Question about 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan
Without knowing what the actual code is, I can only give you general info.
No trouble code tells the mechanic what the problem is. Only what to test or check. So O'Reilly was wrong if they said the code told them the injectors were clogged. And AutoZone was not right in saying the sensor is bad, the sensor MAY be bad.
The trouble codes direct the mechanic as to what to check by saying the sensor is not sending the right data or signal, or the computer can not control a component correctly. In your case, the EGR sensor measures pressure and flow for the EGR valve. The valve may be faulty, or the sensor, or a hose in between.
So the EGR system would need to be checked out to determine if a component needs to be replaced or not.

Your problem is in the evaporative emission system which is designed to prevent the escape of fuel vapors from the fuel system. Leaks in the system, even small ones, can allow fuel vapors to escape into the atmosphere. The light coming on can be caused by one of the following:
1. Defective or loose fuel cap
2. EVAP canister or hose cracked- not connected
3. Purge or vent solenoid defective
4. Vacuum leak at engine Government regulations require on-board testing to make sure that the evaporative (EVAP) system is functioning properly. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage. It also performs self-diagnostics. You have tried the easy fix, the gas cap. Finding the leak now will require special equipment and testing procedures, might be better left to a professional.
Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!
