You would have to have the fuel pressure tested, but the vague description could be several things. but to count of the pump you can have the pressure tested at most if not all Autozone stores.

Have you changed the fuel pressure regulator on the driver's side fuel rail? How much fuel pressure do you have? Mine runs at about 45 psi.

SOURCE: gas not getting to engine

sounds like your fuel pump, normally fuel pumps die gradually not just like that, so best check fule pump fuses first, also i can not remeber if these have a fuel cut off switch, this is normally located arround the fire wall it looks like a red or black rubber button, if you have one you can press that and see if that sorts it, if not then it more than likley is the fuel pump and will possibly need replacing, but check the other things first, better a new fuse than a new pump...hope that helps a bit

The best thing would be if you had a scan tool to monitor the o2 sensor.If you suspect water just add some Heet in the tank and see how that goes.The only other thing is to check fuel pressure but the tester that hooks up on these is one that has to be hooked up on the fuel lines between the filter and the fuel line that goes to the pump.The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.There could be problems there also.The rubber fuel line from the pump to the sender could be bad or deteriorated.There is also a pulsator that is between the pump and the sending unit that can be bad. You could also have a plugged fuel filter.Depends on if it has ever been changed or not.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Testimonial: "Yes, I changed the fuel filter and have run Heet and other additives through the tank. I'm thinking fuel pump is the problem. Thank you."

The pump could very well be shot. Running the vehicle that low allows the pump to get hot. Then when you add fuel, the coldness of the fresh gas can seize the pump. The best place to start would be checking fuel pressure.

I have a hard time starting my 04 Santa Fe after i fill up


it was running then you removed the gas cap to fill ( extremely dangerous practice with car running)
that indicates that there is a problem with the EVAP system.
run the fault codes ( what the dealers should have done first ) and check for the EVAP codes , purge vent or solenoid problems

I have a hard time starting my 04 Santa Fe after i fill up


The most common cause of this is thermal shock (gasoline is very cold out of the ground) to the electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank, when the pumps get worn the decrease in temperature from the gasoline causes the pump to stick. This is a question I see fairly often, so I did research to see what the common cause is. Next time this happens have the fuel pressure checked.
