    Need Help!! I have a 99 360 and I am trying to get emission testing done. I have driven the car 200 miles and have done the drive cycle 4 times without success. I had the EVAP light come in as ready and then a few minutes later, it was not ready. This has happened several times already. What can be the cause!? TIA

    Make sure gas cap is tight. If that doesn't fix the problem, then do a smoke test of the EVAP system.

    If the gas cap is good/tight, then a smoke test will reveal the source of the leakage. The roll-over valves and fuel pumps are both sources of potential leaks.
