    there are over 1500 possible codes. you need a shop to do a real diag, not a free code pull to determine the issue and give you a bid.

    If your gas cap is tight and you dont have a hose off the evap purge valve from a quick lube checking your air filter then it is most likely a bad air fuel ratio sensor,These are common on these cars.But you do need to have the code pulled with a scan tool.
