This answer was rated:

TO; RICHARD THE TOYOTA MAN 02 TOYOTA HIGHLANDER CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON. TRACK OFF AND VSC LIGHTS ON. HAD CODEAS CHECKED, MAY BE GAS CAP LOOSE OR BAD. TIGHTENED CAP CAME BACK OMN IN FEW DAYE. INSTALLED NEW GAS CAP CAME BACK ON I 8 OR 10 DAYS. WHAT DOES THIS INDICATE IS WRONG AND HOW TO REPAIR.

Hi Stewball,

Can you tell me what the trouble code number is?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

NO THEY DID NOT SAY WHAT THE CODE WAS JUST THAT IT INDICATED THAT THE GAS CAP PROBLEM , EITHER LOOSE OR BAD. mAYBE i WILL HAVE TIME TO HAVE IT CHECKED AGAIN TOMORROW.

Yes, because there is no code that specificly says "gas cap loose". It likely has an "EVAP leak detected". Regardless, you changed the gas cap. Now this indicates a leak elsewhere.

Get the code number if you can.

Do you smell fuel vapors?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

NO I HAVEN'T SMELLED ANY VAPORS. I WILL GET THE CODE NUMBER TOMORROW.
