I'm driving home and all of a sudden my CHECK ENGINE light comes on. My heart just dropped because 2 days before this I took my car to .......... i know i know..... Jiffy Lube...............

First thing I'm thinking is Jiffy Lube f****D something up. I head to AUTOZONE ASAP to have them pull the code. 1st Autozone I go to they weren't able to get a link for some reason.

Head to the 2nd Autozone. He links the code scanner and lets out a chuckle. "Mass Vacum Leak", the only word that went through my head was "leak"

He tells me why don't you check you gas cap............ It was only on 3/4's of the way and it caused my check engine light to come on.


Autozone

The fuel cap being loose would not cause a fault code of MASS VACUUM LEAK,

it would cause a code of SMALL EVAP LEAK.
