The problem pump gas is a common problem with the gas pump it self try turning the handle slightly to either side this may allow gas to flow better. The second problem the service engine soon light comes on for many different reasons not just the gas cap. auto zone usually will scan your computer for free and tell you what the diagnostic trouble codes are. find out and let me know and we can go from there. Good luck.

2004 trailblazer, after getting gas,check gages lite came on, then turned off. truck running rough and after going over 40 miles per hr, service engine lite flashes.

Sounds like there was water in the gas, which would make the engine run rough, service engine lite might go on. Try adding an octaine additive to gas.

2005 Silverado won't start

Assuming this is a crank no start, open the gas cap, put your ear to the fuel fill as close as possible. Have an assistant turn the key on, you should hear the pump turn on for approximately 2 seconds. If it does not, have the assistant crank the engine while you hit the bottom of the fuel tank with a hard rubber mallet. Sometimes this will jar the pump enough for it to run.

I have a 2000 dodge dakota quad cab (4.7L / V*). My check engine light kept coming on after tightening the loose gas cap. I purchases a new gas cap specifically for my truck and the light came on again...

Check that there are no other leaks in the gas filler neck or gas tank itself that would cause the gas cap error to cause the check engine light to go on.

A lack of pressure in the tank can cause the check engine light to go on, erroneously signalling that the gas cap is loose or missing.

Good luck on this repair.

04 chev. 1500 fuel tank will not take gas, gas

Evap vent solenoide is stuck closed. Start by replacing the valve and checking the hose to the valve for clogs...this is located between the cab of the truck and the bed of the truck on the driver side (can be seen if you look down through the crack)....If this doesn't work then check the fuel filler neck hose for kink or restriction this is the hose that goes from the gas cap to the fuel tank.

2005 chev silver 4wd ext cab 4.3 evap solenoid problem

I had the same code on my 2005 Tahoe. I kept getting the tighten fuel cap warning and code P0455. I just replaced the Fuel Tank Evaporator Control, GM part # 25932571. List price is $28.27. On the Tahoe it is located on the passenger side in front of the rear axle next to where the exhaust goes up and over the axel. With a lift it took about 20 minutes to replace it. I don't know if the location is the same on the Silverado. GM parts direct has the part for $14 and change with another $12 and change for's easier to go to the dealer and pick it up.

Gas Cap Error with Check Engine light

By "Replace the gas cap", do you mean put it back on, or buy another one? If you fuel these trucks with the engine running, or don't tighten the gas cap, the light will come on. It will also come on when the seal in your gas cap goes bad. I have had to replace the gas cap on my jeep and dodge already. It fixed the problem both times.
