Exclamation Stalling issue 1998 SL600 V12

My 1998 SL600 has been stalling repeatedly in the last 6 weeks (12 times to be exact) Here are the usual situations, always occurs when car is braking, slowing down or comes to a stop.There is no advanced warning at all, it does not sputter or hesitate, the engine just cuts out completely. The car will not restart until you get out of the car, remove the gas cap and then replace it. It then restarts and runs fine until the next stall, which occurs soon.
If this helps a right upstream 02 sensor was replaced less than a week previously to this problem starting.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I think you will find the charcoal cannister in the EVAP system is blocked and will need to be replaced. But a quick cheap fix is to drill a tiny hole in the fuel cap.

As Eric mentions, but of course take the filler cap well away from the car, DO NOT DO IN SITU.

Electric drills even battery drills produce sparks from their brushes.

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.
