It isn’t a check engine light problem. Unless moisture has been able to get into your fuel tank. You can purchase that hose from most auto parts stores.

2004 ford freestar only surges at 50 plus mph?

Sound like you may need a fuel tank OR a filler tube. First though you need to call FORD and see if they have a RECALL on the fuel tanks for this issue. This could be causing you surge as well, OR if you haven't already changed the EGR Valve I would suggest you fix both of these problems. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

2000 Ford Expedition My Expedition (4.6L V-9 2WD) has had an intermittent problem of cutting out. The Check Engine light was not coming on - so I figured it is not a misfire. It drove just like it had...

Continuous Memory Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0446 or P1450 indicates that Self-Test has detected the Evaporative Emission Control System has excessive fuel tank vacuum. Also, a DTC P0446 indicates a vent control malfunction.

Possible causes:

EVAP canister purge outlet tube (EVAP canister purge valve to EVAP canister) blockages or kinks.

EVAP canister tube (fuel tank to EVAP canister) blockages or kinks.

Fuel vapor elbow on EVAP canister contaminated.

Restricted EVAP canister.

Canister vent (CV) solenoid stuck closed (partially or fully).

Plugged or contaminated CV solenoid filter.

EVAP canister purge valve stuck open.

Fuel filler cap stuck closed (no vacuum relief).

VREF circuit open in fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor.

Damaged FTP sensor. (fuel tank pressure)

Check for kinks or bends in the fuel vapor hoses/tubes (EVAP canister purge outlet tube and EVAP canister tube).

Visually inspect EVAP canister inlet port, CV solenoid filter and canister vent hose assembly for contamination or debris.

Check CV solenoid filter for blockage or contamination.

The common things I've seen are are mud in the canister and the canister vent solenoid being shot or the wiring to the canister vent solenoid being torn off. The resistance of the solenoid should be 48-65 ohms..
Pick up a Chiltons book and will give you a diagram of where exactly you find the canister. They are like $15 at any auto store. Good luck

An error code of 0457 came up. any idea what that is?

P0457 FORD - EVAP Control System Leak Detected (Fuel Filler Cap Loose/Off)
EVAP control system has a very large leak such as fuel filler cap fell off, EVAP control system does not operate properly.

Vehicles that meet enhanced evaporative requirements utilize a vacuum-based evaporative system integrity check. The evap system integrity check uses a Fuel Tank Pressure Transducer (FTPT), a Canister Vent Solenoid (CVS) and Fuel Level Input (FLI) along with the Vapor Management Valve (VMV) or Electric Vapor Management Valve (EVMV) to find 0.040" diameter or larger evap system leaks. Federal vehicles can utilize a 0.040" leak check rather than the 0.020" leak check required for California vehicles (click over pic for zoom).


- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors

Possible causes:
- Missing fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap

Possible solution:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap

Tech notes:
It is a very common problem with Ford vehicles. There are service bulletins for the following vehciles:
1997-2000 Ford CONTOUR
1997-2002 Ford ESCORT
1998-2003 Ford ESCORT ZX2
2000-2003 Ford FOCUS
2002-2003 Ford THUNDERBIRD
1997 F-250 Ford HD
1997-1999 Ford Ford F-250 LD
1999-2003 Ford F SUPER DUTY
2000-2003 Ford EXCURSION

Also, in this link could check this Ford Bulletin.

2004 gmc sierra ext cab z-85 message screen will flash tighten fuel cap a couple of times and then the check engine light comes on. this has happened a couple of times before and the check engine light...

Your vehicle does two types of evaporative leak detections by the on board diagnostics. Depending on the test your a getting a gross leak detection fault this is usually caused by a faulty fuel cap that is not holding the vapor in the tank. The tests have to be done under set conditions so the problem will only occur when the test is commanded and the test fails. You will get the fuel cap then the check engine light.

Fuel leaking out near the filler tube. would this be fuel line coming out the tank? The fuel leaks out only when the ingnition is on and the engine running.

if it is after the car have run or while on park i should say its the line coming from the tank. But since its while the car is running then its the fuel lines that is connected to the fuel pump .It will leak because of while the car is running , the fuel from the tank going to the filler tube . then it will pass to the fuel pump and it will leak while the car is running . therefore you should check on the fuel line that is connected to the fuel pump, which near the filler tube.good day.

Code P0457

was the CEL on and fuel cap light on before you had the fuel pump replaced? if it was after the repairs were performed, double check all evaporative emissions lines, hose, and connection on and around the fuel tank. also make the the fuel filler neck is properly seated and clamped to fuel tank. if all good, check the plastic fuel filler top (just behind fuel door, where you put fueling nozzle) make sure it is not chipped or cracked anywhere. especially where the rubber seal from the cap rides.

Engine light and fuel filler assembly

I need to change the fuel filter, does anyone know where it is located?

Check engine light on - steady, not blinking. The manual says the gas cap may not have been put on tight (didn't seem to make the light go out) or that it's something with the emissions system?

I had the same problem , 99 subudu code po420 , the problem was air leaking into the fuel system , cause was from the gas filler tube to the gas tank. it was rotted so i replaced the filler tube( thats where you screw your gas cap onto and it goes down to the tank ) and cleared the code and haven't had a problem since.
