The symptom you are experiencing points towards a stuck open evap purge valve or a plugged evap canister.

Yes, need to remove both the hoses connected and check if stuck open.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I shall check that out might be plugged up cause I live on the dempster highway gravel road
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
if it's stuck open it's no good ?
Dodge Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 11 months ago

IF stuck open, fuel vapors will get in the intake and give hard to start condition.

Ok but yuh I got a air lock hard time fuelling my truck up
Dodge Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

There is a procedure to check the blockage in the system.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

1. Remove the hose from the tank to the charcoal canister and remove the recirculation tube from the filler neck to the top of the tank. Try to fill the system, if the tank will still not accept fuel, replace the whole tank assembly.

2. If the tank does accept fuel, then reinstall the recirculation tube and recheck. If it does not take fuel, then the recirculation tube is plugged or restricted.

3. If the recirculation tube makes no difference, then the evaporative system needs to be checked for a restriction. Start by removing the vent coming off of the Evaporative System Monitor (ESM) Switch assembly. Check each line or look for a plugged canister.

If there is no air passing through, need to supply 12 volts at the connector to make sure its not stuck closed.
