The auto parts guy is correct. If it indeed is your gas cap. But there is other things it could be as well. If he pulled your codes he probably got a code that means your fuel vapor return has a small leak. which is a gas cap most of the time, but not always.
now this is why i say he is not correct, Your statement about how your getting really bad fuel mileage leads me to say that you have a egr valve problem, which someone with limited knowledge might read as a gas cap malfunction. a bad EGR valve will cause loss of fuel mileage, as well as a running problem that is sometimes hard to notice. do yourself some good and take it to a real shop.
FYI.. in the case of a bad gas cap, most of the time you can fix the problem for free, take a rag with a little fuel on it and rub the dirt and grime off the rubber seal and off the mating surface on the fill tube about once a month. as for the check engine light you dont have to wait for days for the light to go off, just take the car battery out for 30 seconds, reset your radio to the stations you like, and reset your clock.. Check engine light is no longer a bother.. hope this helps

honeslty, not to make it sound like im putting you down, but you need to have a technician fix your jeep. replacement of water pumps are not what they used to be. You can damage your motor very badly if it is not done proper

Sep 22, 2009 (6:51 pm)
My problem is that everytime i would drive or just stay idle for a while in traffic the RPM gage is below 1 and it seems as if its gonna shut off and one point it did. The engine light will come on some days and then other days it wouldnt..The eclamation light neva goes off. I had it serviced already changing all the spark plugs air filters and oil but the problem still continue, plus it burns gas like hell. I really need some idea as to wat may seems to be the problem please thank you.

#4551 of 5134 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Knocking...
Sep 23, 2009 (10:19 pm)
I have a 4.7 that was knocking at 2000+ RPMs, was told to replace main bearings, I did so, the main bearings had no sign of wear, however as i Rotated the crank during removal of the first bearing, both of the thrust bearings fell out, upon visual inspection, both thrust bearings have signs of wear and metal gouging. Is this my problem, and what is a thrust bearing in an engine for?
