If you just filled up,and it started this,first make sure gas cap is tight and seal is good on it,then have the fuel filter checked or replaced,next would be the fuel pump getting weak.


You can have the fuel pressure checked,for issue,s above,

Thanks! I just went out and took gas cap off and put back on tight. She started fine, idled fine and seemed ok driving short trip down road. I hope it was one time incident..thx again
