Question about Buick Cars & Trucks
Google the Evap Code you got
If that sensor is on top of fuel tank,
you what has to be done
Use the internet to find the solution
Need a professional scan tool & maybe a smoke
machine to work on the Evap System.

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:
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.

First thing to check is the gas cap, make certain it is tight and the cap seal is not damaged or cut. In many cases this is the root cause for the P0455.
If that checks good, you want to check the vacuum hoses from the EVAP purge solenoid under the hood, all the way back to the EVAP canister. Make certain all are connected and not damaged or cracked.
Let me know.

Exhaust Gas Recirculation System Is the main problem here. the other code P0118 may be a bad temprature sensor or your thermostate needs to be changed. Last it could be a weak water pump.
So what is an EGR system and how does it work? EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation, and as its name implies, this system allows exhaust gasses from your car to be re-circulated into the engine, helping to reduce emissions. These systems are mostly comprised of the EGR valve, a DPFE (Delta Pressure Feedback EGR) sensor, hoses, a vacuum regulator, some vacuum lines, wiring, the computer and the exhaust tube leading to the valve itself.
The car's wiring can be tested in the normal fashion by looking for broken and lose wire, and all vacuum lines can be checked easily for cracks, leaks and correct routing.
The last thing i would then check is the the EGR valve, EGR vacuum regulator and DPFE sensor (or similar flow sensor).
I hope this helps and good luck

Finding a leak in these emission systems is almost impossible.
All it takes is a pin hole in a hose to screw up the whole system.
The best way to find the leak is to take and have a smoke test done on it. Smoke is injected into the system and where ever the leak is , the smoke will leak out of it. It's faster and more reliable then replacing hoses and other things you don't need. Call dealers, or repair shops to see who does smoke tests.

It is built onto the fuel pump. You can access the fuel pump in the trunk under the carpet. Remove the bolts from the rectangular cover and it is the black sensor pushed into the fuel pump housing.
