Try replacing the fuel tank cap first, then it gets more complicated if the message doesn't go away.

Location for 2006 buick rainier EVAP purge solenoid


You should have an EVAP leak test done . It could be a leaking purge valve , you could need a new gas cap as well or it could be the fuel filler neck . or assorted hoses or the fuel tank pressure sensor . If the check engine light is lit there will be a code .
DTC P0442: Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) System Small Leak Detected or
DTC P0455: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Large Leak
DTC P0446: Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Vent System Performance
You have to jack up the vehicle , the purge valve is attached to the engine behind the A/C compressor .

My 1979 750 Honda sputters when I go over 70. Like I'm running out of gas. Even though I have a full tank.


If it feels like fuel starvation, then it probably is. Maybe a breather hole is blocked. I had a similar problem and discovered that if I placed the spare key in the fuel cap and rode it, when the problem arose opened the cap and the bike started behaving properly. I took the cap to pieces and cleared the breather hole.....problem solved..

Why is "check fuel cap" warning showing on my 2006 Pilot when the cap is secure?


Hi there:
If the gas cap wasn't on properly then the change in pressure would set off a sensor. Put the cap on right or replace it and if the check engine goes away after a few days that was your problem.



You replaced the cap and it will take quite a few driving cycles for the light to go off if that was the culprit. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and that might reset the light.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have owned a 2003 A6 quattro now for just a couple months. I just filled it up last night and this morning the check engine light came on and stayed on. I made sure the gas cap was securely fastened....


YES-especially with the larger amounts of ethanol being mixed into the newer fuels. Try some seafoam available at walmart and napa, follow directions on can. And use better grades of fuel.

Check engine light comes on after fueling 5 series BMW


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you tighten the gas cap. It may be a little loose that's why the engine light is on.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Why I am getting a message saying check fuel cap on my 2005 Honda Oddessy?


On many velicles the fuel cap is the cause of the check engine light coming on or in your case the check fuel light. The rubber around the cap becomes to woren out and fumes leak out. This sends a signal to the brain to let you no. If you go to a parts store and buy a new cap the light will go out and the problem will end.

Car wont start


It is the battery - you must not have the cables securely placed on the terminals. The same thing happened to me a few months ago.

FUEL CAP LIGHT ON


Hi:
The check fuel cap light is tripped when your cap has been loose or off, and the engine is running. Often you need to have the light reset by a code scanner. If you have checked the cap and it is secure, if you reset the code and it comes back, you possibly need a new gas cap.

Why does my emission light the light with the orange/yellow indicator still on my honda 2006 ex.should i be worried? I tightened up the fuel cap and it is still on. Just bought this car last month and it...


If the light does not go off soon, you need to have it checked by someone with an OBD II tester. Many auto parts stores will read (though not reset) the codes for you, to determine what the problem might be. Be careful not to jump to conclusions about what a code might mean, as you can spend a lot of money on parts you do not need. The codes give you clues as to what to check, they do not tell you precisely what is wrong. I hope this is helpful.
