Can anyone tell me what P0455 code is? Autozone has a Vacuum leak, but not sure about this. Can anyone tell me the exact problem?

The exact problem is: there is a large leak in the EVAP system. It could be a simple thing as a missing or non sealing fuel filler cap, but for the rest you need a repair shop to test (possible smoke test) the EVAP system.
