2 Answers

you have a pressure valve on the fuel rail,push it in to let the air out of the gas line or your fuel filter could be stoped up.cars today do not vapor lock,it used to be you could pour cold water on the fuel pump,but this was befor the electric fuel pump.

I have to second the comment stating that new vehicles do not vapor lock. Fuel injection systems use a fuel vapor recirculation system combined with a venting gas cap that make vapor lock almost impossible. I would make sure you are using the right gas cap (I am pretty sure only one was offered). Other than that, we need more information on your problem to help you.

    If a car has a vapor lock issue will it sputter as if it ran out of gas or just quickly drop the rpm with no hope of saving it by pumping the pedal or by putting it in
