Question about Cars & Trucks

Service Engine Soon light came on a day after I didn't tighten my gas cap I noticed I had put in half a tank in my Nissan Armada 2006 needle didn't go up as quickly as it usually does. Then this light thing came on and I checked my gas cap and I had not tightened it after I got gas and that's why the needle didn't go up as quickly. So I got gas after tightening the gas cap and the needle went up quick like it had always done.. But the check soon light is still on? How long or how many times do you need to drive your car for this light to turn off?

The light service soon comes on to remind you that a service is due. Your dealer or service department can service the car and reset the light till next service.

Have AutoZone and had them run the diagnostic check. It could be a sensor. Removing the negative battery cable from your battery will reset the service engine soon lamp. Once I replaced the sensor, the service engine soon light was still on. I learned from the helpful clerk at AutoZone that if you remove the negative battery cable from the battery and leave it off for about 60 seconds that the computer resets the light. Once you put the battery cable back in place and run the car again,... if the problem hasn't been resolved,... the light will come back on.

Sorry to infirm u but some of these new cars when the engine light gies on the only way to make the light gies off is the use of scan tool u might have a diffent things to cause the light to on so im strongly suggesting a scan tool if theres no other fault in the system then ur good to go to erase it with the scanner if scaner couldnt take out the light then go to the xxcar manual they usually have the prosedure to delete or making the light goes off most nissan have it on the manual goodluck and happy thanks giving

SOURCE: Tighten gas cap and then

Doesn't completely sound like a fuel pump problem...sounds like a vacuum line problem .... check your pcv ...and vacuum lines and when was your fuel filter last changed and how many miles are on the car...your fuel pressure regulator solenoid needs to be dry on the vacuum side too...diaphram could be leaking but if you can't find an obvious problem I would definiately find a qualified mechanic to dive into it...do you have access to a scan tool to read the trouble codes?

06 mitsubishi galant service engine light comes on at half tank


the leak is in the evaporator system that purges fumes out of the tank. check for leaks in all systems that attach to tank. all it takes is a rotten rubber line with a crack in it.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4 cylinder - went to get gas (just a bit, did not fill up) on Christmas and soon afterward the 'service engine soon' light came on. Called the Nissan dealer


When last did you service the vehicle ?
did they use the proper fuel ?

Chances are the service time is near where you will need to do a basic service, Plug , plug wires, filters etc. And reset the counter.
the fuel ting is just a coincidence.

Nissan Sentra 2005 Service engine light, gas overflow


Start by getting the DTCs diagnostic trouble codes as they will point you in the right direction. You may have some blockage in the vent tube or the vent solenoid fail but really what good is guessing when you can simply get the trouble codes and have a starting point.

Service engine soon light came on. No noticable problems. took it to Advance Auto and their computer said it was a evap or vacuum problem


this can be caused by a loose gas cap or bad seal on your gas cap - check that first - hope that helps - have a nice day :O)

I just bought a nissan pathfinder 2006 3 days ago it was running out of gas so i stop to put some in and i didnt click it and now the service engine soon light came on i dont know what to do ?


Run your truck by Auto Zone have thim reset the light. Befor you start your truck click the gas cap 3 times. If the light returnes then it is most likely the gas cap ring went bad and will need to be replaced.

Service engine soon light


Sometimes if you leave your gas cap loose or you don't get it on right it can set this code. Check your gas cap and clear code with your scanner. If it comes back on you will need to take it into your dealer as it should be under warranty.
