Santa Fe won't start after fuel fill up
After fueling my 2004 Santa Fe will not start until I pump the accelerator multiple times. What could be the cause of this.
Could be a multitude of problems. Fuel pump may be getting weak, fuel pressure regulator could be going bad, weak spark, some vehicles will not run right if you didn't put the gas cap on tight. First check your gas cap. Make sure it's on tight and not cross threaded. When it starts, how is it running? Are the RPM's normal? Does it chug or hesitate? Is it still doing this at every start up, or just that one time?
purge valve solenoid/ purge vent/ purge canister... NEVER TOP OFF GAS!!! ruins evap system and activated charcoal from purge canister enters lines clogging purge valve solenoid, problem often causes fuel nozzle to "click" multiple times while fueling
changed purge valve this fixed the problem
was it the purge valve solenoid or purge vent/ purge canister? I guess 2 different parts - lol http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/dorman-oe-solutions-evaporative- purge-solenoid-valve-911-800/10017804-P# or http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/carquest-by-intermotor-vapor- canister-purge-valve-cp620/10101059-P?searchTerm=purge+valve+
thanks, I topped off tank, replaced cap securely. While trying to start engine was turning over but chugged a couple of times, after 3 attempts it started but sluggish and I had to quickly put vehicle in drive.
Hawk, do you have a check engine light on? If so, head to Autozone and have codes scanned. There are multiple things that can cause your condition. Anything from a bad ECT sensor, MAF, or a bad vacuum line. See if you can narrow it down with an error code.
