    Same here. It happened just after we had the slightest bump from a car behind us - the kind of bump at a stop light that we barely noticed. Now, about a day after we fill up, the engine emmision control light comes on and stays on, until we open and tighten the gas cap. It fixes it after a day, but then go through the same thing the next time we fill up.

    My gas emissions light keeps coming on, even after I tighten the gas cap. I actually bought a new one, thinking the cap might be old. When I fill up, the cap is in tightly, and after driving a while the light goes out, but then it comes on again, and when I go to tighten the gas cap, it appears like it is loosend a bit!

    We too are having the same problem, we drove the car for about 45km (Toronto Canada here) and had the car parked for a while.

    When we went to go home the car engine emission light came on and the car began to sputter and chug. We did the same as everyone else here and tightened the gas cap.

    DOES anyone have any ideas what this is? or how it can be fixed?

    Having basically the same issue. Emission light comes on when tank is roughly full and goes out about less than 1/2 tank. Mechanic has checked the codes twice, same issue showing faulty catalytic converter.

  • subbaraop Sep 03, 2008

    I have engine check , which showed catlytic converter fault for a few weeks and gone on its own after a couple of gas fillings. I was trying to get catlytic conevrter replaced but delayed. Since the light went off I fdid not do anything. After several months the engine check light came back on.

Posted on Mar 28, 2009

Same issue here on an 04 Accord. 80K miles. We took it to the dealer, and he says a sensor was going out. No big deal. Sometimes it's on, and sometimes it's not. The dealer said it wasn't a big deal, as it's "after" the intake of the fuel to the engine or something like that, but it is going to be about $230 to repair. We'll try to do it when we find the time and money.

SOURCE: the abs/vsc/trac and check engine

Its possible.

Whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and Traction control will disable because they need the engine at 100% in order to function correctly. Since the ABS light is on I would have to wonder if it isn't an abs problem. Since the VSC and Traction control use the ABS sensors/system to function.

Or there is a problem with both the engine and the ABS.

The only way to know for sure is to have the PCM scanned and the ABS module to see what is goind on.

SOURCE: Emission Control System

To accurately diagnose this problem , you should have this car check by a computer to see exactly which component is BAD. Here is my suggestion ITS FREE.. Go to an auto-zone and have them put this vehicle on a code scanner ITS free and see what the code is it may be something like a purge valve system leak or even an 02 -oxygen sensor. Good luck and thanks for using FIX Ya .. contact if you need more help.

Service engine soon light


A service engine soon light that flashes generally results form an ignition problem with the engine. A service engine soon light that stays on constant results from an emission control system malfunction. A diagnostic scan from the local parts store can determine which emission system is faulty.

Service engine light and no power


Hi there:
First, it is normal for the check engine light to come on momentarily when you turn on the ignition switch and then go out. If it stays on, then you have a stored code that indicates a malfunction of some kind in your engine or transmission control systems.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

I suggest visit some Autozone or AutoShop with OBD Scanner Reader in order to scanning the module to know exactly wat fault code is stored there; note this code number for additional details.

Hope this guide helps.

Emission control system and the location


Light knowed as Emission Control? Its possible that you are talking about Check Engine light, that generally is refer at emission problem. When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out.


To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.

The four most common Check Engine Light scenarios and what to do:
* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system.

It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have engine light on and code 1457 on 1999 Odyssey.Please help!!!!!!!!!


That code is "evaporative emission control system leakage. (evap. canister system)"

this code takes at least two drive cycles to set. You can try to reset the engine light and emission computer and clear the code and see if the code resets. If it stays clear, it was probably a spurious code. To reset the engine light and emission computer, pull the No. 13 "clock/backup" (7.5A) fuse in the front passenger's kick panel fuse box. Wait at least 10 seconds. Put the fuse back in. This should put the check engine light out. If the light comes back on after two drive cycles (that is; start, run for a while, turn off X 2) have it checked out by a mechanic.
