Looks like I have to drop my tank anyway. I've been getting the small evap leak code for a while now. Probably once every few months. I'd just clear the codes and be done with it for a few months. A few days ago, I had to get it smogged and reset the codes just before the test. It failed because it had too many open monitors. I didn't even know they checked for open monitors.
I drove it a couple hundred miles and got it retested. You're allowed to have one open monitor. Mine still had one open, but it was the catalytic monitor. The evap monitor was closed and fine. The very next morning, the CEL popped on. Code- Small Evap Leak.
Now, I could just go back to what I was doing and just reset it when it happens, but it seems to be happening more often than before. I know it's not the gas cap. I checked all the evap lines under the hood and followed them back to the tank. Nothing looked obvious, but I reseated all the fittings anyway just to be sure.
So, today is a tank dropping day. It's not a difficult task. It's just time consuming. Ok. Can't think of anything else to delay this, so off to the garage. Later, Jeeps.
