    There could be a 100 reasons; If it is still running good it could be just an EVAP code. Get it scanned and post the codes and we can help.

    If you have a spark tester or insulated pliers you could verify spark at each tower. The wires could also be tested. The easiest thing would to take it to a parts store and see if it is a misfire code. Don't change any parts until it has been verified as to what the cause of the fault.

    Did you scan for an OBD code from the main computer?
