Thank you, Lee Posted on Mar 05, 2011. Since it is a very small leak detected it could just be the cap or rubber seal on the cap. Apply the parking brake and release the hood latch. I will let you what happened once things start moving. The vehicle was not repaired. ² Make sure that the fuel filler cap is tightened each time the vehicle is refueled. I wish I had a garage or access to a lift, would make things so much easier!! Bought the vehicle with about 30k on it.
I just bought a new cap, and the light didnt go out. I know in Oregon you can't. I immediately put on the flashers while trying to maneuver from the middle lane to the shoulder of the road, after a week at the mechanic he called me to inform me that it could be the crank sensor, which was a known issue with this model vehicle. We have worked hard to design a site that caters to everyones Dodge Caliber Gas Cap needs. Anyone have any guesses as to what's wrong? Used my flashers the entire way home. For example, does it happen when you accelerating, driving on the highway or does it appear at low speeds? Sometimes times this is not easy, or safe to do.
Then in June of 2013, while driving on a four lane highway at approximately 65 miles an hour, the car lost all acceleration, a moment later started a warning beep and the check engine light came on. The engine light is back on today. The vehicle was not repaired. I had the spark plugs replaced that weekend because my dealers repair shop was full. It is currently at 42,600 miles. You could try a small amount of Vaseline on the rubber gas cap gasket.
The dealer could not replicate the problem and could do nothing to fix it. Thank you for the suggestion, I'll take a look at all of that. I went to a local mechanic to ask what was wrong. It's now over 100,000 miles; warranty has long ago expired. Reconnect it and drive it for a while. I took the vehicle to a local autozone to have it diagnost. The failure mileage was 156,000.
The contact also indicated that the check engine sensor light illuminated. The contact also mentioned that the failure recurred and was taken to the dealer several times. If you are unsure about what your diagnostic trouble codes mean; have your Caliber diagnosed by a professional automotive technician. They also had no new computer codes, which was when they realized the power train control module was the problem. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the throttle was faulty. After about 15 minutes, I started the car and limped it home. The failure mileage was 130,000.
Personally I have never before seen the use of parentheses, nor 9 for g's. Very carefully is all I can say. Intermittent Check Engine Light: If the check engine light on your 2008 Caliber is intermittent, try to take note of the conditions when this happens. Since purchasing in Nov 2006 the engine has stalled over 20 times in various situations. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. And, if I get a chance tomorrow, I'll post a picture of what happens when you let the muffler go for a couple weeks while you're on vacation with a deep, but not too loud sound because it cracked down the length of the weld when it hit the cold water I think backing the boat into the lake. It can make a big difference.
Problem still occurred so I left the car at the dealer for them to check the engine. . Both use quick-release hose connections. Yes, the gas cap is on. With a leak that small, the best way to test it is with artificial smoke and pressure. He had the representative from Chrysler to his shop several times regarding the issue. In other words, if you are replacing the left headlight, turn the wheel all the way to the right.
I recently like last week had a fuse replaced because my lighters nor my sunroof worked. Take your car to a parts place and they will usually check and clear your light for free. Then there are little hooks under the tabs. I had a similar problem on my 2007 Buick Lacrosse 3. Having had it happen several times before, I learned to pull over, and shut off the car, and let it set for a few minutes.
If a leak of greater than 0. Neither the dealer nor the manufacturer were notified of the defect. Entering your vehicle information in our Year Make Model selector up top, helps ensure you get an auto part that fits your car, truck or other type of vehicle. Once you tighten or replace the cap, the light should go out after about 100 miles of driving. Also look at your filler neck and insure there are no cracks on it. This is not covered under the 50,000 miles engine and power train warranty because it is not a moving part. Which is located right next to the battery on a little metal bracket.
Then clear the battery by pulling the battery cable from the battery and waiting 10 minutes. In some cases you need to pull over immediately to prevent damage while in others you merely need to tighten you gas cap next time you stop in order to reset the service engine soon light. We love when auto parts experts come to our site and we love when car parts newbies come to our site. I cringe at the thought it's something with one of the lines, or at least, I cringe at the thought that the problem is going to be difficult to find. After a few drive cycles the check engine light disappeared as well and I'm ready to get my emissions passed!! So I took a look at the components, but I didn't take anything apart. I can't seem to get any of that to come off.
