Tighten gas cap message, replaced gas cap, had emission leak fixed, had termastat leak fixed, still getting tighten gas cap message


"Tighten gas cap" means
  1. That there is an air in-leak somewhere in the vapor recovery system of the car. Hoses and hose connections is a suspect place. So is the electric carbon canister vent valve. OR
  2. It also can mean out of spec gasoline from the discount gas station.
If this was my car I would:
  1. Top up with some decent gasoline.
  2. Have the local shop clear the code and see if it comes back. Maybe do this several times until I am sure all the suspect gasoline is gone.
  3. If it does, and as a last (expensive) resort, have the shop or dealer "smoke test" the emission system for leaks.
Good luck.

Peugeot code p3011


This is a generic warning message on Peugeot and Citroen cars.

It generally means that there is a fault within the emissions circuit. However it does not necessarily mean that there is a fault with the CAT or lambda sensors.

It could be one of many sensors or faults that causes the ECU to detect a fault and could led to this error message been displayed.
p3011 = fuel pump relay short to positive

But my advice is to clear the fault code. If it appears again then change the fuel filter and go from there. If the problem persist then as I said chec your emission circuit.

What does it mean when a check engine appears while the car is running? Many thanks for your answer


That light means , something is wrong with emission or powertrain control components.
Proper scaner needs to be used to identify the problem.
If you still under warranty it should be taken care of by dealer , free of charge.

Engine service requaird light what does this mean?


this usually indicates to a emission fault,the feedbacks to the ecm are outside the preset parameters,find the code that is associated with this message,a p plus a 4 digit code,p1132 for example,this will narrow down the area that is the source,word of warning ,dont jump to conclusion given what the code that is indicated,as for example air or vacuum leak in emission control area could be all that is wrong when a fault in a 02 sensor or mass flow sensor is indicated,find a mate or a local mechanic that has a scan tool to retreive p code,dont delete before you take down the number or you need to wait till message comes up again good luck

2004 DODGE DURANGO, 5,9L ENGINE


the message is appearing because a sensor in the transmission, usually in the transmission fluid, detects higher than normal temperatures which is usually a result of increased friction which isnt good. I would get the sensor checked before you get the transmission worked on.
