The engine light came on and it said "service engine soon". I called On-star and they said to drive it seven more times. They said the diagnostic code was P0442. I looked it up and it said possible


I don't know the age of your car, but it is likely the O ring on the gas cap is leaking, not allowing the fuel system to work properly. If you forgot to put on the gas cap or did not tighten it, after seven runs, the check engine light should clear. If it does not, then the easiest solution is to buy a new gas cap from the dealer. It will be about $25 - $30, and you can install it yourself. After installing the new cap, and seven trips later, IF the gas cap was the problem, the light should clear.

I have tried to replace the O ring on a cap before, but found it nearly impossible. Another trick would is to lightly coat the O ring with vasoline - then seven trips to see if that clears the light. This is only a temporary solution, but it may tell you if the problem is the gas cap. Godd luck!

Yellow warning light that says check is on What does it want? In manual it says take to dealer


Take it to a Pep boys if you don"t have a code reader.
They will check out the computer code warning you are getting right noe.
The cost will be about $40 or 50 bucks.
The dealer will charge you three times that much,plus Pep boys will give you a up front free estimate if you need any repairs.
Bet it's the gas cap though.
Try tightening your gas cap and driving the car around far a hundred miles or so.
remember never put gas or loosen the gas cap when the engine is on.
The computer will pick up the venting like it would a leak,thus sending a warning code to the computer.

Engine coolant hot light came on in my cadillac 2006 cadillac Escalade


Check to see what temperature it is. If it is above 230 deg. F or so, then check to see if there is enough coolant in the system (wait until it cools).

Also, check to see if the fan turns on if it has an electric fan on the radiator.

Replace spedometer cable 2003 gmc yukon xl


There is no speedometer cable on the 2003 Yukon, if there is no transmission issues like shifting problem. Your instrument cluster has gone bad, to pinpoint. Your stepper motor to your speedometer gauge has failed and needs to be replaced. You can do a search on Ebay for the stepper motor for around $10.00 which is better then the $400.00 cost of another instrument cluster.
There was a TSB on the replacement of the instrument cluster for your Yukon free of charge. The only cost to you is the labor charge unless your willing to do the job your self. Just go to the Gm Dealer and give them this TSB Number: # 07187C: Special Coverage Adjustment - Instrument Panel Cluster Gauge Needle Function - (Mar 20, 2009)
Subject:
07187C -- SPECIAL COVERAGE ADJUSTMENT - INSTRUMENT PANEL CLUSTER GAUGE NEEDLE FUNCTION

Some customers of all 2003-2004 model year and certain U.S. 2005 model year Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, and Tahoe; and GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles have reported that one or more of the instrument panel (IP) cluster gauges stick, flutter, or become inoperative. This may cause inaccurate readings, including the speedometer and fuel gauge. Special Coverage Adjustment This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 7 years or 70,000 miles (110,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.
Dealers are to replace the instrument panel cluster after the condition has been verified. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.

For verified failures between 70,001 miles (110,001 km) and 80,000 miles (130,000 km) on U.S. vehicles, dealers are to provide the customer with an instrument panel cluster (IPC) only. Any additional costs, including labor to replace the instrument panel cluster, will be the responsibility of the customer. Dealers are responsible for the return of the customer's IPC back to the Electronic Service Center

Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

Gas cap does not tighten down, engine light stays on


There is a recall on those gas caps. Go to dealer.

There is a


Before you try that try your gas cap, you can have it tested at most auto parts stores. First check to see if it is on tight if not that can cause that exact failure.

Before doing anything you should find out what engine code is causing the light to come on, I know autozone will check that for you and reset the code for free. Try that first , this will allow you to target the problem rather than hunt for it.

My check engine light came on today what does that mean?


There is an issue with the engine management in your saturn. If there is an Auto Zone around your area, have them scan the car for a DTC code which would indicate the issue. Auto Zone scan free of charge and can give you the step by step instruction to getting the job done to replace any faulty parts. Note: if the code comes back and a faulty gas cap, buy the OEM from the dealer. All others will fail with in one year. In the mean time open your gas cap and re tighten it and listen for at least three clicks when tightened. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted be glad to help.
