P0136?

Yes this can be caused by the gas cap lack or week rubber.

Rate this and replace the gas cap.

P0136 is a O2 sensor circuit malfunction bank1 sensor2,so a bad gas cap wouldn't cause this code,could be faulty or open sensor or faulty connector or wiring.

Your neighbours code reader is useless for this because its encrypted software ,dealer only

    I have an OBDII reader and the codes are not encrypted, you just look in the manual or online and it will tell you it is a circuit malfunction in bank 1 sensor 2 (B1S2).

What are the probable causes of DTC P0136?


There are two sensors on that car, they are installed with a modification to the wiring unless you use OEM, Check your connections but it is most likely a bad upstream sensor. They both should be changed at the same time. They wear out and have a finite life.

I have a 2004 chevy Silverado the engine light came on and has not gone off.what does this mean.


Many different issues or problems cause the check engine light to come on. You have to get the codes out with a code reader. These codes narrow the problem down to specific area. Then only a few parts need to be checked out to see which ones are good or bad. A loose gas cap or a gas cap with a bad seal can cause the check light to come on. This is the first thing to check.

P0136 #11 code


The check engine light will stay on until you reset it with a code reader . Do that and see if any other codes come up.

P0136 on a 95 camry


Hi there:
Both generic codes refer at Oxygen Sensors, an HO2S that responds too slowly is most likely defective. In order to solve it just replace the HO2S; check there description and diagnosis:
- DTC P0136 - O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
- DTC P0153 - O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

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.

Gas cap light and check engine light on 2001 ford taurus ses


Sorry, but there is no "sensor at the fuel cap". Therefore, there is no code that says "sensor at the fuel cap". There is, however, a Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) That indicates a possible problem with the fuel cap.
(HINT: When you want information on codes, it is usually wise to include the code number that you are getting - that way, it can be looked up, instead of GUESSING at what the problem is from a code description that some generic code reader is telling you..)
DTC P0457 is defined by SAE J2012 as "Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (fuel cap loose/off)"

At this point, I am ASSUMING this is the code you got.

This DTC is set when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detects that there is an in-tank pressure drop that is more than 7in. H2O within 30 seconds directly after refueling, or there is excessive purge (fuel Vapor) flow more than .06 lbs. per minute. Possible causes are:
> Fuel filler cap not installed after refueling
> Fuel filler cap loose or cross-threaded

There are other malfunctions that can also cause this code to set, but it will be accompanied by other codes indicating other possible failures.
If there are no other Evaporative Emissions System codes present, then there is most likely a problem with the way your fuel cap was put on the last time you got fuel.

Check your fuel cap and make sure it is on correctly and is tight.

My check engine light came on. The dealership said "filler neck leaking causing evaporative leak." The gas cap also says "loose cap will turn on check engine light." Would like to try a new gas cap but...


sad to say sir that how to clear the code is not easy in manual clearing, you need diagnostic tool to clear the dtc, but some dtc will cleared by 20-50 consecutive warm up if no other trouble code detected by the computer

How to reset the check engine on a 208 chevy


Just disconnect the battery (negative terminal) and turn the headlight switch on for about 15 minutes. This should reset the PCM. Otherwise go to Advance and have them hookup the code reader and reset the codes. Thanks
