Yes I am going through this issue right now on my 2008 Impala. The gas cap was replaced by the dealer and I still smell the smell and the light just came back on saying the same thing. EMISSION LEAK. Well I have a shop thats gonna look at it on Friday and they say it is a hose more than likely. I hope it is an inexpensive fix.....

Http:// this is a complete list of EVAP leak culprits. Most are very easy to fix. Finding a vacuum leak can be time consuming but is very easy to fix and very cheap.Most small vacuum leaks can be fixed with shrink tubing or a hose joiner of the right size.

P0455 definition

Technical Description Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (no purge flow or large leak)
What does that mean? This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine. you shouldn't notice any drivability problems.
Causes 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
Try checking the gas cap to see if it is loose. If it is tight then try replacing it. If that doesn't work then there is a hoe somewhere in the evap system. The easiest way to find this kind of leak is with a fogging machine. which means shop which means$$. You can check for yourself. Look for any disconnected hoes,etc. You might be able to hear if there is a vacuum leak when the car is running, it will be a hissing sound. If you can smell gas and the car isn't running, there is a leak somewhere.

Good luck and hope this helped.

2004 porsche cayenne i reset computer and now it will not start

Clearing Codes, clears all data, then all the emission
monitors have to run again, or you won't be excepted
to inspection

Clearing codes & data,has nothing to do with diagnosing
why you got the fault codes & fixing the problems

How would clearing a dash light help pass inspection?

Before you got down the street two houses, the light would
be back,the car has a failed system ,thus the light on the
dash after the motor is started.

You cleared all data,now a shop can't even work on it
You removed all vehicle history & codes

Flat bed it to a shop & they will make the repairs you neglected
to do, while trying to get hundred miles before the parameters
on a failed system went out of range & the dash light came back

Have 04 mercury grand marquis check engine light is on for code po452 had that fixed and light still on

Well ---PO 452 is still FTP Sensor Circuit Low Voltage Detected
new sensor or not

If the sensor reads less than .22volts with key on /engine off --you get a hard fault (code)

Check Sensor Connector

Sensor with no pressure or vacuum in tank is 2.4 to 2.8 volts
Key On/Eng Off On scan tool PIDS

You just need a shop with a data base & proper test procedure
or a different tech or different dealer.

Engine light on do to coolant system problem.. car runs it tested they said some code for the cooling system..please help if you know.. thanks...

Check engine light means emissions control system problem.
Who came up with the fault code. These codes are kind of
specific and usually indicate which sensor or component has
failed. If you didn't, have Mazda check it out. The only way
to permanently clear the light is to replace the defective part.
Don't advise driving too long with it on, could cause damage.

Engine light came on and gave me a code 1757 what does it mean

P1757 is a transmission code. This one probably wouldn't have failed you in the emissions inspection. The P0442 will, though. The P1757 is a transmission governer pressure switch fault. Either the switch is bad, or the wiring to the switch is bad. If this was a history code stored in your computer, this may have been a one time occurance. If it's a current code, you will be looking at this circuit. It's easiest diagnosed with a scantool.
