Question about 2001 Hyundai Tiburon

01 Tiburon - stalls in reverse & cannot fill gas tank properly

When trying to fill my gas tank it acts like it is full and if I press the gas trigger hard it spits gas back out. I can fill it but super slowly.

I recently had a tune up and I wonder if the fuel filter was put on wrong.

Alos, when at a low idle the car sometimes stalls out like it is not getting the needed gas.

Any help would be great.

    I have an '01 Tiburon too and my tank has this same problem, a mechanic looked at it and said he flushed the hoses but the problem is the tank and he said check for recalls but they are all for 2002-2003 tiburons. My tiburon was dated 08-28-01 though, but the company still said that car didnt have any recalls. HELP?

    I have the same problem. I can't fill it past 3/4 tank. My mechanic tells me it's probably a broken baffle and the cure is to replace the whole tank or live with it. He says it probably won't get any worse, but I commute 150 miles a day and I need a full tank. I converted it to E 85 a while back and my mechanic says that likely has nothing to do with the problem. It's not easy to find a station when I need it though.

I also notice this on my tiburon 2001, I find out that for a reason if I leave the keys in the contacts (even only at accessories), the problem occurs, but if I completly remove the keys while fillng the gas, no problem at all...

I had the vent check and it had no restriction. They checked the hoses too.

    I finally took it to hyundai, bought the tank online for $190, and after spending $200 at hyundai, it finally works. They said my old pressure valves in the tank were clogged with charcoal from the old charcoal cannister and needed to be replaced: a total of three valves that totaled $40.

This problem is often caused by a clogged check valve at the charcoal canister, or a canister that has been gas saturated. The most common cause of blockage is spider webs, believe it or not.

Have the vent line checked. If clogged, won't allow to fill tank.

When filling up the pump stops as if the tank is full. I know it's not as I can only pump about a quarter of a gallon of gas at a time. I can hold the handle so the flow of gas is so slow it will fill


run the fault codes as the problem is normally about venting and this is a purge valve for the canister problem. having said that there are lot of poorly designed fillers on the market that will not allow quick fills as the pump hose trigger keeps cutting of no no reason. You may have to just take your time when filling like most people do.
In this country lock fillers have been banned and you have to hold the trigger until the tank is full. Stops idiots from putting the nozzle in the tank and then wandering off and allowing the tank to over fill and create a dangerous situation..

Is difficult to fill gas tank


Gas pump nozzles have a device in the end that when gasoline runs back up into it, it turns off the fuel flow." There's a tiny hole near the bottom of the gas pump nozzle connected to a small tube.
Normally, air flows through that tube while you're filling and the gas keeps flowing as long as you hold down on the trigger. When that hole gets covered by gasoline (when your tank is full), a vacuum forms inside the nozzle and an automatic shutoff switch gets tripped, turning off the flow of gas with a thunk. Next time your fueling up try to reposition the nozzle.

Gas pump shuts off while filling tank constantly


like answer number 2 up there, California has a Fume Collector over the nozzle, and extends over the hose itself.... its really important NOT to "top it off" after the nozzle shuts off automatically.... it has a tendancy to fill up that vapor space with gas, and you can try to put gas in your car, but it stops each time you pull the "trigger" on the handle (acts like the tank is full) The service station person needs to come out and drain out the excess gas from the hose vapor space. (they are quite familiar with this.... it happens a lot)

How can i get to the fuel tank send unit only reads half full


well if you have it an empty fuel light came on to your dash, then you have travelled and just consumed the whole entire reserved gas in your tank, so when you are filling it up again, it will fill-up first the reservoir for your reserved gas then if it reach the minimum level of gas in your tank, then the fuel sensor unit will tell you now the exact amount of gas level on your gauge just keep filling it up (gas), DO not Press the entire trigger of the pump, just press it half way and moderate while filling -up gas so wont stop clicking and you thought that you have your tank full already but it was not.

I have a 2002 Chevy blazer and it has a problem filling up the tank. It acts like it is full even when it is empty. What do i do to fix this


the vent tube in the filler neck is either plugged or disconnected, remove the filler neck to check it, lack of ventilation causes the gas to foam in the filler neck and triggers the filling nozzle

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.
