Engine Light as a Result of Missing Gas Cap??

Asked by Sep 24, 2013 at 02:48 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I lost my gas cap and drove for 2 days without one. My engine light went on after 1
day, but the engine is running very well. Is it possible the missing gas cap was
responsible for the light?

Thank you...
