ImpalaWhile undergoing many facelifts in its history, the Impala has proved itself to both civilians and police forces as one of the most capable 4-door cars GM has ever offered. Currently moving towards its 10th generation the Impala is one of the longest lasting and popular models.
I have a check engine light thats been on for a few weeks. I took my car to get a diagnostic and the code is the same one you get when your gas cap is not on tight. I make sure the cap is on tight and I even bought new one from the dealer. 3 weeks later... the check engine light is still on and its still giving the same code. It not the gas cap, what else could this be?

I'm in the same boat with my '03 Impala. I did however get the problem figured out......It's the fuel tank purge solinoid stuck open. My question is, does anyone here know where on the car this solenoid is? The local dealers won't give this information out. Thanks.

It's an EVAP code which means something in the EVAP system is leaking. Could be a solenoid stuck open or soemthing like that like the guy above, loose gas cap, cracked or leaking charcoal canister, etc.
I don't know how to check any of this stuff at home but at dealerships we use a smoke machine that produces smoke and then we check for leaks.
