Hello, my name is***** usually means fuel cap, vent solenoid, or purge solenoid in that order. If replacing gas cap didn't help I'd recommend replacing the vent solenoid. If that doesn't help then I'd pay a shop to do a smoke test which will find the leak. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
