Check Engine light

7 posts in this topic

I've got a 2000 Ford Ranger and the check engine light came on 2 days ago. Oil pressure looks good, alternator looks good, and engine temp is in the normal range. Anything else I should worry about with this? Would a poorly fit gas cap cause this to come on? I ask because mine seems worn out and doesn't seem to get a good seal.

It would be more then likely emmission related, a gas cap would cause this. Best to bring it in to get what code is in it, just to be safe.

The gas cap could be a culprit, but you should get the code read to see what it is. I think most of the auto parts stores will read the codes for free. I would then post it up here and the experts will chime in.

If not gas cap, DPFE would be my second guess!

Good luck!

I'm going to go out on a limb and vote for lean O2's, both banks!
