message center is telling me to tighten my gas cap... ive replaced gas cap 4
times now and got the car scanned for codes...got a P0455 so i replaced my

You need to smoke test the evap system to determine where the leak could be. It's the only way to isolate the problem component without replacing all the components of the system. The top two hits on identifix are the purge valve, which you already did, and the gas cap, which you already did. It could be the fuel tank pressure sensor, but without a smoke machine its jut guess work.
