Bought this car in February, '04 and every time I fill it up it stalls almost immediately after starting. It'* hard to get away from the pump because the only way to keep it from stalling is giving it a lot of pedal.
Once it gets past the first two or three stalls it will idle without pedal (in park) but surges from almost stalled to about 1000 rpms in a methodical pattern. It smooths out after driving for a few minutes (stop and go stuff and several stalls take place).
The first time I thought it was the 89 octane I put in but then it did it with 93. So I just stopped filling it up - LOL. Then about two weeks ago the service engine soon light came on and a friend borrowed a tool that he hooked up to the computer - he said it was something in the EVAP system, possibly the gas cap. He said EVAP stuff is a pain in the
I told him about the stalling after fill-up and he said 'Don't fill it'
Also I misjudged last week and filled it again...same problem but this time I was getting on the highway. It ran 'ok' for about 3 or 4 miles then acted like it was going to stall for the next couple miles, then smoothed right out like before.
Has anyone experienced this problem before?
I'm going on a long trip in three weeks and it would be nice to be able to fill her up.
