It does seem like it would be a fussy gas cap. But don't guess. Go to autozone and get them to check the codes in the computer (they do this for free) post the codes here and hopefully one of the pros can tell you what it means (BTW it could be the O2 sensor and it could be dozens of other things so don't throw parts at
