Last year I had to change my gas cap on my car, I did that This year, I was putting gas in my car and forgot to turn off the engine, the next day my check engine light came on. I checked the gas cap,...


Well, a lot depends on what MODEL, YEAR, and ENGINE SIZE your vehicle is. There may be a Technical Service Bulletin that may lead us to a known problem with your vehicle, but we cannot check for this with the information we have.
Evaporative Emissions fault codes must be properly diagnosed. Not all EVAP LEAK codes are caused by loose gas caps. On most vehicles, there are service bay tests that can be performed to eliminate the possibility of a loose or leaking gas cap. However, the proper equipment and techniques must be used. As you have now learned, it does absolutely no good to clear fault codes without properly diagnosing and repairing the condition that caused the code.

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.

Service engine light came on, after lifting hood


Were you at a service station fiiling your gas tank when you had your washer level checked? If yes, your gas cap is not enough tight. You must hear few clicks sound by the end tighting your cap back in place.
If it's the case, tight it correctly and chances are that the code/service light will disappear by itself during the next few days.

If it's not related to the gas cap iI don't see any relation with opening the hood. If the light stays on permanently visit your auto parts and ask them to get the OBD code from your vehicule computer.
Hope it will help

2005 check engine light comes on. had advanced


If the light is out, no worries. if it comes back on and the cap is tight, there may be other problems and a qualified repair shop will need to diagnose that for you. It may have a Evaporative Emission Leak.

Check engine light on on our 2000 toyota camry


If it was on for the gas cap the light will go out after about 5 days. Other wise have a part store read and clear your codes. (autozone)
