You need to check the purge and vent solenoids for proper operation. You need to check the pressure sensor for out of range ( defective ). You need to check the filler neck for cracks and make sure the clamps are tight. You need to check the vapor lines for loose fit. I've seen at the charcoal cannister where the lines connect it may not be on strait. A smok test will reveal this if its not sealing. You may have a leaking rollover valve or fuel pump seal on top of the tank. You may just have a vacuum leak under the hood, These trucks have an Evap management valve also that can be leaking or out of specs. Look on the emmisions lable or vacuum chart under the hood. This will show you the underhood components.

It is probably a sensor that goes by the gas tank. I belive it is called a Fuel Vent Sensor Circuit. That should fix the problem.

your problem is probably a vacuum hose that goes from the purge valve to the gas tank (crack or broken hose). There should be two of these check both. A broken vacuum line will make the purge valve make a clicking noise that can be mistaken for noisy engine valves.
