The gas system is pressurized so you need a proper gas cap to allow pressure to build up and feed gas to your engine. Buy a replacement and put it on. The car should run fine.

What cause gas tank to have pressure


this is normal, 100%,
if it truly is pressure and not a vacuum sound?

the is a feature set of the EVAP system.

if how ever, it sucks, air called a vacuum, that means the gas cap is wrong. (for sure)
the correct cap has vacuum breaker valve inside, if missing
the gas tank will implode and engine stalls.
proof of that

Troubleshooting for stalling on 2005 Suzuki Forenza


vast checks. really!
EGR stuck open?
but can save the stall, with a fast right foot action,
using the wrong cap with a non suz, missing vacuum breaker will stall the pump an then engine.
stalls can be.
1: engine issues, (compression bad on one or more cyl.)
2: bad spark
3: bad fueling. in that order.
if compression good and spark at all cylinders are good.
the you check fueling.
1: are spark plugs dry , white or black carbon, and/ or dripping in fuel?
reading spark plugs works on all gas engine. 100 years span. to now.
Google how to read spark plugs.
this engine is EFI. and as such can do lots of things.
leaking injectors. clogged , or dead.
low fuel pressure.
too high fuel pressures.
at the least

signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator. the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start usually in the mornings. many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. black soot on plugs, blake smoke from tailpipe, running rough, stalling. you could have residue in fuel tank and need to change fuel filter again. have a very good day !!

One of the problems that trigger a check engine light is either a faulty gas cap, gas cap not on all the way or no gas cap. Once you replace the gas cap you should be able to reset your check engine light or it may automatically adjust itself.

One of your intake manifold gaskets went bad and it is sucking in air where it should'nt be. This problem is very common on this motor. I'm 100% sure that is what it is. But no ofense if you can't figure out how to get your radiator cap off , then this job is probably a little much for you.

Stalling when letting up on gas


Possible

1. Air filter, clean the air filter first and try it again, if it is the air filter cause this problem and get a new one put in.

2. check your oil cover cap, see if there are some white steam bubbling mixed with oil, if it is, maybe either the head gas kit or the block leaking, also check your coolant level. sometime you will see oil in your radiator. means the block is leaking

Hope this can help a little bit

3. Cooling fan doesn’t function right and cause over heat.

4. How many miles on this car?

I wish I can be there for you, let discuss this
