Check Engine Light

Recommended Posts

2006 Silverado  When ever I fill it the light comes on, but then will go out once I get to 3/4 tank and stay out. If I add gas and don't put in more than 3/4 tank it remains out. 

Any ideas --I'm thinking gas cap.

Yep, gas cap needs to be replaced.

 

I bought a used Blazer once days before a Deer opener. Never had a GM before that. I packed it up and went to fill it up. A few blocks from the station the check eng light goes off! 😣

Buzzed over to a near by dealer and lucky to get in.  The tech writing up the work order once he found out I just got it said, let me check something. Open the gas fill cover and turned the cap a few times. He said it should be fine now! ☺️

Thanks I thought it may the fuel cap, next time before I fill I'll crank the cap a few times and see what happens.

Drives me nuts even thought oil pressure and temp is fine. I may try it tomorrow I'm between 1/2 and 3/4 and all is fine.

Could always stop by an auto parts store that offers free code reading for check engine light....O'Reilly is one that does, as I recall.    Also Advance Auto Parts...    Even a normal service place might.

 Thanks  I'll do that. Stop at O'Reilly and see what they say.

It will be interesting to hear what it is.

Did  O'Reilly (or who ever) reset the light warning (?) system?  If so, give a quite a few miles to see if it comes back on.  Had a light come on, they reset the system and later the light came back on.

No, we just put a new cap on and I went and filled with gas and it stayed off and has remained off. It would come on when I had 3/4 + tank of fuel and go out when I had less than 3/4 tank. All is good so far, but I haven't put 50 miles on.

Put new fuel cap on and filled tank- no light came on, so problem seems to be solved, have to see if anything changes.

 

How's it so far? A buddy of mine got a Silverado who's experiencing the same. I came over last weekend to help him install the new rails, lund truck bed cover and rack for kayak mount and took it for a test drive/refill gas. CEL lit on for about a minute and turned off. He said it happened twice last month, it got a new cap last September.

No problems with it, light has stayed off ever since I put a new fuel lid on.

I suppose in the next week it will show up again--then again maybe not.

    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
    • The window on AIX that I read Usenet News on was....   I started on computers with punch cards, then moved up to a 2260 and MTMT (multiple terminal monitor task) which was an IBM Rochester homegrown thing for running terminals attached to the 360/65 we had at the time.   Actual first computer I ever used was a CDC 1604 at the U of MN.....
    • There I might have made it a little easier to read😁    Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
