ONE IS LEAVE IT AND WHEN THE COMPUTER RUNS THE TEST AGAIN IT WILL SHUT OFF OR TAKE BOTH BATTERY CABLES OFF AND HOLD THEM TOGETHER FOR 10 MINUTES THAT WILL ALSO CLEAR THE CODE

SOURCE: check engine light went on because someone stole my gas cap

Theres two ways you could fix this issue. Disconnect the battery, let it sit for about ten minutes, or you can go to advanced auto parts, have them scan the car, and clear the code. Just tell them the CEL is on and they'll hook up the scan tool, then just ask them to clear it. That should solve the light problem in your car.

SOURCE: 2006 Suburban-

It may need a gas cap, and if you do make sure you get it from the dealer. Not all caps sold on the aftermarket are right for your truck. The code that sets is "evap small leak detected" and while the cap is the most common cause on newer cars, all it takes is a tiny crack in a hose to let the air into the closed system. Replacing a 4 year old cap is the easiest, but if it comes back you will need to find a shop that has a smoke machine. There is a port on the system you hook up to and pumps smoke at very low pressure into the closed system and you follow all the lines until you see smoke coming out of the leak. It is work the cost to have it diagnosed because you cannot find the leak with out the machine and the repair is generally nominal in cost. In most states it will not pass inspection with this light on.

Hope this helps

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.

SOURCE: How to reset check engine light after gas cap left

The light should turn off by itself after a couple of drive cycles, if not go to your local AutoZone and they can erase the code for you for free.

Why does the check engine light comes on saying the gas cap is loose or off when it is on tight.


Hi,
looks like there is a sensor on the filler cap/lid side.
which is faulty and not sending correct signal to the main computer in the car.

My check gas cap light is on but no check engine light came on


The check gas cap light was in response to complaints of the check engine light being on for loose/missing gas caps. So now when the PCM sees a large EVAP leak the first thing it does is illuminate the check gas cap light (on models equipped with the light). Since it doesn't know if the gas cap is on or not it can have other issues like a vent solenoid stuck open which the PCM would be unable to distinguish between that and the gas cap left off.

There will still be a trouble code in the PCM for the EVAP system.

The engine light came on and we had Auto Zone put it on the machine and told us that it was the gas cap. We replaced the gas cap but the light has still not went out, is there a way to reset it?


you can reset it with a code reader. However, the light will go out on its own after you fix the fault. It may take many start stop cycles. The computer will run tests to determine the cap is holding pressure. When it is satisfied that the problem is fixed it will turn off the light. Be patient. This will only happen if you replaced with the correct gas cap.

unhook the battery for about 15 minutes... that will reset it... make sure if you have an anti-theft type radio.. that you know the code and how to enter it.

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.
