    Just curious- my 05 DC SR5 auto has around 50k miles on it. The check engine light came on a week ago, so after checking the obvious (oil, breather, etc.) I took it to an auto parts store for a readout. They came up with a fuel system leak or abnormal pressure, and suggested I replace the gas cap. I did this, and 200 miles later the check light is still on. Anyone have any ideas?

    Not uncommon.... sometimes on the 1st gen trucks (that I remember), you'd get a check engine light and all you needed to do was open the gas cap and put it back on.

    Did they tell you what the code was? What was it?

    Did you do any research online for that paticular code? There's probably lots of information out there....

    Give us a code....
