Code 457 is for a leak found in the evap system which vents the gas tank to the vapor canister. The gas cap could be loose, or damaged. Or there could be a leak somewhere in the tank vent or lines.

I would start by stripping all four brakes & cleaning up
all rust & then do what was necessary to put back together
Machine Rotors if necessary,new pads if needed & lube things

No other expert would start there- only me-
that is if they haven't been apart in a year

Now the brakes are under control & would on your 12 year
old car remove the master cyl & clean out the moisture & then
bleed all four corners

For me that would be the end & adjust Parking Brake.

You can not make the pedal physically come up, no matter
what you do.

New pads push the caliper pistons in more & you get a
quicker brake feel -but not shorter pedal stroke

Sometimes throttling will knock out debris that might be causing this. Give it some gas in park.

Could also be the air filter, EGR or mass airflow sensor.

I have a 96 Towncar, which had a P0125 trouble code set. I changed the thermostat and cleared the code - only to have it reset in a couple minutes after starting. The car was hard starting, and died several times before it actually ran. I did also noticed that while running the idle speed had risen to over 950 RPM.

I changed the Temperature sending unit located next to the thermostat housing, and again cleared the code. After starting the car again it performed excellently and did not reset the P0125 trouble code.

Well, Id reccommend checking your battery, alternator, fuel filter, and if that looks all good, you should try replacing your spark plugs. If you think its strictly a gas problem you could try putting some addatives in your fuel. Theres this stuff called Heet. used to remove water or buildup in your fuel. If your alternator is going downhill, I've had a similar problem. Hope this helps. It probably just needs a little tlc tuneup

If you can open it from the inside, someone will need to take the door panel off and check the linkage to the door latch.
