Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Engine Stall/Stumble after filling the gas tank

I have a 2002 Chrysler Mini van with the 3.8 L engine. My wife have been complaining about her van either stalling or stubling when she tried to take off. Every time I drove the van it worked fine until I put fuel in it then after leaving the gas station the engine would stumble/hesitate when accelerating back onto the road, In some case it would completely stall out and we would have to restart the engine. The problem seems to go away after about a minute or so of normal driving and doesn't come back until the next time you put fuel in. Could this be some sort of gas cap issue?

POSSIBLY. BUT MORE LIKELY TO BE A VAC LEAC TO THE EVAPROTIVE SYSTEM. CHECK ALL OF THE VENT TUBE UNDER THE VEHICLE, EXPECIALLY AT THE CHARCOAL CANISTER. REPLACE ANY BROKEN LINES AND THEN TRY AGAIN.

Air Conditioning not working properly


My wife once mistakenly topped off the tank with diesel instead of gas. Same symptoms. Gas also goes bad when it sits in a tank for several months without a stabilizer. Try adding a fuel stabilizer and filling the tank with high-octane premium gas.

I have a 2002 Hyundai Sante Fe. The check engine light has been on for months.No one can seem to find out why. Every time I fill up the gas tank I have a problem restarting the engine - I have to play with...


My educated guess is that the purge control valve is stuck in the open position. This valve is part of the emissions system on your Santa Fe and normally is closed when the engine is turned off. If the valve sticks open, fuel vapor gets pushed into the engine when filling the fuel tank. This creates a fuel mixture that is too rich on the next start up.

Stall upon running out of gas but won't start up again with gas


Remove the air cleaner and pour about a quarter cup of gasoline into the carburetor or throttle body. Do not stand near the engine when cranking it -- fire/small explosion hazard.

The throttle position sensor may be wet. Several auto parts places like autozone or murrays or o'reillys will check this for free and test the computer in your vehicle for the check engine light.
