Hello, it sounds like you are getting a vapor lock. If your gas tank isn't venting properly then the vehicle can vapor lock. This is usually caused by a carbon canister not working very well.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

I'm not sure if you read everything. In my statement above I have no idea what you have already tried but may also take some back and forth discussions to correct your concern.
