Of course until you retrieve the code you will not know what you are dealing with. You can get a free scan at most auto parts stores which may help you. If the engine is running perfectly and you see no drop in fuel mileage then I would not worry too much about the light and you can put off the repair.

I would like to know what the code PO455 on a 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor means.


Possible causes
- Missing or loose fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
- EVAP system hose leaking
- Fuel tank leaking
help.jpg What does this mean? Tech notes
The P0455 it's a very common code, because the code is set if the gas cap is loose or missing. Start by tighten the gas cap and clearing the code. In most cases the code can be clear by disconnecting the car battery for about 30 minutes.
help.jpg What does this mean? When is the code detected?
Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) control system has a very large leak such as fuel filler cap fell off, EVAP control system does not operate properly.
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors
P0455 Mitsubishi Description
This diagnosis detects leaks in the Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) purge line using engine intake manifold vacuum. If pressure does not increase, the Engine Control Module (ECM) will check for leaks in the line between the fuel tank and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve under the following vacuum test condition.
The vacuum cut valve bypass valve is opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP canister vent control valve will then be closed to shut the EVAP purge line off. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is opened to depressurize the EVAP purge line using intake manifold vacuum. After this depressurization is implemented, the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve will be closed.

My 2001 Grand am gt has a service engine soon light on and it wont go off we took it in and it was ok they said it was a gas cap problem but there are no sensors on it anyidea on how to fix it?


Replace the gas cap a faulty gas cap will cause this to light up if they checked for codes and there were no codes change out the gas cap. Gas caps can and do go bad they get to where they no longer maintain the pressure within Causing your check engine light to light up.

sounds like either you have 2 of the wires crossed.........one is loose....probably #1 or your #1 plug needs regapped or is not tight and losing seal....all will cause a misfire and set the check engine light

Service engine soon light 2004 Alero


if it truly set code for "loose fuel cap" or po455 large leak, then tightening the cap and driving a couple days should reset on its own. if not then get it checked for free at autozone and report back with code # and can help from there. they'll ck for free but are not allowed to reset.
