story Q: I am having an odd issue with my 2001 Saab 9-3. After the car is fueled, it is hard to begin. I have to crank the engine, then stop, crank again, stop cranking, and so on. This problem occurred after I had a valve job done on the vehicle. Never occurred prior to. The vehicle will run usually till fill-up time. I thought I might duplicate the problem by eliminating the gas cap and re-installing it once again. No dice. I in fact need to add gas. This happens when I refuel at any tank level. Gas cap seal is like new. No tears. Exactly what do you believe? Air in system, fuel pressure regulator, filter screen? I require your assistance before I burn out the starter. A: The two more than likely possibilities are a loss of fuel pressure upon shutdown or an issue with the evaporative emissions system. Because you must really fan to produce the hard-start symptom, fuel pressure bleed-down is less most likely however simple sufficient to check. Rather than repeatedly engaging the starter, just turn the ignition key from “Off” to “Run” for 2 seconds, and repeat this a half-dozen times prior to cranking the engine. If this substantially helps, fuel pressure is bleeding down. This can be verified by attaching a fuel pressure gauge to the test port on the fuel rail. The fuel pressure must be 43 psi with the engine running and must hold a minimum of 33 psi for 20 minutes after shutdown. Look for any fuel leaks near the fuel rail and injectors– all these elements were eliminated throughout the valve job. Also, pull the vacuum hose off the fuel pressure regulator to see if there’s any raw fuel in the vacuum line, which would show a dripping diaphragm in the regulator, enabling raw fuel into the intake system. However I’m more suspicious of the so-called evap system, specifically the spring-loaded float valve that need to close as the tank nears complete. If this valve does not close, as the tank nears full, liquid fuel might be required into the charcoal container and flood the engine when the purge valve opens at start-up. Q: I have a 1 …
