The engine light cycles every so many starts. You will need to drive it for a while or take it to a shop to have it reset. Good luck

P0440 indicates the failure of the EVAP system to develop proper vacuum. If you got
and replaced a proper good quality gas cap, you have corrected the most common cause.
However, in fully searching the causes of this code ( ) (pardon the generic GM info, but will apply for you)-----you will find there are 5 other causes of the vacuum failure, which are independent of the gas cap. Your good local mechanic can sort those out; I would save your gas cap
receipt if you were advised to buy one not needed. As you probably know, your
State emission test facility checks your gas cap----so that is another way to find that specific portion of this answer,
(for their fee).
P0300 is a generic misfire code. For this, a specific Cadillac forum may be most

co-logo-100x100.png 2001 Deville intermittent service engine soon light code... I recently bought this car from an owner who took decent care of it but a week after i bought it, the service engine light appeared. After a few View on www.cadillacforums... Preview by Yahoo You will see that this generic code is perhaps more serious, costly, and harder
to track down than the P0440. You will also discover that P0301 is cylinder 1 misfire, P0302 is cylinder 2, and etc, etc. If you get a good diagnostic, they will generally
be able to localize the problem fairly specifically---and get a more specific fix. The person who reported this code was unhappy because he was given several ($$) fixes,
before he got one that erased the code, and was a solution. (Be forewarned ----A generic misfire can have umpteen issues--or one! !; use your own local preferred method for solving this with a mechanic who gives you good service, and stands behind what they do.)

Service engine lights

I have found when you go to the gas pump and do not secure the gas cap correctly your engine service light will come on. Once you secure the cap as it should be then your light will go off.

Clearing code #33 check engine light still on after replacing maf sensor

Check engine light can be as simple as the gas cap getting put on crooked. 5 stops and starts later and it will go off.

My 2002 audi a6 gas cap light shows on, when I start the car. I secured the gas cap until it clicked, however when I turn the ignition, the light comes back on.. please advise how I can get the gas cap...

OK I would recommend going to a local auto parts store that has a scan tool for use or will do free scans on the car. This device allows you access to the computer stored codes to help pinpoint the failure. A loose gas cap will usually show up as an EVAP Leak code. If those are the only codes that you see then they can be deleted with that scan tool and the light should go off. If the light comes back on again then you have other issues that might need to be corrected. I also believe what you are seeing is the check engine light but I would reference the service manual for clarification on that. Although this light will come on if you leave the gas cap loose, there remains many other reasons this light can betriggered to come on.

Service engine light stays on. Adjustment of gas

The gas cap is usually a good suspect in this case, but to figure it out, you need to have your code scanned to figure out what is causing the light. Most auto parts stores will scan it for free, so give them a shot

Check engine light

Hey, Lisa!
I had a problem with my 2004 Chevy Cavalier doing this - Try taking it to Autozone for a free diagnostics. I did this and replced the gas cap. The seal was bad and when I replaced the cap, the check engine light went out after a little bit.

Check engine light

I found that my check engine light comes on when I fail to turn the gas cap two clicks. It has something to do with the air . After I paid $50 for one of those diagnostics, I always make sure when it comes on to check if my husband failed to click the gas cap, correct the problem and the check engine light goes out before I have to gas up the next time and will stay off as long as I am the sole driver.
