check your gas cap, make sure it was on good, and the seal isnt cracked, next common would be the rubber vacuum lines for cracks and leaks. clear the code and see if it comes back. if time is more of a concern than money, you can have it smoke checked they can see where the leak is. it takes a while for the codes to come back by the way so if you clear it and take a short drive it doesnt necessarily mean you got it, it goes by drive cycles
