Hi and thank you for the question. My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. A P0455 is a large Evaporative emissions system leak detected code, as you most likely know. The most common issue is the gas cap, which you replaced. The best way to have this properly diagnosed, is to have your local shop or dealer perform a "smoke" test on the Evap system. Has any other work been performed on the vehicle prior to the light coming on?

Please accept my apologies, the previous message was to a different Denali customer...

before all this started we replaced the water pump and the oil sending unit.

Ok good to know. Have you checked any / all of the evaporative emissions lines on or around the engine to make sure one of the vacuum lines was not left disconnected?
