You have to check for OBD Codes
& diagnose them, to know that

After 35 years of those vehicle systems,
seems no one knows a thing about vehicles
or doesn't care to

Why ask ! So we can guess at the unknown,
without the vehicle to test ?

It is all on the internet & has been for decades
Google the questions

Put in any question,any vehicle code,any part
& do some studying

What about your owners manual,ever read it

I have a 2001 hyundai sonata, I have a light that is coming on, in the manual it says gas, exhaust light, what is that?

emmission light.
there is a small vapour leak in the fuel sytem of your car.
this doesn`t mean your leaking liquid gas -only a small amount of fuel vapours.
the emmission system of today`s vehicle are very sensitive, and when the car`s computer monitors this, it will display this information thru your dash warning light.
yor car is still safe to drive, but eventually you will have to fix this problem in order to pass a drive -clean -emmission test. See your service repair shop for further diagnostics..

It is an Amber check engine lite that comes and it tells you there is something wrong in the computer system or an emmission control device. Take to local shop and have checked. If it is flashing do not drive "TOW" only

Service light comes after after a few minutes car runs fine dont know what could cause it 2000 cavalier, dont notice anything different when driving the car

Your vehicles computer has numerous inputs and outputs while some are more critical than others.This means an emmission device such as canister vent could be showing error electronically and could wind up being nothing more than a lose or missing gas cap.You are faced with pulling codes from your computer with a compatible scanner and then determining the severity of the code,but if no symtoms persist,it probably is not a critical component malfunction and something like an emmision system error.
