I have posted this before but have since had some more information so i'm
hoping that this may help.
I've had a long on-going problem when filling up the gas tank the pump
clicks off repeatedly. This has nothing to do with the pump and everything
to do with the car.. That's been figured out a LONG time ago.
I had a code P0441 which related to the purge valve which was replaced
yesterday. From my understanding this is more emmissions realted and
although part of the same system has little to do with my problem.
On fixing the P0441 code i now get P0445. The dealer performed a smoke
test which proved fruitless. The gas cap is also a non-issue. They also
checked another valve near the charcoal canister which was also fine.
However, talking to another senior tech he did say it could be the
charcoal canister that's cloged with gas due to a prior overfilling.
It has been overfilled in the past before i knew this wasn't something
that should be done. He thinks that because the canister is full of gas
(he said it did smell like it was) that this could be a possible cause?
The canister itself is about $250cdn plus time to install.. I'll give the
dealer credit as the tech said they could get one in and try it first to
see if it an issue as he said he wouldn't want to charge me for a part i
don't need. Thumbs up to them for that.
After forking out close to $700 yesterday for other work.. i'll have to
wait to follow this up but any comments on this especially from
hyundaitech would be very much appreciated.
