Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

The engine light comes on, upon checking manual it says that if I used different fuel this may occur or if the gas cap was put on improperly. All gauges and functions seem to be in order and the vehicle is operating smoothly. No weird noises.. Could this be in fact because of different fuel..It says this light comes on with respect to emmision control. The engine light does not blink but stays on. Oil etc up to levels required..

You need to take the vehicle to a commercial auto parts store (like advance, pep boys, auto zone) and have the engine computer scanned-they do it for free, and will provide a code (i.e. 'P0171')-this will supply evidence of your issue, whatever it is. You could then google the code or come back on here, lots of people are happy to help if you can provide this information.

What does the check engine light mean


Autozone says the top five reasons you get a check engine light comes on is:
O2 sensor needs replacing
Gas cap is loose, damaged, or needs replaced
Catalytic converter needs replaced
Mass air flow sensor needs cleaned or replaced
The spark plug or spark plug wires need replaced.
However, it is important to note that some Miatas may have a problem where the problem is caused by an improperly tightened fuel cap. However, due to improperly manufactured threads on the fuel filler pipe, the filler pipe may need to be replaced.

My 2003 S-10 with 48,000 had the check engine light come on today. I just recently bought the truck from an elderly lady that stated she has never had a problem with the truck. I put 85 Octane gas into...


The difference in fuel type won't turn the check engine light out. You may be on the right track with the new fuel cap, they are very common to set an EVAP code, usually P0442 for a small leak (such as a loose or leaking gas cap). The other problem they are known for is code P0128 for a faulty thermostat, opening too soon. It's still best to have it scanned at a large parts retailer, usually for free, then diagnose the actual trouble code rather than just the symptoms. There are literally 1500 trouble codes for your vehicle alone.

What does diagnostic code PO455


A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON


My guess is you have a leak either in the fuel tank itself or in the plumbing from the cap down to the tank. Have you ever been in a wreck?

When fueling the vehicle, do you see any gas leaking out under the vehicle?

Does the area where the gas cap screws in have any damage that would allow a leak to occur?

Another area to look at is the system that recycles gas fumes back to the gas tank.

Something is not allowing the tank to hold pressure.

Don't use any higher octane fuel than what the manufacturer recommends, that will cause problems with cold starts and other poss issues due to the diff of the fuel burn rate. As far as the check engine light goes there are 100 different things that turn the light on, all are related to faults that have occurred in the electronic control of the engine, emission control system and in some cases the transmission, have the powertrain control module tested for trouble codes, whenever the light comes on one is stored.
