Have a light came on that says gas cap losse i but new on on and still says same thing what do i do


The error may be cause by a loss of pressure in the evaporative emissions control system. I don't have any service information on the 2005 LeSabre, but I suspect that a hose is leaking or loose between the gas tank and the charcoal cannister. Have your dealer or a good trustworthy mechanic follow the vapor recovery hose from the cannister to the tank.

Battery location 2000 buick lesabre


I have a 2001 Buick LeSabre Limited. Pull up on the rear seat cushion along the front edge. The battery is located under the rear seat. Be sure to connect the vent lines to the new battery. This keeps fumes out of the car, and keeps it from corroding the interior surfaces.

2001 hyundai accent, trouble filling gas tank


I have 2002 Hyundai Accent. When fueling, I had to trickle the fuel in to prevent the fuel dispenser from constantly shutting off. Even then I could only get about a quarter gallon at a time between fuel shutoffs. Would take 10-15 minutes to put in 10 gallons. Very frustrating. I found and fixed the problem today. There is a charcoal cannister that is part of the Evaporative Emissions control system. It is located inside the rear fender well on the driver side, behind the driver side rear tire. You cant miss it. Actually looks like a square plastic box and it has hoses coming out of it. I removed the entire charcoal cannister assembly in about 15 minutes. Follow carefully. First, remove the electrical connector to the purge control valve (this valve assemby is mounted to the side of the charoal cannister on a bracket). No big deal. Then disconnect the three hoses that come out from the cannister assembly on the one side that faces the rear tire. Two of these hoses are small diameter about 1/4" and one is larger at about 5/8 inch diameter. Then you remove the 3 bolts that hold the whole cannister to the car frame. Then the whole piece comes out. Once I got the cannister and purge control valve out of the car as a whole assy I found the problem. The larger of the 3 hoses you disconnected as well as the port it connects to on the cannister was packed with the small charcoal pellets and actually formed a solid plug inside that larger hose. I had to stick a screw driver through that hose to knock the plug out that those charcoal pellets had formed. It all makes sense now. When you fill the tank with gas, you also push out air and vapor from the gas tank that is being displaced by the rising fuel in the tank. That vapor is supposed to go through that larger hose to the charcoal cannister where the fumes are removed by the charcoal. If that hose is plugged, like mine was, then the vapor has nowhere to go as you fill the tank and it increases pressure within the tank it causes the fuel dispenser nozzle to shutoff because it keeps detecting a pressure increase within the tank. That's my theory. I don't have the Hyundai design prints to confirm it. I had to tilt the charcoal dispenser so that the pellets came out of that larger hose port on the cannister. Like I said, even the port itself was full of pellets. So I poured out enough to clear the pellets that were in the hose port. I cleaned out the hose. Put everything back and went to go fill with gas. I filled that tank at full bore with no problem. Have the dealer or your mechanic check the ports and the hoses off the cannister. If they are filled with charcoal pellets, that is the problem. That should cost less than some of the fixes I have been reading about here.

Codes PO 442, 449 and 455


Check all vacuum lines from the gas tank to the evaporative charcoal cannister by the gas tank and to the purge valve located at the engine. Check the electrical connector at the vent solenoid which should be located on the charcoal cannister and purge valve solenoid by the intake manifold.
