gas cap light and now not starting


Asked by Apr 11, 2015 at 11:48 AM about the 2007 Jeep Compass Limited 4X4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The last few days my "gas cap " light has been coming on
but I didn't think anything of it because I hadn't even
touched the gas cap, now it won't start. Not even with a
boost. When I turn the key, the lights and radio come on,
but it won't start.

My answer was terrible. I took it down. I need to look around for more information.

Possible bad, non sealing Gas Cap. Not allowing a fuel line vacuum as needed.
