Recently replaced my fuel vent selenoid and now the car will not start properly. Stalls several times before it finally runs properly.
Do you
have the same problem?

Your vent solenoid should have nothing to really do with drivablitly of the car. Sounds like it may be an idle air control valve.

If it has the electronic throttle, you would be right. Let look up and see what equipment this vehicle has. Where is the vent valve you replaced located on the vehicle?

Passenger side of the drive axle just in front of the gas tank next to the passenger rear tire. Replaced after I was showing a replace gas cap code.

Clean throttle plate on both sides and iac hole, then have evap system smoke tested for a leak it may be a minor leak. If it continues have it scanned for codes and check fuel pressure with a gauge.

Ok, I dont believe anything you did or replaced caused the issue. Some known reasons that these vehicles exhibit these symptoms is the fuel pressure rail sensor, MAF sensor, or crank sensor. I would bet that it is the fuel pressure rail sensor. Pull a couple of the plugs and see if they look wet from excessive fuel.
