FIXED without having to buy a new valve!

Removed the valve and spray a little bit of lithium grease to both end of the tube and then apply 12v to the valve to move the plunger back and forth a fews times so it get lubricated . Now the solenoid doesn’t get intermittently stuck anymore.

Make sure the resistance between the two pins on the valve is between 26-30 ohm. If you have 0 ohm it mean you have a blown valve and this will not fix it. You can tell if the valve is blown or not by applying 12 v.

This fixed cost me nothing except about 1 hour of my time fiddling around.

No more frequent pop up TIGHTEN FUEL CAP message!
