a small evap leak is often interpreted as a loose gas cap , which it can be , it means the evap systems integrity has been breached , it can be an electrical solenoid , switch or just a vacuum line in the system . a bidirectional scanner can run the evap test after checking the gas cap , most well equipped shops can hook up a smoke machine to the evap system service port and run the smoke test , it there is a leak you will see the smoke , makes the diagnosis quickly . get an estimate from a reputable shop , by the way this problem has no effect on drivability , but should be fixed . cheers

SOURCE: Code P0456 on 2003 Town & Country

Below are the possible causes for your engine light and error code:

Possible Causes:

  • EVAP fuel tank or canister vapor hoses leaking or damaged
  • EVAP system component leaking, fuel cap loose or missing
  • Leak detection pump damaged or leaking

The fuel cap is probably the most common cause of this problem. It's considered part of the emission system and if faulty or not place on the filler tube correctly, it will throw an error. Best of luck with your engine light issue. Take care!

P0456: Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)

Using a Multimeter, check the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Canister Purge Regulator Valve N80 terminals 1 and 2 for resistance. You should get 22.0 to 30.0 Ohms. If not, replace the canister. If you do, you have other problems.

Trouble shooting a 456 code on a 2002 subaru legacy


Evaporative emission control system malfunction
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

A new knock sensor was installed, new air filter, new hose-old was leaking antifreeze. The engine light went off but came back on 30 to 40 minutes later. The computer was reset on two different...


Ok.. the p0328 is in fact a bad knock sensor. I would suggest that someone replaced it incorrectly or the wrong one.. maybe even the wrong part.

p0442 is a small leak in some part of the evap system. Faulty gas cap can cause this but if it was not there before I would suggest the shop knocked something loose or cracked a hose during their repair.

p0456 is a large leak in the same evap system. Likely related to the p0442.

Good luck.

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

I have a 2003 dodge ram 1500 with a V-8 4.7 engine and my check engine light came on with a P0456 code and I have been told that it could be the gas cap, I have checked it and it seems fine but should I...


The leak in your evap system is very small at .020. It is more than likely a small split in a hose somewhere. The cap is probably ok, we rarely find a bad one. If it is a small split in a hose it will only get larger over time. Here is the factory info on the code. We have found that alot of these leaks are from a small hose on the evap canister under the vehicle, but with out looking at your vehicle it is hard to say. If the leak goes away or is no longer large enough to be detected, your light will go out after a few days. These leaks are emmissions related and will not effect the integrity of the vehicle. I would have it checked and corrected if the light stays on at your convienience.

P0442-EVAP LEAK MONITOR MEDIUM (0.040) LEAK DETECTED
