this is an obd2 trouble code table, it can help you understand the meaning of code,
and for p0455:
Causes:
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
Possible Solutions:
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
for p0457:
The only way a P0457 can set by itself is if the gas cap is left loose, assuming the van is in working order. when the engine controller sees a large increase in fuel level it knows you put some in the tank, and it runs the evaporative emissions system test to see if the system is sealed. If it sees a large leak it knows the cap was left off and sets the P0457. If you are positive the cap wasn't left even a little bit loose you may have a leak back there. It could be in the filler neck, from the tank to the evaporative emissions canisters just behind the subframe on the left side, and from there on up to the right front corner of the engine compartment where the purge solenoid is. If you don't see any leaks you probably have a bad NVLD, the unit that checks the system for leaks. This is probably what you are going to find.
The pressure or vacuum in the fuel tank when you remove the cap tells me that the system probably is sealed and has no leaks. Many times there will either be a little bit of pressure or vacuum in the tank, and it's perfectly normal.
The fuel gauge being innaccurate is either the sending unit or a problem with the pump module itself. there were some problems with some of the pump modules that allowed continuity between two of the terminals in the fuel pump connector and it caused the gauge to be wrong. You will probably end up needing to replace the fuel pump assembly for the gauge issue.
hope help.

Misfires no power smells like sulfer PO Code 400


Year/make/model??? This is an EGR code. ( exhaust gas recirculation ). The valve may be stuck open and causing the engine to run rich. The engine should also run rough at idle if this valve is stuck open

Check for spark by removing the spark plug from the engine. Ground the plug on the metal of the engine. Have someone crank the engine to see if there is a spark. Also after cranking see if you smell gas at the spark plug whole. If you have a spark and smell gas the next step is a compression test. If no gas then check the fuel injector's wires and the injector.

Po 171, po 305, po 441


Hi, I know from my past experiances the spark plug wires at the boot ends than slide onto the sparkplugs usually over time short out due to the metal tubes that protect the sparkplugs from heat kind of ark across from the metal tube through the plug boot causing an error code. Sometimes in the dark you can actually see them arking at the tube on the engine, and also hear a crackling noise. As to the code for the O2 sensor that's a normal wear and tear item that may need replaced. As all vehicle age over time electrical connections, and things have issues develop and cause havick with sensors and computers in these vehicles too.


As with the 441 code and then the other code for the O2 sensor showing up may mean both O2 sensors are going bad if your system has 2 sensors in the exhaust, usually one before the cat converter and one behind it. A lot of this also is due to what gasoline you use in the vehicle over time. Lower octane gas may be what is causing things to act up.

Do you have a MIL Lamp light on dash?

Check for codes like PO 201 thru 208

Check recalls & use internet to research issue

After you resolve the problem, install the champion

The front or upstream oxygen sensors get replaced
on all your vehicles at 100,000 miles,after you fix the

I have a 1996 sunfire that all of the sudden wont accelerate , rpm's stay down , check engine light on and has for some time smelled like gas after running


as long as light is on, go to auto-zone etc they will scan for free. no sense in guessing, the OBD-2 scanner will give you a po code, so you know what area to start and fix it.

I am smelling fuel and it burns alot of gas.


Check for leaks, service engine lights since CTS (Coolant temp sensor) can cause the vehicle to run rich. Keep in mind that there is a lot of Ethenol in our gas that is lowing the gas mileage on our vehicles.The canister purge tank can cause gas smell if it isn't working right, but the computer should give you a service engine light on any of these.

Diaganosed the car with P0741 and P0440 trouble codes


The P0741 code is a torque converter clutch stuck in the off position and the po 440 code is an evaportative emission control circuit malfunction. The po440 code could be the gas cap not seated properly. Niether has anything to do with the radiator.
