Don't know if it'll help, but, my 2002 Sportage's check engine light came on when I put gas in it and stayed on until I ran out all of that tank full. I asked at that station if anything had been added to their fuel, and after a lot of hee hawing, they admitted they were adding ethanol! So, watch where you buy gas!!

Gas tank making loud whinning noise when i take the gas cap off. what could be the problem?


assuming from the noise i am assuming your opening the gas cap while the engine is running. that noise your are hearing is prob the fuel pump. your really not supposed to open the gas cap while the engine is running. pressure is needed inside the gas tank for everything to work properly. after a while of doing so you may get a emissions code for either a small or a large leak. i recommend when pumping gas to shut the engine off to eliminate any future problems that could happen.

The ck engine light is telling you to have it scanned and it will have a trouble code to indicate where to look for the problem. You may have a Vent valve or purge valve problem, it may just be a coincidence that it happened after filling up.

My check engine light came on shortly after filling my gas tank. I did put more gas in the tank after the gas pump clicked that it was full. what could be the problem


If your check engine light came on shortly during or after filling the tank, and then goes off later, thats quite a relief. It really happens, and lucky for you dont have to bring your vehicle to a shop if the light persisted. Here are some tips regarding this issue: turn off the ignition switch before opening the fuel tank cap. Turn on and start only after the caps are properly closed. The scenario is that, whenever we refill gasoline on the tank, the pressure and the vacuum inside the tank are being upset, sometimes creating some kind of signal glitch which may be misinterpreted by the engine control module, and thus shortly illuminate the check engine light. I hope this lightened you up. Have a safe trip. : )

The engine light comes on. When the gas tank is


Most likely an EVAP code. Need to scan it to get the specifics.

My 2005 will not allow me to pump gas when it is partially full. The pump kicks off and you can only allow gas to dribble in very slowly. Engine light is on as well


Could be that something is inside of the filler neck that is blocking part of the hose like when someone tries to steal your gas and breaks off the hose or leaves it in your tank. Sometimes the way the hose is routed causes it to take slowly. Engine light on means there is a code set that indicates a problem. You can go to one of the automotive stores and they will read it for free. Then come back on here and post what code it is.

Im having a similar problem with the engine light being on-


Most vehicles will sense that the tank is not sealed, will turn on a light. Depending on the make of car, may have to drive several hours, several starts, etc. before it resets itself after you correct the gas cap problem.

88 Ford F250 rear gas tank will not work


Sounds like the rear fuel pump in the tank is not working and the float or sender is bad also. check to see if the rear pump is working should make a humming noise.

The check engine light also monitors the deairate system of the gas tank. On the undercarriage (below the drivers seat) are 2 rubber tubes which get briddle over time check those for cracks. If you don't find any it is probably necessarry to empty the gas tank complety, make sure the engine is cold and pressurize the whole fuel system with smoke in order to find that leak.

A blinking air bag light might indicate a broken insulation on one of the wires of the wire harness wrapped around the steering column(inside a black plastic cover). To access it it would be necessarry to remove the steering wheel.
