Can this be the cause if not what do you think it might be and will it hurt the car to drive for a while before replacing the expensive canister?

Charcoal Evap Canister we think is causing the check engine light, traction control and vsc light to come on. We have cleared the codes and cleaned the air intake replaced spark plugs replaced air filter. New gas cap. Been over 100 for almost the whole month or July
