Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The CE light has been on brand new vehicles before they are sold. It could be anything from your gas cap being loose, to a bad cat converter.
Most Advance Auto stores and Auto-zones will do a free scan. Just don't automatically buy what they say the scan says. write down the codes and research them. A "small evap leak detected", can be the aforementioned gas cap, or a break in the evap system. An O2 code can be a bad O2 sensor, ot an O2 sensor that see's too little oxygen in the exhaust because the system is running poorly. (even though it seems fine to you)
Bottom line , get it check, but don't worry too much. All the light is saying is there is something wrong with your pollution system.
One last note, if you vehicle is less than 8years old you still have a warranty on certain pollution items, so check it out before you pay someone to replace. The cat for one is covered for 8/80k.
Hope this helps.
