The $90 gas cap

Last week the check engine light went on in my car. I immedietly started to panic that the engine was going to drop out of my car at any moment or something equally horrific. Every time I drove it, I would get anxious. We took it in to our favorite car repair place to have it looked at. By the time they ran the check, got the light turned off and replaced the stripped gas cap- $90 gone.

Like I couldn't have found something better to spend it on.

Same thing happened to me. Actually, not entirely true. I read online that a bad seal in the gas cap could cause the light to come on, and since my gas cap is as old as my car (9 years) I replace it. The light went off. Then came back on. So I took it in. $85 later....The new gas cap wasn't tightened all the way.

You should just do what I do, watch the light turn on, and keep watching...A year and a half later, keeeeeeeppp watching...
