Customer Question

Hi my name is Carolyn & my 2007 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer is slowly taking gas. So I replaced the canister vent solenoid but the problem did not stop. The engine light went off for a few days but came back on. So I replaced the fuel cap and my fuel gauge kept going up to full when I was I was only at half full. Then when I took the cap off it made a sound like I had opened a bottle of soda. Can you please help me with my problem?
