i replaced the gas cap and had the computer reset....3 days later the truck told me to tighten the gas cap again. now the check engine light is back on.
Diagnostic code comes up to say emissions leak and was told preferably to change gas cap, but when I did replace the cap, I unhooked the battery thinking it would reset and if the problem had been resolved then the check engine light would not come back on. Not the case, however, because the light came back on and I am again looking for a resolution.
Want cause white smoke come out the tail pipe
Tighten gas cap fault and engine light on
Engine light comes on- attributed to a sensor for emission control
Replaced it but it returned less than a week later
