I was getting a vapor recovery code which suggested checking the gas cap. I had lost my original cap about 2 years ago and bought a replacement from Advance Auto I believe it was also a Stant. Although the cap currently installed looked fine (seals, gaskets, o ring etc) it was the cheapest and easiest repair to try. Bought this cap and noticed it was made quite different than the one purchased before. I didn't reset the code but just installed the new cap to see what happened. About 60 miles later the engine light went out I was reading no codes and all was fine. I'm not sure if the 1st cap went bad, was a design flaw or what but all is fine now and it was a cheap fix.

I purchased this cap less than 3 years ago because I kept getting the engine light and codes for the evap system and faulty gas cap. After some research, I saw that purchasing a new cap was the easiest fix. At first the cap was fine, but after about a year and a half I got the same codes again. Everytime I would have my van checked there would be nothing physically wrong and it was suggested to readjust the cap or purchase a new one. Once I would readjust the codes would disapear for a few months then return, especially when weather began to get colder.
Also, if you like having the cord to hold the cap onto your vehicle I do not recommend this cap. You cannot attach the cord in any way, and drilling a hole in it will only ruin it.

Comments about CARQUEST Caps and Stats Plastic Gas Cap:

Good replacement part for our Jeep, the day after we installed the fuel filler lt went off and hasn't been back. Only downfall is the hole to attach the fuel cap to the stock retainer strap is not there, so you have the possibility of forgetting your cap when refueling.

      • A:

        Regarding an "aftermarket" gas cap, I can think of two reasons:  First, sometimes aftermarket parts are not built with the same quality standards.  I run in to constant quality issues with aftermarket. I don't believe some of these manufacturers actually bolt their parts on to a car and run it for testing purposes.  Although, I think you'll be fine with this aftermarket gas cap.  Secondly, aftermarket gas caps may eliminate the tether that your OEM cap may have... assuming you want to retain this feature.

      I know that the gas cap is not to be drill for the attach strap. I drill a 3/16 deep enough to remove the piece. Will this effect the cap?

        A:

        No, Wregreso11! I can't tell you that you can do that, but we have had customers do that and they have not experienced any problems with the cap. You can drill that just drill past that cover.

      unable to remove the gas cap
      Asked on 4/19/2015 by Jim from Inverness, FL

      1 answer

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Hi Jim, here are few instructions to remove the gas cap from a car. At first unlock the fuel-fill access door. Few cars with electric door lock systems will secure the access door over the gas cap once the car is locked. You may then unlock a door on the car to open the fuel door on such models. Other models have a lever under the dashboard or driver's seat that unlocks the fuel door. Unlock the gas cap and slip the key into the slot on the center of the cap with the teeth toward the outer circle and turn the key clockwise. The lock cylinder will give and allow the key to move. Turn the gas cap counterclockwise and unscrew the cap until it's completely off the threads. You can then replace the cap and tighten it. Simply slip the key into the slot and hold the cap by the still with one hand while turning the key counterclockwise. Finally remove the key and check the lock by trying to open the cap.

    • Q:

      Can a gas cap be screwed in properly and still not seal well enough to keep the "Service Engine" light from coming on? Can they appear to be functioning correctly, but not be?

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Yes, a Check Engine light comes due to various reasons. It could be as serious as a blown head gasket or as simple as a loose gas cap. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
