Default Evap leak fixed already?

About a week ago my truck went to the dealer b/c it was pretty evident to me that the used dealer sold it to me without and overlook dealer fixed my evap leak and found that my emissions coil was bad (never even heard of an emissions coil and Id like to think I know more than the avg. joe),front hubs, back warped rotors and 4 fresh pads. Well a about 4days ago the evap leak code came back then dissappeared the next day now its back. What do you guys think I plan on taking it back to the dealer but I hate blindly handing my truck over or not being able to converse w/ the service guys about the problem. Could it be a computer thing? He said the hose had a hole so Im assuming he replaced it, could this just be the computer working it out? any ideas guys?

Emissions coil? Whatever! No such animal exists. You still have an EVAP issue for sure, be it a small leak, NVLD switch or whatever,

Well today it went back for the third time and the service manage was talking about getting me a new gas cap. I already inspected the gas cap and told him I would have none of that and I wanted a smoke check. He was very nice and said the tech would. Turns out the o-ring on the gas tank has rusted out and was leaking. He said I would have it back today but teh guy from Honda (I have a honda warranty from the dealer I bought it used from) had to come check it out so I might not get it back til Mon. :/ Ive had the truck for 2months and know the whole staff at Dodge rt4 already ugh

Talking Evap leak code

Had the same code with my '02 RAM, got old Joe to hook up his analyzer, and that's what he told me,....then he said, "or it could just be the gas cap". Turns out that's what it was, so now when I tightend the cap I click it 5-6 times instead of 1-2, check engine light went out, hasn't been on since.

gas cap gaskets are like radiator caps, the seal make look good to you, but, when checked out with pressure tester, it shows a fault
