check engine light comes on about every 10,000 miles, i'm on the 4th gas cap - is there anything else that can be adjusted?

Same issue. Also have problems filling tank with gas; backs up like it's full when it's not.

Mechanic at the shop says it is "vapor lock" due to a loose fitting gas cap that trips the sensor. I have to have the stupid light reset every 3,000 miles when I have my oil changed.
Yes, the gas cap will cause the light to come on. Replace it when you get the light to see if that is the problem.

My check engine light would come on also because of the gas cap, but by replace the cap it stopped.

Same for me. Have replaced gas cap twice, (I had to have it replaced a few months after I bought the car NE) and now the gas cap is loose again. What angers me is that I have to pay $80.00 to come in and have then hook the car up to the computer to see what the "service engine soon" light is on for!

I have tried multiple gas caps and all seem to set of the light within months. I have tried clicking the cap a certain number of times; my repair shop has used graphite thinking it was maybe dings in the inside of the cap area; and nothing seems to work. any help would be much appreciated! It is soooooo frustrating.

Found the problem to be the gas cap but not until I got the correct one for my truck. They make two gas caps for the 04 Vue depending on the flapper inside the filler neck. If you look and its a plastic one then you need the correct cap for that one if its metal then you need the correct cap for that one. Problem was corrected from then on.
Same as others reporting that the light comes on. Any other way to tun off that light?
