You might be a victim for crappy gas for the gas stations. some places known for it is speedway and such low end places make sure you get gas from the better places like mobile or shell and never fill up at a station that a tanker is filling the station up you will get sediment that the tanker stirred up when refueling the underground tanks. they have screens to try and filter it out but stations don't care. i have known some stations after hours run water in there tank to stretch out there fuel supply and it lowers the octane to the point you'll never get combustion to fire the engine. you'll have to either jack up the vehicle and take the filter out and turn on the pump to get all or most the fuel out or complain to the gas station and try and get a reimbursement. and put some fresh fuel in.only thing you can do.and while the filter is off good time to change it 5 -10 dollar part.hope this helps ya. best way to check is get some in a cup and pour a little on the ground and try and light it if it don't fire or smell strong sorry your a victim off low octane watered down gas. i might be out of place here but it happens to many many people everyday.

2005 DODGE CARAVAN STALLS OUT AFTER YOU FILL IT UP WITH GAS


When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

Why is gas leaking out my Evap fresh air hose every time i try to put gas in my car and start it


I suspect you are OVERFILLING your tank...

There should be a direct connection from your canister to the top of the fill tube. It is intended to safely draw out gas fumes.

even if you don't OVERFILL... gasoline can expand (coming from the cold ground... into a nice warm car) enough to repeat the symptoms you have depicted.

Try putting in less gas...

Things will most probably resolve themselves... otherwise you might need a new canister.

Be safe... DO NOT OVERFILL.

Why do i have to rev. my engine to start my kia rio everytime after i put gas in the car


I had the same problem with mine about two years ago. The problem drove me nuts for six months. The solution was replacing the purge valve on the intake of the engine. With the purge Valve hung open when refueling raw gas vaper is washed into the engine causing the engine to become flooded after fueling. Hope this helps and good luck.

Car ran out of gas, when gas was put in the car just cranks but wont start.


I know with some cars, you need to put in at least 5 gallons of gas after running out in order to reset the sensor so it starts sending the gas

Jump start it, and keep pumping that gas pedal.

Good Luck.
