Question about Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

My 2000 Dodge Intrepid gave me the codes P0442, P0455, P0340. The first two have to do with the emission control system. The last one is the cam shaft position sensor. Can you tell me if they are expensive to fix/replace? I've called several garages and they tell me that I would have to bring my car in so they can hook it up to their computer. They won't even accept my codes. Seems they just want to make some extra money.

I replaced a camshaft position sensor on an Intrepid with the 2.7L V6 a few years back. Very straightforward job, sensor is on the front of the left cylinder head, and accessible. Sensor cost about $30 (a few years ago). I would suspect that the 3.5L V6 is about the same.

SOURCE: OBD 2 codes p0442 and p0455, also smell of fuel from ventalation system

These codes indicate a leak(s) in the fuel system, it can be anywhere, you will have to crawl under and try and see where the leak is, you will need a scanner to turn off the light after repairing the leak(s)

Yes, the P1684 on the Chrysler line does not indicate a fault. My sebring had codes p0442 and p0456 both indicating very small evep leaks. When I did the 3 time switch on of the ignition, the odometer readout gave me the p1684 first and then the other two. The scanner at the garage only indicated two "very small evap leaks" one for the second two codes. Clearly the first is a status indicator such as recent battery disconnect or another non problematic indicator. Wouldn't it be great if these manufacturers at least gave you the information to identify what their dummy lights are telling you so you didn't have to go on faith at the garage?

have the gas cap tested or just replace it, then disconnect the battery for 5 minutes to reset the code, then drive it for a few miles and see if problem comes back, if it does a trip to the dealer is in order, as this may be covered by your emission warranty which is good for 70,000 miles.

The code P1684 is real easy. The computer is stating that the battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts.

Three codes p0442 p0340 p0742 2006 Hyundai accent 1.6 it cranks but will not start ?


The first code is for an evaporative emission canister leak and it might be due to a gas cap. The second one is for a cam sensor circuit problem and this will keep the vehicle from starting. The third error is for the transmission torque converter.

Error code 340 & 457


  • P0340 - Camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction.
  • P0457 - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (fuel filler cap loose/off)

    There is a bulletin #0398 posted on 05/12/2003 for P0457 - Malfunction indicator lamp (mil) illumination with diagnostic trouble codes p0442, p0455, p0456, p0457, p1442 or check fuel cap lamp illuminated with diagnostic trouble code p0457.

I'd suggest checking with your local dealer, as it may be a fix that is covered by the dealer.

P0455 and p0442


p0455-- emission control system ( a large leak ) the most common cause is a bad seal on fuel cap, remove and replace cap, if light stats on. replace cap. if not the cap it could be any where in emission system. p0442 is--same as above. Code p0442 indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. To fix this problem, remove and reinstall the gas cap. Clear the codes and drive to see if the codes reappear. If the code appears again replace the gas cap or inspect the system for cuts or holes in the tube or hose. good-day !

Code p0340 on 2000 dodge intrepid


it might be the cam shaft sensor it might be the crank shaft sensor the best thing to do is replace them bolth. but it does sound like it may be either one because if one goes out the other will still work but when starting the car it will take longer for it to read from either or the one sensor that is still working because they work together to tell the system to deliver the gas. im pretty positive that it is either the cam or crank shaft sensor

Error codes p0442 & P0455


Those are both Evaporative Emission Control System related.
442 is a small leak has been detected.
455 is a bigger leak has been detected.
Check all your connections, (electrical & vacuum lines) as well as check for any cracked, loose vacuum hoses in the system, as well as clean "O" ring on your gas cap well and threads in filler pipe & make sure gas cap is tight. Do the gas cap first & see if codes dissappear, but it may take a new gas cap. These codes commonly appear shortly after getting gas, due to cap not back on tight.
