Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am
Replaced evap canister, purge valve and selenoid
Replacing the gas cap is the only other thing I could think of if there are no leaks on the line and you replaced all the evap/purge components.
Perhaps an issue with the pigtail on the solenoid/sensor or a problem on the wires between the sensor and the computer. See what the readings are with a OBD2 scanner that does more than just pull codes. That might narrow it down.

you should be able to fix it look for a can near the fuel tank that has vacuum hoses coming out of it and you should be able to just buy the bad solenoid

SOURCE: I got a Error Code
P1442 usually gas cap. P1449 usually vent solenoid. P1441 usually always a faulty FTP sensor. Very problematic to Malibu, Grand Am Cavaliers and Aleros. That would be my first area to check. They are also known for poor wiring connections at the Left rear passthru connector to the fuel tank and vent solenoid, but not necessarily for that code.
