Code Help Please

Pulled the code on my check engine light and got a P0442 code. It says small EVAP leak I believe.I checked the gas cap, looks good. I don't see gas leaking or smell any, so I think the filler gromet thing is ok. I heard these are a pain to diagnose, so any help would be great!There is also a clicking noise that comes from my dash/engine area when I drive. It seems random and it can do it one time, two times, or three times in a row. Any idea what this? Thanks in advance!

P0442 is a small leak in the EVAP system. The easiest way to find it is to take it a shop that has a smoke machine designed just for the EVAP system. The dealer will charge about a $100 give or take some.

Damn CrazyMike, thats crazy!... Haha would I assume a show other than a dealer would be a little bit cheaper? Is there anyway it's a faulty sensor or anything like that reading something wrong and then throwing a code? Also, anyone know what this clicking could be!?

There is the possibility of a bad sensor on your gas tank, bit I am telling you that it will be cheaper to got to a shop and have the smoke test done. My 04 V6 has the same problem. I have been researching and hunting and the cheapest way is a smoke test. If you have a chain close to you, like Tires Plus, Raffield Tire Master, Firestone, or even a Sears, they should have the before mentioned smoke machine. To replace the sensor is not easy nor cheap. I do not know what the clicking could be.
