Check engine light came on. Shop replaced gas cap and found charcoal had escaped from canister and moved into lines. Cleaned out lines, replaced solenoid and charcoal canister. Light came on again after about 50 miles. Don't know what's wrong now, but car runs great, so for financial reasons I am going to wait to get it checked again. Won't be able to pass smog check if this light is on, though.
Started with trouble filling gas tank. Hose shutting off in the winter at the beginning of the fill kind of like in the summer when it is hot and there is vapor lock. Won't let me put in much more than 25-50 cents then cuts off. Repeats many times. Last time I held the nozzle up and in to the fill cap as far as it would go and that let it fill more. Then when I went back to the position it would be in for normal filling or "auto-filling" it choked again. After maybe 5-6 tank fills like this, the red engine light is now shining on my dash.
check engine light on for weeks showing code PO 443 changed vent control solonoid and still have light on, something to do with EVAP system, lost!

Car was hard to start after gas fillup. Looked it up online...common problem= purge valve. I replaced it and problem solved for 8000 miles. Then it happened again. Replaced valve=problem solved for 6000 miles. I just replaced it again. We will see how long this one lasts. Thank goodness for lifetime warranted parts.❇
MIL [Check engine light] illuminated on dash. Garage diagnosed as P0440, [generic code?] and found straps holding EVAP canister were rotted, allowing same to partially drop and disconnect. Reattached and reset codes. Within 2 weeks, MIL reactivated, and I purchased a scan tool, which now shows P0441 [manufacturers code] purge valve problem. Yet to be re-addressed by repairer, who is not a Hyundai dealership, but a licensed repair facility.

Unable to fill the fuel tank, it only allows 1 gal to be put into the tank. Air Compressor used to blow out the venting system. That didn't work, we will now be trying the Evap Charcoal vent canister...

This part continually fails! has been replaced twice and now is needed again. Since it really doesn't affect the vehicle, dealer told us OK to not do it a 3rd time.

Filling the car takes a lot of time as the gas pump clicks off from the gas backing up in the fill tube.

08 Azera, replaced the canister ($300+), 3 times purge valve replacement, light keeps going off & on. Back to dealer Wednesday to check for spiders/web in some line.
Eng. lite, cannister purge valve listed as problem. Nothing in Haynes book about it, but same problem with 2003 Chevy Silverado. I just have to find problem area and fix it.
Check engine light. 2 codes came up - one was 0302 and don't remember the other. Still working on this
