difficulty starting Sign In

2004 Hyundai Sante Fe, V-6, 132,700 miles, Original owner

ONLY when I fill gas tank, it is hard to start. Has happened last two times I have filled tank. Once I finally get it started, I have to hold down accelerator to keep engine running (RPM's drop to under 500 if accelerator not held down). NO starting problems any other time. After putting in gear and going down road, runs great. Have NEVER had ANY mechanical issues of any kind with it.

More than likely the EVAP purge valve is stuck open allowing gas fumes to flood the engine while your refueling.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
