Check Engine Light and Trouble Codes

I am the original owner/driver of a 2000 Celica GTS automatic. (I know it's an auto not a 6-sp. I drive in nasty traffic) There are about 63,000 miles on her and she's well maintained. My check engine light keeps coming on. It's been doing this over the past year. I used my friend's Auto X-Ray 5000 diagnostic tool to check the problem. The three codes are:

P0440 Evaporative Emmission Control System Malfunction
P0441 Evaporative Emmission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow
P0440 Evaporative Emmission Control Vent Control Circuit Malfunction.

I took in to the dealer the first time it happened (about a year ago) and they told me that the gas cap was probably loose. It has come one several times since with the same codes. I also started using Mobile 1 oil more than a year ago, but the dealer told me that it shouldn't matter. I bought a replacement OEM gas cap and the same thing still happens.

Is this just an annoying thing that I have to live with for as long as I own the car? confused

By the way, does anyone know if I can purchase OEM HID headlamp assembly from the dealer or someone else, then install it into my Celica without problems? Any suggestions?

I'm from the far, far northern suburbs of Chicago.

Are you from IL?
