it happened to my Honda Accord yesterday also. Friend of mine used scanner to detect that problem and found out that the part name "Purge system solenoid valve" was broken. I hope this will give you a hint for your car. Thia problem can also be caused by an improperly installed air filter housing. The housing may not be sealed properly on its gaskets or the holding clips may not be set. It is an easy item to check! You may want to check your charcoal canister also...I had the same problem just two month's ago and that was the problem...I have a 99 Eclipse RS Spyder.... it is your roll over valve on the fuel tank i have a 97 rs too it had the same problem I would start with making sure you have a good seal on your gas cap as well (three clicks whenever it is removed and put back on). This is one of the most common causes of this code. Also, check all your vaccum lines for cracks from the gas tank to the evap system. Another cause, as mentioned above, is the purge solenoid sensor.
