Thanks for the reply Vader, I did just as you suggested & tested the solenoid. It's operating correctly..
I remembered that I started having this problem after I went thru emission testing & failed the pressure test. I went out a got a new gas cap, not realizing the a$$hole who sold me the car had put on a vented cap to hide the fact that the fuel return line & the vapor/purge lines are switched. (thanks to my friend who did a simple test with some kind of a pump) So when I put the non-vented cap on.....
Looks like I have a project ahead of me. I hope there is an easy way to do this, I've heard about droppin the rear end & gas tank method.
Thanks again Vader, I appreciate your help.
May the Great Karma God smile on Eli, seller of my new ride!!!
