Yes the check engine light will come on because of improper gas cap fit.

Matter of fact that's the #1 reason a CEL will light up. But , it's not the ONLY reason that will light it

Good suggestion Jim. I agree, could prevent something from getting worse = more expensive

How the heck does Chrysler pin-point gas cap, when it's a leak in the EVAP somewhere, but what about, say, a hole in the vapor recovery tube?

Hi Fordnut, don't know about Chryslers but my '08 Grand Marquis has a specific "gas cap light" on the dash. If the cap isn't on properly the light will come on. Maybe Chrysler has that too? -Jim
