My 2001 saturn is trying to turn over and start but wont check engine light code p0452

P0452 Saturn Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor Circuit Low Voltage
"P0452 - Evaporative Emission Control System Pressure Sensor Low Input. Evaporative Emission Control System Pressure Sensor Low Input indicates a low voltage problem in the Fuel Tankicon1.png Pressure Sensor (FTPS). What the fuel FTP sensor does is convert fuel tank absolute pressure into electrical signals and inputs the signal to the ECM/PCM, (Computer).
First thing to do is make sure the gas cap is good and tightened properly. Then check the vacuumicon1.png lines and wiring at the FTPS (Location-Fuel Tank) to be sure they are good, clean and tight.
Barring a wiringicon1.png problem it can be a bad FTPS or PCM.
I copied this blog on the code p0452. So, check gas cap, check vacuum lines from fuel tank and trace the lines making sure there is no break. check wire plug on the fuel tank pressure sensor.

Low fuel pressure on neon 2003,have change fuel pump,but pressure is low can start if tank is full


Check the fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator. They are part of the same assembly and are located on top of the fuel pump. To replace the regulator # Disconnect fuel supply line at the Filter/Regulator nipple and releas locking spring tab (2 in diag.) on the regulator, then turn counterclockwise and pull out. To test regulator use a gauge like this in fuel lines:Pump Pressure Tester.
Pressure in 2003 should be 58psi (48 in 2001 engines). Pressure will drop of about ten psi when you start engine.

There is also an automatic shut down relay ASR. If problem is the ASR the pressure will go down when the relay cuts off power to pump. Read voltages and see if the problem is electrical first before going for the regulator.

I have a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 with a 4800 vortec engine. it starts and idels fine but when ever i give it gas, the engine starts to sputter and dies. ive already changed the fuel filter and spark plug...

This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

I have had fuel pump problem with my 2001 saturn 3 times since i purchase it. Is this a common problem with saturns

Unlees you are always running the fuel tank low, NO, this is not a common problem. When the fuel pump was replaced, what was the reason given? In short, what was the fuel pressure at the time when it was decided to replace it? Was there a diagnostic code stored in the PCM memory? Check engine light on? Was the vehicle ever run dry of fuel?

No fuel pressure,fuse and relay ok

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. Please be advised there is a filter/regulator sitting next to the tank which you should replace also. I think the filter/regulator can be changed without dropping the tank so you may want to try that first.

How do i change a fuel pump on a 2002 saturn sl1

To replace the fuel pump u must remove the gas tank from the car, to do this u need to have the car as high off the ground as poss, a floor jack and safety jack stands are a must, after u have the car in the air and secured on jack stands put the floor jack under the gas tank and apply light pressure to support the tank, position it between the two metal straps that secure it into the car, remove the bolts or nuts that hold the metal straps at one engine and drop the tank down far enough to disconnect the electrical connector and the fuel and vapor lines and the fill and vent lines, then carefully lowe the tank and bring it out, remove the retainer that holds the fuel pump module in the tank, pay attention to the position of the tank fuel pump module for proper installation of the new fuel pump module, reverse above, in all about a 3-4 hour job with a helper.
