I have a 2000 stratus 2.5 v6 and the check engine light came on what does this code really mean?

161-p0455 it said its the evaporater system leak. could that mean theres a vacuum leak? i already checked all the hoses for that and there aint no leak could it be the sensors? like th AGR valve?

More than likely the gas cap was loosened while the car was running...Tighten the gas cap and have Autozone reset the code and see if it comes back...It could be a defective cap, but I doubt it....Jim
