There are many issues that can cause the light to be illuminated that do not affect engine performance such as canister vent valve/solenoid, leaking vapor hoses, fuel cap with bad seal or check valve and so on. You will need to retrieve the code(s) in order to know where to begin. You can go to autozone to have them do it, or take it to a repair facility and have them do a diagnostic check. The latter is a better choice. Once you have the code you can begin a diagnostic check of the affected system.

Car is running fine, just had a few days of cold weather and now my check engine light is on troubleshooting code p1132 and p1152 are showing. Meaning?

Don't know the codes, but check to make sure your gas cap is on tight. Sometimes in our rush to get back inside the warm car we don't make sure the cap is tight and it can cause the CEL to come on. Sounds simple but happens all the time.

My check engine light is on but my car seems to be running just fine. i checked my gas cap and it is on correctly.

For check engine lights (CELs) please head to your nearest AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts. They will have a diagnostic tool that can read the CEL and pull the code. You can then look the code up and figure out what is causing the CEL. Once this is fixed the CEL should no longer come on.

Hope this helps.

My check engine light comes on? What could it be? It stays on steady. Could it be a faulty gas cap. The car runs fine.

a faulty gas cap could cause an engine code to come on with-out and engine problems if you have to do emission tests or smog tests where you live the one thing there to check it that the gas cap is operating properly. but it could also be a sensor when the engine light comes on the car operates in what is called open loop mode the engine runs in preset peramiters set in the ECM it also runs in this mode til the vehicle is at operating temperator so even if the vehicle seems to be running ok the engine light isn't something that sould go unchecked

Can you tell me for what reasons the 'check engine' light will com on?

Generally something mechanical is wrong with the engine. Could be minor or major.

I added a can of sea foam in my gas tank fill it up with gas now cel comes on car hesitates when starting to move but then runs fine

Go to an auto parts store and ask them to read the code for you. Is the gas cap tight? Seafoam should not cause any problems. Drive it for a while it may get better.

'07 Tahoe; check engine light on steady. Just came

Have a dealer or garage check your Oxygen (O2) sensor. As a quick fix, try disconnecting and reconnecting your car battery. Sometimes this will reset the check engine light.Good Luck!
