That code is for a leak in the EVAP system which is the fuel tank. The most common cause is leaving the gas cap loose. Tighten the gas cap and clear the codes and see if it comes back.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
