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.

This code is refering to an area close to where you fill your gas tank. There is a box back there that has a job of capturing the gas vapors from your gas tank the computer in your car has found a problem in that system but it would depend on what the code said (small leak ) would be the evap box has a leak. If the code said (gross leak) it is a loose gas cap or bad gas cap . If it is the evap box you will need to have a shop hook up a smoke machine to find the leak

P0442 - Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak)
This indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system.
Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.
You likely won't notice any drivability problems.
A code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
Other small leak in EVAP system
Faulty vent o-ring seal
Possible Solutions: with a P0442, the most common repair is to:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
