You have to get the codes and make the repairs to for the light to go off and depending on the code it may not go off by itself you will need a scan tool once the repair is made.You can get it checked at Auto Zone or O`riellys they will check it for free.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Service engine soon light came on, I took it to get it checked out, they said it was the gas cap not sealing properly, got a new gas cap, the light went out, it has only been a few hours, it is on aga


there is, unhook the battery let the car set for an hour and re hook it. but i can tell you it will come back on. the reason they told you it was a gas cap is the code told them it was an evap/purge system problem. this is very commonly the gas cap. but in your case it might not be as the light came back on.

Lets start with how knowledgeable you are

You have an EVAP System issue,maybe

You asked if the gas cap is specific

You know that it is to some extent
Application Specific -but the parts store
would give you the correct one

Was the first code even related to a gas cap?

When you say I was told, you mean what?

A professional mechanic you asked a question,
took a guess to give you an answer?

Do you know how to test the solenoid your
referring to? If not take it to a repair shop &
let them Smoke Test it & actuate all the system
components with a scan tool.

Why check engine light come on mostly after refuiling after a long drive ?


Because your vehicle is a 2008 I feel it shouldn't be anything to pressing but still take some precautions.

What alot of people don't know is sometimes if the gas cap is not put on tight enough a little air might get in or your gas pump might have to work a little harder because it can't get full vacuum pressure with the cap slightly open. these are not major issues.

these are reasons why your check engine light comes on. It happened to my 2005 Buick Rendezvou We had the check engine light on for a week. The car never shuttered, stalled, delayed starts it ran perfectly fine. I took it in to check engine light their computer showed that it was the EVAP system which is the heating and cooling system I would have to get it checked for leaks or do a static check for leaks.

This didn't look good but then one day I had done some work for a friend told him of my problem he told me it could be my gas cap. The next day I asked my wife if the gas cap was working on vehicle it actually was broke I replaced gas cap and the check engine light came off.

Now with this story (which is true) don't assume every problem could be this. But if you are not noticing any stalls, delayed starts, shuttering anything out of the ordinary check the cap at times to make sure it is closed.

If you keep on having light on and replaced cap or made sure was securely on then take and get it checked out.

Check engine light


you were told your vehicle has small/large evap leak detected? The leak could be coming from any number of components. Fuel tank seal, evap purge valve, check valve. The best way is to find the leak with a smoke machine. It is designed to find leaks in the evap system. There is a port with a green cap in the engine compartment. This is where the hose from the machine attaches to. Turn machine on. Where ever you see smoke, this is where the leak is.
