make sure your gas cap is on tightly- clear the code- disconnect the battery and see if it comes back. it may take a while. if it comes back you you need to check all vacuum lines/hoses in your evap emissions system for cracking -dryrottong- etc. a small leak is kinda hard to find on your own. the dealers usually have a smoke machine to find difficult leaks. my 03' 6s light came on last week with the same code. i think it was a loose gas cap.

That what I have been looking at. I have cleared the code but haven't had the chance to drive it to see if it would come back. Thanks. Let me know what you find out.
