Question about 2000 Plymouth Breeze

I have a 2000 Plymouth Breeze. I recently had it smogged, and it failed due to an evap system leak. What does this mean; can I fix it myself; and if not, will it put a big dent in my wallet?

That is almost always caused by a bad gas cap-less than $10

Leak in evap system, where and what is an evap system. 2001 mitsubishi Galant


I have the same failure that occurred when smogging my Ford Ranger. The EVAP test was just added a couple of years ago and it tests for leaks in the gas tank vapor recovery system. What this is a system of vapor recovery lines that connect from the gas tank and goes to a canister then returns to the intake and on the next engine start and gets used, instead of leaking into the air.

The only issue is these lines can develop a leak at any of the connection points or along the rubber portions and can be a pain to replace depending on your application. So until you fix the leak you will fail this test since they pressurize the system and if there is a leak it won't hold the pressure.

Jetta failing smog due to non communication with OBD - Suggestions?


the no data error can be contributed to a bad interface cable or the scaqn tool was configured wrong and therfore could not connect to the ecm. I would recommend having a scan done again by a certiefied volkswagon tech chances are the mechanics used the wrong adapter cable or reader card. your smog problem could be that your evap canister is clogged therfore gives a bad reading.unfortunately you have to have a scan done but try an independant small shop that delas exclusively with foreign cars such as porche andd mercedez. the will have the correct scan tool and will be much cheaper than a dealership. your cost should be no more than 50 dollars US ... please rate this. thanks
