99' Legacy runs rough after filling gas


Recommended Posts

My brother recently bought a 99' Legacy for his daughter. It runs great except when he fills up the gas tank, it doesn't want to start. He has to crank it over quite a bit, then it will start but it runs really rough, spits and sputters, then dies. It will do this a a few times, then it runs beautifully again(until he fills it up again, then it does the same thing). Next time he isn't going to fill it up all the way and see if that makes a difference. I have never heard of anything like this before. Is there a sensor or a vent hose that might be getting gas in it???

Not sure if it matters but the car has a manual transmission, 2.2 liter 4 cly, and has about 215,000 miles on it.
