Since it came on a few mo ago.....I took it in to get svc'd and they tested it w/the diagnostic. It read that there was something wrong w/the emissions. I ordered it and then they put it on reset the computer and it still showed emissions. I have downloaded the codes and am goin to attempt to clear it myself. These damn computers!!:smack

The fuel cap is part of the emissions system. The brand of oil won't cause that.

How much did the dealer charge you for the emission? Was it alot of labor to swap the emission with another one?

I know I paid about $1300 for one of those a few years back, granted it was on a VW bug so I'm not sure if the cost is the same.
