The check engine light/service engine soon (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

I began to have issues with my '05 Hummer H2 a few weeks ago.....


P0496 = "Evaporative emission system high purge flow"


At the dealership, we get a lot of complaints like yours and they all started with running too low on fuel or running out.


Start with replacing the fuel filter and get back to me.


Running low/out tends to suck up micro trash from the bottom of the gas tank and that gunk clogs the fuel filter.

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero. replaced fuel pump aprox four month ago ( @ Aprox 100,000 miles), the last two fuel fills I have smelt gasoline in and around car (no visable leaks). Check engine light came on 1 week...


While a fuel filter won't normally cause the check engine light, it could cause other errors that would trigger the error light to come on.

Since fuel filters are easy to change and not very expensive, I would change it and see would happens. But you might also want to run a pressure test on your fuel pump also.

I have a chevy silverado i replaced the fuel pump 3 weeks ago... 2 days ago i was coming home from work it started losing power gradually... then i went to pass someone... soon as i stepped one it their...


it sounds like a converter is plugging up,if it runs good when you are just feathering the throttle,then the more gas you give it the slower it goes,that would point to converter,since you didn't say the truck didn't shut off on you when you kicked it down,i wouldn't think it would be fuel,but you can check the fuel pressure at the reed valve on the fuel rail,you need to see at least 55psi of fuel pressure for the truck to run.

There are literally many malfunctions that can turn that light on. You probably need someone with a code reader to pull the codes and go from there.

My engine light just came on. i did purchase gas


a good rule of thumb for the gas cap is at least 3 clicks. if you fuel while running you will trigger the light. if it continues to stay illuminated, it would be a good idea to get it checked. it will come up with a small evap leak code. happy holidays
