    It sounds like you have a problem with your Evaporative System. I would take it back to who sold you the vehicle and it should be properly repaired for no charge. This is a dangerous fire hazard situation. It is not legal to sell an unsafe vehicle in any State by anyone. If the person, lot etc objects, tell them that you will be engaging an attorney to handle this ASAP.
