On another note, I have an ongoing check engine/gas cap light issue. I have gotten a vacuum leak fixed, bought a new gas cap and had the valve cover replaced that I was told, as an educated guess, was the problem. After I had the valve cover replaced with a brand new one, I drove it for a few days with no issues. I then drove to Indianapolis which is about a 4 hour trip from my residence. The trip there was no problem and I arrived Thursday evening with no issues. The next day, Friday, the gas cap light came on. When I shut the car off and got back in a couple hours later, the light did not come on. The next day (Saturday) while driving on the highway for about 30 minutes, the check engine light reappeared and has been on ever since. The past 2 mornings the gas cap light has joined the check engine light as I have about an hour drive to work. It has not appeared on the way home for some reason, but the check engine light has been constant since Saturday, so 5 days and counting. It is not blinking or anything, just a solid check engine light. I don't have any error codes as I lost them, but I do know when it was coming on the first time, the codes were emissions related. Any suggestions? Thank you for your time.
