SOURCE: emission evaporative system large leak

Error messages like this are typically caused by air leaks at one of several key places: (1) at the gas tank filler neck; (2) at the charcoal canister; or (3) one of the larger vacuum hoses under your hood.

A loose hose is probably the most common problem--over time, the plastic nipples to which those hoses attach weaken and can break off. Thus, a hose can look like it's in the right place, but it's not actually creating a seal at one end.

You can try to listen for this with the engine running and the hood open. Do you hear any kind of a "hissing" sound like you might hear when using one of those spittoon-things at the dentist? That's a major vacuum leak, right there. Many leaks aren't noisy enough to hear over the sound of the engine, though, so don't consider an absence of noise a statement that everything is just OK down there.

The problem at the fuel filler neck was endemic to certain GM vehicles, but it appears in other cars, too. Believe it or not, there's a vapor recovery hose that is attached at some point of the fuel filler neck to catch evaporation off the tank. Some cars also have another pickup right at the top of the gas tank, too. If one of these has worked loose or rotted, you'll start getting strange vacuum readings and a check engine light.

Hope this helps. Finding the cause of this problem usually takes more time (and money) than the actual fix.

Good luck!

SOURCE: what P0453-Evaporative Emission control System Pressure Sensor h

P0453 is for the fuel tank pressure sensor. This code means that the voltage on the sensor was greater than 4.5V during key on engine off or during any engine operating mode.
Normal voltage from this sensor with no vacuum or pressure on the system should be 2.37 to 2.97V.
PCM sends a reference voltage of 5V to the sensor and tells if there is pressure or vacuum in the fuel tank by the voltage that returns from the sensor.

Possible causes are:

  • FTP circuit open
  • VREF shorted to VPWR
  • Damaged PCM
  • FTP circuit shorted to VREF or VPWR
  • SIG RTN circuit open
  • Damaged FTP sensor

  • Usually it is a loose connector at the sensor or a bad sensor.
    It mounts on top of the fuel tank,has a 3 wire connector. To replace it you have to push down on it and twist,if I remember right CC.

    Where is purge sensor located


    There is no such thing , What code do you have if any ? There is a purge solenoid for the EVAP system ! evaporative emission system. An there is a vent solenoid , a fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor.
    The evaporative emission (EVAP) control system limits fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. Fuel tank vapors are allowed to move from the fuel tank, due to pressure in the tank, through the vapor pipe, into the EVAP canister. Carbon in the canister absorbs and stores the fuel vapors. Excess pressure is vented through the vent line and EVAP vent valve to atmosphere. The EVAP canister stores the fuel vapors until the engine is able to use them. At an appropriate time, the control module will command the EVAP purge valve ON, open, allowing engine vacuum to be applied to the EVAP canister. With the EVAP vent valve OFF, open, fresh air will be drawn through the valve and vent line to the EVAP canister. Fresh air is drawn through the canister, pulling fuel vapors from the carbon. The air/fuel vapor mixture continues through the EVAP purge pipe and EVAP purge valve into the intake manifold to be consumed during normal combustion. The control module uses several tests to determine if the EVAP system is leaking.

    1996 Ford Aerostar 3.0 L V-6 Constant check engine light ON Ran codes. Code says vacuum leak on fuel canister. I'd like to change all the vacuum lines. Don't have a good schematic. Haynes manual only...


    what codes?

    The vacuum lines run from the canister to the intake manifold. One is the purge hose to deliver stored fuel vapor to the intake to be burnd when engine is warm and you are crusing at part throttle. The other line is the vacuum line to operate it.

    Fuel Vapor Valve, Aerostar (4.0L Engine) The evaporative emission valve (9B593) uses a small orifice, 1.83mm (0.072 inch), that allows vapors to pass into the vapor line running forward to the evaporative emissions canister (EVAP canister) (9D653). This evaporative emission valve mounts directly into the fuel tank (9002) using a fuel vapor separator seal. Fuel vapors trapped in the sealed fuel tank are vented through the orificed evaporative emission valve. The vapors from the fuel tank leave the evaporative emission valve through a single vapor line and continue to the evaporative emissions canister in the engine compartment for storage.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    Fuel Vapor Canister Purge Regulator Valve, Aerostar, Ranger Removal and Installation
    1. Disconnect wire harness from evaporative emission canister purge valve (EVAP canister purge valve) (9C915).
    1. Disconnect wire harness from thermistor.
    1. Disconnect evaporative emission canister purge valve assembly from fuel vapor canister and throttle body.
    1. To install, reverse removal procedure.

    Code says evaporator purge solenoid


    Which code specifically? Do not assume you need a new solenoid. Our recommendation will depend on the specific code and some troubleshooting results. I usually recommend checking over all the EVAP vacuum lines and the gas cap too whenever there is a purge valve code. Check the vacuum lines at the cannister in the left rear bumper. I will paste info on the purge solenoid below.

    Evaporative Emission Purge Solenoid

    Description & Operation
    The duty cycle EVAP canister purge solenoid (DCP) regulates the rate of vapor flow from the EVAP canister to the intake manifold. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) operates the solenoid.
    During the cold start warm-up period and the hot start time delay, the PCM does not energize the solenoid. When de-energized, no vapors are purged. The PCM de-energizes the solenoid during open loop operation.
    The engine enters closed loop operation after it reaches a specified temperature and the time delay ends. During closed loop operation, the PCM cycles (energizes and de-energizes) the solenoid 5 or 10 times per second, depending upon operating conditions. The PCM varies the vapor flow rate by changing solenoid pulse width. Pulse width is the amount of time that the solenoid is energized. The PCM adjusts solenoid pulse width based on engine operating condition.
    Removal & Installation
    The duty cycle evaporative (EVAP) canister purge solenoid is located in the engine compartment near the brake master cylinder.

    1. Disconnect electrical connector at solenoid.
    2. Disconnect vacuum lines at solenoid.
    3. Lift solenoid slot from mounting bracket for Removal & Installation.

    To Install:
    1. Position solenoid slot to mounting bracket.
    2. Connect vacuum lines to solenoid. Be sure vacuum lines are firmly connected and not leaking or damaged. If leaking, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may be set with certain emission packages.
    3. Connect electrical connector to solenoid.

    P0441 Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow
    OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description

    Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow
    What does that mean?

    This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

    EVAP emission canister purge is contolled by a valve which allows engine vacuum to pull stored fuel vapors from fuel tank into the engine to be burned, rather than be vented to atmosphere. A vacuum switch is used to detect when flow exists. If the PCM commands purge and sees that the switch is closed (indicating no detected purge flow) P0441 is set.
    Symptoms

    Likely, no symptoms will be discernible to the driver, other than the illuminated Check Engine Light.
    Causes

    A code P0441 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

    * Bad vacuum switch
    * Broken or damaged EVAP line or canister
    * Open in PCM purge command circuit
    * Open or short in Voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
    * Faulty purge solenoid
    * Restriction in EVAP solenoid, line or canister
    * Corrosion or resistance in purge connector
    * Bad PCM

    Possible Solutions

    With a P0441 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:

    * Common Chrysler fix - Replace Leak Detection Pump / LDP
    * Repair damaged EVAP lines or canister
    * Repair open or short in voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
    * Repair open in PCM purge command circuit
    * Replace purge Solenoid
    * Replace vacuum switch
    * Repair restriction in Evap line or canister or soleniod
    * Repair resistance in purge connector
    * Replace PCM
    THIS IS LIKELY FROM TOPPING OFF THE TANK EACH TIME YOU FUEL UP



    P0455 is similar:

    Technical Description

    Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (no purge flow or large leak)
    What does that mean?

    This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.
    Symptoms

    You likely won't notice any drivability problems.
    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, have AutoZone 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

    I have a 03 dodge ram 1500 and got the codes p0440 and p0441. changed gas cap. where are all the parts located


    P0441 - Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow The "EVAP purge flow" faults are issues between the carbon cannister and the intake. The EVAP leak detection generally concerns the fuel tank to carbon cannister plumbing. A little background. The EVAP or evaporative emission system is a control system to keep vapors from evaporation in the fuel tank from getting into the atmosphere. The fuel tank is not vented, but rather the vapors are piped to the carbon cannister (usually located behind the pass. side front wheel) where the charcoal element absorbs the vapor. This is actually a vapor "storage" device. Under certain engine operating conditions, the ECU activates the Cannister Purge Valve (N80) which opens and allows the engine vacuum to **** the fuel vapors back out of the carbon cannister. This purges the vapor, allowing the cannister to absorb more vapor. This evap system has been on vehicles since the '70s. As part of the OBDII standard effective for 1996 cars and newer, it was mandated that leaks in the systems must be detected and reported as a fault which will set the Check Engine Light (CEL). To detect leaks, the system is pressurized by a pump so that leaks can be detected by a lack of appropriate pressure in the system. If there is a leak, such as a cracked vent hose, loose (or leaky) gas cap, poorly installed or defective O-rings on the fuel level senders on the fuel tank, etc. a code will be set. On the cannister to intake side, leaks are detected by deviations in the idle control system. If you have leaks in the lines from the carbon cannister to the intake, intake leaks, a defective purge valve, etc you will often get purge flow faults. My first recommendation is to closely inspect all the small vacuum lines connected to the intake manifold. The corrugated plastic lines are often the culprits, as well as the fabricate covered vacuum lines. Also consider replacing the gas cap.

    Im getting a P0441 EVAP emission control system purge flow fault code on my 2002 hyundia elantra. im guessing a good start would be to blow out the lines and replace the vacuum switch? where are they?


    P0441 : Evap. Emission System Incorrect Purge Flow

    General Description
    The evaporative emission control system prevents hydrocarbon (HC) vapors from the fuel tank from escaping into the atmosphere where they could form photochemical smog. Gasoline vapors are collected in the charcoal canister. The ECM controls the Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV) to purge any collected vapors from the canister back to the engine for combustlon. This valve is actuated by the purge control signal from the PCM and controls fuel vapor from the canister to the intake manifold.
    Possible Cause : ● Leakage on hose to PCSV ● Defective PCSV
