P0217 is coolant over temperature. the fan clutch may be slipping or the thermostat is bad. changing the thermostat would probably be the easiest and most inexpensive fix to determine the problem.

SOURCE: my 2002 xterra has started running hot..code po

Hi Code P 0217 does point to the thermostat but it also points to the wiring, cooling system, and the temperature sensor, to check the thermostat start engine then once the temperature gauge in the car reaches normal the thermostat should open and the top hose that goes into the radiator will warm up quickly as the thermostat opens, if the thermostat is stuck in it's open position the top hose will start warming up before the engine reaches it's working temperature, hopefully i have explained it clearly,

How do I clear the code PO455 after the repair?


You would need a scanner or code reader to erase the code.
Keep in mind code 455 is for a large leak so it could be something other than the gas cap.

p0456 was likely the gas cap, evaporative emission alert.

p1273
Either the exhaust is leaking or management needs reset.

'Clear the Self Learning Data' procedure. Anytime fuel component is replace, this procedure needs to be done. (exhaust emissions as well)

1. Unplug MAF sensor
2. Start car for about 3 seconds. Turn off car. confirm P0102 code
3. re-connect MAF sensor. Clear code. START car.
4. Run car for 10 mins.

I have a 2008 silverado PU. The engine code PO 449 and PO 455 shows. what problem are these codes


this is an obd2 trouble code table, it can help you understand the meaning of code.
for the p0445, the causes:
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
Possible Solutions:
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.
I know this tool can help you clear the code.

Po 440 code check engen


p0440 is an evaporitive emission system system large leak detected generally on an 02 gm vehicle it is very common that the vent solenoid located by the fuel tank if you replace it the light will take a few days to clear its self. the vehicle runs tests on all sensors and systems and the test has to pass or fail a number of times before the pcm will turn on or turn off a check engine light.

I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and I had a cjeck engine light come on. I diagnosed it with my OBD 11 and it came up with a 440 code. The gas cap is on tight, where do I go from here Thanks Keith


Take the gas cap off and put it back on then clear the code. This happens some times when the gas cap is put on wrong or not put on at all.
