I was having the same problem. We have an 04.I took the bed off.It was located on the frame in front of the spare tire.We took the canister off & hooked it up to a 12 volt charger to see if it was opening &closing.Staying closed all the time.There's a spring on the inside.We took it out & put it on the other side to hold the vent open all the time.Fixed the problem & didn't cost a penny.Hope this helps.

Have you had anyone look at the vehicle since the concern started? Did you have any shifting concerns before going to the car wash? Thank you,

#28 of 46 gas cap leak repair
Mar 23, 2011 (9:05 am)
The check engine light and fuel cap light was always on in my 2004 Chevy Colorado. I was tired of spending the money on gas caps, and no one could figure out the problem in Michigan.
I recently moved to Texas where they have the emissions test. The truck failed due to a leak in the ***** evaporative emission control system*****
The repair facility had to smoke the system to find the leak. They replaced the evap cannister ($200 for part??) and everything is working fine at the moment, no fuel cap or check engine light.
now just set back and wait for the next repair

Very interesting... I just acquired a 2004 Colorado with the I-5 motor. It too is throwing the "Check fuel cap" code. Sometimes it will throw on the check engine light, and then switch over to the "check fuel cap" code. It usually only happens if I let the truck idle for a few minutes before driving off.
It will go away if I shut the truck off and then restart it. But now I am curious as to what this is? It sounds like it really isnt the fuel cap, but something else. It hasnt affected drive-ability yet, but I don't really want it too either. I also don't have a ton of money to throw at it. So if I can do something on my own without spending tons of money on parts that is what I am looking for.

#31 of 46 Fuel cap, tank overflow
Apr 01, 2011 (7:26 am)
I purchased an '04 Colorado last August. It has overflowed at the pump every time I've not manually shut off. Anyhow, I found this discussion, decided to call Chevrolet and found out that there is an extended coverage on the gas cap- even to secondary owners with expired warranties. Call Chevy at 1-800-630-2438. They will get you in to your local dealership for a look. Hope this helps some of you.
