good luck.
