I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 SEDONA. I HAVE HAD IT TO SEVERAL DEALERS AND ALL HAVE THE SAME ANSWER, THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. SO I JUST FORGET ABOUT IT. CHECK YOUR WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID, ENSURE IT IS FULL, TRANSMISSION FLUID, ENGINE OIL, BRAKE AND POWER FLUID, THE NORM. IF NONE OF THIS WORKS, DON'T SPEND ALOT WORRYING ABOUT IT.

Why my check engine light wont go out


Because you, or a technician should check the engine. There would be anything wrong, or else the light would not stay on.

My car is a 2000 Honda accord, engine light came on checked gas cap,it was ok,shop checked it with machine and code P 1457 came up.What does it mean, & and how do i fix it?


P1457 90 EVAP Emission Control System Leak Detected (Control Canister System) Possible causes
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
It means that your fuel tank isn't airtight. It could be a crack in the filler pipe, a loose hose or even a blown gasket at the fuel gauge sender.
Your car does a vacuum check on the fuel system now and then. If it detects it's not air tight, it throws a code. Now, the gas capis the most common thing. But from the fuel filter to the filler neck something is not right. Look for a small gas leak, stick your head under the car and give it a whiff. see if you smell it, if you have a garage put sheets of news paper under your car over night and see if any leeks drip on it. There's other things but try those first.

Check Engine or
Malfunction indicator light (MIL)
The Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light or an icon resembling the engine is called, in technical terms, the Malfunction Indicator Light or MIL. The MIL light comes on when your vehicle's computer detects a fault that can affect your vehicle's fuel economy and emissions. There is no button to reset the Check Engine light, but if the fault that caused it doesn't happen again, the light will turn off by itself. If the MIL light stays on, have the problem checked out, because in some cases, the problem could get worse if not repaired in time. Think of the Check Engine light as an early warning sign. To check why your MIL light came on, your dealer or mechanic will have to diagnose your car with a special scan tool.

Error code 340 & 457


  • P0340 - Camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction.
  • P0457 - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (fuel filler cap loose/off)

    There is a bulletin #0398 posted on 05/12/2003 for P0457 - Malfunction indicator lamp (mil) illumination with diagnostic trouble codes p0442, p0455, p0456, p0457, p1442 or check fuel cap lamp illuminated with diagnostic trouble code p0457.

I'd suggest checking with your local dealer, as it may be a fix that is covered by the dealer.

Obd code p0457 fuel cap replaced mil reset defect not cleared connection checked ok


The code is for a large leak in the EVAP system such as a loose or missing gas cap. But it could also mean a loose or missing hose to the canister or other leak in the tank.
The computer vents the tank several times an hour while the engine is running, and it checks the system by pressurizing the gas tank. If the tank will not hold pressure the code is set.
You may have to check the top of the tank where the fuel pump gasket is, as well as the vent lines to the front of the car.
A mechanic would perform a smoke test to look for leaks.

My 1998 honda accord check engine light Is on. And there are two p codes 1259 and 1456. how to fix?


Fuel filler cap is loose. 1456

Tighten *at least SIX* clicks. Wait three engine on-off cycles. Light
should go off.

If it does not go off, the cap may not fit tightly enough for a proper
seal. Replace cap. Occasionally, the threads in the filler necks can be
damaged, preventing the cap from being properly tightened.

I Own 98 dodge Dakota check Engine light, code PO 442 Evap Emission Control System Leak (small). Gas fill pipe is rusted, Should flapper hold back air with gas cap removed?


No the flap inside the fuel filler pipe is just an anti theft device to make it more difficult to siphon fuel out of the tank. The most likely cause for the code it the fuel cap itself. If you don't get the gas cap tight after you fuel up, it can set a computer code and turn on the Check Engine Light. After you check to make sure the cap is on tight, clear the engine code and see if it comes back on. If it does then have the fuel cap tested to make sure that it doesn't have a vaccuum leak.
