p0172 & p0175 - pending

Ok so the other day after getting gas, i noticed my gas cap doesn't fully click anymore, and its easily to unscrew now... didn't think of anything so i didn't worry about it too much.

Couple days after that, i was messing around with my CAI, I had to re position it, and re tighten one of the clamps on the hoses, but thats about it....

went and checked if i had any odb codes, and these were currently pending.... cleared them and they still come back...

plugs and boots are only 3-4 months old, o2 sensors are about 2 months old, so i doubt that i need new of anything in that area...

I dont experience any power loss at all, but I have recently noticed that on 2 occasions (not a cold start) when starting the car it would act like it wants to shut off and give low rpm idle, unless i gas it above 1500 rpms for a min, and it would be fine after that, but this rarely happens, but it did happen before twice like 2 months apart.....

Your codes are for the engine running rich. This counts out anything like spark plugs, coils and vacuum leaks. The gas cap also has nothing to do with it. Being that you mentioned you have a CAI the 1st thing I would want to do is put the stock setup back on there and see what happens. More often than not CAI's are useless and only create rich or lean issues unless the vehicle has a custom tune (where it has been ran on a dyno and someone actually tuned it) There are other possibilities such as O2 sensors, MAF sensor and also leaking injectors that can create a rich condition but I'd start with the removing the CAI and go from there.

Yep stock air intake fixed the codes - looks like ill be selling my AFE CAI

edit: I wonder why it took 1 or 2 months for the codes to show up, maybe some extra air had got into it somewhere ?
