You hav eto see why it's leaking vacuum on your evap system. It's a black box iwth a valve on it by the fueltank. The valve may be staying open. But once it 's fixed you'll need to get the code removed. Also for emmission change oil and filter and drive about 10 miels on eway if you can

Check for the following: Cracked or punctured EVAP canister.

Damaged or disconnected source vacuum line, EVAP purge line, vent hose, for fuel tank vapor line.

Poor connection at PCM.

Inspect harness connectors for backed-out terminals, improper mating, broken lock, damaged terminals, or poor wire connection.

Check for intermittent in circuit.

Check for kinked, pinched or plugged vacuum lines to EVAP purge or fuel tank vapor line. Also check for restrictions.

Faulty or damaged evaporative canister.
