Dizzy Interesting Problem

Hi all,

My 06 2.2L 5 spd. Vue has developed an unusual problem. When I refuel and close the gas cap. The car doesn't want to start. After several attempts at starting, with no success, I have to hold the accelerator pedal to the floor. The car will then start, but run really rough for a few seconds then straighten out and run fine. Will not give me any problems until I again stop to refuel. Same thing happens. This has happened twice, now.

No engine check light, or any other indication of a problem. Nothing?????

Anybody have this happen to them?

Any ideas?

Bo

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It sounds like your evap canister purge solenoid may be stuck open. If it sticks open, fuel vapors will go into the intake manifold creating a temporarily rich condition. If it only happens after fueling the car, that's most likely what it is.

Is there a procedure for testing this? I'd really hate to start replacing stuff without knowing for sure. Kinda gets expensive.

It's in the engine compartment, it's exact location escapes me right now. Look for a solenoid with one electrical connector with two wires going into it and two vacuum hoses hooked to it. One vacuum hose goes back to the back of the vehicle and the other goes to the intake manifold or an intake vacuum source. Disconnect the one going to the back of the vehicle and start the engine. Use your finger/thumb and put it on the fitting on the purge solenoid where you disconnected the hose from. You should not feel vacuum there, if you do the valve is stuck open or the diaphragm is ruptured.

It's on the output (drivers side) of the engine. Easy to get to.
