Fuel issue

Asked by Dec 22, 2015 at 01:48 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab
4x4I have had this vehicle since 2009.  
Since purchasing the vehicle I always fill to
the top with no problem.  For the last 3-4
months when I fill up and drive and come
to a stop sign or stop light the vehicle cuts
off.  I put it in neutral and it starts.  This
continues until after I have driven the
vehicle for
about 10 to 12 miles.  Then it does not do
it again until I fill the vehicle up again.  Can
you give me any reason that this is
happening?

On the newer vehicles you are suppose to stop fueling when the pump nozzle clicks off when filling. Otherwise the gas gets to the emissions canister and solenoid and over loads it as it is designed for fumes recovery, in other words the gas tank cannot breath at that point.
