You forgot to tighten gas cap. IE, loose gas cap...

GM diagnostics sends you an email telling you your gas cap is loose.


The alternative, your SES light comes on.

You just bought a 40k Camaro. You are going to tell me and the board that you are going to take your 2010 Camaro to the dealer for a loose gas cap after knowing it was for sure 100% a loose gas cap? A loose gas cap, or is the 1 in 1,000,000 chance it was a bad cap WILL NOT cause damage after a few days..if at all ever.

2010 Camaro $40k

Best of Barry Manilow CD $20

Royal pine scented pine tree air freshener 3 pack $3.99

The thought going through the tech's head when you bring him your car after you tightened the gas cap and after 10 of your fellow 2010 Camaro owners (and 1 mechanic) told him it would be fine after a few days and reset....

It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?
