Once you tighten the gas cap the engine light will reset itself after it has gone threw the necessary drive cycles, but only if the problem has been fixed. So yes if the check engine light came on for the reason of a loose gas cap, once you tighten it it will go off on its own.

Did the garage check the gas cap during the emission test? 90% of the time an evap leak turns out to be a bad gas cap. Or if someone had gas cap off while engine was running (pumping gas). Or if gas cap was not tightened all the way while driving. If this is the case, code saying evap leak, will clear after drive cycle self tests are done. Usually after 50 miles or more.(if the leak is solved)

I own a 04 silverado 5.3L ext cab 4wd. Engine lite on, tighten gas cap displays (3rd new gas cap) and just started to have a problem adding gas. the pump shuts off every few seconds and sometimes gas...


The problem pump gas is a common problem with the gas pump it self try turning the handle slightly to either side this may allow gas to flow better. The second problem the service engine soon light comes on for many different reasons not just the gas cap. auto zone usually will scan your computer for free and tell you what the diagnostic trouble codes are. find out and let me know and we can go from there.

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!

Gas Cap Error with Check Engine light


By "Replace the gas cap", do you mean put it back on, or buy another one? If you fuel these trucks with the engine running, or don't tighten the gas cap, the light will come on. It will also come on when the seal in your gas cap goes bad. I have had to replace the gas cap on my jeep and dodge already. It fixed the problem both times.
