I dont think all my question made it through. The vehicle will start and run. After refueling it has to sit for 30 min or so. What has happened is I got the computer cleared Everything was on line, then the service engine light and EPC light came back on. Additionally the cruise control quit working again and at various times it sounds like there is rattling in the trunk. You have to fight to get it to start after any refueling. An error message on the dianogstic reading was problem in the Evap system. Ok. There's only a 1000 different things to check in that system. What/where do I go from here?
