Question about 1999 Kia Sportage

2 Answers

Car will not start after gas.

Hi, I have a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe with 61,000 miles on it. I first noticed this problem in August 2008 while driving from Las Vegas to NY. I was at the gas station and after filling up, it had to be pumped and turned off and on 3x before starting. I continued to NY and drove all the way back and it did not happen again until December of same year. This continued off and on all the way until May of this year. Now it almost always gives me a problem at the pump. I started to seemingly "override" the problem by simply turning the key in the position after start but not off. Now, even THAT does not help, I took it to the dealer as it was still under warranty but like a toothache at the dentist; when the mechanic was with me and I got gas, it started right up and I was left standing there looking crazy. He claimed to not be able to know what the problem could be due to not seeing my claims. Once after filling up, I pumped the gas pedal and it started and then as I was driving home, I felt that the car was slower to go after stopping at the red light. I continued to the store and after returning to the car it was only able to back up out of the parking spot and then it stopped and I had to start the process all over again. This never happened again. (maybe I pumped it too much) I just do not understand why it only happens at the pump and never after sitting parked for days. My gas tank cap has not been changed or compromised in any way. If I risk my life and others and ignore the signs telling you to turn off the engine at the pump, then it works just fine. PLEASE help with any info or advice.

Deposits build up in the gas tank over time due to poor quality gas. When you fill your tank, you stir up those deposits and causes them to get stuck in the fuel filter causing low gas pressure. I recommend driving until you hit empty and drain the rest of the gas out of your gas tank, then replace the fuel filter. Of course buy a gas can that will hold enough gas to get you to a gas station so you can fill your ca. when you get to the gas station add some gas treatment to the tank and fill it. The treatment will clear out any deposits that might be in the fuel lines between the gas tank and the filter. Fuel filter have replacement intervals just like oil and if you dont keep up on those, it comes back at you.

It sounds like it may be your fuel pump or fuel filter. Some times cheaper gas stations aren't giving you quality gas. Letting a vehicle sit for days or weeks whatever is in the gas has settled so it isn't disturbed until you drive it around or put more gas in. Which gets into the fuel filter and make it harder for the fuel pump to work.

2004 hyundai santa fe gas/oil smell in the car


There is a fuel leak in the engine compartment. It could be the vapor canister for the gas tank too. The defrost and heat pull air into the cabin from the engine compartment if you don't select "recirculate".

Gas pedal reving up and not relaxing.


I have had a problem on a 2008 Santa Fe with the gas pedal going to idle while driving. I shut the car off and turned it back on and it behaved normally so I drove it to the dealer. It had triggered the check engine light and the Hyundai mechanics were able to read a code that told them that the problem was in the sensor on the pedal. They replaced it under warranty. No problem since.
