      Car won't start after fueling it up?

      Hi, I have a 2009 Chevy Aveo5 LT - every time I fill it up with gas I have to push the gas peddle to the floor and time it right or it floods and won't start. I think it is the fuel filter, I bought a new filter and now I can not find where to install it. Youtubers say its in front of the passenger rear tire by the tank and I have even seen pics of this but I still can not locate it on my car? Please help me find the fuel filter

      Thanks,

      Aveofun

      I believe all the US models have the fuel filter in the tank as part of the fuel pump assembly. I'm wondering if there is an issue with your EVAP system...

      I believe all models of the Aveo even the Australian delivered Barina's (I have a 2010 and know for a fact) the fuel filter is in the fuel tank.

      That said Eric O at South Main Auto recently did a video on a Ford that had the same issue and he mentions at the beginning that it's a pretty common problem across a lot of manufacturers, everything with a purge valve. The video is https://youtu.be/QMIFj9WLTWc

      I buy from Costco only. Unless out of town then it's which ever gas station available. The fact is it doesn't matter where I gas up I get the same result.
