I have this car in the shop right now. They said there is no other issues with the EVAP line. It was the gas cap. Engine is in good health. I am going to drive it and see if the performance issue has been resolved. Thank you for your reply. I was looking for steps that can prevent me from spending tremendous amount of money and time. The above could have been a $15 fix. -
