A faulty gas cap could cause an engine code to come on with-out and engine problems if you have to do emission tests or smog tests where you live the one thing there to check it that the gas cap is operating properly. but it could also be a sensor when the engine light comes on the car operates in what is called open loop mode the engine runs in preset peramiters set in the ECM it also runs in this mode til the vehicle is at operating temperator so even if the vehicle seems to be running ok the engine light isn't something that sould go unchecked

Why would my OBD or malfunction indicator light come on and stay on?


Check engine light comes on with faulty oxygen sensor, loose gas cap or faulty gas cap. sometimes with low octane fuel as well. fill up with high octane fuel, tighten down the cap and see if it helps.

Is the check engine light on ? Have you tried running it with the gas cap off ? The vent for the tank could be faulty. If you run it with the gas cap off, the check engine light may come on.

My service engine light was on for 3 days then it went off is there still a problem?


there could be. i would have it scanned. if the check engine light comes on steady (not flashing), there is a minor emissions problem (misfire, leak, etc.) this could be something as simple as a loose gas cap, or a faulty spark plug.

Malfunction Indicator light stays on on my 2006 Jeep Liberty.\r\nCar runs fine but light has stayed on when operating. I have checked gas cap. How can I turn off dashboard indicator light?


Mil light is coming on because it's registering a dtc (diagnostic trouble code) may or may not be evap/fuel vapor discharge like a loose or faulty seal in your gas cap. Have codes checked at an auto parts store (for free) and they can tell you what code/codes are showing. List them here for solutions. You can also have them erase code and if mil lamp comes on again you know somethings to blame and you need to check it out.

Engine check light comes on and stays on for awhile then goes off. Dometimes when I fill the gas tank the check engine light comes on. is something to do with the gas cap or the instrument lights.


IF IT COME ON EVERY TIME YOU GET GAS.GAS CAP HAS BAD SEAL IT MORE LIKELY YOUR PROBLEM BUT LET AUTO ZONE SCAN IT FREE TO SEE WHAT TROUBLE CODE YOU ARE GETTING.

'07 Tahoe; check engine light on steady. Just came


Have a dealer or garage check your Oxygen (O2) sensor. As a quick fix, try disconnecting and reconnecting your car battery. Sometimes this will reset the check engine light.Good Luck!

Check engine light


Sorry your going to have to change the gas cap. You can try  spraying WD-40 to the rubber seal on the gas cap to get you some more months out of it, the seals get hard and don't seal any more. Good luck
