2006 kia rio

I picked up my kia from a body shop that replaced doors and fenders after about 6 blocks car started lurching and missing ,I thought maybe low on gas ,limped to a station and when I opened gas cover I discovered the gas cap wrapped in plastic and taped ,I tore that off and put in gas without trying to start it up and then it started right up no problem any more ,I believe the cap is a vented cap could that have been the problem?

  1. I could see the problem being that it was low on gas. The gas cap is a sealed cap and if it leaked at all, the check engine light would come on and tell you there was an EVAP system leak. So, probably just low on gas and the plastic and tape was just over looked and not removed after painting.
