Although I recommend you buy a Haynes service manual for your Dodge, I think you will find the canister attached to the firewall or one of the fender wells.
Most of them look a lot like an overgrown spam can and it will have two connections on it.

check gas cap and make sure on good, if possible find another one to try on car to see if that works clear codes before trying(take neg cable off battery for approx ten minute) or might have leak in vaccume line or canister

The best way to find these leaks in these systems now adays, is to take it somewhere that does smoke tests. What they do is inject smoke into the system and if there is any little leak the smoke will come out of it pin pointing the leak. There might be a pin hole in one of the vaccum lines, or the plastic casing on top of the evaporative purge valve could be cracked. The smoke test will find it.

EVAP evaporative emissions systems monitoring
This system includes the on-board refueling vapor recovery (OVRV) system with leak detection (LDP) pump.
The ORVR system filters fuel vapor through the EVAP canister to prevent vapor escaping directly into the atmosphere.
The engine Control Module (ECM) determines when appropriate conditions are met and activates the LDP to pump a small amount of air pressure into the fuel tank and lines. The pump runs until a pre-determined pressure or time is reached. If the system does not hold the pressure, a fault or DTC is stored in the ECM.
The area this is located is behind the right plastic rear wheel liner cover. You will see the fuel filler neck from there and the rest of the EVAP system. Visual check for cracks on all the hoses specially the hose clamps. There are 3 lines connected to the Activated charcoal canister (EVAP canister fastened to body) that are detachable and use O-rings for secured sealing. Check if O-rings, if damaged, replace.
