The EVAP System has a leak and needs to be repaired.
Obviously your mechanic,has not kept up with todays vehicles. EVAP issues are common. I would get a new mechanic, and make sure they have an EVAP Smoke Machine,otherwise their wasting their time and yours.
Also,if your the type of person who rides around 2 years with a check light on,you don't have much interest in what you drive.
I would guess you got at least one other drivabilty issue.
Pull the codes,and have your NEW Mechanic repair properly and SOON

2006 dodge grand caravan check engine light comes on,and the words gas cap comes on the dash as well. I got the oil preasure looked at and it was ok had the gas cap presuer checked and passed so what else...


Part of your vehicle's OBD diagnostic monitoring includes petrol vapour leaks (called the EVAP). So when this message appears, the system has detected a petrol vapour leak somewhere.

At this point, it would be wise to have your fault codes read on your vehicle's OBD computer as it may pinpoint a faulty sensor.

If the sensors prove ok, the most obvious place to look first is the seals on the Gas Cap. Then, everywhere within the petrol pipe line down to the petrol tank, then up to the engine bay.

If you have trouble correcting this problem, some garages have a means of injecting smoke into the EVAP system, to locate leakage points.

2005 dodge grand caravan...engine light on and off, went to autozone diagnostic. replaced upstream 02, last year replaced downstream...engine light came back on. need help!

When "check engine" litgh tun on, the PCM (computer) is warning that some fault code is stored there. Autozone could scanned your PCM and show exactly what fault codes is there; if your O2 sensors was replaced, I assuming that they can see this codes... so, they reset and delete all codes stored there? Scanned the PCM after this change?

Engine light shows a code P0456 (small evap leak) on 2005 Grand Caravan. Replaced gas cap but engine light stays on.

It is likely a leaky hose in the evap system. The chemicals passing through the hose cause it to become brittle, causing cracking. Take a look at this instruction to see if it helps:
LMK if it helps troubleshoot the problem.

Check Engine Light won't go off

If you have an Advance Auto Parts store where ever you are, they will read the code and tell you exactly what to code is and what it means. Any mechanic who "guesses" isn't a mechanic at all - he's a thief. Emissions leak can be any number of things, but not the gas cap!

What does the orange engine light means in my 2008 Caravan.

Hi, this light is signaling an issue the concerns the state of a failed sensor or electrical component. I recommend taking this vehicle to a dealership or local mechanic as soon as possible for a diagnostic run on the ecm. this diagnostic scan will tell you and your mechanic what the specific issue is and, how to fix it.

In most cases, it will be a failed sensor or a failed sensor wire/housing.
