Thought that the PT Cruiser wanted 87 Octane fuel....Your extra expense outlay will hurt nothing but your wallet.
Fill it up again. Be sure the tank is FULL. Restore the gas cap and give the vehicle 2 or 3 days to restore the "check engine" light. Malfunction Cursor is not (normally) in Crysler's auto maintenance software!!
If you continue to get the display - take it to Autozone and they will do a diagnostic on it for free - and TELL YOU what is wrong.....

Brand and octain dont matter if your cap isnt on tight it will come on or if you have replaced the cap some times it will come on it will just take a few times of driving it for it to shut off some where around 300 to500 miles

07 pt cruiser gas cap light on

I would guess that if the cap is actually secure, then it needs a new seal ring on the cap, or a new cap with a good seal.

2005 PT Cruiser showing P0456 and P0522. Cranks but wont start.

The sensor that is most likely causeing the problem is the low oil pressure sensor. It is telling the cpu that you have a problem that unless you correct it, the motor will suffer serious damage from insufficient lubrication.Have the oil pressure checked with a manual gauge then replace the sensor unit if faulty.

Check engine light comes on periodically, it does'nt change the way it runs but I am always concerned that something may be wrong.

I just had this problem with my 2005 PT Cruiser. I took the car to my local repair shop (Chrysler has abandoned this area in Florida) and had it connected to a diagnostic computer. Guess what? Loose gas cap. Looking at the cap you can see the gasket is getting funny. Repair shop recommended buying a new gas cap.

2006 pt cruiser, check engine light came on. Shortly after, gas cap light. Replaced gas cap and reset. Today bith lights came on again.

are you fueling car with key "on"? That will cause light to come on. Disconnect battery for 1 hour and this will reset "keep alive memory" and clear codes from memory. Drive car for 10 miles so computer can relearn engine parameters. It may run rough during this period.

2005 pt cruiser check engine light came on put a diagnostic code tester on and it came up code po457 and po456 what would this mean?

P0457 is a loose gas cap, P0456 is a small evap system leak. The seal on your gas cap is probably worn. Replace the cap, clear the codes with either a diagnostic tester or by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and reconnecting it. It will take a few days for the code to come back if it isn't fixed, but that usually does the trick. I hope this helps.
