I only have 13000 hi-way miles on the vehicle and the light was not on before I discovered the gas cap off.Would the light come on if it was due for an oil change? I change oil at 9500.
Expert:  supertech replied 8 years ago.

If the gas cap was off it will set a code.

 

the code will go away after you start an drive the car like some where between 3-40 times on it own if that all is wrong.

 

This should have clear that code.
