Question about 2006 Saab 9-7X

1 Answer

Gas cap broken

It is one of those types that can only tighten so far and you have to push it in to open. I broke it when I was going to fill up, but it might have been frozen. I ended up breaking the upper part of the cap, leaving the lower part still intact.

If it still closes all the way, keep using it. the upper part just is to prevent overtightening by ratcheting when it's tight. Replace with a new one if you must, or a locking gas cap.

Every time I fill up my 2001 Hyundai Elantra at every station I've been to the pump will constantly cut off during fill-up. I've tried pulling the nozzle further out of the gas tank and pushed it in as far...


When a gas pump does this it is because there is alot of pressure in the gas tank. This is a good thing for you because it means all your seals in the fule system are working good.Next time you fill up open you fule cap and let the car vent for a little bit then try to fill.

Check engine light came on after filling the car with gas, after going from shreveport la. to dallas tx.after tightening the gas cap it went off what should I do?


A loose gas cap will cause the check engine light to come on as it is part of the evap system. Tightening the cap is the solution, which you did.

Everything is fine...now worries.

My 96 lincoln mark viii gas door will not release when i push the button to open it. I have to have 2 people to go to the gas station, one to push button one to push on gas tank door to open it.


There is A Spring or Spring type Mechanism At the Door that POPS the Door Open Once the Button has been Pushed . And when you Close the Door This Same SPRING ACTION Sorta Fights Against your Closing it. Well it Sounds to me as if this Spring Action is Not Working Properly,
Take a CLOSE Look at this and Be sure This is Working Properly, My References Do NOT Go into DETAIL on this so its Kinda a Common Sense Approach to it.
