P0442, P0455 AND P0456 are all evaporative leak monitor test failures (small, medium and large leaks). These codes appear anytime the integrity of the air space above the fuel or the lines to/from the vapor canister or purge valve. If there is no damage to the canister, check the lines that run under the van from the fuel tank and canister to the purge valve (under the hood). Also, check to make sure that the hoses are not split or disconnected where they connect to the purge valve. The P1684 is abit more confusing. This is not a valid DTC for your vehicle. It's possible the scanner the shop you went to is an OTC scanner that is reporting a false code. It's also possible they wrote it down incorrectly. The closest thing that makes any sense is a P1486 which would indicate a pinched hose in the same monitor system as the other 3 codes. Best of luck!

ok well this might be a hard one . from what i can gather by the co reading and the o2 reading is that we are running fat. a couple things can cearte this one how many miles do we have on this mtr, two do we have a vacuumn leak? three is the vech going into closed loop? some how we need to get are hands on a scanner so we can look at a data, other wise you are going to be throwing parts at this vech , and thats not the way to fix your problem. the odds are that you may have some lazy o2 sensors you are close. have you tryed running the vech down the road before you go in for the test. the converter is like a hot water heater you have to bring it to operating temp before it will operate correctly. keep me informed

CA you can take the car to a referree and get a one time waiver if you have spent a minimum of $450 on repairs not including smog fees. Gives you two years to get it fixed.

You can also sell the car to the state for "up to" $1,000
