SOURCE: Leak in evap system, where and what is an evap system. 2001 mitsubishi Galant

I have the same failure that occurred when smogging my Ford Ranger. The EVAP test was just added a couple of years ago and it tests for leaks in the gas tank vapor recovery system. What this is a system of vapor recovery lines that connect from the gas tank and goes to a canister then returns to the intake and on the next engine start and gets used, instead of leaking into the air.

The only issue is these lines can develop a leak at any of the connection points or along the rubber portions and can be a pain to replace depending on your application. So until you fix the leak you will fail this test since they pressurize the system and if there is a leak it won't hold the pressure.

Location of coolant temp sensor 2000 crown vic


If the sensor was the problem you would have a check engine light on, the fan is operated by the powertrain control module which controls a relay module. You must have the dealer run a scan of the system ans do an active test on the fan operation to determine what is wrong.

Running hot with no leaks


You would need to check the components of the cooling system, such as the thermostat and cooling fan, also things like a blocked exhaust.

An error code of 0457 came up. any idea what that is?


P0457 FORD - EVAP Control System Leak Detected (Fuel Filler Cap Loose/Off)
EVAP control system has a very large leak such as fuel filler cap fell off, EVAP control system does not operate properly.

Vehicles that meet enhanced evaporative requirements utilize a vacuum-based evaporative system integrity check. The evap system integrity check uses a Fuel Tank Pressure Transducer (FTPT), a Canister Vent Solenoid (CVS) and Fuel Level Input (FLI) along with the Vapor Management Valve (VMV) or Electric Vapor Management Valve (EVMV) to find 0.040" diameter or larger evap system leaks. Federal vehicles can utilize a 0.040" leak check rather than the 0.020" leak check required for California vehicles (click over pic for zoom).

2000 crown vic motor overheating and freezing up after 1/2 hour. New oil, fan, thermostat. water level ok. A/C was on.


Is the engine itself hot? or the car? If the engine is warm, check the engine coolant, and see if their are any holes or leaks..
