The evap leak is short for EVARORATIVE EMISSIONS SYSTEM, NOT AC EVAPORATOR, AC leaks do not cause the truck to fail emission, most likely the problem is a defective gas cap. Also the code you give (P0244) is a watse gate code, please provide the correct code.

How to fix obd 2 PO456 on jeep grand cherokee laredo 2002

Usually this P0456 code is caused by an incorrect or faulty gas cap. Filling the fuel tank with the engine running could conceivable cause this code as well or if the cap wasn't properly tightened. Any of the following could also be the cause:
  • A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
  • A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
  • The EVAP Canister may be leaking

Engine light stays on code # P0456

P0456 is Evaporative Emissions System - Small leak detected.

More often than not it is a gas cap that is either not put on corrert or it has failed to hold the seal.
Less likely causes are:
  • A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
  • A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
  • The EVAP Canister may be leaking

P0456 OBD code just appeared on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Filled the gas tank and erased the code, but it's reappeared a week later.

That code definition is (evaporative system small leak detected). One of the most common reasons for this code is a faulty gas cap. The evap system is strictly designed to trap fuel vapors in the tank and not allow them to scape into the atmosphere. The vehicle keeps a constant vacume on the tank and when it is unable to hold that pressure it will set the code you have. Try buying a new gas cap-thats a cheap start-clear the code and see what happens. If the light comes back on you will have to bring it to a repair shop where they will tap into the Evap system and force smoke into it. They will then observe the Evap hoses and wherever it leaks smoke will be your problem.

I have a 2004 Jaguar evap control system leak, codes P0445 nd Po447. I have replaced the Gas cap, but light keeps coming on. my Actron tester can send a command to test the evap system,but I don't know...

If your wanting to know what to check. po445 is the purge solenoid control circuit, po447is the evap vent solenoid control circuit.Check the connections, and the wiring for shorts, or replace solenoid. Could also be a failed pcm.
