Check engine light

Hey I own a 2001 Prelude with 23,000 or so. I've had the car since October and had no problems so far. The other day the light came on and I went to autozone and had them run it. It came back with 4 possible options. The first being the gas cap, the second being the vapor canister, the third and fourth being problems with one of the purge valves. I'm just wondering if anyone else has run into this problem and if so, what is the best way to fix it.... Oh and I re tightened the gas cap and put a light coating of oil on the ring and it didn't work.

Re: Check engine light

I'm assuming they said something about evap. It's most likely the canister. Had the same problem with my Acura CL. Replaced the gas cap and didn't work. Replaced the canister and went away.
