Honda Civic: "CHECK ENGINE" light on

My son came to me last night, says my car have problem with Check Engine light on along with "'Maint" and "SRS" lights. I questioned him about driverability problem and what fuel you use? He replied me, I use 91 fuel and feel the engine runs rough. I ask him did you tight a gas cap? He says yes I tight it like feel one click. I don't have my scan tool with me at home right now. I maybe go to my work to grab my scan tool later......

I was told to 3 click my gas cap (2009 Sentra).
My daughter had the light come on recently & knew to check the gas cap & thought it was on tight enough. She took it to her mechanic & he determined that it was the gas cap. He actually replaced the gas cap @ no charge (he's her ex-bf's father).

I'm not going to get my scan tool until tomorrow cuz he need his car for work. I asked him, did you see "Check Engine" light flashing? He replied nope. I told him it's ok to drive.. First time I see C/E light on since purchased this car about eight years ago, also had "Air Bag" light on before. His car is a 2003 Civc EX couple. About 95k miles on it. I feel this car have EVAP code but can't confirm it without a scan tool.

That's what I feel the gas cap or faulty EVAP canister is problem. Gas cap is under EVAP system. I can't wait to pull trouble codes maybe EVAP code(s) such as P0440 or P0455 until tomorrow. One bother me is he says rough engine running like I say what's up with rough running? I did adjust the valves and changed new spark plugs last fall or he use low grade fuel or never tell me that he use cheap gas.

I am American guy and support American made vehicle. That is one reason why I have Ford F-250. Smaller cars, many of them actually made by foreign countries even though it was branded as American.

No American branded cars are 100% made in America. Parts can be made in China or other countries. If it was 100% made in america, prices would be much more expensive.

Yes, I saw "Made in China" label on an engine management wiring harness in a 2005 Honda Civic when I transfer the engine parts to an used engine due to cracked engine block about 2 years ago. This Civic is built in America according to VIN.

Read again. Why do you think I choose F-250? This is because it is one of few vehicles that was mostly made in America, I know about cars and thus why I am not too keen about cars. Truck is in my blood.

Why not gift for your son too?

First, Bluetooth for Android only and WIFI for iPhone only. So what kind of mobile your son and wife have?


I gifted scan tool to my father last Christmas.
OBD II / EOBD Code Scanner - Save Big on this Code Scanner It was on sale for $45.

So family won't ask me anymore. They alway ask me to check their BMW's code again and again.

I took my 2 scan tools from my tool box today, heading home. After supper time, I plug Autel AL510 into OBDII jack, found only one trouble code. It is P1456 EVAP System Leak Detected (Fuel Tank System). Freeze Frame in Autel scan's screen is not really accurate snapshot information especially in engine coolant temperature and vehicle speed as I demonstrate my son to reading a freeze frame. I try on my another old SnapOn scan tool to connect it, got same code P1456 and real snapshot, told my son that I think it is a gas cap. He open a gas lid, he removed a cap, examine it then show me a cracked rubber O ring in a gas cap. I told him this car is ok to drive until I get a new gas cap to replace it and clear code...

How Americans Can Buy American
Even the pistons, camshafts, connecting rods, etc? What parts of the truck is made in other countries? That's a mystery. Not many people want to buy a brand new $40,000 truck. Blame it on unionized jobs.

My truck engine was made by International, and I believe it was built in Alabama. Most countries do not have roads wide enough for my truck to fit in and that is one reason why it is not popular in the rest of the world. Only Ranger still makes overseas but not here in America anymore, because ranger is a small pu truck version. We don't see new here anymore. There is reason behind this, small pu truck and larger truck MPG is close to each other. I found it the hard way. I realize after owning third S-10. I missed the first S-10 (1983), the best I ever own.


Psst, if my truck was brand new, it will have MSRP at $64,000. That is the top of line truck. I showed the window sticker to my son last night and he was shocked to see the MSRP. LOL

$40K is average for truck.

Some body parts from Canada or Mexico are imported to USA to assemble the vehicles

Yeah, even the semi trucks are smaller in other countries and mostly cabover types.

I saw a Chevy Silverado 4 door truck costing $57,000 that was brand new delivered to Enterprise Rent a Car. Yea, not surprised at all.

I used work for MAXXFORCE as simple engine performance like O2, sensors, full service, scan tool, etc.

Around 50% of them made in USA and other made in Germany, Brazil, etc.

I don't like aftermarket front bumper imported from Mexico. It was almost looking like blend part, cheap and not perfect fit my car. I use to buy real factory front bumper from dealer. It's expensive than aftermarket price.
