Ive been told by the Axeman himself it probably the gas cap wich makes sense but the Kia dealer is over one hours drive so I called to see if it is in stock and asked about my problem he said he never sold a gas cap and said twice when code p0442 came up it was the seal around the gas pump that they replaced to fix the problem not sure what to do.

went to autozone and they had two choices of gas caps.

i believe the differences were one was pressureized and it sold for few dollers more.

i bought the cheaper gas cap and it solved the problem of engine light comming on.

i drove few month with out a gas cap in southeren california without any other problems other than engine light staying on.

I wouldnt reccomend it. Kias evap system is pressurized and no gas cap means limited fume release.

And i find it hard to believe he never sold a gas cap. The seals on them suck.
