Start by cleaning and inspecting gas cap and any seal such as "o" ring style on cap. Clean threads in filler pipe as well. Try adding a small amount of vaseline to threads and any "O" rings or seals .

If the gas cap is also not tightened properly you can get that light to be triggered .

Service engine soon light was on and now went off? what is the problem?


Often times it is a loose gas cap. Have you refueled between the light going on and going off? You probably fixed your problem.

I have 2001 toyota sienna. while im driving the engine ligths indication on my dash board lights on. any body have an idea or same problem i have and do have a solution fix it thanks


hi,dear friend,
If the light comes on and stays on, the OBD system has detected a problem. Your vehicle might have a condition that wastes fuel, shortens engine life, or causes excessive air pollution. If left unaddressed, these conditions could also damage your vehicle and lead to increasingly expensive repairs. For example, OBD can identify a loose or missing gas cap (which wastes fuel and contributes to smog) or engine misfire (which can lead to severe or permanent engine damage).

There is no cause for panic. The vehicle is just telling you to seek attention soon. When you reach your destination, make sure the gas cap is not loose or missing. Always turn off your engine when refueling. If the light does not go out after a few short trips following gas cap replacement or tightening, have your vehicle serviced by a qualified repair technician soon! Delaying assistance could lead to more expensive damage.
hope help.

The service engine soon light came on in my 2005 Nissan Maxima, is this a serious problem?


The check engine light/service engine soon (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, this can be as simple as a loose gas cap, u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Service engine soon light is on how to turn off 2001 chevyvan 4.3 1500


You need to diagnose and replace whatever is causing the problem and causing the ECU to give of that check engine signal. If possible have it hooked up to an OBD2 reader and find the error code. Then decode the error code and it will tell you what needs to be replaced.
