Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

2006 Chevy Blazer

I just tried to take my vehicle through inspection and the emissions check tech said it kicked out a code, so it failed. My gas gage isn't working and my engine light kept coming on and off. I took it to chevy dealership and they said its fuel level sensor and other things in connection which started out being $900; I don't have that kind of monies. The car is 2 yrs old and approximately 45,000 miles and only had a 36,000 mile warranty.

Was there any recalls on fuel sensors for this vehicle, I don't understand how it went bad so fast.

Thank you

Deborah

It might just be a bad connection to the fuel tank float level and not a bad sensor at all. The problem is finding some one that will tell you that if they find it. In any event, to fix it you need to drain the fuel and drop the gas tank down. The labor exceeds the cost of the sensor. Since it is not under warrenty, I would try to find a local shop to do the work that has a lower shop rate. I have not found a good way to find an honest shop yet unless they are friends whom you know well. Good Luck.

Failed 2001 chevy blazer code 452


(PO452 general motors code, low evaporative emmisions control input) Believe it or not it could be that the gas cap is not on tight or needs to be replaced. Other than that: vacuum line or evap. canister leak.

Emission failure on 2001 chevy blazer 4.3-


your vehicle has a vent valve solenoid located on the evap canister under the back end of the vehicle. You most likely have a bad vaccuum line going to the evap caniser. Have the vehicle smoke tested to verify. If no leaks are found replace the vent valve solenoid

My 2007 Chevy Avalanche failed the emission test with the code of P0455 what is the problem?


It is probably the evap vent valve. A new vent solenoid valve has been redesigned to correct the problem you are having. I would recommend purchasing the dealer component.
I hope this helps.

Check engine light is on- reason- Evap emission control system malfunction- code PO440


Causes: A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
* The gas cap is not installed or working properly
* The purge solenoid has failed
* The canister is plugged and not working properly

Possible Solutions: With a P0440 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
* Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
* Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
* Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
* Check and/or replace the sensor
* Check and/or replace the purge valve
* Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks

Hope helps (remember to rate this).

What p0440 mean in the cars


P0440 OBD-II - Evaporative Emission Control System Malfunction


What does that mean?
This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.



Symptoms:

What does code po442 means on a 2004 chevy blazer


This code is for the evaporative emission system.The po442 means there is a small vapor leak in the system.The module does several checks during the time you operate your vehicle and monitors the fuel tank pressure sensor Hope this helps.Good luck.for leaks.When it sees a leak it will kick on the check engine light after it fails a certain amount of times.this does not mean there is fuel leaking out and you will not smell any fuel either.The repair shops have a special tool called a smoke machine that will help them find the leak when they pressurize the system.The usual culprit is the vent valve but this does not mean it can`t be something else.I checked bulletins and found one for your vehicle that says there could be a fracture in the filler neck of the fuel tank.This does not mean that your vehicle has a fracture in it but that it should be checked because it could have one in it.This means they have seen this problem in these vehicles.This will not hurt the vehicle or leave you stranded but it should be repaired.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Input from anyone who wants to comment... Emissions Inspection??


Obama is working on a changeover as we speak. A faulty gas guage would not show up on any test. The guage is attached to a floating device inside the gas tank. Sometimes the float can get stuck.
