I have a cadillac cts 2008, when i fill the tank with gas and open the key the engine does not star, i have to do it one more time. what is causing this problem?


When you open the gas cap, you relieve the pressure in the fuel system. Once you replace the cap, this pressure must be reestablished. All vehicles have a fuel system "prime" function that causes the fuel pump to run for about 3-5 seconds after turning the key to bring fuel pressure to the fuel rail. It sounds as though your system isn't getting enough pressure on the first prime, so you must cycle the key twice to get full pressure. It could be a sign of the fuel pump starting to fail.

After putting gas in my car it wont start


I can think of a couple of things that may be the problem.
1. Reset the computer by removing the + and - battery cables, leaving them off about 5 minutes. Reset the cables & start the car. Sometimes they get out of computer sequence and have problems.
2. If you ran the tank too low prior to filling up, you may have some trash in the line caught in the filter.
I wouldn't consider the fuel pump, because when it fails you cannot start the vehicle at all.
Does your check engine light stay on? Does it run rough while driving, or do you just have trouble getting it to start? If it runs rough, it could be spark plugs or the control sensors on each spark plug.

LINCOLN MKX 2008 ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON THEN OFF FOR A FEW DAYS AND COME BACK ON AGAIN..... ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS SAME PROBLEM? THANKS :)


So many parameters are monitored by the engine light and its system.
From O2 sensors to a misfire to even a gas cap not on correctly.

One cannot troubleshoot if the light if it comes on and back off intermittently.
Once it comes on and stays on can it be checked.

But, just a hunch...try putting in a tank of high test gasoline that has NO alcohol in it.

Check Engine lights are notorious for coming on due to alcohol being burned and that fuels ineffeciency.

Hope this helped...

The code is po455.my check engine light is on and sometimes when i start it it seems like it cranks forever before it starts


Hi
The code P0455
Check for a faulty fuel cap,
Damaged pinch or blocked EVAP purge line ,
Fuel Vapour lines pinched or blocked ,
EVAP canister purge line ,or vent valve malfunction .

If no damage can be found ,could of been your fuel cap was not replaced correctly at the last fuel fill up.

Own a 2008 pontiac torrent gxp ''check gas cap'' message appears and service engine soon light illuminates ive already replaced gas cap but service engine soon light is still on. does anyone know how to...


The system is set up by GM to have the cleared with a codes cleared by a OBIII hand held device which can be purchased at many auto parts stores. Auto Zone can clear it for you for free if you ask them to do so. If the code does come back you may want to purchase a factory fuel cap instead

Check engine light keeps coming on replaced gas cap already


Your problem is in the evaporative emission system which is designed to prevent the escape of fuel vapors from the fuel system. Leaks in the system, even small ones, can allow fuel vapors to escape into the atmosphere. The light coming on can be caused by one of the following:

1. Defective or loose fuel cap
2. EVAP canister or hose cracked- not connected
3. Purge or vent solenoid defective
4. Vacuum leak at engine Government regulations require on-board testing to make sure that the evaporative (EVAP) system is functioning properly. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage. It also performs self-diagnostics. You have tried the easy fix, the gas cap. Finding the leak now will require special equipment and testing procedures, might be better left to a professional.

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

Trouble starting only after refueling


same problem 06 CTS...you probably hear a ticking noise under the hood, and car will not start after re-fueling- check engine code is like a p0442? which is a leak in the fuel system. you can try buying a new gas cap from cadillac or an ac-delco distributor to start. its only about twenty dollars. disconnect battery for about ten minutes to reset check engine light or find a local shop with an obd-2 scanner to reset light and re-diagnose. If check engine light comes back on with same code replace the evap. purge valve.(about $25) it is located on the passenger side of car on the intake manifold. it has one electrical connector and two hoses connected to it. no tools required to change which is a plus! disconnect battery or find local shop to reset light again. this should take care of the problem!!
