Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue
Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Problem

After repeatedly getting a Check Engine light after fueling, I took it to a dealership who informed me that the code that showed up when they hooked it up said that I needed a new gas cap. Well, I paid the big $$ there for the cap and a couple weeks later it came on Again!! This time I took it to my normal oil & tire guy who let me in on the real issue (in my case at least!) I hadn't been tightening the fuel cap enough "clicks"!! I might stop at 2-3 & he said turn til you hear at least 10! Otherwise the vehicle senses that as a "leak" in the fuel system, be it fuel or air/compression. This happens quite often in many other makes/models too! Hope this helps someone!

Check engine light is still on. Just replaced gas cap.
The 'Tighten Gas Gap' came across monitor 2 days ago. I tightened gas gap. The monitor reading went away. This morning, the 'Tighten Gas Cap' came up on my monitor reading again. I turned car off for 1-1/2 - 2 hrs.. When I got back in car, started it up, while driving, the engine light came on. Panicking ..... Called a friend for a car repair persons name & they suggested I google the problem. I did. Yippee!! I found this is a 'problem' w/ this make and model year 2004 Suburban. I tighten the gas cap really, really hard & the engine light is no longer on. Thank you! Thank you! for those who've reported the same challenge.

Check Engine Light due to emissions issue that sounds like this one. Tech ran OBD2 scanner on it and found the code related to a fuel system emissions problem. Gas Cap is suspected.
been there done that

Check engine light stayed on and once the cap was replaced, it stopped.
