Just when the car is normally running, is the check engine light showing up?

The check engine light is on but it was doing this before the light came on
Hyundai Mechanic: Mike V., Hyundai Technician replied 11 months ago

That's ok

Usually the problem is caused by a faulty closed canister valve.

This is mounted under the vehicle near the charcoal canister. Sometimes they fail closed. When this happens the fuel vapors cannot be pulled out of the charcoal canister. So, when you are putting gas into the car, the vapors have no place to go. So the fuel and vapors come back up the fill tube and kick the pump off.

You will want to also check the smaller line off the canister and make sure there isn't any charcoal in it. If there is then the canister will have to be replaced and the line cleaned out. This causes the same problem just a different area.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
