The check engine light has come on a few times and I reset the computer and it would stay off for about a week. I decided to go by Auto Zone and have the code pulled. Now that I have the code, how do I figure out what all is part of the "Emission Evaporation Controls System" so that I can find out where this "leak" might be?

My chilton's manual says the gas cap is one of the things in the whole EVAP system. I know a gas cap with a bad seal will turn on the CEL.
