I have seen both vent valve failures and canisters saturated cause the same thing.The purge valve pulls a vacuum on the tank at a predetermined time and after it's done the vent valve will release the vacuum from the tank,yours is not releasing this vacuum.

Should have evap trouble codes, is the check engine light on? Vacuum when removing gas cap and does the tank pop back out?

its not giving a code, I replace the gas cap awhile ago. I replace the gas tank since the bottom had collapse {it was like half a tank} but the problem has came back, the bottom of the tank has sucked up about 1/2" and will not pop back. I had a friend put his computer on it and where it says evap cycle it just says NO.

did you just install a new gas cap? or ck #1 suggestion and scan evap codes
