Asked by Oct 29, 2014 at 12:37 AM about the 2001 Hyundai Sonata Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put about 10 - 20 cents in and it clicks off. Then it will take another 10 - 20 cents and it clicks off again. Keeps doing this until I am finished fueling.

This is a common problem with that model. The gas tank vent is plugged up.
