Question about 2005 Scion xA
Misfires when engine is running after 1500 rpms and in gear and when comes to a stop. engine light flashes over 1500 rpms and when in drive. I changed the spark plugs. they were over due. #2 was moist when I pulled it out. what could be causing the misfie. obd2 code saying misfire in 2
I would try swapping coil #2 with on of the other ones and see if the misfire changes to the other cylinder. If it does you have a bad coil. If it stays on cyl.2 check the spark plug wire or fuel injector.

If it isn't the spark plugs then you have a cracked head gasket

SOURCE: Warning lights won't go off.
You need to have a code scanner hooked to the car to find out why the lights are on, if there is an auto zone or advanced auto near you, go there and ask them if they can hook one up, or call around to see who can do it.

I had the same problem. The cause (at least on my box) was a bad charcoal canister and the valve going to it. These go bad on the boxes fairly often. If you "top off" your tank, the overflow spills down into the charcoal canister and it will not function properly. IE: Engine, Trac, and VSC lights come on. It doesnt hurt it to drive with a bad canister, but you will lose mileage and that light will be staring you in the face every time you drive. The parts are pricey, dealer only parts and the canister is about $400. I found a totalled xb with a good canister and nabbed it for $40.....solved my problem. Hope this helps!

Why would you replace a gas cap?
You were told, two EVAP Codes ,and what they were.
Have the vehicle smoke tested and repaired. You have two different size leaks,in that system.
