#14 of 16 Check Fuel Cap message flashes
Jan 20, 2009 (9:24 pm)
I am getting a message "Check Fuel Cap". I checked the cap and it was tightly shut. Thoughts on this message?

By checking the cap I assume you made sure it was turned enough to seal it. With the light still on youmay simply need to replace the gas cap as it apparently is not sealing properly. That's the simplest and cheapest explanation and that's where I'd start.

Thanks for the tip. I may follow that path. This morning, I started the car and the sign did not come up. So it must have been a temporary unseating of the cap! I can't imagine how that can happen though!
