In my area Advance Auto does do free code scanning, just an FYI. It is most likely something simple. It's even possible your gas cap was not tightly sealed. Have a garage check this out.

thanks very much. i have an autozone not too far away. i will take it there.


thanks for your reply. my gas cap is a little "giggy" even when it is on correctly. a prior post told me about Auto Zone which is about seven miles away. I do have an Advanced Auto right down the street. I will try it first and see if they offer the free service.
