Replaced gas cap and light still stays on
Check engine light comes on. I get the code read and they tell me it's my gas cap. I've replaced the gas cap and it hasn't fixed the problem.
Back in December, I had my engine light go on. Had the problem checked and I was told that there is a loose or faulty gas cap. Have not replaced gas cap yet.
