jeep stops running while driving then starts up later after removing gas cap

Asked by Mar 05, 2017 at 02:19 PM about the 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


EVAP system is not working, do you have any check engine lights on? There is a purge solenoid and a vent solenoid that can go bad, the vent solenoid relieves pressure buildup in tank so that sounds like what is bad with yours. I'm guessing when you remove it you can hear pressure equalizing.
