2011 Chev Cruze won't start after fuel fill up
Sounds like the purge valve for the EVAP system is stuck open. When this happens raw fuel can be forced into the engine and floods it out. Try cranking it while holding the accelerator pedal to the floor. This puts the computer into "clear flood mode". HTH. -Jim
I agree. You need to know that when you put fuel in, the air and gas fumes must be displaced somewhere, and not in to the air. The fumes are passed through a charcoal canister and purged when engine is started. And always stop pumping gas at first click, don't try to 'round off' price or squeeze more gas in.
Hi and thank you for any information ahead of time :-) hard start after fueling does not matter if it is five bucks or 30 bucks engine light is on but not flashing fortunately! has been happening for several months. It runs fine when I get it going up the road but initially hard to keep running when I do get it going
My 2012 started doing the same thing! Thank you! Will try this next time!
My car started doing the same thing, will try that next time. Is there anything that I can replace so that it will stop doing that?
Thank you for posting this. My 2012 cruze stalls every time I put gas in it...whether I fill up or not. The check engine light is on....and I losing gas mileage so gonna buy a purge valve and see if that fixes the problem. Thanks so much for posting
my 2012 Chevy Eco does the same thing. I replaced the purge valve both sensors and the coolant tank and I will good 2 or 3 good start ups before I am eventually stuck and waiting for it to start again. my battery new, alternator good, starter good but nothing fixes the problem its just a serious annoying defect
