2003 Subaru Forester 2.5x with a check engine light

Asked by Mar 23, 2016 at 06:14 PM about the 2003 Subaru Forester X

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey Scotty, got a 2003 Subaru Forester 2.5x with a check engine light. I think
the engine code is 495 gas cap. Tried a generic and than put out $30 on a
OEM. It is pretty consistent throwing the code. Seems to happen more when
I filler up the gas! I have had a few times in between fill ups the error does
not occur. But eventually will happen. Heard the vent canister might be full of
gas?  Please help!
