GOT A NEW CAP FOR GAS TANK, ISSUE REMAINS
LOOSE GAS CAP LIGHT COMES ON OFTEN, I CHECK IT AND IT'S TIGHT, SO FIGURE THAT THE GAS CAP IN JUST WORN.
Never fixed. Light stays on. I just ignore it.
Engine light code indicated loose gas cap - replace. I have replaced it 3 times parts store caps and oem caps. Still get light about every 6 months. When I open gas cap, gas tank is pressurized!
