    For what it's worth - I make a habit of buying the shop tech manuals (when available) - when I buy a car ... According to the tech data - the fuel filter is accessible at the top of the fuel tank, through an access panel - itself under the rear seat. NOW, the fun begins. Getting the seat to stay out of the way is item ONE. Getting the RTV-like black goop to break lock on the panel is its own challenge (I'm still contemplating a linoleum knife). Meanwhile - without being able to SEE the little bugger - I'm uncertain as to the actual fuel-line hook-up arrangements (nothing specific mentioned in the manual - but they're apt to be high pressure fittings - and the after-market filter I purchased doesn't look to be designed for such fittings - despite Auto Zone's assurances ... It'd be aweful to botch the access or job, and NOT have a way to get around for a GOOD fix ... The "factory" recommends 52.5K-miles replacement - but the dealerships don't like doing the job - and recommend AGAINST replacement. I've been having a bear of a time with the check engine light going on AFTER getting fuel (and I replaced the cap with a factory one - which stopped the issue for only 3 weeks - and then an after-market that had no effect). I suspect a somewhat clogging fuel filter, as - despite my buying expensive Chevron - this whole shooting match started after ONE particular fueling last summer. I would like to be able to remove and replace the fuel filter myself - but what a bear of a time it's going to be ... First, when you get through the panel goop - you're supposed to disconnect the fuel pump wiring - then start the car and run it until it stops (removing fuel pressure on the filter). THEN comes the fun part with whatever pressure fittings they employ and I can FUBAR ...

    Those are the facts. Sometimes having the facts doesn't help the situation much. I have 76.5K-miles on my 2004 Accent (manual tranny) - and am mostly delighted with it (key word being mostly). I was not happy that the gel-cell battery from the Korean assembly was NOT procurable HERE ... Wet batteries ... **** !!! Changing the tail light in the rear hatch is a bit of a bear, as well (not to mention how the headlight modules are packed in there) ... Do it yourselfers are having a harder time each passing year. I'm Mike, and that IS the way it IS ...

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank

I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.
