Question about Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Hundai that keeps spurting out gass (like it is full) when I try to puit some in. It doesn't matter how slow I do it. I disconnected all the vent hoses that go to the gas filler neck, and then the gas goes in with no problem. Is it a charchoal canaster problem?

Hi, the problem you are having is with the vent hose itself you tend to find that these get blocked and then this causes the back pressure when you try filling the tank up, so all you need to do is replace the vent hose and then this will allow you to fill the tank up as normal

2004 Honda Element 4 cyl. has new fuel pump but will not pump gas up to the carb.

I'm not familiar with your vehicle (but I've just spent an afternoon fixing a similar problem on a Fiat..). It's an electric fuel pump?

Ok. There was some reason why you had a new fuel pump fitted in the first place .. had the vehicle been slowing down/cutting out? That is a symptom of a faulty/failing fuel pump, yes.. but it can also be other things.

The fuel filter was replaced? A blocked fuel filter can cause problems, though it's unlikely that no fuel would actually get to the carb.

Can you remove the gas filler cap and disconnect the fuel line where it enters the engine bay and get somebody to turn the ignition on? Fuel should literally spurt out. Removing the gas cap and disconnecting the fuel line will purge any air in the system. removing the gas cap also allows air into the tank and prevents a 'partial vacuum' which restricts fuel supply.

If you disconnect the fuel line and switch the ignition on you should hear the in tank electric fuel pump working.

You mention carbs ... Does your car have injection or carbs?
If it is a carb model .. a sticking fuel float will cut off fuel supply into the engine.

Your first action should be to disconnect the fuel line somewhere in the engine bay, and turn on the ignition. If fuel spurts out the problem lies in the injector/carbs.

If no fuel comes out the problem lies with the pump/tank.

1997 Transport. Why does gas keep spurting back out fuel tank neck, yet it's not full?

When it is close to being full you have to get the last amount in slowly lest you have it spurt out at you. Normal for all cars nowadays.

I have a 1995 pathfinder that keeps stalling on me when I start slowing down

Mine did the same thing. We cleaned the throttle body and poured Sea Foam, a gas treatment, in the gas tank... also check the air filter while you are at it. worked for me.
