My poor 6 failed its emissions inspection today due to gas cap pressure loss. I know a new cap (warranty) from the dealer will likely take care of it, but has anyone else had this happen? The cap looks fine, car has 42K mi.

My left seat release in the trunk also pulled apart the other day. Time to see the dealer. :sarc:

Happened to me.

After a fill-up, the CEL light tripped a day later. Had it checked, and at first, the dealer just thought the gas cap was loose, tightened it, and reset the light. I always made an effort to "click" the cap a few times, just to make sure it's tight, but shit happens... Filled up again a week later. A day later, same thing. I took it back, and they retested and discovered a small leak in the cap. It was replaced under warranty, and it's the ONLY minor problem I've had in close to two years with my '04.
