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

    If the the gas cap is not screwed back-on VERY tightly, the CHECK ENGINE light comes on & the gas guage goes crazy. Just turn it SEVERAL times when closing & that seems to do it just fine! If it does go haywire the computer takes about 24 hours to reset.

    "check gas cap" warning keeps coming on. After getting gas I retighten the cap several times. The warning light stays out for couple of miles before coming on again.....and again. Mean while the engine warning light is always on.

    The van was purchased new and at 18,000 miles the engine light started coming on and stays on. I changed the gas cap, but light still stayed on. My husband had this vehicle as a company van. He told the dealership over and over that light stays on while it was under a fleet or lease plan, but they never corrected it. I have tried to talk to dealership, but they said they can't help me because it has too many miles. It is kind of strange that 161,000 miles of the 172,000 they serviced it, but they never took care of the problem. The dealership has records of everything even 7 complaints of engine light staying on, but like I said they never corrected it.

    Gas cap light coming on, checked and tightened the cap and now the engine picture light is on...I see I am not the only one with the issue. Does anyone report any stalling or other running issues, Now I am afraid to drive the van which has been wonderful up to now. It runs fine for me with the exception of having to pump the gas occasionally after it has been started a few times during the day.

    Whenever i fill the tank with gas my check engine light comes on for about a day then goes off. I haven't had it fixed. Just a weird little quirk. Also the indicator on the gas tank goes to empty right after I fill up then slowly goes up to full by the next day.
