Is this the original cap ?

If it is check the screwing both on the cap and on the chainsaw and look for some bends or defects that might cause it to get stuck .
clean the screwing of the cap and the petrol tank opening and oil it slightly.

If none of the above helps consider replacing the cap with new one just make sure it is suitable for your chainsaw model .

hope that helps

Why is it almost impossible to get the gas cap off my 2004 Buick Rendezvous

Are you pushing down on the cap while you twist it off, if not that is the problem.

Gas cap stuck won't come off?

Grab a pair of channel locks to get a good grip on the cap and twist counter clockwise. The back pressure created in the tank from the gas depleting can make the cap seem impossible to remove.

The engine light came on and it said "service engine soon". I called On-star and they said to drive it seven more times. They said the diagnostic code was P0442. I looked it up and it said possible

I don't know the age of your car, but it is likely the O ring on the gas cap is leaking, not allowing the fuel system to work properly. If you forgot to put on the gas cap or did not tighten it, after seven runs, the check engine light should clear. If it does not, then the easiest solution is to buy a new gas cap from the dealer. It will be about $25 - $30, and you can install it yourself. After installing the new cap, and seven trips later, IF the gas cap was the problem, the light should clear.

I have tried to replace the O ring on a cap before, but found it nearly impossible. Another trick would is to lightly coat the O ring with vasoline - then seven trips to see if that clears the light. This is only a temporary solution, but it may tell you if the problem is the gas cap. Godd luck!

Dodge grand caravan 2002 se check engine light on. this is the only problem fail inspection. Vehicle run good.

There are so many things that cause a check engine light ot come on that its almost impossible to tell you how to fix it. If you can stop by an Autozone or Advance auto parts store they will usually put a code tester on your car and get the error codes stored in your cars computer. In a lot of cases there are vacuum leaks. Vacuum lines become brittle and crack letting excell air into your intake system. If your gas cap gasket is worn, same thing. You also have a catalytic converter that may be clogged up as well as orygen sensors in the exhaust system that may have failed. There is an exhaust gas recirculator that opens when the computer calls for exhaust gas, as well as a positive crankcase ventilator that may be stopped up. Check engine lights are just an indicator that one or more of these things have quit working.

Gas cap

Try swapping caps with the oil tank--if it fits better, buy a new cap as it was probably improperly molded. If no help, the tank opening is probably small for the same reason. You could try filing the cap threads with a small round file to see if you can make it fit better. Good luck!

The "Check Engine" light is always on and a mechanic ran diagnostic. It was getting a "P0456" code. I checked the gas cap and still problem persists. What do I need to replace now?

The problem with these complex systems is they are nearly impossible to maintain.
The implication is that you have a leak in the gas tank vent.
You could try to find it by pressuring the gas tank with some compressed air, and listening around for hissing.
But it could be the purge valve vaccum sensor is bad.
The best thing to do actually is manually disable the purge valve sensor, plug the purge valve line to the manifold, and allow the vent to open air.

99 lexus es 300 chk engine and trac lock lite on

I had check engine light and TRAC OFF. OBD-II MIL code was P1133 which is Air Fuel Ratio Sensor Response Malfunction and scanned by AutoZone. After disconnecting the battery for 10-15 minutes, the lights went off. I cleaned the gas cap and tightened it firmly. For the last 400 miles, the lights have not come back. When scanning using Snap-on one, no code was detected. I think gas cap was the reason for the lights.

Hard starting will not restart after warmup

Try this: The next time you run the trimmer, and it begins to die, loosen the gas cap. It should start running again. This means that the gas cap is clogged. Clean the holes out of gas cap, or buy a new one. (If this doesn't help, give a more detailed explanation the next time.)
