Q: Possible EVAP leak?

asked by on

About 6 months ago my engine light came on so I took it to get a computer read out of what the problem might be. It came back with three different codes so they couldn't tell me for sure what was causing it, When sitting at a stop sign it seems to emit a lot of smoke. The vehicle is running great aside from this issue and I really would like to get it fixed. Any ideas??
