Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you tried lubricating the o ring and surface of the filler neck with a light film of grease ?

I tried it really didnt do anything. I was reading there is a vent valve which i bought but i can not find it any where.
Hyundai Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

thats not going to make getting a cap on or off easy or worse, and the vent valve is located under the vehicle close to the gas tank by the charcoal canister, is this a oem cap you have?

I was reading something about vacuum in the tank as a cause
Hyundai Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

but this happens every time you put the cap on and take it off right?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Not putting on just taking off
Hyundai Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

so that would rule out the vacuum issue, do other people say this cap is hard to take off?
