#22 of 321 Dodge 1500 check engine light
Jun 30, 2007 (12:44 am)
2002 Dodge 1500 w/4.3 V6. Got check engine light and had the code downloaded at Auto Zone. The guy said it was for a loose or defective gas cap. I purchased a new cap and disconnected the neg battery cable for awhile. Light went away.... but came back and has stayed on. What else might cause this? What can I check? I'm no auto mechanic... could it be something simple?
Any help is appreciated!

Make sure you have the correct cap. There are two used on the '02 and it will make a difference.
Check the vacuum hoses that go from the fuel tank to the Evaporative Canister. A leak anywhere in the system can cause the same code as a loose or defective gas cap.

CODE 455 Gross leak in evap. system.....Always starts with the gas cap....because its something they can sell you. Check all of the vacuum/evaporative lines. Start at the gas tank....follow the lineover to the canister...follow those lines up to the underhood canister. Somewhere, there is a broken hose and its leaking in air...and reducing the vauum signal...hence, the trouble code.

recently had some driving problems that were similar to ones I had in the past. Trouble code would not stay lit so I could scan at first but now it does. P0304 is the code I'm getting which is a cylinder 4 misfire. Last time I had a similar problem the dealer told me they repaired a rocker that had come loose from the valve/push rod. Before I dig into the valve covers does this sound correct? I have had the truck over 2.5 years and I have not replaced the plugs but I cannot remember if the dealer did this last time. I would appreciate some comments and suggestions so I dont have to make another expensive visit to the dealer.

Even if the plugs were changed you could still have a bad one. A weak ignition coil or a dirty fuel injector can trip the same code, especially if its intermittent.
