(2004 Chrysler Town & Country)
I am having trouble with my town and country it is using gas very fast and we hooked it up to a computer and it said the clyinder 6 was misfiring. So we checked and noticed it wouldnt close it would stay open so ordered a new computer for it. Now it's saying that clyinder number 5 is misfiring and that theirs a small leak in the evap. I looked at the evap and noticed orange liquid and two hoes that seem to be leaking. What could be the problem? If we changed the spark plugs and wires, and the computer.

First: nothing you stated nor any test results indicated that you needed a "new computer". It just makes things more complicated to replace a computer and then continue testing. The vast, vast majority of the time, the engine processor does not need to be replaced.

Evaporative emissions concerns will generally not lead to excessive fuel consumption. Focus on engine performance. If you have a misfire, it's important to check the plugs and wires (as you have) and ensure good parts have been used to replace them. If you still have a misfire, you should perform a compression test on each cylinder and determine if you have a base engine or cylinder head issue. Misfires can also be caused by fuel injector concerns. Testing is needed to figure out what is going on. Once resolved, then you can perform diagnostic testing on the evaporative emissions system for that concern, if it remains.
