Took it to Autozone to check it, they said its in the evap system, something could be clogged or fuel cap. Took to a mechanic, 2nd time he cleared it @ it never comes back on, now. But I told him before he cleared the light, I smelled "gas in the oil" when checking the oil. Im surely thinking he's bypassed something in the circuit to make the light NOT come back on, cause he viewed me as a pest, though I asked him to fix it.?? Few wks later, In any case Now the car whines off and on somtimes kinda loud just from underneath,as it resonates and you cant pinpoint it.. Till the other day when I took it to a muffler shop that put it on the lift and found a egr thing located under @ by the gas tank. He jiggled it @ it quit making the sound. Thinking a solenoid may had been stuck..? Though it,the noise, came back 2 days later, "today." Any Advice or similar happenings that I might can do to FIX Myself. It shifts out fine..
