Have you contacted the guys who told you to get a new gas cap? Was a new gas cap a recall? It was on mine. It might be just old gas smell still in car. Does the car still stall? On my car the dealer said there was not a hole in my old gas cap to relieve vaccume pressure, it was a factory recall, but I never did have any trouble with it.

The code P0422 per oBD diagnostic is evap emission control has little leak. Where is that evap emission control located?

you have something allowing the gas fumes to leak out of your emission system is what code po422 means if you replaced your gas cap and this code came back after resetting your check engine light then some where in the vent line between the fuel tank and the intake there is a leak that is allowing the gas tank to depressurize which will turn on the light and cause your cars ecm or computer to go into (limp mode) this is a preset program which allows the driveline to operate at a non optimum setting or diagnostic setting meaning it will get lousy gas mileage until repairs are made and the problem is fixed as far as being safe to drive it could be very dangerous depending on how bad the leak is and weather the car has exhaust leaks also you are dealing with gas fumes closed in say like parking in a garage where these fumes can build up it can be very dangerous if enough fumes build up in such a instance out in the open not very bad at all

Code comes of for leak evac the shop ran smoke and could not find a leak I got a new gas cap, I don't smell gas help?

Make sure the computer has been reset since changing the cap. Autozone, etc. will scan for free.

The smoke test should have caught the problem provided the shop looked at the gas tank too. There can be a problem in the electric solenoid valving for the canister which can be concealing a leak beyond the solenoid valving. If the solenoid is closing off the flow, then it can also close off the leak.

As for smelling gas, its the fumes which flow in these hoses, not raw gas. If the Vacuum system draws the fumes in, or if the leak is rearward, there is less of a chance of smelling the fumes. Rushing air from driving will dissipate many fumes.

The diagnostics module does not work. When my check engine light came on I took it several places but there was no power. All fuses are good and triple checked. I took it to a shop 3 weeks ago they ran...

the cigar lighter fuse usually powers the scan tool. If the light is on, take it back to the shop that did the gas cap repairs. there may be more to the leak than the gas cap.

2000 Dodge Intrepid with PO455 code and stalling.

A code 455 most likely one or more of the following has happened
a loose or bad gas cap
a non-conforming gas cap
other leaks or damage pieces in the evap system

Inspect the evap system for cracks or breaks in lines listen for vacume leaks or strong gas fume smell and fix all lines you find that are damaged ..I know you say you put a new gas cap but make sure it a conforming cap..Hope this helps
