    2005 Dodge Grand Caravan stalls after gas fill up. The van will stall while driving. After a few tries, it will start again and run fine.

    I have bought a replacement cap and the problem continues ... I think that was a good idea and may be the problem in some cases.



    Thanks for your advice.

    There is a canister located under the car that can go bad. The replacement cost is about $100 for parts. There are three hoses leading to the canister which is located approximately under where the driver's feet would be. Replacing the canister appears to have solved my problem. Thanks for the advice on the gas cap ... I tried that first.

Maybe the gas cap is faulty - it should be able to vent, but if it does not vent fast enough, a vacuum can be created in the tank that prevents gas from going to the engine.  Try leaving the cap on LOOSE next time after a fill and see if it helps.  If it does, buy a new gas cap.

When i filled my tank to the top always just drove 1/4 or less from gas station and the van wants shut off ,just at the beginning after this is runing ok ,,but just when i filled the tank .. bytheway


I'm assuming that this was the first and only time is has done this. If so then you may have had something blocking the fuel lines or the pickup in the tank that no is lose. I would monitor this to see if it happens again. if not then great if it does you may have to have someone blow out your lines and clean your tank. another possiblity is the fuel pump is starting to go

Why does my tahoe use so much gas


its not the gas its the price of the gas that seems like bad mileage go to gas station and fill till gas pump clicks off at slow fill record mileage and gallons to fill/road test for 25 miles go back to same gas station same side of gas pump and refill at slow fill and record miles and gallons to refill this will give you best practice for fuel mileages/PS drive in cityor highway not both causes difference in gas mileage

Filled tank with gas and now my van wont run well or even start sometimes


If this happened right after the fill up then perhaps you put in the wrong octane or perhaps deisel... Some gas stations have older tanks which can be filled with water. Change your fuel filter and also confirm that the fuel pump is up to par and not failing.

Every time you try to pump gas, the gas pump shuts off every 5 seconds. Doesn't matter how slow or fast you allow gas to come out. Doesn't matter what gas station. You never know when it is filled. Gas...


try disconnecting the fuel line leading into the fuel pump, let out a little fuel, then reconnect it. then disconnect the fuel line leading out of the fuel pump, letting out a little fuel.
if that doesnt work, run the car completely out of gas once. turn the engine over a few times while empty.
have you tried pumping gas with the enigine running? see if that helps. if this does help, it is probably the vacuum someplace, near the fuel injectors?

I have 97 cavalier not sure if i had gotten bad gas think so drove over 500 miles no problem went to different little gas station 40 min later driving started to have problems wanted to stall when trying...


use a tank of high test 93 octane, had the same type of problem with my 97 cavalier 2.2 ltr motor. If I would shut the car off for a few minutes and then restart it, it would drive normal again for a while. This would typically happen on hot days especially if you are sitting in traffic. A fillup with 93 octane gas for some reason would seen to solve the problems for a few weeks even after filling up with normal low octane 87 gas after the high octane fillup. I found no reason for this behavior and I am a mechanic all I know is that the car hasn't done this for me in some time and no repairs had been done, just one of those weird things cars do once in a while. mine has 277,000 miles and still running

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.


The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

What brand of gas is the best for a 2003 nissan sentra. Is chevron a safe choice?


some prefer a name brand although I always fill up after 8 AM in the morning at my local station. The reason is the tanks are filled at 7AM at the station I go to giving me the satisfaction no moister from a very low underground tank will get into my gas tank when I fill up. All fuel tanks receive moister in their tanks. The tanks are electronicly read from inside the filling station. They have alarms that sound if too much moister is inside and shut the picticular tanks pump down. Some times they do not shut down for many reasons. One is a over ride switch incase that tank is the only one left with fuel in it especially on a holiday weekend. It has happened to me a few times causing my car to throw codes from the computer and also stalling out a few miles from the gas station after filling the vehicle up. That is why I choose to fill up mine after the station gets their fill up
