Question Asked: Check engine light with check gas cap light -- recurring
November 06, 2013, 09:05 AM
After reading this forum, I am wondering if my Tribute's problem is the EGR. I have taken car to dealer and 2-3 other mechanics to fix recurring check engine and gas cap error lights. Over the past 3 or so years, I have bought 2 gas caps and the error still occurs. No one seems to be able to figure it out. Now my car is hesitating a little when I accelerate, too. (Not sure if this is related.)So here's what happens: I get the check engine and gas cap lights cleared every year for inspection, then I drive it abt. 75 miles (per mechanic's direction), then I pass inspection, then within the month the lights come back on. It's ridiculous! But nobody has been able to fix it and they look at me like I am a dumb girl when I say it's NOT the gas cap! So does this sound like an EGR issue and if so, what should I tell the mechanic to do/check?
