2001 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70100 miles
got my oil change done this Sunday at local chevron station for my 2001 Nissan Altima (I put valvoline oil). They told me that Fuel Injector needs to be injected and they did it (They injected some liquid. Chevron guy was holding a can from some distance away from car and a tube was connected to one of the pipes that ran very close to the side of the hood near the steering wheel – makes sense?). After that I put gasoline and drove for 50-75 miles on sunday and monday and monday evening, I saw " service engine soon" light on. I showed it to a mechanic on tuesday. He hooked up a machine to my car's computer and came up with a code P0445 - Evap engine emission leak (large). He tightened the gas cap, reset the computer and told me to wait for a day. Now there is no service engine soon light but I am a pretty much convinced that it is not gas cap. I smell fuel when I walk around my car and sometimes even when I am inside driving it with all windows rolled up. I drove around 25 miles so far and did not see the light come on.
Between, When the chevron guys did oil change and fuel injector change, the first time I started my car, I felt it did not start immediately and smoothly as soon as I turned on ignition. Also, the car wobbled a bit before stabilizing.
Pleaasseeeee help me out!
