SOURCE: smelling gas when just filled up tank on Ford Focus 2000

Now, in the past year, when I fill the gas tank, I can smell gas fumes inside the car (remember, it's a wagon).
I have a lot of customers that run into this problem and get the same answers from the dealers.
Given the age of the car and that it has been in a accident, here is what I would look for first.
1. First, because of the accident I would look to see if all the work was performed properly around the gas tank. Check the filler neck to make sure that all hoses and clamps are tight and in good shape, if cracked or it has any bad spots in it, replace it. The tech. that repaired the car could have missed something by accident; this is always a good place to start with by double-checking the work that was done.
2. I've had the Fuel Pump replaced twice due to recall. Another possibility, when they installed the fuel pump they may not have put the seal in right or it could have slipped. There is usually a rubber ring that goes between the tank and the pump and it might have moved during installation. When you fill the tank to the top it may come out because the seal slipped out of position.
3. I'm not sure on this model but on a lot of the newer cars they have been mounting the charcoal canister in the quarter panel next to the fuel neck but it may be hidden behind a plastic cover. The charcoal canister may have been damaged from the accident or it could just be defective and when you fill the tank up it may be going into the canister and fumes are coming from it or gas may be leaking out of it.
4. I have found that some of my customers have been over filling the tank trying to put as much as they can squeeze into the tank, this is not a good idea. When it gets hot outside, the gas expands and has no where to go except into the canister or lines of the canister, this system is not meant to handle gas, it is only meant to handle fumes. You will smell gas if you try to over fill the tank. When you fill it at the station you should let it click off. Just try rounding it off to the fifty cent mark, (example: $10.03 only go to $10.50 not $11.00) this will help you to keep from over filling the tank and neck of the tank. Over filling the tank can clause damage to the canister and components in this emission system.
These are things that the average person with some mechanical knowledge can check out on their own. After this point, it will usually have to be looked into by a fully qualified tech. with good trouble shooting skills that can follow the flowcharts to find the problem.

SOURCE: locating vacuum canister and testing it

The purge solenoid should be in the hard plastic vent lines that run under the tube between the intake and the air filter, ablove the transmission, it is common for vibration holes to be worn in the hard plastic tubes causing a vacuum leak. The purge solenoid is small and it has an electric wire coming from it. I 'think' your canister is in the front lower left corner under the hood, you may have to remove splash shields to see it. The problem is most likely in the hard plastic lines at the solenoid. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: My check engine light comes

There is a problem for sure if it wont let you fuel, i would go to another shop it sounds like this shop is not too good, your problem could be a stuck closed vent valve or a blocked vent hose, may have a sipers web blocking the vent hose. whats happening is the system is not venting and it turns on the eng light and also when you are fueling its building pressure and shuts pump off, the air is not venting out , good luck.

Computer code 455


Possible causes - Missing or loose fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
- EVAP system hose leaking
- Fuel tank leaking The P0455 it's a very common code, because the code is set if the gas cap is loose or missing. Start by tighten the gas cap and clearing the code. In most cases the code can be clear by disconnecting the car battery for about 30 minutes.

When is the code detected? EVAP control system has a very large leak such as fuel filler cap fell off, EVAP control system does not operate properly. Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors P0455 Buick Description This diagnosis detects leaks in the Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) purge line using engine intake manifold vacuum. If pressure does not increase, the Engine Control Module (ECM) will check for leaks in the line between the fuel tank and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve under the following vacuum test condition. The vacuum cut valve bypass valve is opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP canister vent control valve will then be closed to shut the EVAP purge line off. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is opened to depressurize the EVAP purge line using intake manifold vacuum. After this depressurization is implemented, the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve will be closed.
if tightening the cap or replacing the cap does not help take your car to a shop to have it diagnosed as it requires special tools/equipment to test this and get an accurate results to find what needs replacing.

Why does gas cap light come on even after replacing with new oem cap


Thats because there is a bad sensor (vacuum pressure) located on the top of the fuel tank. Could be a vacuum leak somewhere else, improper vacuum line connection @ intake vacuum source,or a bad solenoid vacuum switch. my guess-bad snsor.

Obd code p0457 fuel cap replaced mil reset defect not cleared connection checked ok


The code is for a large leak in the EVAP system such as a loose or missing gas cap. But it could also mean a loose or missing hose to the canister or other leak in the tank.
The computer vents the tank several times an hour while the engine is running, and it checks the system by pressurizing the gas tank. If the tank will not hold pressure the code is set.
You may have to check the top of the tank where the fuel pump gasket is, as well as the vent lines to the front of the car.
A mechanic would perform a smoke test to look for leaks.

Replacing the evaporator


Doubtful if this needs replacing - is usually only cracked vacuum lines around this unit or under the hood, or the gas-cap is not sealing on the tank fill tube.
This unit is usually under the vehicle near the rear axle, gas tank or in the middle of the vehicle.  Check all the vaccuum lines for cracks and replace.
Cannisters don't usually go bad unless you over-fill your tank to top and gas gets into it.  Don't fill car to limit - ever!
Check all wiring around the cannister and vacuum lines on the engine prior to replacing anything.
Hope this helps a bit.

Evap system vapor pressure I keep getting this when the check engine light comes on does any body have any suggetion? 2000 Chevy Blazer 4.3L vortec 4x4


Start with the simple and replace the gas cap, and see if the check engine light goes out after a day or so. Post me back the DTC codes just to make sure it's not the EVAP purge valve on the intake manifold by the ignition coil.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

What does diagnostic code PO455


A code p0455 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)
  • Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, 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, and/or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary.

May have a vacuum line leaking, engine light comes and said it was gas cap, replaced that and it still comes on. how many vacuum hoses are on my ram? Dodge Ram 2001 club cab magnum engine.


Many vacuum lines, but if it indicated a bad cap it should just diagnose the fuel vapor system. Your unit is 8 years old. Check the filler tube to see if the hose clamps rusted off. Being a bearer of bad tidings it could also mean the tank is rusted and has a hole in it. You can check the vapor cannister under the hood, your PVC valve, and vacuum hoses under the hood. Radiator shops can repair gas tanks and they should be able to pressure test your system on the vehicle without taking everything off.

I have a p0441 fault on my 2003 dodge neon. i changed the canister purge solenoid and the light went off for about a month and just came back on what could cause this?


Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow The "EVAP purge flow" faults are issues between the carbon cannister and the intake. The EVAP leak detection generally concerns the fuel tank to carbon cannister plumbing. A little background. The EVAP or evaporative emission system is a control system to keep vapors from evaporation in the fuel tank from getting into the atmosphere. The fuel tank is not vented, but rather the vapors are piped to the carbon cannister (usually located behind the pass. side front wheel) where the charcoal element absorbs the vapor. This is actually a vapor "storage" device. Under certain engine operating conditions, the ECU activates the Cannister Purge Valve (N80) which opens and allows the engine vacuum to **** the fuel vapors back out of the carbon cannister. This purges the vapor, allowing the cannister to absorb more vapor. This evap system has been on vehicles since the '70s. As part of the OBDII standard effective for 1996 cars and newer, it was mandated that leaks in the systems must be detected and reported as a fault which will set the Check Engine Light (CEL). To detect leaks, the system is pressurized by a pump so that leaks can be detected by a lack of appropriate pressure in the system. If there is a leak, such as a cracked vent hose, loose (or leaky) gas cap, poorly installed or defective O-rings on the fuel level senders on the fuel tank, etc. a code will be set. On the cannister to intake side, leaks are detected by deviations in the idle control system. If you have leaks in the lines from the carbon cannister to the intake, intake leaks, a defective purge valve, etc you will often get purge flow faults. My first recommendation is to closely inspect all the small vacuum lines connected to the intake manifold. The corrugated plastic lines are often the culprits, as well as the fabricate covered vacuum lines. Also consider replacing the gas cap.
