Check engine light - gas cap issues - purge solenoid issue - Anyone else?
I have a 2012 I4 Terrain and have been dealing with some minor yet annoying problems. I'm wondering if anyone else is having (had) issues with their Terrains.
A little background. Around January 10th, my check engine light came on. After calling the dealer and them telling me to remove my gas cap and re-install it, then to wait for 4 days for it to reset, I did just that. 4 days later my check engine light is still on. I called the dealer and set up an appointment. After an hour at the dealer they stated the gas cap wasn't sealing properly which was throwing code: P0442. They replaced the gas cap and cleared the code. Mind you this is at 10,500 miles.
First week in March the check engine light came back on. I immediately removed and re-installed the gas cap then waiting for 4 days. On the 4th day I was notified on my DIC that I need to check my gas cap. (this didn't happen the first time). So I removed and re-installed it again. A couple days later it was still on and I called the dealer again. Dropped it off at the dealer on a Saturday and was called about 2 hours later stating that it was the purge solenoid and code: P0442. They replaced the purge solenoid and reset the code.
Guess what? 2 weeks later (about 400 miles) the check engine light came on again. Thoroughly frustrated, I called the dealer and set up an appointment. Dropped it off the night before and got a call mid-day the next day. They stated they read a code: P0455 with a large evap leak. Did a smoke test and found the gas cap was the cause. They replaced the gas cap and re-ran the smoke test. It completed successfully and they cleared the code.
Let me remind you that I've never owned an American car until my Terrain. I've always had honda's and subarus. I've never had a brand new car until this, however all my older cars never had as many problems even with over 100K miles.
Has anyone else dealt with these issues? Every time I got the code I had not filled my car up in a week or more. I would think that the code would appear right after a fill-up if the cap wasn't sealing properly. Is there something else that could be screwed up? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
