My service engine lite came on right after i filled up with gas


Check the gas cap and make sure it is tight, if cross threaded or the seal is bad the light will kick on. Hope this helps.

Service engine light came on, was told it is due to gas cap not being on tight. Does this sound correct


This happens all of the time. The light usually goes out within a short time after the cap is tightened, up to a few days.

Even a strand of hair caught between the gas cap seal can cause the evaporative emission system to trip the warning light. .

Good luck!

I have honda odyssey and the service engin coms on and the cod is p1456 so ineed to figur out thanks.


This probably means:
  • P1456: Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (Fuel Tank System)
  • Usually this is because your gas cap was not fully tightened. Be sure to turn it until you hear a click.
  • After you tighten the cap, it might take a couple days of driving before the light goes-out.
  • Be careful to tighten your gas cap regularly, because otherwise it puts a heavy strain on your emission system.

Check Gas Cap alarm comes on and engine light is on


You gas cap is not on tight enough to seal causing the Check Engine Light to come on. When you tighten your gas cap you need to tighten it until it clicks at least 5 times, if it is tight than the seal on the gas cap may be bad. Replace with a OEM GM gas cap or a quality replacement that meets OEM specs.

MY ENGINE LIGHT APPEARED-WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM.


it means a fault was detected in one of your emmisions systems. a loose gas cap will turn it on along with a million other things.check to see if cap is on tight give it a couple of turns.it dont hurt it to make the clicking sound when tightening.
if it was loose it will take a while for the light to self eztinguish. it has to have 3 warm up cycles with no leaks from tank to aloww light off
other then the gas cap being loose you will have to have the code pulled at a shop and go from there

Check gas cap indicator light


Hi. this situation concerns a lose gas cap that you may have forgotten to tighten correctly during a recent fill up at your local gas station or, it could be that the original gas cap or replacement gas cap is not sealing the cap area correctly, preventing proper fuel pressure.

Check the gas cap to see if its tight and that it clicks when you turn it. make sure you turn until it clicks. this will ensure a secure fit.

Now, if you have just recently bought a new replacement cap, it may be the wrong fit and i would recommend purchasing the original replica form the dealership to ensure a tight fit.

Please rate and god bless:)

Tightened the gas cap. Emisions testing left it slightly loose setting off the sensor warnings. Even if it doesn't "look" like it is ose take it off and put it back on tight. If the warnings are still flashing then it prob is the sensor. Caddy's are very touchy about their gas caps!
