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.
Regards,

Usually the source of the leak is the gas cap (either loose or defective) but if that doesn't apply to your issue then the canister is next to the gas tank.

SOURCE: buick does not start when theft system comes on

I had the same problem with ours...

It ia a faulty ign switch lock (the sensor) > Expensive part >

Temp fix;

remove the cover underneath the steering column and locate the thin white flat (3) wire (runs from the ignition key lock down to a connector.

After starting the the car , dis-connect the connector under the dash that the Ign lock goes to , after that the car should start everytime.

You will need to replace the lock assy. if you want to fix this correctly ; I have been using ours for (6) months > no problem except the "Theft System " light stays on -

Our 96 buick regal 3.8 seems slow to heat up. I've replaced the water pump awhile ago and then thermostat. Takes about 10 mins to show warming on the guage. I think I vented out bubbles in system properly....


Since you have gone through most of what I would have suggested, the only items left are a possible vacuum control at the heater hose or a partially plugged heater core.....

I need the fault codes. Without the codes I can't help, just to many possibilities. Have never heard of any fault code that cited Auxiliary emission control sensors" in my 35 years of emission repair on all makes and models. Sooooo... have the fault code(s) read again and write them down. Autozone does this test for free.

89 regal won,t start but after 5 or 10 min. runs great


sounds like your fuel pump is going out. One thought might be that the fuel filter is causing enough resistance to over heat the pump. I would check the fule pressure to determine a free flow of fuel.

1993 buick regal start and stall


The average life of a battery is 3 good years, regardless how BIG, or how it cost. Anything after that is a blessing. Personally, I would replace the battery ASAP, and then with a FULLY CHARGED battery. Then drive, and see if the problem still remains. Hope this helps
