The fuel tank got to sounding like someone was tapping a drum

Customer Question

the fuel tank got to sounding like someone was tapping a drum ever so often, when I would take the fuel cap it would have a pretty good vacuum going there. I put a new aftermarket fuel cap on and the thumping drum sound stopped but these vacuum when you take the fuel cap off got worse.now the service engine light is onand I had a scan done sad said an emissions code and clogged up tank vent. the car will die sometimes when the gas cap is taking off while it is running.. and it always has a terrible vacuum when you take the cap off . we only got the car and January and are trying to work the bugs out of it
