1997 mercury mountaineer code p1450


Hi there:
The first thing that I suggest could be replace the gas cap; also check a possible defective EVAP (Evaporative Emission Canister Vent solenoid). HERE the instructions.


DTC P1450 - Unable to Bleed Up Fuel Tank Vacuum
Monitors the fuel vapor vacuum and pressure in the fuel tank. The system failure occurs when the EVAP running loss monitor detects excessive fuel tank vacuum with the engine running (but not at idle).



Keep in mind that, if problem persists you will need a smoke machine to properly diagnose.


Hope this helps.

Engine light code p0455 chev monte carlo


Hello,The problem is that the EVAP system is not able to achieve or maintain vacuum during the diagnostic testThe 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 the test 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, the PCM will set the code you now have.So, you either have a stuck open purge valve, a stuck open vent valve, a false reading fuel tank pressure sensor, or a cracked/broken EVAP line.

Emission control malfuction p0440


Easier said then done without professional tools

However, I'll start you will some theory, then the shop manual procedures followed by some "common" problems

Theory:
Evaporative leak detection strategy is based on applying vacuum to EVAP system and monitoring vacuum decay. Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors vacuum level by means of fuel tank vacuum sensor input. At a predetermined time, EVAP purge solenoid and EVAP vent solenoid are turned on. This allows engine vacuum to draw a small vacuum on entire EVAP system. Whenever a sufficient vacuum level cannot be achieved, a large leak or faulty EVAP purge solenoid is indicated.

Conditions for setting this DTC are as follows:
No TP sensor, ODM, IAT sensor, or MAP sensor DTCs present.
Start-up ECT 40-86°F (4-30°C).
Start-up ECT not greater than 14°F (8°C) greater than start-up IAT.
Start-up IAT not greater than 4°F (2°C) of start-up ECT.
Fuel tank level is 15-85 percent.
BARO is greater than 75 kPa.
Vehicle has been driven at least 11 miles.
EVAP system is unable to achieve or maintain vacuum during diagnostic test.

Diagnostic Procedures
1.) Perform On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) system check.
After performing OBD system check, go to next step.

2.) Check if DTC P1665 or P1676 is also set. If any of DTCs is present, diagnose affected DTCs. If DTCs are not present, go to next step.

3.) Turn ignition off. Remove fuel filler cap. Turn ignition on. Using scan tool, observe fuel tank pressure. If fuel tank pressure is zero in. H2O, go to next step. If fuel tank pressure in not zero in. H2O, diagnose evaporative system.

4.) Replace fuel filler cap. Using scan tool, capture FAILURE RECORD data for DTC P0440 and clear DTC. Command EVAP vent solenoid on. Connect EVAP Pressure/Purge Diagnostic Station (J-41413) to EVAP service port. Pressurize EVAP system using diagnostic station. Monitor pressure on EVAP pressure gauge on diagnostic station. If pressure is 5 in. H2O, go to next step. If pressure is not 5 in. H2O, go to step 6.

5.) Maintain EVAP pressure at 5 in. H2O. Observe fuel tank pressure on scan tool. If fuel tank pressure reading on scan tool is 5 in. H2O, go to step 8. If reading is not 5 in. H2O, go to next step.

6.) Disconnect fuel tank vapor line and EVAP purge line from EVAP canister. Block canister fitting for fuel tank pressure line. Connect a hand-held vacuum pump to canister fitting for EVAP purge line. Ensure that EVAP vent solenoid is still commanded on. Apply vacuum to EVAP canister. If vacuum can be maintained at 5 in. Hg, go to step 11. If vacuum cannot be maintained at 5 in. Hg, go to step 10.

7.) Check for restriction in fuel tank vapor line or EVAP purge line. Repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 16. If restriction is not found, diagnose EVAP system.

8.) Disconnect vacuum source line at EVAP purge solenoid and plug vacuum source fitting on solenoid. Using scan tool's output tests function, select and activate SYSTEM PERF. Pressurize EVAP system to 5 in H2O. Observe EVAP pressure gauge on diagnostic station while removing plug from EVAP purge solenoid vacuum source fitting. If EVAP pressure decreases to zero in. H2O within 15 seconds while system performance is activated, go to next step. If EVAP pressure does not decrease to zero in. H2O within 15 seconds, go to step 13.

9.) Install vacuum gauge on EVAP diagnostic station to vacuum source line. Start and operate engine to greater than 2000 RPM. Observe source vacuum level. If vacuum level is greater than -15 in. Hg, If vacuum level is not greater than -15 in. Hg, go to step 14.

10.) Check for disconnected or damaged vent hose. Check for damaged EVAP canister. Repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 16. If no problems are found, go to next step.

11.) Check for faulty or missing fuel filler cap. Check for disconnected or leaking fuel tank vapor line. Check for disconnected or damaged EVAP purge line. If problem is found, repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 16. If no problems are found, go to next step.

12.) Using scan tool, command EVAP vent solenoid on. Continuously attempt to pressurize the EVAP system by leaving the EVAP diagnostic station control knob in the pressurized position. Using the Ultrasonic Leak Detector (J-41416), locate and repair leak in EVAP system. After repairs, go to step 16.

13.) Replace EVAP purge solenoid. After replacing solenoid, go to step 16.

14.) Check for carbon release into the EVAP system. Repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 16.

15.) Replace EVAP vent solenoid. After replacing solenoid, go to next step.

15.) Turn ignition on. Using scan tool, command EVAP vent solenoid on. Using EVAP diagnostic station, pressurize EVAP system to 15 in. H2O. Move rotary switch in diagnostic station to HOLD and observe EVAP pressure gauge. If EVAP pressure decreases to less than 10 in. Hg within 2 minutes, repeat step 3. If EVAP pressure does not decrease, system is okay.

Diagnostic Aids
Check for the following:
Cracked or punctured EVAP canister.
Damaged or disconnected source vacuum line, EVAP purge line, vent hose, for fuel tank vapor line.
Poor connection at PCM.
Inspect harness connectors for backed-out terminals, improper mating, broken lock, damaged terminals, or poor wire connection.
Check for intermittent in circuit.
Check for kinked, pinched or plugged vacuum lines to EVAP purge or fuel tank vapor line. Also check for restrictions.
Faulty or damaged evaporative canister.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON ALL THE TIME I used scan tool got fault code PO455


This might help you to better understand the EVAP system and help diagnosing the code that was set. Basically there is a leak and you need to find it. Could be very hard to find without a smoke machine. I would take it into a shop to have it tested with a smoke machine and go from there. Some people might say to just replace the gas cap, but if that's not what it is, there is $20-30 wasted, when it could have been put towards an actual diagnoses that will actually help you to fix the problem DTC P0455 System Description
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. Hope i didn't confuse you.

Steps on changing a a/c on a 1998 dodge dakota sport 3.9


what are you changing? compressor/evaporator/condensor? let me know? But heres a quick guide for any of the components.......if refrigerant exists, the by law it has to be evacuated with a recovery machine, if refrigerant is gone then ensure that no pressure is in system. Then remove the component, replace and then using a vacuum pump....(specialized peice of equipement) vacuum the system down and ensure no leaks. Then weigh in a refrigerent charge accordinf to spec sheet, The your done

Question regarding a honda odyssey 1999 check engine light codes.


Ramon
P0420 relates to the catalytic converter. The computer sees little or no improvement in the exhaust before and after going through the converter. Either your oxygen sensors need replacement (3 total) or you need a new catalytic converter.
What is the mileage on the vehicle? Does it run well? Oxygen sensors generally start to fail after 70,000 miles. Catalytic converters usually fail because the engine is runnig rich and the owner ignores that fault for months. This causes the catalytic converter to overheat and fail.

P1456 relates to the evaporative emission system. This system holds the gas fumes in the system so they are not vented to the atmosphere. The most common cause of this code being set is failing to properly tighten the gas cap after refueling. Take the cap off and clean the sealing O-ring. Put it back on and tighten till it clicks 3 times. Make sure you have the correct gray colored gas cap. Clear the code and see if it resets within a few days. If it does, try replacing the gas cap.
