Appears to be the charcoal canister which may be restricted. Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

There is no filter, I would have a good repair shop check the "vent valve " operation. if its not open it will cause that problem.

My car ran out of gas, now it will not start


If high miles, it may be a fuel pump. Fuel pumps usually go when gasoline is low and pump gets too warm. This may mimic running out of gas when there is a gallon or two of gas still left to draw but needle reads empty. Have someone put their ear to the gas tank while you turn on the ignition switch. the pump should run for 2-10 seconds with key on and not cranking.

If you don't hear the pump run, then investigate further for a failed pump.

Replaced the fuel pump and filter on a 2001 pontiac grand am se. car wont start is there anything else or filter keeping the gas from going to the engine?


dont know if I can help but make sure the fuel pump comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition on if not check the relay under the hood you may need someone to help with this there are 4 terminals when you pull the relay out one will have power all the time with the key on another one will have power for a few seconds when you first turn the ignition on if you have power there and the fuel pump dosent run at all the relay may be bad you can also check the connection by the fuel tank for power when you turn the ignition on also I just put a fuel pump in my sons 2000 grand am and it did not start after I put the pump in but I could hear the pump running but we had only put a couple of gallons of gas in so I put another 3 gallons of gas in and it started I also just put a pump in my daughters 2001 grand am and it started right away but I had put 5 gallons of gas in right away You can also see if there is fuel pressure at the fuel rail on the right side or passenger side of the engine there is a connection to check fuel pressure you can take the cap off and use a screwdriver to push the valvestem in to see if there is fuel there and any pressure. if you have power to the fuel pump and plenty of gas and the pump wont run try hitting the bottom of the fuel tank under the fuel pump with a ribber hammer

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

Was low but not empty on gas and car died


listen for the fuel pump to engage when you turn the key would to the on position, not all the way to the start position. Have someone knListen above the gas tank in the trunk or below for the sound of a small Electric Motor starting up and running. If you do not hear this it is likely a fuse to your pump blown. If so there's probably are reason, likely the screen that filters the fuel before it goes to the pump may be clogged. The this is often from using dirty gas cans when trying to get that extra free gas from grocery store fueled points. The

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run


Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

97 Land Rover Discovery was running great. Ran out of gas put some in, at least 3 gallons, but now it won't start. Anyone have any idea why?


you do have to reprime te system which can take several minutes of trying to start. be careful not to burn up your starter. Never crank more than 10 seconds at a time, let starter cool after 2 minutes.

when you ran out you could have sucked all the debris in to your fuel pump and damaged it. have someone turn on the key while you listen under your gas tank for a humming sound. It will only last 1 or 2 seconds. that is the pump, if you hear nothing then your pump is bad and will need replaced. Also, check your filter what may have passed through te pump will not get passed the filter and it could now be clogged up. To locate the filter, follow the line from the tank to the engine and it will be in line before you get to the engine.

Is my 88 dodge caravan fuel injected?


I beleive the fuel pump is in the gas tank, have someone go back to the gas tank and someone else turn the key on, if the pump is good you should hear it working, if you cant then youve probably burned the fuel pump up. When you run them completly dry of fuel it only takes about 1.5 seconds to burn the electric fuel pumps up.
Good luck.
