Mein Auto: 1994 BMW 325i
Runs rough after fueling up

Hello all, I couldn't find this on any of the topics so I wanted to see if any of you have came across it. My 94 325i runs really rough and dies at idle immediately after full fueling. It started doing this after I over filled it last month. I figured that I got some fuel in the return vent line but I'm not sure. After I drive it for 20 min the roughness goes away and it runs fine.

Just thought someone might have a way to purge the lines. I have been going through the whole car trying to update the maintenance schedule. It has 170K miles so I replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump after it died.

Thanks for any help on this subject.

Put in some seafoam in the car and drive it hard. It should clear up the issue.
