There is a sleeve in the tube that the gas nozzle goes in..Just pull it out a bit and that will let air in around the nozzle when filling up.

I think i can help you with that my sportage has done the same thing to me. but you ethier have air in ur gas tank due to not tighting the cap all the way and driving it on anyhting under than a full tank, and the second thing might be the little metal flap in the to of the tube may be bent or not sealing all the way.

2003 kia Sorento gas keeps spitting back out when I try to fuel up

There's usually a flap on the fill tube below the gas cap. Try to put the pump handle past the flap, and slowly pull the pump handle to fill the tank.

Why is my gas tank spitting gas back at me?

There\'s a blockage in the secondary tube (about 15mm diameter) that runs down to the tank, adjacent to the main filler tube. Take the back wheel off and you\'ll see a plastic cover over the whole filler neck assembly. The secondary tube often rust and fills with dirt. The tube can get damaged too, if crushed the gas will spit back.

Check your fuel filter again. Dirt from the tank could have clogged it again.

My kia spectra engine light is flashing and when i start car smoke comes out while spitting out gas out back pipe of my care, what does this mean

Are you very sure its spitting out gas? If smoke is light in color, you have a blown head gasket-coolant level will drop and you can smell the odor of coolant in the air. If you're sure you have unburned fuel spitting out your exhaust, this is extremely dangerous to everyone around you so don't run it and get it to a shop or reply back to me...

sounds like you may have some water in there. Buy some dry gas treatment and put in the tank.

Gas issues

Are you sure it is gas? Most cars will spit out liquid water as a result of the combustion process. If it is gas, get to a competent garage who can do a full analysis.
