Check engine soon light. diagnosed as troble shooting codepo44
Probable causes defective or loose fuel cap,evap canister or hose cracked-not connected,purge or vent selenoid defective,vacum leak at engine.Every thing appears to be ok. check all hoses and connection,replaced fuel cap,What is the next thing that would you sugest checking? I wonder about the purge or vent solenoid. Is the purge or vent selenoid the same or two differnt components?

- Missing or loose fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
- EVAP system hose leaking
- Fuel tank leaking
The P0455 it's a very common code, because the code is set if the gas cap is loose or missing. Start by tighten the gas cap and clearing the code. In most cases the code can be clear by disconnecting the car battery for about 30 minutes.
When is the code detected?
EVAP control system has a very large leak such as fuel filler cap fell off, EVAP control system does not operate properly.
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors
P0455 Buick Description
This diagnosis detects leaks in the Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) purge line using engine intake manifold vacuum. If pressure does not increase, the Engine Control Module (ECM) will check for leaks in the line between the fuel tank and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve under the following vacuum test condition.
The vacuum cut valve bypass valve is opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP canister vent control valve will then be closed to shut the EVAP purge line off. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is opened to depressurize the EVAP purge line using intake manifold vacuum. After this depressurization is implemented, the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve will be closed.
if tightening the cap or replacing the cap does not help take your car to a shop to have it diagnosed as it requires special tools/equipment to test this and get an accurate results to find what needs replacing.
The code is for a large leak in the EVAP system such as a loose or missing gas cap. But it could also mean a loose or missing hose to the canister or other leak in the tank. The computer vents the tank several times an hour while the engine is running, and it checks the system by pressurizing the gas tank. If the tank will not hold pressure the code is set. You may have to check the top of the tank where the fuel pump gasket is, as well as the vent lines to the front of the car. A mechanic would perform a smoke test to look for leaks.
CODE PO455 - EVAP SYSTEM LARGE LEAK DETECTED CONDITIONS.POSSIBLE CAUSES FUEL CAP LOOSE MISSING,FUEL TANK FULLER NECK OR FUEL SENDING UNIT O - RING IS LEAKING, FUEL TANK PRESSURE SENSOR IS DAMAGED,FUEL TANK VAPOR LINES,CLOGGED,DAMAGED,OR DISCONNECTED,PURGE VALVE VAPOR LINE IS CLOGGED,DAMAGED,OR DISCONNECTED,PURGE SOLENOID IS NOT OPENING,IT MAY BE DAMAGED OR STICKING,VENT SOLENOID IS NOT CLOSING,MAY BE DAMAGED OR STICKING,PCM HAS FAILED.
po440 is emission control system malfunction, Probable Causes: a) Defective or loose fuel cap b) EVAP Canister or hose cracked- not connected c) Purge or vent solenoid defective d) Vacuum leak at engine.
that is fuel tank evap related code.
It can be caused by simply removing the gas cap while the engine is running.
Dont get too concerned with this code if you think you may have opened the cap while car was running, the computer will soon turn the light off if all is well.
Other things Like ta cracked or faulty gas cap, The evap purge canister or hoses loose or cracked, filler neck hoses loose or cracked ,damaged orings on evap sensor. could also cause this code.
They often use a special smoke machine to diagnose leaks in the tank and evap system.
The special machine fills tank with smoke at 2 psi making it posible to spot leaks.
Hope this helps.
