:p Hi everyone.
I am the proud new owner of a 2001 Rav4. I have only had it a little while but I do really like it alot. The only question I have is the check engine light comes on and Toyota said it was because of the gas cap and it should eventually reset itself. Okay am I such a retard that I cant put a gas cap on correctly or is there a special trick to this????

Thanks for any help

You have to turn the cap till it clicks three times.

If you've been doing that...you can go to any Autozone and they'll read the check engine code for free(something dealers charge $40+ to do).

after a few thousand miles on my rav4...

...my check engine light went on too and the shop merely reset the ecu. i've heard that unplugging the battery for a few seconds and then plugging it back in will do the trick.

Yeah, disconnecting the negative terminal on your battery for a few minutes will reset it. I don't think you should just go resetting it without knowing what it is first though.
