2006 Saturn Relay Check Engine Light

2006 Saturn Relay, 59000+ milage, got "check engine" light. Took it to Valvoline quick service and got fuel system cleaning and oil change. Check engine light started flashing then went steady again. Mechs reset computer by disconnecting battery. that day after leaving got a "check gas cap" message. stopped car and removed and replaced gas cap. Got message again. Removed and replaced again. Next morning got check gas cap again and check engine like came back on. Changed gas cap to factory cap (had a locking cap on that I had recently put on). Gas cap message went away, check engine light did not. Took it back to valvoline and they couldn't read diagnostic error. Took to autozone who read error as "P0455". Please let me know what I should do next? Do I wait to see if changing the gas cap worked? If so, how long? If that wasn't it, what should I be asking a mechanic to look for?

    So you replaced the gas cap.? Do you still have the issue?
    I've got the same problem. I replaced the gas cap and it didn't fix the issue.
    Through some investigation I found out that there might be an issue with the charcoal canister.
    But I haven't been able to find it on the vehicle.
    Let me know if you've resolved this because I'm still looking for a resolution to the problem.

PO455 is a large evaporative fuel leak. A bad fuel cap is ONE of the things that COULD be the problem. Fuel system cleaning only lightened your wallet. Reading your post is confusing. Did all this start AFTER the Valvoline Wallet Flushing? If so , they left something loose or disconnected. I would find a qualified repair shop to fix the problem, and if it has anything to do with what Valvoline did, make them pay the bill.

2006 Aveo has low fuel economy. Changed out thermostat because it was not keeping temp at acceleration. Now the temp is stable, but still seems low at 180 F and still have bad gas mileage. No check engine...


Many things can contribute to low fuel economy, tire pressure, driving style, milage, and state of the servicing.
What sort of milage does the car have?
Has it had a tune up recently?
Air filter condition?
Fuel filter condition?
Transmission service if milage dictates?

2006 Saturn ion 2 won't start.


You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Jeep Wangler is getting poor gas milage what could be the problem?


Bad fuel, dirty fuel filter, dirty air filter, dirty injectors. I'm assuming there's no check engine light on. You should get upwards of 20mpg easy. try replacing the airfilter and fuel filter. I would get a K&N airfilter, i've had great luck with them. you should notice amore power and better fuel efficiency. Also, use an injector cleaning additive, like Lucas, and use synthetic engine oil. it cost more, but you'll change it less often and it's worth it. I'm a fan of valvoline. oh, and make sure your tires are inflated properly, that can make a noticeable difference

If your check engine light is on use DB2 monitor to check code, replace sensor indicated. Check fuel filter if more than 30,000 miles, Could be ignition problem or weak fuel pump
