This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

Symptoms: You likely won't notice any drivability problems.

Causes: A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
* A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
* A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
* Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

Possible Solutions: With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
* Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
* Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
* Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary


Hope this helps (remember to rate thsi answer).

Check Engine Light comes on and off


head lights have nothing to do with check engine light.modifying exhaust if it has an EGR valve does turn the light on under acceleration.best is to not shut off the engine and read the code.

Engine light on do to coolant system problem.. car runs great...got it tested they said some code for the cooling system..please help if you know.. thanks...


Check engine light means emissions control system problem.
Who came up with the fault code. These codes are kind of
specific and usually indicate which sensor or component has
failed. If you didn't, have Mazda check it out. The only way
to permanently clear the light is to replace the defective part.
Don't advise driving too long with it on, could cause damage.

Did you have the check engine light reset? Did the light turn back on? You will have to probably install a pressure gauge ahead of each converter and see if one of them is plugged. You can use a pressure gauge in the hole for the O2 Sensor.
