At any rate, we'll need that code in order to begin to understand what is taking place with your car. If the EVAP system can't hold vacum then the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will set a DTC. It will clear after so many start cycles, but the source of the problem has to be identified & corrected first. The problem may or may not be the gas cap. I'm thinking it'* not the gas cap in your case, but somewhere else in the system.
