I always start with the least expensive/involved items on the diagnostic tree before moving on to the more $$
I think it was the gas cap? But the thing is, I filled up the tank about 5 days prior to the problem and haven't touched it since? any clue why it'd go off? Do our gas caps untighted themselves ?! O.o

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.
