Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo

Engine Light on...

Driving home from work today I noticed the orange check engine light on. I checked the gas cap since I got gas 2 days earlier. The cap may have been a little loose, not sure yet. When I started the car back up the light was still on. Is there something else I should look for before taking the car to the dealership?

    My 06 AVEO has the check engine light on and is running poorly like a fuel filter problem, I have not changed it in 30,000 miles, buit it gave no warning, just started acting like it was starved for gas idling up and down between 800-1200rpm. when gibing gas it was okay but still hesitant. my wife said it was barley creaping at about 5 mile per hour. any help would be appreciated. also does the fuel filter look like a box about 12" long and 4-5 inches high and 6 inches wide?

    I had the same problem, we took it to Autozone and had it hooked up to their computer. I had to replace my Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) sensor, to the tune of $177.

    All this part was is the gas pedal and some wires coming out of it. VERY easy to change (my hubby did it, but I could have!), all you have to do is remove some bolts and unhook the old wiring (it's a plug), then hook up the new wiring and rebolt the new gas pedal.

    Unfortunately, we didn't have the money at first so we drove ours until it wouldn't start anymore. Now we have other issues (we think it's the plug wires).

Odds are that if you didn't do any work under the hood, you are going to have to get the codes read. In most of the newer cars even if it is the gas cap and you put it back on, you may still have to get it hooked to computer to get the code cleared. There really isn't anything else to check if you haven't had any maintenance done recently.

1993 Isuzu NPR when taking off transmission shifts good but after bout 1/4 mile downshifts out of overdrive and will not shift into of again until it sits and cools for a little while

Many of todays cars have a mode called Limp Mode. The Motor and Computer talk to each other and if faults are found? The Limp Mode (( Short for Limp on home mode )) will be set in the Computer. Go to your local Auto Zone and ask them to Scan the OBD 2 fault codes with their reader. Or pay the dealer. It may be something really simple. My Check Engine light was on the other day because the Gas Cap was loose. This Scanner told us the problem and we tightened the Gas Cap. After 3 times driving the car with it tight .... The Check Engine light went off.

Car stalled while driving and now check engine light is on

Most likely was seizing up because of lack of oil. Not gas.

Check Engine Light On, Accompanied by the Gas Cap Warning Light

I'm not sure what you mean by "kick". But the gas cap light will not affect the performance of the engine or transmission.
I would recommend having the computer scanned for trouble codes next.
The gas cap light means the computer has found a vac leak in the venting system for the gas tank and it could be allowing fumes into the air. The most common reason is the gas cap has been left off or is not tight. But if you have replaced it the problem is elsewhere in the venting system. The trouble code stored for the check engine light would point a mechanic in the direction of the actual problem.

Error code 340 & 457

  • P0340 - Camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction.
  • P0457 - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (fuel filler cap loose/off)

    There is a bulletin #0398 posted on 05/12/2003 for P0457 - Malfunction indicator lamp (mil) illumination with diagnostic trouble codes p0442, p0455, p0456, p0457, p1442 or check fuel cap lamp illuminated with diagnostic trouble code p0457.

I'd suggest checking with your local dealer, as it may be a fix that is covered by the dealer.

I have a 2005 Jeep liberty and I recently lost my gas cap(4 days ago). My check engine light came on and I am wondering if it is due to the gas cap being lost. Going to buy a new one today.

Yes...the cap needs to be on there or the purge system will register a leak. The light may not go out right away but usually will after about thirty miles of driving. (computer needs to go through a complete self test cycle).

2003 Jeep Sport Liberty I noticed the malfunction indicator light came on when I was driving home from work. I checked my owners manual to see if I could get an idea why the light came on. I proceeded to...

Undoing your battery doesn't help, years ago it did clear the memory, but not on todays vehicles. You need to have it scanned. If there is no errors in your computer right now, after a bunch of starts (starting your engine, and driving) it will reset itself. It does sound like you have an issue that the computer has detected.
