I believe I posted a pic of this pump at one point. It's located inside the passenger side rear wheel well under the plastic shield. Its called a DTML Pump. Worth about $100 and takes about an hour start to finish. Easy job.

If its not a loose gas cap this would be my bet.
Thank you, but do you think that this would send an emissions code?

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
