Possibly the gas cap didn't seal well because of the cold, and once it warmed up, the rubber gasket softened up, and made a better seal. Just a SWAG. The code should be stored for awhile, You can usually pull the code from most auto parts stores for free, or take it to the dealer. Depends on whether you want to spend 5 minutes, or 5 hours !rick7343 said:anybody got any ideas?
Great idea, BUT I'll bet mechanics can make a lot of extra cash "fixing" faulty gas caps ! They would certainly lobby against your idea. ;D ;DNoobNox said:Maybe car makers should have a separate warning light for the gas cap instead of making everyone think their engine is about to explode?
