Question about 2001 Hyundai XG300

Fuel pump shutting off every few gallons

I had this same problem. The problem was I let the tank get too low on fuel too much. The fix is there is a ball inside the gas tank like a ping pong ball that gets sucked into the line and won't allow you to put in anymore gas. They have to go in and get the ball unstuck. I think maybe they even replaced my ball. Anyway, I don't let my tank get down to empty anymore.

    I don't know what your explative means, but when I couldn't get more gas into my tank, the Hyundai service center gave me the above explanation (including the term ping pong ball) and that IS how HYUNDAI fixed the problem. THE BALL WS STUCK.

Fuel gauge doesn't work


mine did the same thing 2 years ago. i assume it is probably the fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank so i priced a new one. as i remember it was about 350.00 for just the part. my computer reads in gallons and is still accurate as to telling me how much fuel i have used so when i use 10 to 12 gallons out of the tank i fill it again. so far i have had no problem doing it like that. just don't run out of fuel because that is really bad for fuel pumps. mine has a 14 gallon tank so i make sure that i never go below 12 gallons used. i usually try to fill at 10 gallons used

What is the tank size for the 1500 ,trying to get fuel milege on truck .


To determine fuel mileage, you don't need to know the tank size. Fill the tank and write down the odometer reading. Drive a few days, then fill it again. Write down how many gallons it took to do that.
(gallons are right on the pump at the station). Subtract the miles you first wrote down from the reading when you filled it the second time. That's how many miles you drove. Divide that number by the gallons you used and that tells you how many gallons it took per mile. So, if you drove 100miles and used 10 gallons, your mpg is 10.
The capacity of the tank is not how many gallons you can use before you run out of fuel. All tanks have a space below the fuel pickup that contains one to three gallons of fuel you can't use. So, if planning a trip etc, figure your "range" on how many gallons it takes to fill it up from a pre-determined low reading on the gauge. ignoring the actual capacity.
One tip: it's good practice to never permit any vehicle with an electric pump go much below 1/4 tank. The pump is cooled by the fuel in there and running low will cause it to run hot and shorten it's life.

About a gallon of water was mistakenly put in my tank when extremely low. It ran for about a mile and died. I have since put gas treatment and about 3 gallons of 93 octane gas but need to bleed the water...


remove fuel line from fuel rail end and put switch to on position let some fuel come out from line, then replace fuel filter, check oil if any water marks in oil if not fix fuel rail line back you are readu to use it normal.

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

Ran out of gas, and engine stopped. I put 4 gallons in and will not start...


The fuel pump which is in the fuel tank is lubricated by the fuel it pumps, when you run low on fuel (below 1/4 tank) the pump will overheat, and if you run out many times they will seize up, bottom line the fuel pump must be replaced.

Gas pump repeatedly shuts off when fueling.


You may have a partial blockage of the air vent. You might try something as simple as using a non-metal long strip that can reach the tank through the vent hole in the fill tube. Be very careful not to use anything that may cause a spark as you may cause a dangerous explosion. If that doesnt solve the problem. you should either remove the tank and clean it or have that done. My guess is that if the tank is that dirty you need to replace the screen and pump in the tank while you are there.

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
