    Sounds more like the fuel tank fill vent valve. Here is a diagram for you http://www.2carpros.com/forum/automotive_pictures/249084_5_93.jpg If the air is not displaced as it should be, it just burps it way up the filler neck till you see it.

    Not sure how far back their information goes back,Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com
    There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
