The last three times I've put gas in my car, when I turn it on to leave the station, the idle won't "catch." It fires right up, but then dies if I don't hold my foot on the gas pedal.
I can't imagine what tie-in it has with fueling up, because it doesn't do it any other time. When it does this, I have to pop the RPMs up to 3 or 4, hold it there for 5-10 seconds, then release, and the idle will catch down around 850. Doesn't die while driving (or at least it hasn't yet) and any other time I turn it on it starts just fine. It doesn't matter how much or how little fuel I have when I add more, it's happened both when I had a quarter of a tank left, and when the low fuel light was on.
It did this one about three or four months ago, but the next time I filled up it was fine. Now it's the last three times I've added fuel.
Hi there! sorry to say you got a sonata!! i was a master tech 4 hyundai! check your fuel pressure? replace fuel filter and check the release valve on the the fuel filler neck and the fuel tank breathers.

All dodges have a bilt in code check, on my 94 caravan, i have to rev up the idle to approx 2300,for 10 seconds, turn off all accessories, put foot on brake in regular idle, put shift lever in all gears, go back to park, turn key on and off 3 times the third time leave in start position and watch the check engine light, it will flash in series, first will be 1 flash followed by two quick flashes, this tells you your computer is working(not a problem code) then watch for other flashes and write them down, the last code should be a 55, meaning 5 quick flashes followed by 5 quick flashes of check engine light, at least you can diagnose some problems this way, best to purchase manual from autozone, there is a section on this process, or take to your local autozone and have it done free
Let her sit for a little while. Then, turn the car to the "run" position, and assuming you have an electronic fuel pump, it will begin to prime itself (Because you probably lost prime when it ran out of fuel). Keep doing this about 5-10 times, leaving it in the "Run" position for 20 seconds. If you have a mechanical fuel pump, however (you will know because turning the key to "on" with the blower motor off makes no noise, unless it's the electronic fan), you will just have to keep cranking, letting the starter cool back down, and repeating until it fires off.
Lots of reasoons for a no start this answer is as if it was running OK just the other day and was starting OK. The gas tank has gas? Spinning real freely indicates to me that the timing belt broke. The oil cap off the valve cover look in there to see the cam and crank engine you should see it turn. The fuel pump may not be coming on. The fuel filter could be frozen not letting the gas go though. The spark may not be happening as A senser or also a plug wire or other wire off inspection of these things something off can be the only problem
