Default PO442

This morning on my way to work my service engine soon light came on just after i gave it a little boost of gas. I checked it with the OBD2 code reader and got a PO442 which is (Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected ) (small leak) anyone know what, where and if we can fix this our selves? Any help would be greatley appreciated...

Thanks
Debbie

Try tightening your gas cap. How full is your tank?

WOW! I think you were right Bill. When i went to check the gas cap it just fell off in my hand... Cleared the code now will have to wait and see if it comes back on.
Thanks Bill...
