    Every time I turn on my 04XLT flex fuel, the dashboard says check fuel cap, then it says check gauges. I've already bought a Ford gas cap from the dealership and replaced it. The code still comes up every time I turn the truck on and the engine light comes on as well. Idk what is wrong with my Max. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I think you have to drop the spare tire. The canister is between the spare tire and the bottom of the bed.

    you need to have a shop scan it for the code and let us know. some auto parts scan for free. It could be a hose is off or something else.
