Hello,

Is your Malfunction Indicator Lamp [MIL] or "check engine" lamp illuminated? If so could you please pull the Direct Trouble Code [DTC] for us. Here is a link below explaining how to do this, if needed:

Please get back to us with what you find out and we can go from there.

This sounds like you have an EVAP issue that is why the expert wanted to run the codes. To me it sounds like the charcoal canister needs to be replaced or a purge solenoid. Please run the codes and get back to us.
