So everytime I fill up my car I do the whole click click click thing with the gas cap. But after a certain amount of time the CEL comes on. So whenever it comes on feel the gas cap and its on there all the way then I click a few more times. And then after that it goes off after about 20 miles. What the hell is happening...

Hey do you still have your stock headlights? And if you do do you want to sell them

Get a new gas cap. Sometimes the seal goes. If it still happens, get an OBD2 reader and check the codes.

My balt has done that to me already but doesnt throw a CEL it just says CHECK GAS CAP on the information center . Bought a new cap from the local dealer for $21.00 and it hasnt done it since.. also I dont think your cap should click more than once when you turn it . if it does you have forced on and are grinding away the plastic teeth that lock your cap making it more loose .

Also make sure the lip of your filler neck hasn't started to rust. If it has stick a rag in hole and run a fine steel wool on lip until nice and smooth then dab a little grease on lip and gas cap seal.
