Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
Immediately after putting gas into the car, the car won't restart. I've been stuck several times next to the gas pump. After a while, and more cranking, it will finally start and then runs fine until I fill the tank again. Ideas? 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe, 3.0 liter (middle size) engine.
Just helped a friend fix this exact same issue on his 2004 hyundai santa fe. Replaced the purge control valve - a $39 part, even from the dealer. Had to get our hands dirty, but it took literally one single hour to replace the part. Filled it up immediately afterward and no more starting problems. Part is located directly behind the manifold - top, rear of the engine compartment - just between the engine

It sounds almost like you're getting air or into the fuel lines when you're filling the tank or some kind of temporary blockage. I would suggest to change your fuel filter first and add a fuel system cleaning agent to a full tank of gas. If that doesnt work, get a fuel pressure test done. The results of the test will let you know more. It could be a vacuum leak. Every time you open the fill cap, the pressure is leaving the system and without a good vacuum it will take time for the fuel to move through the rail to the cylinders.

Check the fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator. This could also be clogged injectors. But it sounds like you are not getting enough fuel to your system on a full tank which would be your regulator.

You are overfilling your car,when you click more than once at a fill up,you are filling the expansion tank,which vapor locks your system,stop over filling,besides it also pumps gas into the vapor recovery system of the station,so you are losing gas too

Sounds like the purge control valve on your evaporative system is stuck open. In this case, what happens during fill-up is that fuel vapors are forced from the fuel tank into the intake manifold, effectively flooding the engine.
Todays fuel tanks are vented back into the engine. A "Carbon Canister" is supposed to absorb the vapors and then feed them into the engine in a controlled manner. If your canister is saturated or the purge valve stuck open, the fumes can "flood" the engine while refueling. Try holding the throttle wide open when you start after refueling to clear the vapor quickly.
Also next time you go to fill up, don't fill it all the way, maybe half or so, since the evap lines are at the top of the tank this should solve your problem, and give you at least some good information to take to your mechanic

it uses a spring loaded tensioner.use a breaker bar to rotate the tension and it should just come off.if u need a pic or anything else to do it let me know,

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.
