There are so many options that have been mentioned in different threads many times in the past: Garage5, Speed Syndicate, etc...

Also a quick google search brings up possible causes/solutions.

Then once resolved, let us know what the issue was.
lol, I only took it to the shop once so far and I thought they fixed it when I was leaving. Shops aren't open every day, nor can they fit me in every day.
So while I'm waiting for my next appointment, I'm trying things on my own to fix it, including suggestions I'm getting in here.

I expect everything done once and for all tomorrow. Will keep you guys updated.
Thanks for all the help so far.

Evap Purge Solenoid Valve needed to be replaced.

Got charged an arm/leg for the part and labour, but kind of expected it already so


This has been dragged on too long, so I just got them to do the rest of the work after diagnosing it, cause I didn't want to spend any more time trying to hunt down for the part and DIY, in case I get the wrong part or I install it incorrectly, etc

I didn't want to take my car back for a 3rd time.
