P0455 Car smells like gas

My car started throwing P0455 and it smells like gas almost all the time, what do I need to replace? I already replaced the gas cap..

P0455 Fuel Tank Ventilation System (Major Leak) - Below Lower Limit Potential causes: - Tank cap missing or O-ring bad or missing. - Ventilation lines detached from EVAP canister. - Ventilation line detached from tank. - Ventilation lines detached from operating vent valve. - Ventilation line detached from fuel tank vent valve. - Break in ventilation lines.
