Our 2000 Toyota Echo's check engine light came on. Our code key search said it was evaporative emission system. So what part needs to be replaced? I called O'Reiley and they said it was a factory or salvage part.

    If you leave the Gas Cap loose it will give you this trouble code before replacing anything i would check the gas cap clear the codes and if it comes back on you will have to check the Evap system to see where the leak is coming from you can achieve this with a smoke machine tester.
