Buick LaCrosse Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue
Buick LaCrosse Problem
Average Mileage: 50,766 mi (10,200 mi - 80,000 mi)
Check engine light stayed on. Remote diagnostic (Onstar)indicated that problem was with the gas cap. Took car to dealer, told them and they replaced the cap. Problem resolved.

Check gas cap light keeps coming on intermittently and now check engine light on. Replaced gas cap
and okay for awhile. Both engine light and check gas cap light went off. Now, back on again.
First check gas cap (which I did) and now engine light.

I have selected "me too" to 3 other common problems with the Lacrosse. I contacted buick for assistance on repairs and they said Garber Buick in Saginaw Michigan would only agree to $50 assistance on a $443 repair bill. How sad! But they had no problem taking bail out assistance from my tax paying money!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had this issue too. Mechanic found the problem.

Check engine light is on and the dash reads "Tighten Gas Cap" . I've tightened the gas cap several times I'm taking the car to the dealer tomorrow.

Check engine light and loose gas cap information came on at same time - but cap was tight. Dealer had better price on cap than parts stores. Issue solved.
