2000 Accord LX, 4 Cyl. check engine light and error codes P1457, P1739

Hi, my 2000 Accord LX, 4 speed automatic, 116 thousand miles, has the check engine light on and Auto Zone told me I got the error codes P1457 and P1739. I'm particularly concerned about the latter, which says automatic transaxle concern, because I can't afford a new transmission. Any ideas what could be wrong with my car and how to remedy it?
Thanks so much in advance!

A very common late 90's code, P1457 is a failure in one of the evap system solenoid valves. There are 2 culprits, the Vent Control Valve & the 2 Way Bypass Valve. So, start working with those and see if you can get the 1457 code off of it.

I also looked around about the 1739 code as well which a transaxle error. However, I've found that there has been more than enough reported cases of problems of the such. Take a look at this link, and do a little reading.

I hope this helps you out.

Dtc p1457,0107

P1457 HONDA - Evaporative Emissions Control System Leakage EVAP Canister Systemxicon.jpg CodePossible causes- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap There is a Honda factory service bulletin with information on how to diagnose the P1456 on the following Honda models:
1998 Honda Accord
1999 Honda Accord
2000 Honda Accord
1998-2000 Honda Accord
symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vaporsP1457 HONDA Description The evaporative emission (EVAP) control system stores fuel vapor from the fuel tank in the EVAP canister temporarily to prevent it from escaping to the atmosphere and to enable it to be drawn into the engine by intake manifold vacuum and burned. In addition, the onboard refueling vapor recovery system (ORVR) stores fuel vapor generated when refueling in the EVAP canister.

The EVAP control system leak detection method improves the accuracy and frequency of the detection by determining faulty components and vapor leakage for each part. The EVAP control system (from the purge valve to the fuel tank) is divided into two parts. One is the "EVAP Canister Side" (from the EVAP two way valve to the purge valve) and the other is the "Tank Side" (from the EVAP two way valve to the fuel tank). There is 0.04 inch leak detection and 0.02 inch leak detection. If the 0.04 inch leak detection results are OK, the 0.02 inch leak detection runs. The P1457 code is detected when the EVAP system has a very small leak.

P0107 HONDA - Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor Circuit Low Voltagexicon.jpg CodePossible causes- Manifold Absolute Pressure harness is open or shorted
- Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor poor electrical circuit connector
- Faulty Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) When is the code detected?An excessively low voltage from the sensor is sent to ECMSymptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Engine rough idle
- Engine hesitation
P0107 HONDA Description The Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor provides instantaneous manifold pressure information to the engine's Engine Control Module. The data is used to calculate air density and determine the engine's air mass flow rate, which in turn determines the required fuel metering for optimum combustion. A fuel-injected engine may alternately use a Mass Air Flow sensor to detect the intake airflow. A typical configuration employs one or the other, but seldom both.

In some vehicles the absolute pressure sensor is built into ECM.

I have an 02 accord that has the check engine light on. Its got 145000 miles on it. I got it scanned. The codes were p1259 vtec system circuit fault bank 1, p0420 catalyst system efficiency below...

Fix the P1259 code first. Are you using the recommended oil viscosity? If not, change that immediately. Also, check the screen in the Vtec solenoid for sludge buildup. If the variable valve timing isn't working properly, it can cause the P0420. If not fixed soon, that can destroy your cataltytic converter. The P1457 code is less important.

I have an 89 Honda Accord lx and it idles too low

The idle speed for my 88 accord lx is 700-850 rpm for standard idle speed. The stalling is a seperate issue. When were plugs, wires, air/gas filters and distributor last checked? How long has engine been running for when you stall? Is the temprature gauge high? Any lights coming on when stall occurs? I am not a mechanic, but a DYI'er. These are common questions I am always asked when troubleshooting my Honda. :)
