An evap code is common with these cars when the gas cap is not tight enough. Make sure you always tighten the cap a minimum of 3 clicks. Try tightening the cap and resetting the code to see if it comes back on.

Good Luck!

What hoses do I check for check engine light code Po455

DTC P0455 Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) System Large Leak
The control module tests the evaporative emission (EVAP) system for a large leak. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor signal to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. When the conditions for running are met, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve OPEN and the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve CLOSED . This allows engine vacuum to enter the EVAP system. At a calibrated time, or vacuum level, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve closed, sealing the system, and monitors the FTP sensor input in order to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. If the system is unable to achieve the calibrated vacuum level, or the vacuum level decreases too rapidly, this DTC sets.
There's more to it that just checking a hose ! Smoke testing the EVAP system is the best way to find leaks .
  1. Inspect the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System for the following conditions:
  2. ?€¢
    A loose, missing, or damaged service port schrader valve

    A loose, incorrect, missing, or damaged fuel fill cap

    A damaged EVAP canister purge solenoid valve

  3. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
  4. Inspect the EVAP system for the following conditions:
Any disconnected, improperly routed, kinked, or damaged EVAP pipes and hoses

A damaged EVAP canister vent solenoid valve or EVAP canister

Your best bet is take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer , where they have the tools an knowledge .

My Pontiac Grand Am 2003 service engine soon light is flashing on and off while I was driving

It is probably going to be a misfire code, but I can't make any promisses. I would take it by Autozone or O'Reily's. They will scan it for trouble codes free of charge. The flashing light means you need to have it scanned urgently. It could be something pretty major so don't wait. Go now, your car will thank you:)

2005 dodge neon 2.0. Check engine light reads 0441 leak in evap system also has poor idle and occasionally will not start. Replaced plugs and wires. When car doesn't start I have taken the IAC valve off...

The P0441 shouldn't cause a no start it is indicating there is a problem in the evap system related to the EVAP solenoid, EVAP solenoid vacuum supply or the NVLD switch which is a switch that vents the tank at proper times. I would do a fuel pressure check if it starts at times with carb cleaner. there may be a small leak in the evap system that a qualified shop with a smoke machine should be able to check out, but that code shouldn't be the cause of your no start. When first started it needs the proper fuel pressure and will normally run fine once it's started until the pump degrades to a spot that it just won't run correctly any more. the computer on today's cars can compensate for a lot of things to a certain point till they just won't run anymore.

My check engine light on my 2006 Chevy Equinox keeps coming on. I have replaced the gas cap because the original one wouldn't screw on tight. I also took it to a repair shop and they replaced the evap vent...

I would bring it back to the shop that did the work. If the code is coming out as a problem with the evap system it is not abnormal for the system to take 2 or 3 days for it to read again.

2004 chrysler pacifica check engine light code p0442,0456 where do I start was in shop for a week still not fixed.

The codes are both evap system codes. The only good way to find the leaks is to take it to a shop that has a smoke machine. They will pump smoke into the evap system to find the leak.

Enigne light is on a few days ago i had the message check gas cap and now the light for engine is lit and gas cap has been tightened. Does it need to be reset? Or take to someone help.

It does need reset. Try a local AutoZone or parts store that does free check engine lights. Any repair shop will charge diagnosis.
