One day while driving I stopped at the gas station,not thinking I got out and opened the gas cap with the car running.I heard the usual hissing sound then the car seemed to lose power and shut off,when I tried to start it back it wouldn't start,even after I countless times it would not,a few times it did but wouldn't stay running when I pressed the gas pedal.So after about 15 minutes I disconnected the battery cables and left them off for about five minutes,reconnected them and bam it started up.Any ideas what may have caused this?

My caprice makes that hissing sound when I open the cap, but I never had it die on me. This is just a shot in the dark, but check your fuel pressure, maybe having built up pressure in the tank was helping a failing fuel pump put out enough to keep the car going. Good luck!
