No I don't have a scanner and I left the gas cap too loose at the
It took about a mile, but the check engine light went on. I was right
near home, so I just went about a mile so I could investigate.
Sure enough, the first thing I checked was the gas cap. (pretty easy
to do since I left the fueling door open).
I screwed the cap back on. (until it made the ratchet sound)
The check engine light stayed on.
I then unscrewed the gas cap and screwed it back in with the car off.
Check engine light was still on.
I heard there is a cycle when the car keeps showing the check engine
light, but you can clear it without a scanner by disconnecting the
battery? I've also heard there are drawbacks to this?
Any input would be appreciated.
