    Yeah. Could be a few things. Usually, its a problem with the charcoal filter. A small leak could indicate a fotted out rubber hose that runs to or from the purge valve. or it could be a bad purge valve. Canister = $50, valve = $50.

    Good luck.

    Actually alot of times when that code comes up, believe it or not, either the gas cap is bad, or wasn't on all the way.
