Hi, not sure what code you had, but if the repair was appropriate, give the car a day or so to clear the code. The EVAP system needs a good amount of road time to check itself out. If the code doesn't clear, please send me the code and I will advise on any additional things you can check.

Coolant is evaporating, & there's no leaks


If you are losing coolant in a modern automobile at any significant rate of loss, then there most certainly IS a leak. The most common source of undetected leakage is from a worn out water pump. Many newer cars have their water pump concealed in the area of the timing belt. Here the coolant leaks out and evaporates on the engine block before there is any ability to visually detect it. Even older cars that have external pumps have "weep holes" under the drive pulley to provide early detection of impeding failure. Often, however, these leaks also evaporate on the engine before detection as many of these pumps are hidden well behind and under other components. Water pumps also have the "magic" ability to not leak when the engine stops rotating, even while there is still pressure in the cooling system, so you rarely get any coolant puddling under the vehicle to give away the problem. If the vehicle has more than 70K miles and has never had the water pump replaced, that is probably the first thing I would check out.

3.3l engine. What are the probable causes of DTC P1495?


answer courtesy of engine codes .com Engine-Codes OBDII Code List P1495 Dodge
P1495 Dodge P1495 Dodge - EVAP Leak Detection Pump Solenoid Circuit Condition 3 ' Add Comment Possible causes
- Faulty Leak Detection Pump (LDP)
- Leak Detection Pump (LDP) harness is open or shorted
- Leak Detection Pump (LDP) poor electrical connection
What does this mean? When is the code detected?
Malfunction is detected when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detected the pump solenoid did not change status when activated,
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors
P1495 Dodge Description
The Evaporative emissions system is design to prevent the escape of fuel vapors from the fuel system. Leaks in the system, ca allow vapors to escape into the atmosphere. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage.
During the self-diagnostics, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) first checks the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for electrical and mechanical faults. If the first checks pass, the PCM then uses the LDP to seal the vent valve and pump air into the system to pressurize it. If a leak is present, the PCM will continue pumping the LDP to replace the air that leaks out. The PCM determines the size of the leak based on how fast/long it must pump the LDP as it tries to maintain pressure in the system.

What is a P2404 code mean from a suzuki sx4


Trouble Code: P2404 (2.0L L4 VIN 5 Automatic CVT)
Evaporative Emission System Leak Detection Pump Sense Circuit Range / Performance
Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
Trouble Code Conditions:
EVAP vent valve stuck open: EVAP leak check pressure is lower than -0.14 kPa even if EVAP vent valve is operated from OFF (OPEN) to ON (CLOSE) with EVAP leak detection pump ON. EVAP vent valve stuck closed: EVAP leak check pressure is unstable (difference between maximum and minimum is 0.36 kPa or more) when EVAP vent valve is OFF (OPEN) with EVAP leak detection pump ON. EVAP leak detection pump stuck OFF: EVAP leak check pressure is higher than -0.14 kPa even if EVAP leak detection pump is ON. EVAP leak detection pump flow high: Reference pressure of EVAP leak check pressure is lower than specified value (depending on BARO) EVAP leak detection pump flow Low: Reference pressure of EVAP leak check pressure is higher than specified value (depending on BARO).
Possible Causes:
  • EVAP leak detection pump (in EVAP leak check module) and/or its circuit
  • EVAP vent valve (in EVAP leak check module) and/or its circuit
  • EVAP leak check module and/or its circuit
  • ECM

Engine light stays on code p1494


P1494 code is a leak detection pump switch or mechanical fault, leak detection pump switch does not respond to input. The leak detection pump (if equipped) is located under the air filter housing on models through 2001. Check if the vapor and vacuum lines are securely connected to the leak detection pump or a diagonstic trouble code my be set like this. The leak detection pump switch may be bad and need replaced.

How do i replace the natural vacuum leak detection pump on a 2005 dodge dakota?


Vehicles equipped with NGC engine control modules use an NVLD pump and system. Vehicles equipped with JTEC engine control modules use a leak detection pump. Refer to Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for additional information.
The Natural Vacuum Leak Detection (NVLD) system is the next generation evaporative leak detection system that will first be used on vehicles equipped with the Next Generation Controller (NGC). This new system replaces the leak detection pump as the method of evaporative system leak detection. This is to detect a leak equivalent to a 0.020 (0.5 mm) hole. This system has the capability to detect holes of this size very dependably.


Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and support vehicle.
  2. Remove left-rear tire.
  3. Remove plastic shield (4) in front of left-rear tire. Access to both the EVAP canister (1) and NVLD pump (6) is from the area in front of the removed tire.
  4. Disconnect electrical connector at NVLD pump.
  5. Remove vapor line at NVLD pump. Pry outward on tab (3) and rotate pump (6) clockwise about 70 for removal.
  6. Remove NVLD pump O-ring (5) from EVAP canister (1).
To Install:
  1. Install new NVLD pump O-ring (5) to EVAP canister (1).
  2. Position NVLD pump (6) into EVAP canister (1).
  3. Rotate pump (6) until tab aligns with notch in EVAP canister (1).
  4. Carefully install vapor/vacuum lines to NVLD pump.
    WARNING The vapor/vacuum lines and hoses must be firmly connected. Check the vapor/vacuum lines at the NVLD pump, filter and EVAP canister purge solenoid for damage or leaks. If a leak is present, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may be set.
  5. Connect electrical connector to pump.
  6. Install plastic shield in front of left-rear tire.
  7. Install left-rear tire.

03 grand caravan ex 3.8. check engine light - code po456/evap sys small leek. tried new fuel cap, light still on. What hoses can I look for to find a leak?? or could it still be fuel cap and sensor needs...


Customer Concern: MIL on and code P0456 for a leak in the evaporative system. How to test the Leak Detection Pump (LDP). Tests/Procedures: 1. With the engine running, connect a test light to the Violet/White wire at the LDP. The test light should light.

2. Ground the center wire at the LDP. The test light should go out. This is the intake stroke of the pump. The LDP pulls in fresh air when the center wire is grounded with a vacuum supply to the LDP.

3. Remove the ground from the center wire and the test light should light up again. The pump has just pumped air into the evaporative system. The test light lights up when the diaphragm is in the down position.

4. To test the LDP for leaks, cap off the port that goes to the canister or to the vent valve. This is the port that is slightly above the bottom port that goes to the vent filter.

5. Now try to cycle the LDP again by grounding the center wire. The test light will still go out but now when the ground is removed from the center wire, the test light should remain out for at least 20 seconds if the LDP is good. Potential Causes: Leak Detection Pump (LDP)
