i believe it has to do with a leak in the fuel system. this may sound stupid but make sure your gas cap is screwed on tight. i would get a code sometimes when it wasnt all the way on. try that out first, clear the code, and see if it comes back. if it is something else then the code will come right back. otherwise there is a leak in one of the lines which may be hard for you to locate.

Re: e vap system leak

I would get the code read so we can get a better idea of what exactly is wrong in the EVAP system (places like Autozone and Advance Auto will pull the codes for free). It is note-worthy that our cars seem prone to EVAP leaks which is usually caused by the filler pipe (leading into the gas tank) drying out and cracking. The filler pipe is also known to rust (an issue I'm currently faced with). Next time you fill up your car, check to see if there is a strong gas odor or more importantly a gas liquid leak and try and pinpoint where the gas is leaking from.

Other possible causes include the gas cap. Either it is not on properly or the thread has been messed up enough to cause a small leak. Definitely check the gas cap. There is also an EVAP canister under the hood. It is very possible this needs to be replaced (less common) otherwise you may have to follow your fuel lines to make sure there are no pinhole leaks or the likes.
