Every time I drive on a rough (dirt/rock) road, I get a malfunction indicator the next time I start the van. I still need to narrow it down to which cap it is, but its either the gas or DEF cap.. as soon as I remove and replace both and restart the van, the light is cleared.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Odd as I would think neither would need to be run at a vaccuum like a gas vehicle, are you saying they are? What is the code?

I haven't pulled the code as I don't have a scan tool.. My first line of defense when I see an indicator light is to make sure all caps (including under the hood) are nice and secure.

By process of elimination I figured out its either the gas or DEF cap (most likely the gas cap I think).

I think even the diesel has a sensor on the fuel cap to prevent you from driving around leaking diesel fuel all over the road.

Stop into an AutoZone or other parts place and borrow their ODB2 reader. Let us know. There are many variables and though you seem to have it nailed down a reader will tell.
