2004 Dodge Ram Hemi 1500 - Vapor canister/fuel issues
I have an odd one for you:
When I fill up my truck completely with fuel I get fuel leaking down the driver's side of the tank at the rear strap where it straps to the truck. If I don't fill it plumb full, leave like a gallon out, I don't have the issue.
Also, when I pull away from the gas station after fulling plumb full within a mile or two the truck will die a couple times.
I took it to a mechanic who indicated that he thought my vapor canister had gone bad allowing fuel to get in there and then be sent to the motor, flooding it out. When the truck dies it's hard to restart.
The truck NEVER has an issue unless we fill it up to full.
A couple questions:
1) Does this seem right?
2) Where is this vapor canister located on the 2004 dodge rams?
Thanks very much for the help!
