Question about Cars & Trucks
I have an action cp9580a. And snap on MT2500 SCANNER
Code 455 is for a large leak in the evap system.
The computer vents the gas tank to the vapor canister by opening and closing valves.
Have you checked the evap system for leaks ?

I have a 2001 STS that had the same problem - Service Engine light and returned the P0410 code. It ended up being a small rubber hose that had pulled off one of the plastic lines in the secondary air system. In fact, I just fixed this last night.
Pull off the top engine shield (the one covering the motor and the fuel injectors, not the plastic one at the front of the car) and look for loose lines, hoses or wiring.
Also - if you remove the shroud under the engine (you just have to pull out a bunch of plastic retaining plugs) you can get at the lower elements of the SAS. Look for loose lines, hoses or wiring.
You could be fortunate and just have a loose line. Does the caddie run OK?

If you have an EVAP leak, you will get the following codes:
1. P0442 evap emission control system leak (small).
2. P0455 evap emission control system leak (large).
If these codes come up, you need to trace the leak. The most common place for the systems to leak besides the gas cap is at the service port under the hood, the hoses at the purge solenoid, and the hoses around the fuel tank. Check all your EVAP hoses from under the hood , all the way back to the gas tank. You can repair a split hose easily. Buy some 14.5mm EVAP hose at the auto parts store. Just cut the split or cracked section out and attach the new hose.
I can only say that u must fix the code issue and light to pass state emission test, if u reset the light they will know, the system will tell the tester that the system is not ready, this will cause a fail.

Just maybe your O2 sensors are not operating properly. They may be requiring your engine to heat them up to get upper temperature readings but not lower. You can easily diagnose these and all other sensors and problems by purchasing a Hains manual at your local Auto Zone or Advance auto store which will greatly aide you in diagnosing all your auto needs. And the fault symptom index at the beginning of the book will ease your troubles with professional one on one advice with step by step instructions. Its like having your own ASE certified mechanic at your finger tips. Good luck.
