Have the codes checked at an Autozone or Chevker auto if you have one around you, there should be a code set in the computer memory that will point you in the right direction. If it still show a code for the gas cap you may need a new one.

First, you need to go to a local parts store and find out what the code means. If it shows a small leak, the gas cap probably needs replaced. Gas caps need replaced more often now that computers register fuel emissions.

You might need the evap system check with a evap tester to make sure there isn't any leaks in the system. Don

Why would my OBD or malfunction indicator light come on and stay on?


Check engine light comes on with faulty oxygen sensor, loose gas cap or faulty gas cap. sometimes with low octane fuel as well. fill up with high octane fuel, tighten down the cap and see if it helps.

Why did the check engine light come on


The check engine light usually comes on due to emissions issues. I'd bet that tank of gas was the culprit. Run it nearly empty and then fill up again. If it doesn't go out in a few days take it to an auto parts store and have them read the code. At that point my guess would be O2 sensors.

I have a dodge ram 1500 year of module is 2002 and the check engine light keeps comming on what could this mean?


I had the same problem with this truck as well. If the gas cap is loose it can cause the check engine light to turn on. Try tightening the cap well each time you fill up. If this does not help you may want to try replacing the gas cap. Hope this was helpful.

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 light came on after filling the car with gas, after going from shreveport la. to dallas tx.after tightening the gas cap it went off what should I do?


A loose gas cap will cause the check engine light to come on as it is part of the evap system. Tightening the cap is the solution, which you did.

Everything is fine...now worries.
