    Same issue. Also have problems filling tank with gas; backs up like it's full when it's not.

    Mechanic at the shop says it is "vapor lock" due to a loose fitting gas cap that trips the sensor. I have to have the stupid light reset every 3,000 miles when I have my oil changed.

    Yes, the gas cap will cause the light to come on. Replace it when you get the light to see if that is the problem.

    Check Engine light comes on ALL the time from the gas cap not sealing properly. The two codes earlier in the thread are the same ones I keep getting. I finally just bought an OBDII code checker for about $30 and I reset the light myself as well as verify no other codes are popping up. Replacing cap doesn't seem to solve the problem for long if at all. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated to alleviate what is mostly a nuisance at worst.

    I had just finished filling my gas tank started the car and the check engine light came on. Took it to my mechanic and hooked to computer said Emissions problem. Mechanic said it is more than likely the gas cap because it is a common problem with this model car.
