Vent valve has failed closed or cannister is clogged up. Have the evap system checked from the tank to the charcoal canister. If you need to drive to a mechanic, try driving with the gas cap loose.

SOURCE: Problems Running

i am going to have to ask you to get someone to duplicate these conditions while they have a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to the car, sometimes fuel pumps only fail under these conditions and it sounds like it may be acting up,,,, please rate and have a great night -jeff

SOURCE: hyundai accent stops running after heats up

I had the exact smae problem and threw aaway a ton of money on bad "guesses" at what was wrong. The actual fix was replacing the crank shaft position sensor for 50 or 60 bucks. Swapped out bad for good and cars has run great every day since.

SOURCE: 2001 hyundai santa fe hard to start engine after filling gas tank

not sure it should happen that fast but it may.... buy yourself a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze and put them in the gas tank... sounds like you have a lil water problem ... this stuff is basically alcohol (not the kind you drink) and it will suck up the water.

SOURCE: Car wont start after I fill the tank

I have seen this many times on Sonatas. The problem is likely to be your cars Purge Control Valve sticking open and allowing fuel vapor to be pushed into the engine while filling the car with gas. This valve is mounted near the intake manifold and has a vacuum line to the manifold and another that routes under the car to the vapor canister.

There is a sensor (dont exactly remember witch 1) That is related with the ECM Motor That Gets The car Just Few Little rpms more wen you turn to encounter the HP needed for the powersteering pomp to be able to assist you turning.. i think its the Knock Sensor Not Sure You should look that up seriously cuz ive seen that kind of problem before, it was the sensor in default reading BUT you SHOULD be able to see the problem with OBD2 diagnostic, if not ask your mecanic to test the resistance of the sensor following the specs of the manufacturer

good luck

My van sedona 2005 after i stop it,it won't restart unless i press a few time on the gas pedal ,and also runs rough a bit what could be the cause of it.

May be the starter or fuel pump. Might not be getting gas after turning it off. the gas may be settling to fast into the fuel pump and none staying in the engine. My friends SUV does not start unless you pump the gas pedal. Not an expert but its what i know it could possibly be.

I ran out of gas, I tried to pump the air line by pushing in the knob valve to release the air in the gas line, not sure if this is the right valve, it's a 2002 grand am, do you have a picture where the...

Just turn the key on, wait for a few seconds, turn it off. Turn it on again, wait for a few seconds, and repeat this about 5 or six times. Then turn the engine over and see if it will start. When you first turn the key to the "run" position, you should be able to hear the fuel pump cut in for a couple of seconds, and then stop. Listen at the gas cap if you can't hear it from leaning under the car.

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.

I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

My 1995 honda civic started sputtering yesterday, it got progressively worse. Today it stopped on the side of the road. It won't start now, just turns over.

First, Distributor: Coil (which is in your distributor); igniter (ignition control module) also in your distributor, rotor, distributor cap--all possibilities,especially is you are not getting spark to the plugs.
Next, Fuel pump: It is fairly typical for honda electric fuel pumps (it is IN your gas tank, under an access cover that is under the rear seat) to, when failing, work, then not work, then work, then stop working altogether. If you are not getting fuel to your fuel rail, then it's a good bet that it's your fuel pump. (If you can hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key to ON, but without turning the car over, that would indicate that your fuel pump is working. Have someone listen over the back seat, or maybe you can hear it if everything else is quiet). If it runs, it could be a plugged fuel filter, but that's not as much of a possibility.
So, check the distributor components (getting spark?) and the fuel pump (getting gas?).
Hope this helps you get started on the problem.

Hey, I just replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter on my 91 Saab 900s and the care turns over but does not start or it starts for a few seconds while pumping the gas and cuts off when you stop the gas....

take out your shrader valve in the fuel rail and bridge 30 and 87 on your fuel pump relay. Run the pump untill there is no more air in the lines.
