Subaru Impreza surging on acceleration after driving a while

Asked by warnkejt Oct 28, 2019 at 05:06 PM about the 2002 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Subaru Impreza outback. I
recently replaced my evap storage canister
because I wasn’t able to fill up my gas tank
without the pump shutting off. After replacing
the canister I fixed that problem but now my
car is surging when I accelerate, it doesn't
start surging until after about 20min of
driving. I was going up a hill and I had to stay
in 1st gear to make it. I then replaced the
evap system solenoid, I though it worked
because I was able to drive fine for a bit but
the it started surging  again. I’m not sure if it’s
the purge valve or something completely
different. Any ideas?
