Issues Starting after fuelling up

Every time I fuel up my car has issues starting. I end up having to push on the throttle slightly to get it started otherwise it just turns over and over. Once it starts it runs really rough....(most likely flooded a bit).

After the car has run through a few gears all is back to normal. Car starts great every time until I fuel up again.

Anyone ever heard of this?

Re: Issues Starting after fuelling up

I have a check engine light that has come on and off and thought maybe the issues were related to a bad gas cap. I replaced it a few days ago, fuelled up and the issue still occurs.

Did the check engine light stay on for you to check the code?

Re: Issues Starting after fuelling up

Every time I think of going to see my mechanic it turns off. Its currently on now and I'm going there in the AM to check it. I hope it gives me a code and I can fix the problem. A little embarrassing at the fuel pump

Re: Issues Starting after fuelling up

Your ecu should store the code. You can get it scanned even if the cel isn't on.
