    2003 Tiberon, 4 cyl. , auto. --- When I come to a stop and
    turn off the engine, i hear sort of a swishing noise coming from the
    rear of the car for about 3-5 seconds , then it disappears. My engine
    light came on and i had the code read by an Auto Store ; it said
    possible failure of the 'Evap. Solenoid' (or simular wording) . Is
    this part located at the rear of the car and is it relatively easy to
    change ? Thanks much for your help.

    P.S. The car is running fine, except the gas mileage is very very

    Me thinks your automobile has turned gay too

    Swish is a slang term usually used derogatorily for effeminate
    behaviour and interests (camp), emphasized and sanctioned in pre-
    Stonewall gay male communities.[1][2][3] This behaviour is also
    described as being nelly. Wentworth and Flexner define swish as a noun
    meaning "a male homosexual, esp. one with obviously feminine traits".

    Swishing includes sashaying and the use of limp wrists, falsetto
    voices, feminine pronouns, and superlatives

    Amazing. For 65 years, I thought swishing was the sound of something
    passing close to my ear. What a screwed up world.......

    On the Sonata, there is a gas tank filter in the left rear wheel well behind
    the plastic splash shield. Perhaps it's the same for you.

    Sounds like the fuel tank may be retaining vacuum. Do you have the
    actual code number? The wording you use doesn't tell me much.

    Sorry but dont have the actual code number. When the car is shutoff,
    there is a ssssshhhhhh noise coming from the gas tank area and it
    lasts about 3 seconds then goes quiet. The check engine light is
    coming on about half the time ; when it is on, the gas mileage is very
    poor. WHen the light is not on, the gas mileage is superb. No
    driveability problems with the car . Any ideas ? Thanks.

    way of devices ? Thanks.

    You can make sure the hoses/pipes aren't twisted/pinched/restricted.
    Still, I'd like to know the actual code number so I know I'm sending
    you in the right direction. If the problem is what I think it is,
    you're unlikely to find anything visually. Furthermore, diagnosis will
    require a very systematic approach with a voltmeter attached to the
    fuel tank pressure sensor in order to verify whether all pertinent
    components are operating normally.
