SOURCE: The check engine light stays

its easy too replace but you need too reset your cmputer first too see if the light stays out before you go and buy the egr valve
disconnect the pos side of the battery for 5 min that will reset the computer,if the light comes back on then get the egr valve then you will have too reset it again

Hello Michael.
While your fuel cap may still be an issue there are many other items that may be at fault. It's possible the fuel cap tightening is a coincidence and something else is causing the problem.
There are a few hundred possibilities that could turn on your MIL.
First thing that needs to be done is verify what the code is that turns on the light. If you are in the USA Autozone will give you a free scan to start you off. Then you can begin to home in on the problem.
Best of the festive season to you.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

Engine warning light stays on


Check your gas cap. Whenyou put in gas the motor is suppose to be off. If there's not a good seal on gas cap that will cause the check engine light to come on. The mechanic should have a code reader for you and tell you what the light means.

2005 Cobalt 2 new alternators plus new battery in 1 week battery light just came on


If you paid the dealer to diagnose the problem, I would take it back and tell them to test it again on their dime.
You may have a problem in the wiring or other component in the car that is not letting the alternator charge the battery.

Why does service engine soon with gas cap code keep coming on even after buying new gas cap?


Get gas cap from dealer as some vehicles are having issues with the after market caps. What is the actual code and what's the vehicle year, make and model?

My gas cap wasn't put on properly after my last fill. The check engine light came on, so of course I put the gas cap back on correctly but now the Check Engine Light is staying on. I only drive it in...


It may go out on its own, the next time the computer does a routine system check. If two or three runs around town over the next few days doesn't clear it, only a dealer or a good mechanic with the proper scanner can turn it off.

Check engine light on, did not reset after driving 500 plus miles and tightening gas cap, car was just in for 112K service 3 days before light came on, dealer said it would take a few days bc it is cold...


Well the check engine light should be off at the time they finished their on it . because all you do is erase the code and the light goes off. Good luck

05 explorer gas cap warning light


Your gas cap could be losing pressure, bad seals. Most of the time the light goes on cuz no one closes the gas cap all the way, by rotating it right till they hear 3 clicks.

A light still on after 3 clicks, go to autozone, by a new cheap gas cap - under $20
