Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.


When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

Can a lose gas cap cause the engine light to come on on a 2009 280 volvo


Answer to this is YES. Replace cap with about 3 clicks this is enough. If your check engine light is on the cars computer wil erase after a few miles. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

GASCAP and engine light


A bad gas cap will cause the light to come on, of so replace the cap. The vent is not working if gas is coming back at you. Replace with new.

You have most likely sucked residue in the bottom of the fuel tank into your fuel filter, This can cause it to get blocked, Try fitting a replacement fuel filter as it's most likely it's never been changed anyway.

Sounds like water/debris in the gas tank. Try adding dry gas to the tank. Changing the fuel filter also a good idea.

Drive stopped


Same thing happen to mine, found out that it was the gas cap causing my problem. It was either air locked or sensor, but when I took the cap off and put it back on with at least 3 turns, never had the problem again. Hope this helps!

a P0442 would be a small evaportive emissons leak. The code would help. Generally a small emisson leak is a faulty gas cap. I would make sure that the gas cap is tight and that it is seating properly. For the $$ I would go buy a new one, but from GM only as aftermarket caps cause more problems then they solve. If you left your gas cap off for some time. I would just replace it and drive it for 3 cold starts and see if the light goes away. You can not reset the CEL from the fuse panel. unhooking the battery will do it but it will also reset all emissons monitors. I suggest you drive it with a new or tightned fuel cap and we can go from there.
