in alot of vehicles the oxygen sensors go bad first in the emmission circuitry you can use a obd2 scanner to get code normally auto store will recover the code and practically tell you what it needs for free.
well you could stop at an autozone or advance and one of their folks can attach an analyzer to it and give you the error codes. that help is worth exactly what you pay for it but it is better than simply looking at a warning light and trying to guess what it means. or looking at a warning light and asking someone else to guess what it means.
The emission light came on because when you had the gas cap open the "EVAP system ran its test and thought it detected a leak in the system.The light will clear itself after it doesn't se the same problem after a set amount of drive cycles. make sure you keep your fuel cap on tight to prevent this in the future.
before you do anything, let the engine and exhaust line cool down first. disconnet the electrical connector to the sensor, spray some lubricating fluid like " WD 40 " to the thread of the sensor, allow for a few minute then use the right spanner to turn the sensor. here you go, the sensor is now removed. Installing a new sensor is just the reverse. Enjoy it.
its either time for tuneup if haven't done one meaning oil change,spark plugs air filter,check ur fluids make sure their topped off, and or make sure ur gas cap is on tight. 80% of time its gas cap not on tight...
I may want to get an OBD-2 code reader it does run scans on the emission sensors( fumes capture, evap, ehxaust recirculation....). there are too many things going on at once to really pinpoint the exact problem. I tried.
