Call the nearest chain auto parts store and ask if they do free scans. Most will scan you computer and retrieve the error codes stored in it which will tell you the nature of your problem.

You should have the code pulled it may be the same code as before or a different code.if its a evap code then it could be a sensor or valve not working properly or a bad hose for the evap system causing a vacuum leak setting the code.

Gass Cap


If your gas cap is not sealing you will get check engine light because of low pressure. Make sure you turn the cap until it clicks, if you still have the issue after that replace the gas cap.

Malfunction indicator light jeep 2009 wrangler


I too have had the warning on the dash indicating: "GAS CAP". It is a generic code for anything to do with the fuel cap, filler hose, or overflow, including the charcoal cannister evaporative recovery system. Sometimes it is an easy fix, to simply replace the gas cap. If people consistently twist the cap past the point where it clicks, after closing = it can wear out the cap, and prevent a good seal. However, a large majority of people have overfilled their tank too many times and the evaporative cannister is full and the overflow line is clogged or kinked. Start with the cheap solution first, gas cap.
My problem started after running the extreme obstacle course at Daytona Beach Jeep Beach 2013 at which point I pulled the cannister off the bottom and had to replace it. There are no skid plates protecting it and it would be easy for sticks etc. to get jammed up in and around that cannister while even mildly off road. Crawl under and follow the filler hose down from the passenger rear of the vehicle. The charcoal cannister is approx the size of 2 loaves of bread and sits just forward of the axle, next to the drive shaft.
Good luck.

Passenger side cv axle leaks transmission fluid. The axle has excessive play when moved up and down. Is problem inside transmission to allow the up and down play. No play in and out.


It will be part of the differential section. Usually easier, quicker and cheaper to source a second gearbox. Gearbox's are full of gears believe it or not, but also spring parts etc. They are not for the amateur to overhaul and often require specialised tools.

Trying to find were to check and see if i need more transmissin fluid in my 2002 pontiac grandamGT


To check the transmission fluid level in your car you have to raise the vehicle up and take out the transmission fluid check plug in the transmission. It is locate just below and forward (Towards the front of the car) of where the right axle goes into the transmission housing. To fill it take the plug out then remove the red cap located on the upper side of the transmission housing. You will need a long funnel to add the fluid. Add fluid until it can be seen dripping out of the check plug under the car. Then replace the cap and reinstall the plug. (There is no dipstick on your car)

Check engine keeps coming on, i dont see anything wrong with engine, but i have a locked gas cap and the last time i put gas in and sealed it back up the next morning the check engine light was gone


The fuel tank and lines is a pressurized system that is monitored by the computer and will set a emission code if there is a leak or you fill your tank with the vehicle running.

Check gas cap indicator light


Hi. this situation concerns a lose gas cap that you may have forgotten to tighten correctly during a recent fill up at your local gas station or, it could be that the original gas cap or replacement gas cap is not sealing the cap area correctly, preventing proper fuel pressure.

Check the gas cap to see if its tight and that it clicks when you turn it. make sure you turn until it clicks. this will ensure a secure fit.

Now, if you have just recently bought a new replacement cap, it may be the wrong fit and i would recommend purchasing the original replica form the dealership to ensure a tight fit.

Please rate and god bless:)

Transmission leaking


R/S axle seal probably damaged . Most likely enough fluid was lost to cause slippage. Try filling and get repaired. Tow if necessary. Hope this help

CV Axle removal and installation


The axle should be able to be removed by using a flat ended pry bar tool with a dull flat end. Or possibly a very large flat screw driver. Put the pry bar between the axle and transmission. With light pressure, the axle should pop out of the transmission. The axle just snaps into the transmission. There should be no need or cause to damage the seal because the seal is inset into the transmission. Just watch what you are doing. As far as replacing the seal, I do not know. I have not had to do that yet, and I have replaced both sides with new boots more than once.
