Jeep is throwing code p0441 and code 13. Checked front hoses. OK. Evap leak? Any help?

My car has 177000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi - the P0441 code indicates that there is no flow of fumes detected from the gas tank/evap cannister to the engine. This could be caused by a faulty leak detection pump in the gas tank, failed purge valve, bad wiring to or a failed purge solenoid, blockage in the evap purge line, or even a failed engine management computer (not often). I would recommend having a Evaporative Emissions System Inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
