The computer will eventually make the light go off...It may take up to 10 days or so...But if you dont have any new problem with the vehicle then the computer just hasent reset the light yet....It will reset it unless you have another problem..

First, you need to determine WHY the check engine light is on. It COULD be a faulty gas cap and if it is, be sure to replace with one EXACTLY like the one from the factory otherwise your check engine light will come on again.
Go to AutoZone (or other auto parts store) and ask to 'borrow' their code analyzer.
More details would be appreciated.

When ever i put gas into my 1995 Lexus Ls 400 my engine light come on when i took it to get it checked out i was told there was air somewhere not exactly where...... please help

Newer cars can have the check engine light come on if the cap isn't on right or sealed properly. Start by getting a new gas cap. NAPA or most other parts stores would be able to get you exactly what you need.

I have a 2007 Pontiac Torrent. The gas cap will no longer stay tight. I keep getting the little engine display on my dash. Is this a regular thing for this vehicle. I have stopped, removed the gas cap,...

Step number one is to break down and buy a new gas cap. Step number two is to read the owner's manual about how to screw in the gas cap. If the light stays on, have a dealer put an analyzer on it to determine the fault. It is only 3 years old and most likely still under warranty.

If I left my gas cap loose and service engine soon light come on, how do I make it turn off?

Getting a new gas cap and putting it on comes to mind. If that does not work, take it to a dealer or shop with a real analyzer and have them reset it for you.

2006 Saturn Relay Check Engine Light

PO455 is a large evaporative fuel leak. A bad fuel cap is ONE of the things that COULD be the problem. Fuel system cleaning only lightened your wallet. Reading your post is confusing. Did all this start AFTER the Valvoline Wallet Flushing? If so , they left something loose or disconnected. I would find a qualified repair shop to fix the problem, and if it has anything to do with what Valvoline did, make them pay the bill.

2005 chevy cobalt check engine light

make sure the gas cap is on tight. vapor recovery system depends on the closure of the gas cap. if that did not solve your problem, I would suggest to get a new gas cap first, before going to the dealer or any repair shop for a turn-up.
