WOULD A STUCK OPEN THERMOSTAT MAKE THE ENGINE ...
2000 Kia Sephia
Hi would a stuck open thermostat make the engine run rough, also could a clogged gas cap do the same?

The stuck open thermostat would not cause the problem but a faulty gas cap would as it involves the EVAP system.

The reason I suspect this to be atleast part of the issue is that it happens even more intensely after I get gas-I will have the cap checked by a mechanic(pressure gauge I suspect) or what?
Thanks for the response

Replace the thermostat as well if it is suspect, if stuck open the engine may run to cool and this will affect tune as the coolant temp sensor, fit a new cap and report back what the effect is.
