Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

If the check engine light is on there are codes stored in the engine controller. You would need to take it to AutoZone or some other parts store to have the codes checked. They do it for free. Then post them back here. Then I can lead you in the right direction.

I already did that they are saying emissions, but I just had new catalytic converter and manifold put in during August, 2016. When I try my gas cap, If I turn it right there is still some play. Is this normal or should I turn it right and it should be not able to turn any more? My interior door alert comes on and I have to push the button manually to get the door ajar light to gout or other interior lights. I gave all this info to Pearl ealire.

There will be a little play in the gas cap. I would not worry about that.
