Sounds like your converter may be trying to stop up. good luck with it.

P0445 on my 2003 hyundai tiburon Gt evap

This code's description is P0455 Evap Emission System- Large Leak. Usually ,arge leak means you drove or still driving your vehicle with loose or missing gas cap. Check your gas cap if it is tight. Even if that is the case , tightening it might not turn the check engine light off. So you have to erase the code with a scanner. If your gas cap is in place and tight then you probably have a leak in the emission system which includes numerous parts. So it should be inspected by a proffesional.

Service engine light came on, was told it is due to gas cap not being on tight. Does this sound correct

This happens all of the time. The light usually goes out within a short time after the cap is tightened, up to a few days.

Even a strand of hair caught between the gas cap seal can cause the evaporative emission system to trip the warning light. .

Good luck!

What does it mean when the emissions light comes on in your instrument panel? the emissions light came on tonight while driving home I checked my gas cap to make sure it was closed tight and made sure that...

It could be emission related- the gas cap may be on tight but how about when you filled up before?And the cap can actually be bad - meaning it allows to much fuel vapour to escape. Your cap actually has to pass a pressure test during a drive-clean inspection. If your not due for a e-test then you may remove the gas cap and bring it to a drive-clean facility for a pressure test, usually it`s a no cost.If your cap passes then the problem can be related to your emission system on your car which consists of valves, solenoids and plastic vapour lines. Your auto repair shop can diagnose this for you. Either way you are not in any danger if you continue to drive your car.

Check eng. light is on, scanner sais small emissions leak, replaced rubber connecting lines already. Help

Small emission leak would indicate to me that the exhaust is leaking, maybe, throwing off the O2 sensor.

If it's an evaporative leak, then I would make sure the gas cap is on tight, and that the filler tube is connected with a vapor tight connection to the tank, and that the tank has no leaks in it.

What was the code, exactly, if I might ask?

2005 dodge Ram 1500 truck 5.7 Hemi check engine lights comes on

Two things you want to know about the check engine light on any vehicle. One is it's an emission warning. The most common cause is a loose gas cap, make sure it clicks when you gas up. Second, is that being an emissions light, is that it'll require some test equipment to find the problem if you checked the gas cap and it's tight. You will want to do that at your friendly Dodge dealer. Why? They'll not only know what it is, it might be fixed free in the emissions warranty which has some parts that are covered longer than the vehicle's regular warranty. The shop on the corner doesn't do warranty work and they're not going to tell you if it might be covered.
