Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks

Try the simple step first, it's usually the right one.

Engine light comes on: and not time for oil change, check the gas cap. The newer cars don't like the smallest amount of air in the tank. Easy fix. It's a code thrown, call dealership to walk you thru the steps.

How can I find out how to fix my check engine light, can it be related to the gas cap in any way?

It absolutely could be the gas cap. I would stop and get the code read for free at advance auto or autozone. If it is a newer 2003 -2006 Ram, they are known for popping engine light when the engine oil is getting old or if the wrong type of oil was put in.

What is needed for a tune up?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.

Engine light

There are a couple simple options. The first thing I would do is check ur gas tank cap and possibly change it out that is a very common problem for newer cars that the gas tank pressuse isnt right because of a gas cap, I would replace it and see if it make the light stay off, very easy and cheep.
2. It could b an O2 censor cars usually have at least 2 of them, take your car to a auto part store and see if they will hook their computer up to it and see what the code is for the light to b on, that will tell u if its an O2 censor
