Sometimes when the gas cap gets left off, it sets a code and turns on the check engine light. if the problem returns, it very well could be the egr valve....they tend to have a build up of carbon in the valve and can stick open.this problem can cause a rough idle, hesitation and stalling. you can remove the valve and use a screwdriver , with a torx bit i think, and turn the inside of the valve to break up the carbon deposits...should fix it, but with no code its hard to tell exactly what the problem is.

chech engine light is letting you know that the idle air valve has been disconnected. looks like you have a bad idle air valve.
