Can't find evap leak

I have a 2001 se auto. I had the fuel pump replaced a couple weeks ago. Jeep died today, got it started and went to auto zone. Idle air control system p0505 and 2 evap codes 1 small leak detected and one large leak detected. Not sure bout p0505 coz I just replaced idle air control valve. Jeep idles high when coming to a stop then idles down. Never starts on first try always second or third if very cold. I sprayed carb cleaner all over intake and evap canister, all hoses and cant find the sob if this is my problem....Any ideas?

I found a vacum line disconnected, still have p0505 and p0455 codes. I think the vacume line off took care of one code. Any ideas on the other 2?

I just had a leak - cracked "T" fitting at the line at the gas tank.

If that is where the leak is - don't unbolt the tank and then let it hang from the lines, or the shop will have to replace the fitting. And the maim fuel line. And the center cover that houses the sensor. Heehee, they felt really really bad.
