2006 Chevy Aveo Check Engine Light coming on and off

The engine light came on and stayed on. I replaced the gas cap and it went off about a week later. Stayed off for a few days, and then came back on again and is still on. Manual says it could be emissions. I've kept the car in great shape and changed oil/filter every 3,000 miles. I'm kind of surprised I'm getting this warning light. Any ideas or suggestions?

    I replaced gas cap& light still on? If this is problem could it take recycling for light to go off or could it be something else? Car just turned over 50,000 miles?

It needs a code scanner hooked up to it,to tell you why the light is on and the cause. If there is an autozone near you take it there or
call different auto part stores to find out if they do that.Without getting the code, it's just guessing what the problem is.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo Check engine light comes on when under 3/4 tank fill it back up and the check engine light shuts off. What could be the problem?


I would first suspect that the gas cap is losing its seal, which happens to take about 1/4 tank of driving perhaps. The fuel tank, like most cars today, works on a closed system with a return and the air above the fuel needs to remain slightly pressurized.

The gas cap was a common problem on the 04 Aveo's; in fact the dealers were fixing them for free then. Tightenning the cap wont imediately turn of the light however because the computer needs to see the engine go through several drive cycle conditions before clearing.

Inpect the cap, the seal and the fuel neck. Perhaps cleaning the cap and seal area if necessary. Look for cracks in the fuel neck. If all looks good and this doesnt work try a new cap either aftermarket or from the dealer.

Why si the check engine light on on my 2006 Chevy


Tighten your fuel cap 3 times to make sure its tightned. don't push it in when you tighten it. Use Fuel injection cleaner like once a month... You may have gotten bad gas. Don't use 100 percet gas. Use gas with ethenol... you get better gas mileage. I go through 3-4 tanks a week. I use the 87 octane and I put Berrymans Fuel injection cleaner in once a week. I don't know about your hesitations though I drive a 5 speed

Check Engine light staying on in Chevy Aveo. Yes


Many things can cause this problem...unfortunately the only proven way to remidy this situation is to have your car scanned by a reputable mechanic with a diagonstic machine $40-$80. This will tell what exactly is causing the check engine light to come on, in the long run its much cheaper replacing whats wrong than trying to replace things that arnt wrong.

Slow water leak from the radiator overflow tank on my 2006 Chevy Aveo. Also check engine light comes on and off at will. It can be on for several days in a row and then off for the same.


Is there an obvious hole in the tank? A replacement tank should be readily available and should be easy to replace. If there is a small hole, you might try patching it with epoxy glue.

Next time the check engine light is on, take the car by an auto parts store and ask them to read the OBD II code(s). This is free at most of these stores.

My check engine trac off light came on


This happened to me as well, just a few weeks after buying our 1999 ES300. Took it into Lexus for regular maintenance and to check this out. Apparently, if you don't replace the gas cap correctly and tight enough this can cause the 'trac off' light to come one. It will go off a little while after the cap has been replaced correctly. This also happened with my 2006 Murano, 'check engine soon' message.

Just bought a 2006 chevy trailblazer. the engine light kees coming on. checked and replaced 2nd cylander coil. drove 150 miles engine light came ack on


I suppose the engine code said that cylinder was not firing or faulty? I would immediately get a compression check done on the engine. It is relatively painless. My burnt valves (compression 10psi vs 150psi) could not be diagnosed any other way. Does this help?

Check engine light


Hey, Lisa!
I had a problem with my 2004 Chevy Cavalier doing this - Try taking it to Autozone for a free diagnostics. I did this and replced the gas cap. The seal was bad and when I replaced the cap, the check engine light went out after a little bit.

Engine light


I doubt the gas cap is related to the light, though hopefully you can get a replacement for it because it can be dangerous. As for the check engine light I'm not sure what it could be. Is the car running making noises, does it stall?? If there are no obvious symptoms, you might need to take it to a mechanic so they can read the error message from the cars computer and determine where th eproblem is.
