2008 explorer 2wd 4.0 code is small EVAP leak, and it starts cold and runs fine except when warm it is hard to start, I have to pump the gas and get the rpms over 3k to get it running and stay running and it drives fine after that. The EVAP purge valve is not leaking. I smoked the EVAP back to the tank and smoke came out around the top of the filler neck not the fuel fill area ( no gas cap). I replaced the fuel filler pocket as it seals the EVAP system at the top of the filler hose. I'm still having same code and issue.
