Why do i have to rev. my engine to start my kia rio everytime after i put gas in the car


I had the same problem with mine about two years ago. The problem drove me nuts for six months. The solution was replacing the purge valve on the intake of the engine. With the purge Valve hung open when refueling raw gas vaper is washed into the engine causing the engine to become flooded after fueling. Hope this helps and good luck.

You should avoid a dealer and go to a local shop
to save money
You have to take in ,as you put it,anytime you get
any MIL Lamp or check lamp on the dash

Expect to have at least one a year

Your not servicing,your diagnosing trouble codes,
related to emission issues.

It could be a bad gas cap,but you don't throw
parts at it,you test first

2001 GMC Jimmy is Hard to start after refueling only. Runs great after finally starting until next refuel. Tried new fuel cap but engine light comes on and shows P1441 on code reader. Says it could be Evap...


Try filling up a little less. To me it sounds like a vapor lock issue which clears after you burn off the top bit of gas.. Next time you need fuel up be sure to keep track of how much you put in. Another idea is to run the tank down and then only fill up to half a tank. If the problem clears then you know that you're having a vapor issue probably due to gas saturation of the canister (which can happen if you overfill the tank).

Car won't start right away after refueling


I just fixed a similar problem on a Toyota Corolla. I'm not certain if your car's EVAP system setup is the same, but this could resolve your problem as well. Your car may have one or both: A refuel check valve, and/or a fuel cutoff valve. Generally these are located off of the fill tube, but the cutoff valve may be mounted on the fuel tank. 01e0b34.jpg
The problem occurs when your fuel tank is overfilled and/or gas flows into the EVAP line. The gas is too high in the filler neck thereby causing fuel to flow into the charcoal canister. A defective refuel and/or fuel cutoff valve would cause this problem. The cutoff valve prevents fuel from flowing into the canister, and the refuel valve helps to trigger the gas pump to stop.

Test refuel check valve (if installed) by blowing air from larger to smaller port. Air should not flow freely and the valve should open as pressure increases. Air should flow freely when blowing from smaller to larger port. Replace valve if it fails either test.

Test the fuel cutoff valve by holding it upright, as installed on car; air should flow freely. Turning upside down should prevent airflow. Also, fuel present in the check valve may indicate the tank was over filled meaning you possibly have fuel in your charcoal canister.

Is your engine warning light on? For the Toyota, code P0441 "Incorrect Purge Flow" was present. Just replacing a defective valve may not get rid of the code. It's possible that your charcoal canister was saturated with gasoline too so that may need to be replaced. I also heard of a situation where the fuel tank was contaminated and had to be cleaned.

Replacing the cutoff valve solved my problem. Good luck! Related Link: http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1998-toyota-corolla-vt190664.html
