05 Dodge Caravan gas tank air relief valve

does the gas pump shut off automatically?? when filling it is good. Change your fuel filter, and the valve is in the gas cap, your fuel pump is in the tank!!

Code p0442 and p0455. When I start the truck it takes about 5 seconds to actually start. If I turn it off and start it again, it starts right up.

Well code 442 is a small EVAP leak and 455 is a large leak. Those codes could be a faulty gas cap or any leak in the gas tank venting system including the gasket around the fuel pump. The engine computer pressurizes the gas tank when the engine is running to check for leaks.
The starting issue could be a faulty check valve in the fuel pump allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the gas tank.

bring this to a service repair center an have a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to sounds like the check valve in the fuel system is allowing the gas to drain back into the fuel tank, when u press the gas pedal it commands the fuel pump to pump extra gas into the system filling the fuel rails back up with fuel allowing it to start faster....

Fuel pump location

  1. You fuel pump is located next to the gas tank.. Relieve the fuel system pressure and drain the fuel tank. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Support the fuel tank and loosen the strap bolts.
  2. Disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel tank and disconnect the fuel pump's electrical connector.

  3. Access the fuel pump by lowering the fuel tank. Remove the locking ring on the fuel pump with a socket wrench and remove the fuel pump.

  4. Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit and tighten the locking ring to 40 foot lbs with a torque wrench. You will also need a torque wrench to tighten the main straps on the fuel tank to 40 foot lbs. and the T strap to 250 inch lbs.
