The Evaporative Emission Control System (EVAP) is used to prevent gasoline vapors from escaping into the atmosphere from the fuel tank and fuel system. The EVAP system usually requires no maintenance, but faults can turn on the Check Engine light and prevent a vehicle from passing an OBD II plug-in emissions test.

Car sputters/stalls only after 20-30 miles of use, and will work again if it rest for a few hours.


Pull the fuel pick line from the tank ( normally fuel gauge sender unit) and check for a small crack or rusted line that is allowing the pump to suck in air. Check that all hoses are in good condition and not perished (cracked) before then pump

no,you will need to siphon the gas out of the tank.before you do,remove the gas cap,have someone turn the ignition on,while you stand by the tank.the fuel pump should run for a second or two. if it does ,I doubt it is the fuel pump,if it does't,it probably is

1994 chevy pickup won't start


If you listen closely when you first turn the key to the "run" position, you should be able to hear the fuel pump cut in for a few seconds, and then stop. If you can hear it, then it's okay, and your problem is elsewhere. Make sure you have spark. Use a timing light to check. If you can't hear it, check your fuses, both inside the cab, and under the hood. Check to see if there is power to the fuel pump. Chances are it is a faulty fuel pump, but you want to make sure that's what it is before you start, because it can be a filthy job. There isn't a drain, you'll have to syphon as much as you can, and lower the tank with a floor jack. If there is an engine light on, borrow a scan tool and it will save you a lot of time and money. Good luck.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.

Bmw 325i 2003 stall


Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

92 SL1 Intermitant stalling problem


Fuel pump,Fuel pump, Fuel pump,,, high mile cars will always out live their fuel pump. The stalls will become more frequent. But first change fuel filter if it has one outside the fuel tank, if it has it in the tank just replace the pump at the same time. Also next time when it stalls bang the bottom of the tank with your hand and try starting.
