SOURCE: 03 honda Odyssey gas smell and check engine light

Did the mechanic check for engine codes with a scan tool? If not, u can have it done at most parts stores for free. Write down any codes they get off the honda's computer, ask them what to do to correct any trouble codes they find, and if it has anything to do w/ the gas smell. Have u checked under the car and in the engine compartment for evidence of gas leaks? Keep in mind that gas evaporates rather quickly, so it can be difficult to spot a leak. Put a large piece of cardboard under the car, and check it for wet spots or stains after parking. Let me know how u make out and if u need further help.

SOURCE: check engine light on, gas cap tight

Because this is a 1996, it's got a standard OBD-II computer. Take it to any auto parts store and ask them to read the trouble code for you -- every major parts store (Pep Boys/Autozone/Checker/etc) will do it for free.

Your OBD connector is behind the ashtray in the center console -- pull the ashtray out, then push down on the metal part at the top to release it and pull it the rest of the way out of the console.

If you generally do your own work, you might jump on eBay and look for an OBD-II code reader. I got mine for $25 including shipping. It's nothing fancy, but it's saved me a few trips to the parts store place.

SOURCE: check engine light on. I checked gas cap and it

If this cap was in fact the cause of the problem the car is designed to reset the CEL when a certain number of ignition cycles has been met without the original problem recurring. If it does not reset itself on its own then you'll need to look at the EVAP system for any leaks or bad parts. Common causes of that code are a bad EVAP solenoid, bad fiel cap seal, dry/rotted hoses, poor hose connections.

Check Gas Cap alarm comes on and engine light is on

You gas cap is not on tight enough to seal causing the Check Engine Light to come on. When you tighten your gas cap you need to tighten it until it clicks at least 5 times, if it is tight than the seal on the gas cap may be bad. Replace with a OEM GM gas cap or a quality replacement that meets OEM specs.

My engine light and gas cap lights are on, what do I need to do ?

Make sure the gas cap is on tight.
Disconnect the battery for a couple mins, to turn off check light.
If it comes back,you need to check for codes,by hooking a code reader or scanner under the dash.
Most likely a bad gas cap. Do not replace without an Emissions Code for it
