Quick question for anybody out there. I took a cross-country trip last month in my 2000 Hyundai Sonata. About 4,000 miles into the trip, after numerous fill ups with no problems, I filled the car up and when I went to start it, it turned on, got to about 1,000 rpms and sputtered out almost immediately. I did the same a few more times with the same result. I ended up having to rev the engine a few times and then kicking it into gear immediately to keep it from shutting off on me. For the rest of the road trip thereafter, and up until now, the same problem occurs when I get gas. But ONLY when I get gas. Any other time the car starts fine.
I’ve tried taking the gas cap off and putting it back on without filling up and the car starts fine. I just had it in the shop and they said they couldn’t find any codes in the car indicating there was a problem at all with the engine in the recent past so no luck there.
Any thoughts on what this might be? I can live with it because I’m eventually able to get the car started, but it is annoying.
Thanks for any help!
