    engine light will not go off, have replaced air supply hose, 3 coils, still on, it runs a little rough, takes one to two cranks to start and stalls out inconsistently, very frustrated.

Ok if light coming on saying there is a leak on the evap system
like code po442 or any close to that code that emans something in the evaporative system controler is leaking fuel vapor, and could be under the engine or under the car, it is some hoses than most of times have a green color plastic cap under the engine compartmet, follow the hoses and make sure nothing is disconected or crack or broken, if you can nto located the leak,
then call arround to auto repairs and ask them if they have a somke machine to lacate leaks at the evaporative system on your car, if they say yes then take it to them to locate the leak,
the way this smoke machine works is by aplying smoke to the lines and if any leaks found then the leak start pushing smoke aou at the leak so it can be fix,
one more thing, never fill the fuel tank with the car runing, that will turn your light on, not right at the moment but later on

    it could be also the fuel cap loose, but the light will go off by reset it, or you have to do 40 starts on engine from cold to hot, and if system don't find any more leaks it will turn the light off after 40 starts of your engine from cold to hot, or just go to autozone and they will reset the light for you at not cost

Gas cap indicaytor light came on. Changed cap and made sure it was tight but indicator light still comes on

The gas cap light is a generic light that indicates an emission problem. Usually a vacuum/pressure leak within the system. The gas cap is usually the first thing to check, however may not be the problem. There are numerous sensors and lines that control the vacuum/pressure/ of the fuel vapors and one of these is loose/disconnected/defective causing this light to come on. I would recommend inspecting hoses under the hood for any that may be loose/disconnected. You may also require a scan test to view sensor data to isolate the source of the light

Check Engine Light appeared; diagnostics resulted in PO455 code

If you Googled the code, you would find you
have an Evap System Gross Leak

If the gas cap was just loose the light will go out

The evap monitor only runs every few days,so
you may have to wait & see

I think you need to smoke the system & find the
route cause,vent solenoid,pressure solenoid,etc

Dashboard has alight just come on it looks like a engine or gear cog

This is calle dthe check engine light , this light comes on when the computer sees a problem, the computer stores a code in its memory, you can go to alot of autopart stores most of them will scan the computer for free and get the codes with a scan tool the code will tell you what is failing, for example it may be as simple as a loose gas cap. check and see if the gas cap is loose, if the cap is loose then tighten it and drive car for a week the light will reset if that was the problem, the computer is always testing all systems and if it was the cap the fuel system will pass the test and the light will go out if its not a loose cap then have it scanned, the code will tell you, for example lets say the code is po532, b1 o2 sensor heater, this would mean the front oyxgen sensor heater is bad, or that the connection to sensor is bad, hope this helps good luck.

Ford Mustang service engine soon and check fuel cap lights are on

Check fuel cap light will not immediatly go out upon replacement of the fuel cap. Might take several days. You could go to a local autoparts store and have them read the trouble code (for check engine light) and reset it. If it was indeed the fuel cap the light should stay off after resetting it. Most autoparts stores do not charge a fee to do this.

My low fuel light came on the same time as the check engine light.

this cars have a pressure sensor that comes on when the fuel cap is loose, get a scan tool to check for other problems.

These parts houses will run a scan on your truck for free now a days. It could be something simple or complicated, you need a scan to tell what codes show up. This will at least give you some direction toward the problem.
