Did you refuel while leaving the engine running? Have OBD scan done before light resets. Temporary errors are cancelled after a number of start cycles.

If you are fueling with the engine running,this would be the problem,or the fuel cap is bad,or the light has nothing to do with it,have the codes pulled from the computer with a code reader to make sure of what the code is.

If the gas cap was on pretty tight and it happens when you fuel up then it is possibly vapor locking.

What would cause a p0236 code to continually go off even after knock sensor has been replaced twice?


Is there a knock in the engine? If the motor rattles, the knock sensor will think its pinging and retard the timing to compensate. This will set the code.

Service engine soon light was on and now went off? what is the problem?


Often times it is a loose gas cap. Have you refueled between the light going on and going off? You probably fixed your problem.

Check fuel cap light went on today. how do i fix it?


If you refueled your vehicle with the engine running, this is what caused the light to come on. Otherwise, your fuel cap may not be on correctly. Check your fuel cap and make sure it is installed correctly. Be sure that it "Clicks" when you tighten it. Then drive the car for a couple days and the light should go out on its own. If it does not go off in 2 or 3 days, then you need to have your evaporative emissions (fuel tank) system checked for leaks.

check your gas cap, if loose it will set off lite, tighten cap and after a time it will reset itself and go out after a few key cycles... I have seen it take a day or two though sometimes...

I would have the front brakes checked and from what you are telling me you may have a warped rotor I do not know how many miles are on the car some cars have a reset after the oil change has been done to turn off the check engine light but if it keeps coming on take it to autozone and they will put it on a tester for free and then you will know what needs to be done
