You need to have it scanned to find out why the check engine is on first thing. Local parts stores normally will do this free of charge.

I have a toyota corolla 2003 and recently went for an emissions test and passed. The day after my emission test, the engine light went on. I tried to unscrew and rescrew the gas tank cap, but it didn't...


After tightening the gas cap, you will have to drive the car a few 'cycles' before the light goes off. If that doesn't work, have the trouble codes read to find out exactly what is wrong and causing the light to illuminate.

Stalling while at full stop then hitting the gas I foolishly forgot to put the oil cap back on my engine when I got home the engine was a mess, I waited over two weeks for the weather to warm up before...


I would check for water in the spark plug tubes and for water under the distributor cap. It will only take a couple of minutes to dry either one out.

Why check engine light come on mostly after refuiling after a long drive ?


Because your vehicle is a 2008 I feel it shouldn't be anything to pressing but still take some precautions.

What alot of people don't know is sometimes if the gas cap is not put on tight enough a little air might get in or your gas pump might have to work a little harder because it can't get full vacuum pressure with the cap slightly open. these are not major issues.

these are reasons why your check engine light comes on. It happened to my 2005 Buick Rendezvou We had the check engine light on for a week. The car never shuttered, stalled, delayed starts it ran perfectly fine. I took it in to check engine light their computer showed that it was the EVAP system which is the heating and cooling system I would have to get it checked for leaks or do a static check for leaks.

This didn't look good but then one day I had done some work for a friend told him of my problem he told me it could be my gas cap. The next day I asked my wife if the gas cap was working on vehicle it actually was broke I replaced gas cap and the check engine light came off.

Now with this story (which is true) don't assume every problem could be this. But if you are not noticing any stalls, delayed starts, shuttering anything out of the ordinary check the cap at times to make sure it is closed.

If you keep on having light on and replaced cap or made sure was securely on then take and get it checked out.

Check Engine Service light on


Without knowing anymore about your driving habits or how long it's been since a fill up, the first thing that comes to mind would be the gas cap. It sounds like you (or whomever filled you up) may not have locked the gas cap properly. This will cause a difference in pressure and will essentially throw a code.

Check engine light stays on


Make sure the gas cap is there and is fully tightened (it will click), a loss or missing cap will turn the check eng light on.

make sure you have antifreeze /water in it.this is caused by an air lock, remove the expansion cap when cold ,fill up to the top,run the engine with out the cap /1500rpms turn the heater on to hot ,and you will feel the air change to hot in 30 ./50 seconds.the water will drop quickly so if you could have somebody to top it up ready .then replace the cap,
