Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.
I doubt the EVAP line is the blame. Can you disconnect this fitting and duct tape over both ends to close it off. Does it start better now?
Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.
Where the clip is broken, can you not pull that fitting apart?
Can you pull it apart and cover both ends with tape and test?
I know the hose your referring to. I just want you to seal it with tape or cap it off so it can not leak allowing flow in or out and see if it starts easier.
