Engine taking a long time to turn over + p0440 and p0441
Lately my '03 Neon has been taking longer than it should to start - spends about 5-8 seconds trying to turn over before starting (which is a long time when you think about it). My check engine light has also come on, telling me the codes p0440 and p0441. I know these basically mean either the gas cap is bad or there's a leak in a hose somewhere.
My question is - could the two problems be related? Could this cause my car to take so long to start?
Any other comments you have about this are also appreciated.

Lol, I had the exact same codes! Then one day I noticed the cel was gone. I checked for the code and it was still there though. If your car is under 100,000 miles, the emissions devices should be covered by Dodge by law.
Anyway, I got lazy about it, and didn't do much about it. the cel would show up for a couple hundred miles, then go away for another couple hundred (but still showed the code). Recently I checked for the codes, and it just said dONE. they went away.
