Fairly complicated diagnosis most common is leak at filler cap if not here is the valve you need to replace in the diagrams below. The code is a evap canister purge valve malfunction. Replace the purge valve. It's behind the right headlights, Make sure it's pluggen in, and if it is Unplug it and replug it, go for a ride, if the code stays, replace it.

PURPOSE
The Evaporative Emission (EVAP) canister purge valve is in-line with the evaporative emissions canister and controls the flow of fuel vapors out of the evaporative emissions canister

OPERATION
The EVAP canister purge valve is normally closed. When the engine is shut OFF, vapors from the fuel tank flow into the evaporative emissions canister. After the engine is started, the evaporative emission canister purge valve is engaged and opens, purging the fuel vapors into the engine. With the evaporative emission canister purge valve open, vapors from the fuel tank are routed directly into the engine.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what happens.
