If the CEl keeps coming back on after you clear it, you have a fault code/codes stored in memory. No use guessing what the issue is. Have the car scanned for fault codes and post back what they are and we can help further.


Yes take it to any auto parts store they will do it for free.


...OR...take it to a profesional technician who does not guess and who uses the DTC's and other diagnostic information to determine the actual root cause of the trouble code...usually you save money over other options in the long run.


..or you could do that

not sure if you have done this yet,but try to clean around the fuel filler cap and filler pipe edge,sometimes it is a dirty seal or the gas cap has gone bad and you only need to replace it,it has worked for me a few times.
