The fact that there is no cap alone will cause the 'check engine' light' to come on, I know that to be true with Calif emissions systems and probably other cars

Right, so have the vehicle scanned to the code or codes that are setting off the CEL. This will point you in the right direction instead of guessing what the problem is.
