Ok - I read Karen's response 3 times before I figured out what CEL stands for.... I had the same problem when Adam didn't close the gas tank tight enough. It took 2-3 days before the light went off.


oy sorry about going to the mechanic for a CEL.. one thing to note, may want to keep a pulse on any service bulletins that are out for your car, because sometimes CEL's are for waranty work items that you don't have to pay for..

Like on my honda apparently the EGR valve was defective and that would throw the CEL.. ended up needing a replacement part and it was 100% free.

Sometimes also if you start the car without having the gas cap on securely that can throw the CEL unnecessarily.. lots of cars are designed that way these days..
