Default 4 error codes... HELP!

I just purchased a 2005 PT cruiser... Less than a week has gone by and it started almost "stalling" and sputtering. Never completely shuts off but it's definitely scary... Looked up how to get codes and it came back with these 4.

P0344
P0457
P0456

Help!

Evap, probably a loose gas cap.

How much does that cost to repair??? Do you know off hand?

I read some forums stating you shouldn't buy a part online & go to the dealer

the PT is a pretty easy car to work on and there are literly tons of guys on here who will walk you through with pictures the canshaft is around $25 ID say go with a REAL MOPAR Brand sensor but thats just ME the evap is most likely your gas cap may need replaced or a new seal put on
