    unless you have a scan tool. then it is a crap shoot. you need the code number and a flow chart. assuming a gas cap is usually wrong with so many components in the evap system.
    assuming it was not on before, i would investigate a leak still at the fuel pump area. make sure the gasket is seated correctly and tight.
