Ford Taurus 2002 gas cap? warning light

My son added gas to his Taurus using a gas can. He said the nozzle of the gas can got "stuck" and he had to pull pretty hard to get it to come out. Since then, there has been a warning light on his dash which looks like a it refer to the gas cap. Did he damage something and is it expensive to fix?

you will need to replace the fuel cap. The light doesnt tell you the cap is on or off. What itis doing is measuring the pressure in your tank. If it is not in a certain range then the light comes on.

the best thing to do at this point is to have the diagnostic trouble codes read that may be stored in the memory of the on board computer, it is called the OBD 2 (on board diagnostics generation two) electronic engine control system.

SOURCE: po443 code 2002 ford taurus

That code is for the Evaporative Emissions. It could be a bad Evaporative Emissions Canister Valve or just a bad vacuum line or my granddaughter's 1997 Ford Escort had that code and her gas cap was NOT on. Now when you figure out what one it is disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to reset the computer.

After I drove my Ford 2002 Taurus se I parked it and it wouldn't start my gas cap light came on then I waited a little bit then my car started what is wrong


Well the gas cap light means the gas cap may be loose. The actual condition for the light to come on is when the engine computer tests the fuel tank venting system for leaks. The no start problem could have been too much or too little pressure in the fuel tank which could also make the gas cap light come on.

When I get this code on my Ford Escape it is because who ever filled the gas tank last didn't lock the cap down properly. Have the gas cap tested and replace if it fails. This is a minor vacuum leak but because it is minor it is difficult to find as well. Check all your vacuum lines for damage or leaks.

i know that if the gas cap is loose then the check engine light will come on. as far as the fuel gauge going up and down the "float" you have in your tank could be getting stuck. This is a pain in the rear to change because you will have to drop the fuel tank and either replace the part connected (best bet) to it or make sure the passage is clear.
