Do you need to reset the check engine light after replacing gas cap for the check engine light to go away? I replaced the gas cap but the light still on. Is there any way to try resetting the check engine light?

Did you check your gas cap

Check engine light and check gas cap


First, you have to have the trouble codes cleared from the computer memory to make the warning lights go off.
And the problem may be a leak in the gas tank venting system instead of the gas cap. The gas cap is the most often cause, but not always. You may have to get a shop to check for leaks.

My check engine light came on code P0446; dashboard says "check gas cap" i took it off retightened it and check engine light still on. I noticed that the metal flap for the gas nozzle is...


The metal flap should not trigger the sensor. Once you tighten the gas cap you should clear the code and see if it comes back. Otherwise it will take a while to go away.
If it does come back even though the gas cap is tight it could be the rubber seal around the gas cap replacing that can sometimes fix this issue also.

Some body stolen the fuel gas cap frome my car,i drive 2 day w/out cap.when i see that im buy new gas cap,but tha chek engine come in on,what can i do to solve this problem?thanks


One of the problems that trigger a check engine light is either a faulty gas cap, gas cap not on all the way or no gas cap. Once you replace the gas cap you should be able to reset your check engine light or it may automatically adjust itself.

2006 Saturn Relay Check Engine Light


PO455 is a large evaporative fuel leak. A bad fuel cap is ONE of the things that COULD be the problem. Fuel system cleaning only lightened your wallet. Reading your post is confusing. Did all this start AFTER the Valvoline Wallet Flushing? If so , they left something loose or disconnected. I would find a qualified repair shop to fix the problem, and if it has anything to do with what Valvoline did, make them pay the bill.

there is a large evaporative leak. keep away form ottozoo, they dont have the brain power to actually diagnose a light bulb., their job is to sell parts., if they sell you the wrong parts tough.Take it to a qualified repair shop that does a lot of GM work or the dealer.

The check engine light stays on. When I connect the computer it says it is the gas cap or the EGR. I put a new gas cap on. Check engin light stays on. How difficult is it to replace the EGR valve?


its easy too replace but you need too reset your cmputer first too see if the light stays out before you go and buy the egr valve
disconnect the pos side of the battery for 5 min that will reset the computer,if the light comes back on then get the egr valve then you will have too reset it again

Check engine light on


I had the same problem. I went to the kia dealer and they checked the code that caused the light to be on and found I had a leak in the gas cap. They replaced the gas cap and the problem went away. You night need to find out what made the check engine light go on in the first place.
