Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

06 chevy impala v6 3.9 liter engine. Check engine

06 chevy impala v6 3.9 liter engine. Check engine light comes on with "check gas cap" indicator. Gas cap has been replaced since. Only way to have engine light off is to disconnect battery & reconnect. This solution only lasts a few days. Diagnostic @ Autozone shows gas cap needs replaced. I did that. Any idea what the problem is?

There is a large evaporative leak. keep away form ottozoo, they dont have the brain power to actually diagnose a light bulb., their job is to sell parts., if they sell you the wrong parts tough.Take it to a qualified repair shop that does a lot of GM work or the dealer.

I just bought a 2012 Chevy Impala. The gas cap never tightens. Is this normal?


Some gas caps have a built in slip preventing over tightening, so no engine light, no worry. The cap will feel like a ratchet effect when you tighten, so it slips at point it is sealed so you don't crush rubber seal. Not to worry as I see it.

Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

2006 Chevy Impala, engine light is blinking and seems like no gas is getting to the engine and stalls when I'm not stepping on the gas


any time the check engine light is flashing the engine is miss firing, most likly cause is spark plug wires or colis, but also check the wiring harness from the crankshaft sensor to the ignation module they have a bad problem with coming out of the wiring lume and geting melted on the rear exhust manafold...good luck

I have a chevy Impala and the check engine light is on does that mean the engine about to go


noooooo you probably have a bad sensor or as easy as a gas cap will trip the light

The dash panel on my car keeps telling me to tighten my gas cap,


Assuming you mean the gas cap being replaced, this can also be the result of a vacuum leak. Look around on the engine and see if there are any vacuum hoses related to the fuel system. If your engine has a plastic cover it is under that. Remove the cover. Most are held down by the oil fill tube which generally unscrews, sometimes reverse threaded.

Engine light came on on 06 chevy cobalt erased with scanner but there is again and again


THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON BECAUSE THE CAR RUNS A SYSTEM CHECK AND SOMETHING IS FAILING. UNTIL YOU ADDRESS THE PROBLEM IT WILL KEEP COMING BACK ON( HINT) REPLACE THE GAS CAP IT IS THE MOST COMMON CAUSE

On a 2006 chevy impala it tells you to tighten the gas cap ,then when you do, we shut the car off. Then check engine light comes on. Where is the sensor located.


There is no sensor for a loose gas cap. What is happening is that the evaporative emission system is sensing a "Large Leak". Usually code p0455. The computer sees this as the most probable cause is a loose gas cap depending on several factors it looks at. You would need to clear the code(s) and see if that was the problem. If the light comes back on, then you have a problem in the system that will not let it seal. Possible solenoid problem, leaking hose / line, etc.
