If it is the same code they found on mine(2001)Intrepid,when "they" changed my trans fluid;then it is the code for the gas cap! If this is what it is, then there is nothing to worry about.In short of losing some gas, eye droppers worth for every 1-2 gallons of gas,thats nothing;but,get the cap replced,and it must be the same cap(from the dealer)that was originally installed on the car.These original caps tend to wear out after about 30-40k miles or so;So just get the cap replaced at a dodge chrysler shop/dealer.P.s. like I said,out of 16gallons (from full),you'll lose about a 1/3 cup toyal.I have not done mine as of yet,but hope to soon!! By the way, do you know or any one can tell me how to remove the drive belt?I can't figure out yet in short of getting a manual on how to do this,on fords you losen the tensioner,on this one(Intrepid 2.7)the tensioner is on the accessory belt side! so please if you can or somone you know tell me how.Thank's;and I hope I was helpful to you.In Jesus name,God bless and keep on-a rollin'!!!! P.s.

2004 jeep grand cherokee code 442/455

OBD code P0442 Small EVAP leak detected you may need to check the EVAP canister under the vehicle and the purge valve as well check for cracks on the canister or the purge valve and check all the rubber hoses connected to them foe cracks or holes. If you find any damage parts replace them. P0455 which means a large EVAP leak is sometimes referred as the gas cap leak check your gas cap and secure it tight if you still have the code change the gas cap hope this helps after you find and fix the problems get the vehicle to a shop and they will use an OBD scan tool to clear the codes.

What are the code manings of P0455 and P0457 for a 2003 ford mustang gt?

Both codes are for major leaks in the Evap system which vents fumes from the gas tank to the engine.
Code 455 is for a major leak, and code 457 is for the gas cap which could cause 455.
The codes can set if you run the engine with the gas cap off, or there may be a problem with the cap or other component.

I have a 2000 Ford Mustang and the engine light came on. Afriend checked it with his code reader and got codes 405, and 455. What does this mean?

PO405 DPF EGR Sensor Circuit Low Voltage Detected
Differential Pressure Feedback--maybe a sensor

PO455 EVAP Control System Leak (No Purge Flow-Large Leak)

The 455 could be leaking hoses,other sensors and
about 12 things in the evap system

I would suggest a repair shop

One the knows what their doing and
has an EVAP Smoke Machine and surely
will need a scanner,unless they shotgun
every job,in that case don't go there
