Loose Gas Cap
Slightly off topic, but somewhat relevant. How many times have you read in this or other forums about loosening the gas cap to check if the fuel vent is clogged?
My regular ride is a 97 F-150 kinda beat up (like me) but runs great (not like me). I got in it the other day and started it and noticed the "check engine light" was on. Hmmm, checked for loose hoses and things, didn't see anything obvious so dropped it at my usual mechanics. He called me a couple of hours later and asked how long I'd had it? "Since 97." He laughed and said "it was a loose gas cap." No, I wasn't checking it for fuel vent. How many times have I put gas in that and tightened the cap properly?
You gotta love technology-sometimes......
