3rd for some strange reason when i bought the car its very hard to fill up with gas it just has to be filled up at an extremely low rate something with fill tube maybe? i know there was a broken plug for some type of cannister in the rear of my car it was throwing a check engine light i fixed the cable but it still wont fill up? any ideas on this one.... i cannot seem to find a solution
