Looking for some suggestions on things to try or where to check. Car seems to be running fine with no issues other than CEL.

The vehicle was in an accident in late December, insurance company decided to fix the vehicle and it was running perfectly fine for 2 months after repair work was completed.

CEL - Kicked on a few weeks ago

Tried -

-Tightening Gas Cap

Took to mechanic. (05/19/17)
-Smoke (Leak was not located)
-Replaced Gas cap and reset code.

CEL back on (05/23/17)

The purge valve solenoid on the back of the intake manifold is one that very frequently goes bad on these cars. That may well be your culprit. $20 for a replacement; often makes a super loud ticking noise when it's broken.

I replaced the purge valve last night, going to reset the code and see if this does the trick on the evap code. Thank you for the advice. Unfortunately this part is $36 for the 2011 as AC/Delco changed to a different part in 2012 - newer models.
