Q: Stalling after fueling

asked by on

Hi. The car was stalling after fueling, check engine light came on. Mechanic replaced O2 sensor, and within 2 days we had the same problem. We've returned it and he says the code was for the sensor before, and is now for the solenoid. Also that cars this age can throw a code, but not another one until after the repair. So, it won't tell you everything at once. I find it hard to believe that we have the exact same problem we did before, but now it's a different problem. In addition, I've looked up the problem online and with the symptoms I'm having it says it is a fuel valve (not exactly the right term) but that's an inexpensive repair that could have been done in the first place. Thanks!! Btw 140K, but the form didn't allow.

My car has 9999999 miles.
