Customer Question

2014 Chrysler 300. The "Engine Malfunction Light" is on but the car displays no other symptoms. The car doesn't have a normal gas cap instead has a rubber seal attached to the fuel door. Do these seals provide a tight enough connection to prevent CEL's?

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. yes the seals are fine. you need to put a code reader on the vehicle to see what the fault codes are.

I don't have an OBD reader but I know from previous experience that a loose gas cap is often the cause of CEL lights. My Chrysler doesn't have a normal "gas cap". Just a rubber seal attached to the lid. I am wondering if that seal is possibly leaking. Will an OBD readout tell me?
Chrysler Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Yes a good one that can check codes for your EVAP system will certainly help. but most problems are better reviled with a shop scanner as they will run live data as well as an active test on the components. The other thing we most frequently use is a smoke machine to reviel any pressure leaks. As you see this system can be quite complex to diagnose . To answer your question about that seal , yes it can if leaking . Is there anything I can do to help you further?

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
