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
