Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a 2008 Saturn Vue that fails to start after fueling up. It cranks through the first cycle , and when we try it the second time, it starts immediately. Only does this when we fuel up. It has 3.6 V6 and is all wheel  drive

Go have the fuel pressure checked on it,this is the only true way to know if pump s going bad.

Sounds like the purge valve for the EVAP system is stuck open. This will allow gasoline to be forced into the engine causing it to flood with gasoline and refuse to start. Is the check engine light on? If so it's probably because of the purge valve. To help get started hold the gas pedal to the floor while cranking. This puts the computer in "clear flood mode".
