Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Check engine light with error cod P0456 Sebring 2.7L 2004

I have been having a rash of error codes the last time I brought it to Advanced Auto Parts and they told me my code showed a bad gas cap. I replaced gas cap disconnected my battery for 10 minutes and the check engine light went away for about a month. Now It gives me P0456. Is this caused by sensor or the processor that monitors the sensor. I think this car is a hypochondriac. It's always looking for something to be broken and finding it.

Any help is much appreciated

    the code is related to the evaporative system. i believe you either have a cracked vapor line that runs from your fuel tank or a faulty purge solenoid/leak detection pump. start checking your evaporative system for leaks. hope this helps

2004 chrysler sebring sedan won't start

Hi Angela, when you try starting now, does the motor actually turn over, your extreme temps may have an effect also because so many of your motors in the US over the last month have become frozen internally and when tried to start have broken things that have never been a problem before, we can do this 1 at a time, cheaper and more reliable

2004 Chrysler Sebring won't start with P0700 error code

Code P0700 just means the trans computer has a code. You need to have the trans computer read to get the trans code p0034 the rubber turbo hose to the inlet manifold which had a small split in it causing it to loose pressure these codes will not make your car not start check battery to see if its dead again does the engine turn over at all when you put battery back in car is terminals tight

I have a 99 dodge grand caravan. Over the weekend the check engine light came on. I stopped at Advanced Auto Parts and had them check it for the code. Nothing came up and the light eventually went off....

The flashing engine light indicates that one or more cylinders are misfiring. If possible take to Advanced again and have them give you the code numbers. If you post the codes in here we may be able to help find a solution to your issue. Would start with basic things first such as inspecting wires and plugs for damage.

If engine is quiet as usual, lots of oil in sump,( Check dipstick)--Usually the light will reset after a certain time period--unless other problem. If over 100,000 miles --have oxygen sensor tested.

You'll need to find out the code that is related to the check engine light. Auto Zone or Advanced Auto can get the codes from the car. That should get you in the general direction.

I have an 03 Ram 1500, engine light is on, I had

p0440 - Evap. system performance (this could be something as simple as not turning the gas cap several times after you fill up.

p0456 - Evap leak monitor Small leak detected. - Could be related to the previous code.

p2106 - Throttle Actuator Control System - Forced limited power : This one you might have noticed the vehicle running rough, overdrive not working properly and cruise control will not set.

p2175 - Throttle Actuator Control System - Low airflow detected.

What you might want to try first is have the codes cleared which most auto parts stores offer this for nothing (unless you have a programmer then you can do it yourself). Pour in some fuel injector cleaner into your gas, put a new air filter on. And when you fill up your gas tank, crank the cap several times when you put it back on.
See if the codes come back on after that.
