Question about Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

2 days after filling my 2003 Hyundai Sonata w/gas the gas started running out of the tank. It has done this twice. At times the auto shut off at the gas station stops filling the tank before it is full. It acts like it has pressure in the tank is that possible?

Why can I not set the gas pump to fill. Pump will shut off after about a dollar fifty worth of gas every time. Hyundai sonata 2003

The large hose from the filler neck to the tank may be kinked or collapsed, there is also a vent hose following the same route that could be the problem.

Hyundai sonata 2003 when filling with gas, the pump will shut off as if the tank is full. Every time, everywhere

Try angling the gas pump handle at a differnt angle than just up and down, also try pulling the neck out during filling.... also if you have time go to the dealer and tell them and show service what is going on during filling, maybe they have a technique for filling.

Fuel fill problem gas pump keeps shuts of when i try to fill

Iown 02 hyundai accent gl 1.6l. Had the problem twice. I used to over fill the tank until I had to spend close to $550.00 USD. The problem is when we overfill the tank. the carbon canister gets clogged and it damages a sensor in the assembly called "DMTL". Thia assy is located under the rear driver side of the car to the left and rear of the fuel tank. Once I replaced the carbon canister, sensor and filter the problem went away. if you let it go for a long time you eventually start smelling gas inside the car after fill ups. Good luck.

After filling up my 2004 Hyundai Sonata, it has trouble starting. It takes 3 or 4 attempts then it will start, shake a bit, then run fine. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Try some dry gas, there maybe water in the tank or crud being kicked up,

Next time fill it up when it gets to a 1/2 tank to test..

if the problem remains it could be a evap or pressure problem..

How old is the fuel filter?

Sonata 2003

We have an "04 Suzuki Verona that does the same thing, we have found that it is not the station as much as it is the angle that the tank inlet is on. When you put the gas nozzle in, it fills with some air to replace the gas comming out of the nozzle. Unless you find a place that has a higher pressure pump, you are in a long and "Clicking Off" ownership when it time to pump gas. For the record, I have noticed that if I chose the lowest setting on the handle, the pump will ussually fill about $10 at a time. two or three of those, and its a done deal. Hope this helps you.
