Having problems with your 2006 Ford Taurus ?
Gas cap light
\015 The gas cap light came on all of a sudden. I replaced the gas cap already however it is still on. Is there any solution to fix this problem?\015
If the gas cap light is on and the cap is tight / was replaced, you probably have a leak somewhere else on the "EVAP" system. In short this is the system that monitors whether your fuel system is leaking fumes or not (environmental concern). The usual cause for "leaking fumes" is a gas cap that does not seal properly, but your leak may be elsewhere. Piping for this system runs from your gas tank, to your filler neck, all the way to the engine compartment of the car (to a purge tank and solenoid). This system also has piping that lets your engine burn these fumes at regular intervals. Most automobile service garages have equipment to check for leaks in this system.
