    the only codes that end up going in are for cylinder 1 missfire. I had a mechanic put it on a better scanner and it shows cylinder 1 3 5 missfireing with 1 being the worst. thats why he said to put an intake gasket in it but i would think if it was the gasket it would do it all the time and it doesnt.

A faulty oxygen sensor can cause the car to run poorly so if you have a code for that I would try that first. Generally speaking the evap system means you didn't tighten your gas cap or you have another small vaccum type leak. When you say misfire, what exactly does that mean, is it just running rough?

1996 HONDA CIVIC P0450 EVAPORATE SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSOR,WHAT IS THE REASON OF THIS CODE,THE CIVIC DOESN'T HAVE FTP SENSOR.EMISION SYSTEM


The EVAP (Evaporative Emissions) System allows fuel tank vapors to be purged into the engine and burnt rather than expelled into the atmosphere as harmful emissions. The EVAP system contains a pressure sensor to check the integrity of the system. Periodically, the EVAP system performs a pressure test to check that there are no leaks in the system. It uses this sensor, also known as a fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor to check for leaks. Basically P0453 means the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) noticed the EVAP Pressure sensor or FTP is indicating a higher than normal pressure (above 4.5 Volts) in the EVAP system. NOTE: On some vehicles the FTP is a part of the fuel pump assembly in the tank. Potential Symptoms There will likely be no noticeable symptoms along with this code other than the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp), commonly known as Check Engine Light illumination. However, there may be noticeable fuel odors in some cases. Causes A P0453 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following: Open on FTP sensor signal wire Short to voltage on FTP sensor signal wire Bad FTP sensor Abnormally high pressure in fuel tank due to blockage in EVAP purge hoses or overfilled tank Loose/damaged FTP sensor connector Loss of ground to the sensor Possible Solutions Using an scan tool access FTP sensor value with Key on Engine off (KOEO). Normal value is usually somewhere near 2.5 Volts at atmospheric pressure (may fluctuate some due to altitude). It shouldn't ever be above 4.5 Volts. 1) If it is close to 2.7V with the gas cap off, the problem is likely intermittent. Using a Digital Volt Ohm Meter, measure the voltage on the signal wire while trying to induce the problem by wiggle testing all the wiring at the FTP sensor. If the voltage fluctuates when wiggle testing, check for connector problems; i.e. water in the connector, broken or chafed wiring. 2) If the value shown on the scan tool is above 4.5V, unplug the sensor (if possible) and check for voltage again. If the high voltage is still present when unplugged, inspect wiring harness for a short to voltage on the signal wire. If the high voltage disappears when unplugging the sensor, check for a good ground to the sensor and proper reference voltage. If you have a good ground and 5 Volts reference voltage, replace the FTP sensor since it's likely shorted out. Other EVAP DTCs: P0440 - P0441 - P0442 - P0443 - P0444 - P0445 - P0446 - P0447 - P0448 - P0449 - P0452 - P0455 - P0456

Hello again. I have the 2006 Nissan Altima 2.5S ......ok I had the issue bank 1 sensor 2 heater circuit low P0037 is the code I was getting. But when I connect the code reader it says that the heated 02...


O2 Emission Monitors & Evap Monitor-- are two
different systems

Get ALL your OBD Codes & work them one at a time,
& DO NOT Clear any data with code reader or removing
battery cable, or the monitors ALL have to run again

The heater may work in the sensor, but the sensor doesn't
switch fast enough or is worn out & the front sensors get
replaced at 100,000, before they fail or slow down

The Evap Codes will be needed, to work on that issue
That monitor runs last & only every few days

IF--- you had professional scan tool software, you would see
11 monitors & maybe 8 that run on your vehicle

There will be at least 2 for the O2,one for cylinder misfire,
one for evap, one for egr,& three others

My 99ram2500 bucks an missfires but if i remove cap from vacumm system it runs better


No-- it does not run better

Your letting in unmetered air & the oxygen
sensor sees that & the computer adds fuel
& your rpm goes up for awhile

Are the spark plugs over 3 years old?
Is the fuel pressure at motor correct
Does the misfire set a PO300 code
Does the check light stay lite or blink
Is the egr system working as it should
Any vacuum leaks,exhaust,evap system,
intake.
O2 Sensors over 100,000 miles,front ones
PCV vacuum leaks

See if you can get a road test with a professional
scan tool along & look at cylinder misfire counts &
fuel trim

Check engine light initially showed code for speed sensor,changed that & light came back on,now shows code 440 & 600,tried tightening gas cap & still comes on


Unfortunately the P0440 code could be a comdination of about 4 different possibilities within the EVAP System:

1. Fuel Cap loose or Not holding proper pressure causeing a leak in the EVAP System
2. EVAP Canister Purge Volume Control Valve
3. EVAP Canister Purge Control Valve
4. EVAP Canister Vent Control Valve

The Vent Control Valves are common for going bad and causing leaks in the EVAP System.

Now, the P0600 Code - ECM recieving incorrect voltage from A/T control Unit Continuously.

Unfortunately, my suggestion to you would be to take the vehicle to your local Nissan Dealer where they have the appropriate scan tools to monitor the EVAP System and the Transmission control System.

Hope this helps...

Evap code p0456


P0456 - Evaporative Emissions System - Small leak detected
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) at different times performs various tests on the EVAP system. OBD II Enhanced EVAP systems are in place to keep fuel tank vapors from venting into the atmosphere, and instead purges them into the engine to be burned. Regular pressure tests are conducted by the PCM to monitor the sealed system for leaks. The PCM monitors the EVAP system pressure by watching the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor. When the sensor indicates a small leak in the EVAP system, this code is set.
Potential Symptoms

There will likely be no noticeable symptoms other than the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL). This is because the EVAP system is a closed system and only controls fuel tank vapors, not engine management.

Causes: Usually this P0456 code is caused by an incorrect or faulty gas cap. Filling the fuel tank with the engine running could conceivable cause this code as well or if the cap wasn't properly tightened. Any of the following could also be the cause:
* A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
* A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
* The EVAP Canister may be leaking

Possible Solutions: First, using a scan tool activate the vent solenoid, sealing the system. Then monitor the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor. If the system is sealing properly, the number will stay consistent. If is isn't, the pressure sensor will show that as well. If the system slowly leaks, use a smoke machine and watch for smoke exiting the system at any EVAP component. Any where there is smoke exiting the system, that is the faulty component. Do not pressurize the EVAP system with air pressure. Doing so can damage the purge and vent solenoids in the system.


Hope this helps.

Evap and oxegen heater sensor won't reset on 01 la sabre


Where do you learn these things?

I understand very few people know
vehicle technology, but the questions
we get, are in nowhere land

Your code, I assume, is for a bad
O2 sensor heater-so you have to install
a new one. The parts heater failed

EVAP-is a complete system. It has
to be diagnosed and repaired.There
is no reset

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON ALL THE TIME I used scan tool got fault code PO455


This might help you to better understand the EVAP system and help diagnosing the code that was set. Basically there is a leak and you need to find it. Could be very hard to find without a smoke machine. I would take it into a shop to have it tested with a smoke machine and go from there. Some people might say to just replace the gas cap, but if that's not what it is, there is $20-30 wasted, when it could have been put towards an actual diagnoses that will actually help you to fix the problem DTC P0455 System Description
The control module tests the evaporative emission (EVAP) system for a large leak. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor signal to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. When the conditions for running are met, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve OPEN and the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve CLOSED . This allows engine vacuum to enter the EVAP system. At a calibrated time, or vacuum level, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve closed, sealing the system, and monitors the FTP sensor input in order to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. If the system is unable to achieve the calibrated vacuum level, or the vacuum level decreases too rapidly, this DTC sets. Hope i didn't confuse you.

What are some of the things that can make the engine light come on and then go off on my 95 corolla


Evap system will retest itself each key start. GAS cap tight, or leaving it run while putting gas into it? Engine missfire will flash when it is missing. Nothing else will let the ECM reset itself and turn the light off. It may have a Evap switch or sensor/solenoid that is sticking or failing. Scan the ECM at Autozone for free to get an idea what the concern maybe.
