    It is possible, but if you have trouble code P0455, there are other problems that can cause the code. First, if you just put the new cap on, give the car a couple of days to run the test to see if the code will clear. The car needs time on the road to check for the leak. If the code doesn't clear, check the evap hose that runs from the gas tank to the evap cannister for leaks. Also check the hose that goes from the cannister to the engine. Along that hose, you will see the purge valve. Make sure the purge valve is not stuck open. Take the hose off and see if you can blow thru the valve. If it's stuck open, replace it.

I have a 2002 grand vitara suzuki the light of check engine soon is comming on I know the code is p.o. 442 . should I bring to the mechanic again? Thank you


First make sure your gas cap it tight. 3 clicks. On a 9 year old car I would replace the gas cap if the light does not go out after your tighten the cap, clear the codes, and drive it for a couple of days. It can also be a leak at one of the fuel vapor hoses or a leak in the EVAP system.

I have a 2002 grand am and less than a year ago had to replace cadalitic converter. The check engine light would come on once in awhile, and the car will start to bogg down. It started out as intermitent then eventually all the time. The smell may be the heating up of the converter.
