Hi Stewball,

Can you tell me what the trouble code number is?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

NO THEY DID NOT SAY WHAT THE CODE WAS JUST THAT IT INDICATED THAT THE GAS CAP PROBLEM , EITHER LOOSE OR BAD. mAYBE i WILL HAVE TIME TO HAVE IT CHECKED AGAIN TOMORROW.

Expert:  Richard M replied 5 years ago.

Yes, because there is no code that specificly says "gas cap loose". It likely has an "EVAP leak detected". Regardless, you changed the gas cap. Now this indicates a leak elsewhere.

Get the code number if you can.

Do you smell fuel vapors?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

NO I HAVEN'T SMELLED ANY VAPORS. I WILL GET THE CODE NUMBER TOMORROW.
