05 EGT - CEL - evap codes.

On my 05 Elantra I keep Getting a Check Engine Light. I'd thought it was a loose gas cap the first 2 times <1000 miles Total on car>. Both earlier
times 3-4 Highway runs Cleard the CEL. Since it has gone on twice more...After the third time I brought it to the dealer. Was told it was a evap code and a connector needed to be rewired. Ok so far so good. Now 2 days after this the CEL Lights again. Each time the CEL has gone on it was After a few Local runs and about 3-4 minutes after start up. So any good ideas about what it might be..... Anyone... Hyundaitech?

Do you know the trouble code? Looking for something in the format P####.

Was told by the tech that it was a evap code and he'd found a bad connector......and 2 days later the CEL was on again. Was given the impression that it wasn't a code that pinpointed the problem. Was told today at dealer to bring it in early as it probably going to be a bear to figure out. As I was there 4 hours tuesday I'd get priority this time..... That and that I've only had it 6 weeks.

Unfortunately I can't give you much info without knowing the code. At this point, it could be anything. Even if we limit it to the evap. system, the number of possible causes is still staggering.

I take it in monday morning...Hope that it'll get fix this time.
I had just thought that as the cycle that turned it on was repeated ie.... first 5 min of operation it might narrow the field a bit.

Andrew, Hyundaitech asked you for the specific diagnostic code.
I'll jump in with a suggestion: if you live near a Schucks, Kragenk, or Checker store, you may still be able to buy an Innova code reader on sale -- I'm almost positive that the sale ends tomorrow -- prices good through 3/26. The rebate's good until 4/11. Both give you the product for a cool $100 out here in the west.
I think that it's great for people to carry one of these. If you had one, you could have answered Hyundaitech's question and he might have been able to reduce the many possibilities. Having a code reader provides the driver with a decent amount of self-sufficiency -- at least some information about what's wrong. It also would allow you to call a mechanic or the dealer's service department and say, for example, "I'm reading a code U-2476." And the service writer answers, "Oh, that's your imogenerational alpha-duopulex frame wobbulator. They go bad a lot on the '98s. We've got a low-cost standard fix for that -- you can be in and out of here in two hours." Is that worth a hundred bucks?
Note that this product is not a professional "scan tool." These are out of financial reach of most of us; they show much more detail as to the exact cause or the trouble code. As a non-professional, I'm somewhat in awe of the OBD-II diagnostic system -- it's very sophisticated and very elaborate.
Hyundaitech, if I've mis-stated anything, please correct me here.
