Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

    Check engine light seems to be related to the gas cap. I clean the gasket on the gas cap and assured tightness and problem went away. Comes back when the wife refills the gas.

    We had this problem with gas cap starting at about 80.000 miles.

    I had the service engine soon diagnosed by Autozone and they said to replace the gas cap and add fuel injector cleaner. So far it worked.

    Check engine light was on for about a year. I had Auto Zone run their diagnostic and bought a new gas cap and had the O2 sensor replaced. This was good until the next time I filled up the gas tank. The check engine light came right back on.

    My service engine light will come on when the gas cap is not closed correctly. My car will not start because of an ignition problem and my car will not accelerate at times. Ready to trade it in!! :(
