P0455 indicates that the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) control system detected a large leak or no purge flow. has nothing to do with the exhaust, unless, the leaking hot exhaust gases burned up a hose of some other part of the EVAP system.

Testimonial: "yes this helped,but now i need to know how to fix it or what to look for"
Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?
When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.
EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.
You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)
MOVE the car to outdoor.
Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.
DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.
Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.
