Ha! Gave me a great laugh today. The infiniti in my sig is my daily. Back in May I had a CEL for small evap leak. I would clear it and it would come back like clockwork. I checked the basics up top, fuel cap sealing decent and evap purge solenoid activated when i gave it 12v. I cleared it and it would come back, flash forward to July when i actually had time to crawl under and get to the canister and 2 other valves, applied voltage and heard them click. I was out of ideas without a smoke machine. Early this month i noticed the CEL finally turned off, i figured it one of those trip cycles things but its stored in pending/memory. Pulled out my scanner today because i had time, WOW no codes in stored or pending. No codes what so ever. Its like the fault never happened. I checked the readiness monitors, all are green. Obviously i'm happy, i never thought the fault would completely clear itself. I honestly believe the fault to be gas cap related as thats the only thing that could have been tweaked every fill up. I expect this code to come back at one point. My car is a rust belt car, i wouldn't be surprised if something rusted out.
