Code from Autozone P1553
 
My SES came on and decided to take It to a local part store to check it with their reader rather than pay the dealer $200 bucks for it, the code it pushed out was 1553 I've done a little searching and found a couple of things it could be, but the car seems to be running fine, anyone else have/had this code before?

Have you done a search yet?

It seems others have your issue as well

Edit: just Google that code and you will get many hits. It seems it's the VANOS solenoid

Yes I also Google searched and got the same thing, funny thing is, it comes on soon after getting gas, then after I take the cap off and put it back on, within a few hours it seems to go off. Could this code also be the code when the gas cap is not put on properly?

Interesting. I've heard this case before with the gas cap. Someone else replace the gas capw with a new one but it didnt cure the problem. Put the old one back on and no problems every since.

But if its the VANOS solenoid thats completely different
