You may need to press down and twist the gas cap at the same time..similar to a "child safe" bottle of asprin or medicine. Usually you remove it counterclockwise

Then when you put gas cap back on press down and turn it clockwise to seall the vacuum in the gas tank.

Many newer cars have this gas cap feature

Service Engine soon light on on 93 Pont Bonneville. 1) disconnected battery for 5 minutes & light goes off 2) New Gas Cap and light gors off on 2nd occasion. Please advise what other steps can be...

A 1993 pontiac wouldnt know if the gas cap was on or off. You cant fix it untill you know why the light is on. You need the computer scanned and a trouble code to go further., plus what engine you have (8th VIN number)

I have an 85 Toyota pick up efi and I put a new fuel pump in and I cant put the gas cap on tight or it builds pressure and with it off it leaks gas out the overflow in the engine compartment?

Either the Gas Cap is shot or the tank vent is clogged. First thing i would recommend would be to try swapping the gas cap for one from another car (without the same problem).
The Gas Cap should be a vented style cap, but if it quits it can build up pressure inside the tank. If swapping the cap doesn't stop the pressure, than the vent is clogged, it's on top of the tank

After putting gas in my 02 eclipse it will not start. I put it on a scanner and the code was P0441. I cant find the purge valve. Someone please help.

P0441 : Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect
Purge Flow
In most cases, this refers to your gas cap not being tightened down or the cap seal not making enough contact to pressurize the tank and system.

How do u tell if one is bad will the car conk o ut while ar a stip and while driv I have a 2oo1 4 cylnd I had the code come yp 4 that and gas cap please help

OK, if pressure doesn't build up in the gas tank, a bad gas cap code can come up.
Replace the cap to see if that helps. But, if it still comes up with a code for the gas cap being loose or missing, then the filler neck or the gas tank or the evaporative hoses may be loose or leaking.

Good luck on this repair.

Cant fill gas!

why is the gauge saying no fuel or will it not go in. has it been juddering befor this happened was the filler cap hard to open. if any of the above let me know. if its not the gauge and the other things happened. my guess is the filler cap was not letting enough air into the tank. causing a vacume this crumples the tank and no fuel can go in the tank. it might not be as bad as all that. but this does happen. if you cannot get the filler cap off. need more info please.
