The vent tube on the filler neck is probably clogged or pinched somewhere. If you get under the car and look at the filler neck you should see another tube coming from it... that's the vent tube. Either try getting a piece of wire through it or you might be able to blow compressed air into the tank. One of those methods should clear the blockage.

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.

While pumping gas into my kia sportage, gas overflows back out


First thing to ask, Did you turn the engine off and taken keys out, because I know some folk who around this time is cold outside and leave the engine running while filling up, and this happens. If not, you got a promblem here, The vent valve is damaged, this is located between the pipe going down to your gas tank and where you are filling up. The vent valve, and filler pipe is one unit and will need to be replaced to solve your promblem.

Why is it difficult to fill the gas tank? It takes 20 minutes to fill the tank. I have to pump it real slow or it shuts off as if it's full


The vent tube that follow the fuel feed tube has a kinked area that needs to be straighten out I assume since I can not see it. That is the most common problem in your case. If no kink is found it may be a collasp hose as well

We have a kia sportage that wont take gas when filling. it sprays back at u. but tank not full


have someone check the vent valve and hose, a common problem is spiders go inside the vent hose and make a web nest, this blocks the system. so when filling the tank the air in the tank cant be release and so pump shut off and fuel sparys out, take a look , bet youll find a spiders nest.

We have trouble filling the gas tank on our 2002 echo. The pump keeps shutting off


sorry to say, this is typical of the echo, after a couple yrs, the fill tube begins collapsing, not allowing enuff fuel flow,, your alternatives are to replacew the fill tubes, or to just pump fuel very slowly.

Can't fill gas tank on 2002 Sportage


Try not to put nozzle completely in the tank. There is an anti-syphoning device that is smaller than the rest of fill tube and can cause back pressure. This can be removed
