Default Engine is having troubles starting up after being filled up.

Anyone know how to fix this? Every time I fill up my car, it seems to take longer and almost sounds like it wont even start.

hi. someone has had this problem before on the forum. i dont remember exactly what it ended up being. i did a search and found the thread but not an actual answer. i would think it might have something to do with the fuel pump or evap system. is the engine light on on the dashboard?

Yes it is, I don't recall the specific code for it but it said it was emissions. Didn't specify what part of emission.

ahh, thats important. you need to find out exactly what code the car has. that will point you in the direction of what/where the problem is or might be. see if you can find out what the code is then let us know.

check the purge valve, if you can blow through it, its bad. it should be shut by being "stuck" open every time you fill your tank vapors go from the fuel tank through the canister, and subsequently the purge valve entering the intake manifold creating a rich condition allowing the engine to have a prolonged start. if you hold down the accelerator after you fill up and it starts normally you have found your issue

How do I check the purge valve? Is it a fairly simple check or one that requires taking a lot of shit apart?

Also It very well could be the purge valve, I know the emissions code list the purge valve as the issue or possible issue if I recall right.

Lastly, does it hurt anything if I don't fix it?

Easiest way to check the purge valve is to remove it and try to blow through it. No air should move through the valve while it is not being activated by the ecu. It is located on the back side of the engine towards the drivers side. It has two hose going to it one runs to the intake manifold just beneath the throttle body I will attempt to take a picture of one tonight and post it here. Not replacing the purge valve will not cause any damage to the engine it is solely an emissions part and used to vent vapors from the charcoal canister. By the way what is the dtc the ecu is showing?
