U could chek ur gas cap for tightness and oring around threads on cap may b deteriorated causing a bad seal against filler neck.u should b able to tell the difference between a good and bad oring. if ok then next best thing is to have the car checked at a garage where they can run a smoke test throughout the evap system to pin point any leaks in the system. the larger the leak the easier to find ,the smaller the leak the harder an more time consuming it is to find. good luck

I have a P0456 code on my 2003 Ford Expedition. Where is the vapor purge solenoid or the canister?


The information you are asking for varies depending on how the vehicle is equipped ie. ENGINE SIZE, AUTOMATIC or MANUAL TRANSMISSION, 2-WHEEL DRIVE, 4-WHEEL DRIVE, ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, etc.
With that said, it also deserves mention that there is a Technical Service Bulletin published by Ford Motor Company that applies to the model year and model that you have listed that involves Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0456.

Please note that this bulletin emphasizes the requirement of special equipment to properly diagnose and repair the DTC's listed in the bulletin. Below is a brief (partial) description of the bulletin:

ISSUE
Some vehicles may exhibit a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illuminated with Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0442, P0455, P0456, P0457 or P1442 or a "Check Fuel Cap" Lamp illuminated with DTC P0457 for the Evaporative Emission System. This may be caused by loose or leaking hoses, loose or broken fuel cap, a leak at the top of the fuel filler pipe neck, etc.
ACTION
Use the Rotunda Leak Detector Smoke Machine (Part 218-00001) or equivalent, to locate and repair leaks in the Evaporative Emission System.

I Have 7 codes on my 2000 Ford Taraus PO743, PO750, PO755, PO760, PO442, PO133, P1131. Would you be able to tell me what those problems are?


P0743 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Electrical
P0750 Shift Solenoid A
P0755 Shift Solenoid B
P0760 Shift Solenoid C
P0442 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)
P0133 O2 Sensor Circuit Slow Response - Bank 1 Sensor 1
P1131 Lack of Upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor Switch -Sensor Indicates Lean -Bank 1

The transmission has a problem with shifting, and the evaporative emission system has a small leak, the O2 sensor has a problem on Bank 1 Sensor 1 either in the sensor or wiring.

Engine running rough at low idle, codes are: P0171 System Lean (Bank 1) and P0455 Evaporative Emissions Leak (gross leak/no flow) 1998 ZX2, 2.0L 136,XXX miles. Only previous issues replaced timing...


First, make sure the gas cap is on tight(turn till it clicks) next, check for broken or disconnected
vacum lines around the top of the engine and intake manifold area. also check the vacum lines
to the purge canister and make sure there is no blockage in the lines. If the canister is bad the
charcoal filter material can get sucked into vac. lines and cause the no flow problem. Also check
the elec. connections for the purge valve(in vac.line from can. to intake manifold) and the vent
solenoid at the canister. Hope this helps.

At least the cap isn't loose for the gas tank.

I would clear the code with an OBD-II Scanner 'erase code' button, and see how long it takes for it to come back.

Engine seems to be burning oil. escort van 1.8 d year Y 2001 used 2.5 litres of oil within 3,000 miles no leaks showing and co is correct as just passed mot less than a week ago.


You should have the compression checked to see if the cylinders are in good shape. When a deisel starts to use oil, it burns it as it would fuel. The mot test is o/k because your emission system is working well. Hope this helps.Moe
