Runs good engine lt on code p0455


A loose gas cap or bad gas cap can cause this ,or filling gas tank while it running .or it could be a small leak in the evap system

Where is my evap located on a 1998 pontiac grand prix


which part of the evap system are you looking for. there are several components in your evap system. if you are looking for the evap canister it is located near the rear of the vehicle either on drivers side near the gas tank or just in front of the gas tank. it is a black plastic box with usually 2 vacuum lines running into it. if you are going off an evap leak engine code start with a new gas cap. a bad seal on a gas cap can cause the computer to read an evap leak. if that doesnt work then you may need to have a smoke test done at a local garage. basically they fill the evap system with smoke with a special machine then look for the smoke to appear from the leak in the system. again the evap system consists of several components that run from the engine to the gas tank. it circulates the vapor fumes from the gas back to the tank to be reburned so it does not get released into the atmosphere.

Smell of gas and whistling sound


Its all connected.
The computer uses a solenoid to vent the fumes from the tank when the engine is running.
The vapor canister holds the fumes until the vent valve is opened.
The computer tried to vent the tank and something went wrong.
It could be from the excessive heat or something with the venting system.
A mechanic would test the venting system.

Fuel leaks from filler pipe to gas tank


You don't need to replace the gas tank, the filler pipe is connected to a rubber hose which connects to the tank with clamps at each end.

Leaking Gas on left side of gas tank, can't tell if it's the line


More than likely you have a busted fuel line, or one of the connections from the fuel lines to the fuel pump is broken. If you know how to repair cars, drop the tank and find the leak. If you don't know how, have the vehicle towed to a shop. Driving the car would definitely be a fire hazard.

Why does my car smell like gas & uses way too much gas and is leaking gas on my engine out of a line?


I don't know if your stating that gas is leaking on your engine but anyways....other than the bad syntax in your sentence. You may have leaky injectors and there maybe too much fuel getting into your combustion chamber and getting stuck around the catalytic converter which will give you really bad gas mileage, smell like fuel and destroy you Cat.Converter. Start with injectors to see if they are leaking and check all fuel lines thoroughly. Also check your charcoal canister (black canister on the firewall) to see if its broken, cracked or leaking anything. If its very strong. Check near the tank itself. If you ever see fuel on the ground when you fill your tank, you may have a torn line at the tank or the seal around the gas tanks fuel sending unit is leaking is leaking. Good luck Plz rate

Gas line is leaking very close to tank. The leak is at the joint where the metal pipe coming from tank meets a rubber hose that runs to filter. It seems to be leaking right at this joint which seems to...


You want to be very careful not to make any sparks while working on this. The obvious is smoking, banging metal tools around, etc. keep cell phones AWAY from the area. Pick up some rubber fuel line from the parts store. Be prepared for some gas leakage, have a plastic pan under the leak. Disconnect the line at the tank, have a piece of new hose ready to push on over the line to as close to the tank as you can, have the end away from the tank plugged up temporarily with a pencil or something that fits snug in it, then remove the rubber hose on the filter, and connect new line from tank to filter, check for leaks, hopefully it is the rubber line you replaced, or the end of the metal line, so the new hose will hopefully cover the corroded leaking area. Clamp and Dry off area and see if you can spot any leaks.

After putting gasoline in my car


Raise the car w/ a jack and place on safety stands after your next fill up. Look at gas tank, vent hoses, fill hose, fuel lines , something is definitely leaking. It could be anything from rusty deteriorating gas tank, or fuel lines, to a loose connection of the fill pipe, rotted, split vent line, etc. Check this out asap as this sounds like a serious safety concern, you don't want to be driving a fire bomb
