THE 'SERVICE ENGINE SOON' LIGHT KE

2001 Lincoln Continental

Computer problem
2001 Lincoln Continental V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 58,652 miles

As I said above, the 'Service Engine Soon' light keeps coming on. And my mechanic buddy has put the diagnostic computer on it several times, and it always comes back with a code pointing to the gas-cap. He rests it, and a couple of weeks later, it's on again. We've checked the gas-cap, nothing wrong, even tried putting on a new cap, still have the problem. My buddy was a Lincoln Service Manager for many years, so he knows what he's doing, but he's baffled by this too. So I thought I'd ask you guys if you've ever run across this problem before?
Thanks,

Did you ever find a resolution to this? I just bought a 2001 Lincoln Continental that has this exact problem. I haven't tried anything yet, but thought you may have some insight by now.

Thanks.
