Default car stalls and cel?????

Here's the story: hope someone can help

This monrning I go to fill up the tank and after that I go to the store. Go home and stay there for about 1/2 hour. When I get back in the car to go somewhere I start up the car....starts normally but then it just dies. So I say to myself what the F was that??? I turn the key again and it starts normally and then dies right away. So the next time I start the car I give it alittle gas after it turns over..the rpms drop and it idles normally. So basically if I don't give it any gas after I start it up it just dies. So I go on my way and when I get to chruch I check the gas cap and it's alittle lose. So I tighten it. I get to chruch and hour later i go to start the car and it dies again. So i start it and give it a little gas and it idles normally. A Minute later the CEL come on.

First of all let me say that I am going to bring it to the dealer...but I just wanted to see if anyone had any helpful thoughts. The CEl also only came on after I tighten the gas cap and let the car sit for an hour. + The hoses on the little black box in the bottom rear right were not loose.
