Car doesn't start immediately after getting gas?

Asked by Nov 17, 2016 at 11:01 AM about the 2009 Kia Rio Rio5 SX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi. My 2009 Kia Rio won't start right after I get gas.  On the second or third try it starts but I have to floor it to get it to stay on. Then it's fine for the most part until I get gas again? Occasionally I get fumes while driving or the first start in the morning. Also the last time I filled my tank gas came back out like a waterfall after the gas pump had shut itself off but before I took it out??? Would this be the purge control??

I think you have a problem with the EVAP system and the tank is not venting properly.
