Looks like you're replacing the purge solenoid and no more topping off.Tiger3000 said:I tried again last night to fill the tank without topping off but same thing happened. First time it did mot start. Second time I fully pressed the acceleration twice quickly and the engine started.
My 2008 did that twice before I went searching for answers. I was always topping-off the tank of every vehicle with each fill. Usually an extra 2 - 3 litres (about 1/2 a gallon). The first two trips to the gas pumps with my brand new Acadia ended that bad habit. Never had the problem again after filling only to the first click.Tiger3000 said:Thanks everyone. Yes I think the guy always try to round up the money.
I'll try to avoid it next time and see.
I'm not sure if this is an option for you or not, but my solution to this would be: Dont turn off your vehicle when you are fueling. I live in South Dakota where we fuel our own vehicles & the temperature is quite often well below zero when doing so. we do not shut off our vehicles when we fuel here, (we leave our heaters going full blast) & I have never gotten any "static" for not turning off my vehicle. Because I don't turn the Acadia off when fueling, I have never had an issue with leaving the gas station.Tiger3000 said:Hi all,
I have problem with my 08 Acadia. Every time I go to petrol station to refill it, the engine does not start immediatly. It takes me 5-7 trials before it starts again. It works perfect until the next visit to the station. Any idea?
People actually do that? Wow.rbarrios said:would that be like the folks who are pumping gas and smoking a cig?
Ive seen it as Ive pulled into a station--h2oskierc said:People actually do that? Wow.
In Minnesota, it is actually illegal to leave your car running while gassing up (unbless that has changed since I went through drivers ed).
