Default Minor evap leak

I have a minor evap leak, causing the engine light to stay on. It's not the gas cap, any common causes? Thanks, Eric

To many to list with the forum messed up. Check hose from evap valve mounted on the cooling fan to the tank.

Tech, I followed the line, twisting and reconnecting at intersections,from the evap valve to the manifold and back to the tank. So far, no message. Again, thanksfor your time and expertise. Eric
