Engine light on, took to dealer they did a smoke test found out gas cap po442. know 3wks later back on check cap loose again .need a new cap or is it something else. denice

You said nothing about model, make, or year of vehicle, but on most vehicles, you have to turn the gas cap tightly until it clicks a couple of times when putting it on. If you only turn it (lightly) until it stops moving, it can work itself loose. If you are turning it until it clicks and it comes loose, you should replace the gas cap.

I have a 2005 Jeep liberty and I recently lost my gas cap(4 days ago). My check engine light came on and I am wondering if it is due to the gas cap being lost. Going to buy a new one today.

Yes...the cap needs to be on there or the purge system will register a leak. The light may not go out right away but usually will after about thirty miles of driving. (computer needs to go through a complete self test cycle).

Lost gas cap and check engine light came on. got new gas cap but light won't go off.

Sometimes for this light to turn off you will need to reset the computer system that logged the code. Advance Auto and Auto Zone have a free service that will do this for you, they will also be able to tell you if the check engine light has logged a code for some other then the gas cap. Just go into Advance Auto or Auto Zone and say "Could you reset my check engine light for me?" they will grab their scanner tool and ask you to lead them to your vehicle, they will need to turn your car to the ON position but not start it.

p0440 is an evaporitive emission system system large leak detected generally on an 02 gm vehicle it is very common that the vent solenoid located by the fuel tank if you replace it the light will take a few days to clear its self. the vehicle runs tests on all sensors and systems and the test has to pass or fail a number of times before the pcm will turn on or turn off a check engine light.

Idles nice but when i go to drive it sputters and chugs and serges what is going on? also having difficulty getting it to start have to turn switch back and forth until it starts. Also I lost gas cap does...

try replacing the gas cap first and see if it helps any, on some vehicles, the fuel pump builds pressure inside the tank so it has the correct amount of pressure to send the gas to the engine. if the cap is missing, it can't build pressure.

Check engine light comes on

The infamous 'Check Engine' light turns on for any of several reasons. Some are incredibly simple to fix and should be checked before you spend anything going to a dealer or mechanic. Most newer vehicles have a gas tank pressure sensing monitor which will give an inaccurate error and turn on the light if your gas cap is not replaced properly. Unscrew the gas cap completely and replace, making sure to tighten it securely. Start the car and check the light again.
Other things to check yourself are the fluid levels making sure that filler caps are properly secured.
If after trying all the DIY fixes the light remains on you'll need to take it a mechanic. With any luck, one of the DIY fixes will work and save you $$$

Check Engine light on 1998 BMW Z3 roadster

yes the light is because of the gas cap being gone (sets code in evaporative emissions system), replace the gas cap, disconnect the battery for five minutes and that will turn of/reset the light, make sure u have the radio code before u do this, if u don't u will have no radio after the battery is disconnected..

1994 Chevy Silverado Gas Cap Unavailable?

Autozone or oreily just any gas cap just about will do. To force open use a flat head screw driver, hammer and pliers. Drive the FLAT tip screw driver into the gas cap and use the pliers to turn. These vehicles did not come factory with locking gas cap so some one has replaced it once before. Don't worry the worst you can do is ruin the gas cap which is no good to you any way.
