My 2008 dodge ram, 6 cylinder, runs great until I fill the gas tank up and then it will run a very short distance, maybe 1/4 mile, then it dies. I can restart it right away then it will not die again

Asked by Dec 19, 2014 at 08:08 AM about the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

runs great until I fill the gas tank up and then it will run a very short distance, maybe 1/4
mile, then it dies. I can restart it right away then it will not die again until I refuel. No lights
or service engine light comes on. Any ideas? I bought it new and it has about 97000
miles on it.

Leave the gas cap slightly loose ... It sounds like the vent (canister) may be clogged or your over filling and it getting fuel in it
