Before you pay a shop did you already take it to an Auto Parts and they checked it and said it was gas cap? If not, do so it's Free. If you did then follow Kardocs advice.

You have a small pressure leak in the vent system. You may need to take it to a shop and they can do a smoke test to find the leak.

SOURCE: 2005 Acura tl brake replacement

The Brembos that come on Type S/Manual models wear fast. I've changed them at 20,000 miles. They are expensive also.

Non-Type S/Manual models I have seen go 80,000 miles. The biggest factor on brake wear is how the vehicle is driven.

At 50,000 miles I would have them inspected. Depending on where you go, make sure you get an accurate measurement of both pads (inboard and outboard). 2mm is the service limit and about that time the indicators start making noise, but not always. Most indepent shops are going to sell you brake pads at 4mm. That's another 10,000 miles at least you could have driven on them.

Never replace just the brake pads, resurface or replace the rotors. The uneven surfaces of the rotor will cause your new pads to wear incorrectly and possibly cause brake noise. Most aftermarket pads will cause a squeel.

SOURCE: engine light stays o n my 2006 impala

you may have to reset the engine light. These cars are all computerized. Call the dealership and tell them that you had to replace the gas cap as it was faulty and caused your check engine light to come on. Ask them if they can reset the "computer" or if they can tell you how to do it (if that is possible).

Don't know if that will work, but my dad has been in the car business for over 35 years - I tend to listen to most the things he says......

SOURCE: on a 2006 chevy impala it tells you to tighten the gas cap

There is no sensor for a loose gas cap. What is happening is that the evaporative emission system is sensing a "Large Leak". Usually code p0455. The computer sees this as the most probable cause is a loose gas cap depending on several factors it looks at. You would need to clear the code(s) and see if that was the problem. If the light comes back on, then you have a problem in the system that will not let it seal. Possible solenoid problem, leaking hose / line, etc.

SOURCE: ACURA TL 2007 HEAVY NOISE IN THE ENGINE FOR 4 5

There are two mechanical noises you will hear from an engine, lifter noise, wrist pin slap, and rod bearing noise. The only one that will go away, if at all, with engine warm-up, is lifter noise. All assuming of course, the noise is coming from the engine, and not any of the externally mounted accessories.
Have the oil changed, and continue to change every 2000-3000 miles with a good quality oil, maybe the lifter will clear itself. If it does, maintain the oil changes for the next few changes to assure it is cleaning out.
You might also try adding 1-2 pints Berrymen's Chemtool to the oil 200-300 miles before you plan to change the oil.

2002 acura TL-s engine code p1456


Code P1456: EVAP control system leakage (fuel system).
Probable causes:
1. Wire harness. Check for correct voltage, open, short to ground, short to voltage
2. Control unit software in need of updating
3. Faulty PCM or ECM
4. Vacuum leaks. Damaged hoses or improper routing
5. EVAP system. Check canister, valves, or components. (gas cap excluded because you say you replaced it)

Some or all of the above could be the source of the check engine light problem.

2007 range rover check engine light is on! 35,000 miles


Take it to a Shucks auto supply and have them read the code for free before you take it the the dealer and pay large fee. The typical check engine light code comes on when and with that low of miles might be, just not tighten the gas cap enough. Make sure you hear the gas cap click at least 3 times after filling up. It might be that simple, it may take another 100 miles or so but it possibly will clear the code on its own. That's all mine was. When they read the code and they say its fuel related, good chance that it is. FYI, I'm sure your also always using super unleaded and not going to Arco for gas right?? Good Luck.
