I would first try to do a hard reset which means disconnecting your battery for 24 hours, that solves more problems than you would imagine.
Good luck.

If you (hopefully) have the key fob (keyless entry remote), try closing the doors, then lock and unlock using the keyless entry. This should reset the security so the vehicle will start.

I suggest replacing the O2 sensor(s). These detect the level of carbon monoxide in the exhaust, and at a certain level the exhaust is then returned to the engine to be reburned, then sent back through the exhaust, catalytic converter, then the muffler.

Take the code type to an auto parts dealer, and verify what the code is specifically referring to.

If the engine was idling (running) rough, also repalce the air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs<-- find out gap setting; plug wires, distributor cap and rotor (if equipped).

Also, if you haven't recently had the fluids changed, have them changed as well, as the filters for each and the gaskets if needed.

NOTE: if you smell an unusual smell coming from your car; the smell of rotten eggs or such, then your catalytic converter may need replaced.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I suggest you try one of those instant download manuals. My nephew bought one for me when my car broke and we could fix it all by ourselves with the manual costing $10. This website reliable-store.com is very good for this.
?Try it.

It could be doing its job, sounds like what you put in tank is problem. Oil change would not cause that. I would not worry unless it keeps going after fuels runs down.

Go to the parts store where you bought the cap. Sometimes the code clears on it's own and sometimes you need to have it reset. If this is not an option disconnect the negative battery cable for a minute. Just as a warning, if you disconnect the battery you will have to reprogram most all of your electronics.

worth checking the fuel tank for holes or there might be some fuel delivery pipes leaking badly. Or it might be an O2 sensor not giving correct signal to ecu thus consuming so much fuel.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It's kinda odd for a replacement part to break so easily. I strongly suggest that you take it in to the dealership and ask if this is a common problem on this car. If few people have the same problem report then it may be considered as a recall.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

A loose or worn out gas cap can cause the check engine light to activate too.
Don't panic, it sometimes takes several days for the light to shut off, just make sure the cap is tight.

Hello- My 03 cts will crank but will not turn over. a few days ago it took several tries to turn over... now it wont turn over at all. i do see any check engine lights on. any ideas?


Might be a problem with your fuel delivery system. Could be as simple as a clogged fuel filter or something more expensive like your fuel pump.

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?
