Question about 2002 Honda Accord

Check Engine Light

My 2002 Honda Accord LX's "check engine" light comes on the day after I get gas. It just recently started doing this. Originally, I thought that I was not putting my gas cap on good, but I have been careful to put it on tightly. The light has come on three different occassions. What could this be? Do I need to take the car in to have it worked on?

Stop by an autozone and let them check it for you , they will scan it , and tell you what code(s) you have and the meaning , since you say its the day after a fill up it sounds like an evap leak , the car will run self diagnostic tests on itself and the evap tests would have criteria to meet before taking the test , one would be how much gas in the tank to take the test , then it won't run self test again till criteria is met again .

2000 honda accord ex with code p0505


For a 2000 Honda Accord LX, the check engine code P1456 simply means that your gas cap is off or isn't tight enough. It wont go off immediately. It make take up to a weak for the check engine light to turn off once the gas cap is tightened enough.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Check engine light is on, on my 2002 honda accord ex v6


Could be as simple as a loose gas cap or cap seal or a bad o2 sensor. A falty cat. converter will also cause the check engine light to come on. Either way, you need to go either to a dealer or some auto parts stores will plug in the dioegnostic sensor and can tell what is wrong. your gas milage will suffer until you get this fixed. Your engine computer uses the inputs from your o2 sensers to adjust the fuel air mixture of the engine for optimum engine performance.
