Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It was morning and I stopped to get gas. When I got back in my car to start it
the motor just cranked and wouldn't start. It did this 3 times. I turned the key
off after each time. On the 4th try it started. Does anyone know why this would
happen?

You have a failing Evap Solenoid... if you take it to the dealer (stealership) they'll charge you about 150.00-190.00 to install it. It's a 30.00 part and takes less than 10mins to install it. The Evap Solenoid is on the intake manifold and is held down by 2 10mm bolts... just replace it and the problem will be solved.

The dealer called it a Purge Solenoid.

same deal... yep-- it should be 30.00 or so dollars...

Wish I had asked this question sooner. It's at the dealers now and the part was put in. It's costing $300.00. They told me when I took the car to them that they tried to duplicate what it was doing for me but couldn't. Now they are keeping it over night to check it again. Next time I ask here first. Thank you so much for your help.

I've always said if it weren't for bad luck I wouldn't have any at all.

Although I think you got good information here this time....don't ever believe everything you read on this forum as there is sometimes some very bad advice found here.
