My 2002 DTS just developed a problem. If I fill the gas tank completely, I experience a form of vapor-lock. The car will start and idle, but if I put it in gear and touch the throttle, it stalls. This goes on for about 20 minutes or so, then it is fine. Any suggestions? Thanks.:rant2:

Try leaving the cap loose after a fill up and see what happens. Tighten it after testing of course.

Yep, I'd do what zonie said. Also check for codes and let us know what's in there.
