There are over 100 things (and yes the gas cap is one) that will turn on a CEL, run a trouble code test, Kragen and Auto Zone do it for free as well as other chain stores like them.

    CEL=Check (C) Engine (E) Light (L)

    without the trouble codes we are flying blind on knowing what the issue is, it is the exception not the rule that when the CEL is on that the driver feels anything different, many codes have nothing to do with the engine running, the gas cap being loose is a good example.

the check engine light comes on to tell you there is a problem with something the computer controls or receives info from. Have the computer scanned for codes. Once you have those codes post them here and I'll be happy to help you further.

Hi,


The check engine light comes on mostly when you have bad gas tank cup,or you don't tight enough the gasoline.Go to any auto-zone and request the obd scanner,at no charge just leave your driver license or credit card,connect the scanner follow the instructions.They will check up and the check engine light will come off in the next 3 to 5 days.


Thank you !!

Kia Rio Check Engine Light


check the fuel line hose near the fuel regulator for wear as they tend to leak or corrode causing a gas smell inside the car. My 2000 Kia Sportage just had the same problem with the gas smell inside the car.
