I have a 03 Baja that has a hesitation for about 5 to 10 miles after I fill up with gas. It goes away completely after 5 or 10 miles. Tells me it's not plugs, plug wires, bad gas, clogged fuel filter or water. Any suggestions.

Do you "top-off" the tank after the first click?

If you do, you could be introducing gas into the vapor recycling tube that leads to the evaporator canister.

Go ahead and change the fuel filter if you have not done so already.

I don't top off the tank. Learned not to do that shortly after buying my Baja. Nothing like soaking shoes with gas.

Any other suggestions.

Has the fuel filter ever been replaced?? One of the simplest tune-up items you can do.

And since starting up the car after is filling up is usually a hot start... you might have a problem with your coolant temp. sensor.
