No do not take to the dealer! replace the fuel cap with a locking gas cap,wal-mart ok autozone ok. advance auto ok nappa ok just replace the fuel tank cap,if you have to use force to remove old one, do it! only replace with a good locking cap, it keeps theives away, it insures your engine gets the fuel pressure needed to make your motor run at max. fuel capacity. it takes 180lbs of fuel pressure to operate your engine. just replace the fuel cap,after all, the light does'nt come on because it does'nt warn you of a pending problem! please do it for less than$10.00 is it really worth loosing your motor or leading to a cost of $400.00 to replace a bad fuel pump? thank you for choosing fixya.com

Remove fuel cap and reinstall it, tighten for 3 clicks your PCM recognized a small leak in your fuel system usually caused by a loose fuel cap. If the problem persists replace the fuel cap

You wouldn't think a gas cap would be that important, but it is. When it's loose or cracked, fuel vapors leak out and can throw the whole fuel system off. This causes a reduction in gas mileage and increases emissions.
What causes it: If you get an error pointing to the gas cap it means fuel vapors are leaking out of your cap. This means the cap is either cracked or just wasn't tightened well enough.
What you should do: If your car isn't feeling jerky or strange when the check engine light comes on the first you should check is the gas cap. Pull over, retighten it, and take a look at the cap to see if it has any cracks in it. Continue driving and see if the check engine light turns off. Alternately, you can purchase a gas cap for about $3 at an auto parts store. All you need to do is take the old one off and screw on the new one. If you've already made it to the store, you might as well just replace it. While not car-threatening, it's good to take care of this right away to improve gas mileage.

2009 crv check fuel cap


Go to the parts store where you bought the cap. Sometimes the code clears on it's own and sometimes you need to have it reset. If this is not an option disconnect the negative battery cable for a minute. Just as a warning, if you disconnect the battery you will have to reprogram most all of your electronics.

Hi, Ok you have confirmed that it's not a fuel problem. You need to check for spark. Pull the coil wire off of the coil(secondary lead-looks like a spark plug wire) Have some one crank it over and listen for a popping sound. IF yes, spark is at the coil, that means all ignition sensors are working. Next check for spark at ends of wires after cap. IF no replace cap and rotor. IF yes remove a couple spark plugs and check for fouling(wet, fuel etc...) IF yes replace or clean plugs and retest for starting. IF no spark is present at coil you need to scan computer and watch for rpm signal. IF no rpm signal, replace crankshaft sensor with OEM delco part. BIGGEST problem with these engines is Cap and Rotor burn out.

2008 mazda 3 gas cap broke. can i replace with a cap from auto zone, or does it need to be "vented"?


Your best option is to replace it with the Original Equipment cap from the dealer. If you ever have an EVAP emissions leak the first thing they ask you to do is check to see if there is an aftermarket fuel cap on the vehicle and if there is replace it with an O.E cap. The aftermarket caps are not the same!

Check engine light came on what does that mean


The onboard computer has detected a problem.

If still under warranty (emission related, up to 50K by government mandate), take to dealer. If not sure, take it to autozone or other auto parts store and have them hookup computer and printout the error code.

NOTE: If fuel cap is not on tight, it will set an error code. Can take several days to reset after correcting the gas cap.
