Try filling up a little less. To me it sounds like a vapor lock issue which clears after you burn off the top bit of gas.. Next time you need fuel up be sure to keep track of how much you put in. Another idea is to run the tank down and then only fill up to half a tank. If the problem clears then you know that you're having a vapor issue probably due to gas saturation of the canister (which can happen if you overfill the tank).

Sounds like you may have picked up some water at last refueling. Drain the tank or just drive the car till you get rid of all the bad fuel. U should go back to where you got the lousy gas and have them reimburse you. I did.

Engine problem related to fuel refill


Evaporative emission
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.
EVAP Evaporative Emission Control System - AA1Car.com Is the check engine light on ? Do you have problems with gas pump shutting off while pumping gas. When the pump shuts off the first time do stop fueling or top off the tank ? Overloading the charcoal canister > Stuck open purge valve .

SES Light comes on after we refuel vehicle, code is bad gas cap. We replaced the Gas Cap 3 Times. It still comes on after refueling.


this is not just a bad gaas cap code. it is a leak code for the evap system and will need to be tested to find leak. look underneath vehicle and check hoses on the evap canister for cracks or fallen off the canister is next to tank rectangular box. if dont find anything it will need to be "smoke" tested to find the leak

Ran out of gas recently. when refueled and started again,check engine symbol stayed on? well mainted and has always ran great since new.


Sometimes the check engine light will come on if the fuel cap is not on tight enough. Check the fuel cap for an intact seal and install at correct tightness.

A major auto parts store will read out the stored trouble code in the car's computer for free. If the code pertains to the fuel EVAP system, the code probably set because you ran out of gas. Copy down the code and then have it erased. The check engine light should go out. If it comes on again, have the code read and the problem checked out.

2004 Hyundai Sonatai V6 hard to start after refueling...and stalls before it finally operates properly...Car has 100K milkes


You describe a purge control solenoid valve which has stuck "OPEN" (meaning it is continually applying a vacuum to the charcoal canister). When this happens, the engine computer cannot modulate the 'purge flow' from the charcoal canister. It is 'sucking' fumes continuously from the canister after refueling & is flooding the engine (excessive 'RICH' fuel condition).

Replace the PCSV (purge control solenoid valve).

Sounds like the valve in the gas cap has failed, try replacing the gas cap with the correct one listed for your vechicle
