Boiling The Gas

Ok, ok, it's not exactly boiling the gas. But it sure sounds like it!

After running my truck (97 NAS D90) for a while, shutting it down for a few minutes, and then firing it back up, it will start and then die like it's starved for fuel. Immediately followed by sounds coming from the gas tank. It sounds like an air hose being opened up in the tank with lots of bubbles. It will do this with very little gas left or a full tank.

After a minute or two I can usually get it started.

This is a new one on me so any ideas are appreciated.

Side Note (in case this matters): Fuel pump was replaced 6 months ago. Hoses replaced with custom braided stainless lines.

It sure sounds like a vapor problem...the kind you would expect in warmer weather. I would start with the hoses that were replaced. Was the evaporator canister replaced?

No Sir.

It's been running fine for the last few months - even through some record heat here in Colorado (over the summer). That said, it was pretty warm today.

I bet the cap is not venting properly. Do you get a whoosh sound when removing it after driving for a while?

And if you remove the fuel cap after the first drive do you get the same sound?
