The engine light code means that you have a leak in your EVAP system. That means you didn't tighten your gas cap tight enough or at all or you have fuel leak.

When you get on the gas hard in the engine is skipping that makes me think it might be a fuel leak in you gas line.

When your transmission doesn't shift till 4 or 5 rpms that's normal if you have weight in your truck. Or you a pressing the gas harder than usual.

What does diagnostic code PO455


A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary.

Check engine light comes on


"po455 large leak" means that you are not maintaining positive pressure in your fuel system. Have a mechanic do a "smoke test" on the fuel system. Could be as simple as a loose gas cap...

2004 cavalier p0455


I had the same code for my 2004 chevy cavalier and it turned out to be the evap solenoid behind the passenger side rear tire. It has a small wiring harness coming out of it and a rubber hose connected to it. It just pops out of the frame of the car after unplugging said wire and hose. But you can only get another one by finding a junkyard that has one or going to a dealership.
