Oldsmobile Alero Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue

(17 reports)

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

I had the check engine light come on. My husband took it to an auto shop and the manager asked him if we filled up with gas, which we did. The manager of the shop went out and twisted the gas cap and said that the light would go off soon. The check engine light did go off...now I make sure that I twist the cap several times after filling up with gas. I have not had any problems since then. The best part is that this auto shop did not charge me a penny and knew what the problem was without hooking it up to machines. This auto shop now has all my business, for I know they will not take advantaged of me. -
