Question about 1998 Honda Passport

1 Answer

"Evaporative System Not Ready"

My 1998 Honda Passport has "Evaporative System Not Ready" issue when I brought it for Smog Test. It has no "Check Engine Light On" & "No Diagnostic Code/s" to determine the problem. The test center suggested to have it full tank and drive for about more than 100 miles and return to check if the "Not Ready Problem" is already eliminated. I went back with more than 200 miles on it and unfortunately I got the same result. Hence, the they advised me to drive again for another 100 miles and after doing so, I returned with 500 miles on it, I got the same result again as well. Now, please, tell me how to fix to this problem. What is the best solution?

If there are no fault codes for the problem and there is no known problem then it is possible that the smog machine is not connecting properly to the data plug

SOURCE: check engine light comes "on"

OK, If I understand your question correctly, Your Check Engine light is coming on and you are getting a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0240 and we are talking about a 2000 Honda Civic DX with a 1.6L engine? If this is not correct, please let me know.

DTC P0240 is not a valid code for the vehicle listed above. Are you sure we are not talking about DTC P0420? If this is the case, then your catalytic converter is not working and most likely will need to be replaced. If you previously had fuel system problems, this is what most likely destroyed your catalytic converter - especially if the vehicle was driven fo some time with the fuel system problem. It is VERY common for this code to come up after other engine performance problems have been repaired. The reason for this is because the computer will not run the catalyst monitor if there are other problems in the ignition or fuel systems. So as long as these other problems exist, the computer has no idea what the condition of the catalyst is. Once the other problems are fixed, then the catalyst moitor will run. If the computer finds that the catalyst has been damaged and is not performing as designed, it will set DTC P0420.

Evaporative system


There are a number of components in this system. If you go to Autozone, Advance, or Oreillys they will scan for FREE if you have a Code light (check engine light).

If that is where you had the car looked at, you did not get a complete answer, you need the Code number

Sometimes a simple gascap is to blame if it is not tight. Or the hoses running to the evaporator cannister may leak and take a "smoke" test to find the leak. There are often electric switches to make the fumes flow when they need to and a bad switch will stop the system from working.

I hope my solution is helpful. You need a better diagnostic result to find the problem.

I had the same problem with my Passport and it was the fuel pump going bad. The pump was not producing enough pressure to get the fuel into the fuel system. A local shop discovered the problem when they did a pressure test on my fuel system.

2002 honda passport ex starts fine and then dies moments later-then will not start again, then I put it in nuetral and it starts


Classic symptoms of low fuel flow. I'd start by replacing the fuel filter (that's fairly cheap) and getting the fuel pump checked - it may be getting ready to conk out on you (not as cheap). Getting the injectors cleaned may help also.

If the fuel delivery system checks out, then the throttle position sensor may be bad.
