Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought a 2004 Jeep Cherokee. Sometimes the check engine light is on and then sometimes its back off again. The owner I bought from had mentioned that it needs a upper control arm could that be why its on?

No clue, you need to scan the Truck for the codes. Post the 4 digit codes bad here and we'll go from there. Most local auto parts stores will scan for free.

I just read that a loose gas cap could cause this problem
