    Preston, I think your link is wrong or my computer is screwing up. Getting Mrr23's tire thread.

    OP, Check this page out. It has some information that might point you in the direction of the problem.

    tighten your fuel cap. if the light doesn't go off in a few days replace the cap. if that doesn't take care of it then start looking at the purge valve solenoid.
