Question about 2003 Chrysler Town & Country
P0455....Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (gross leak
the first thin to check is your gas cap
Posted on Nov 14, 2009
Could be the gas cap. Do you fill the tank with the engine running?
Otherwise, check the hoses near the Evap canister. I have 2003 T&C and had the small leak and large leak codes. I looked at the evap cansiter and the hose coming from the fuel tank vapor line had a huge crack in it, to the point it had fallen off the evap caniser. I trimmed the end of the hose and reconnected and voila, no codes.
The evap canister is on the driver's side of the van, underneath, slightly behind the drivers seat.
BTW, to clear the codes without an OBDII reader, remove the negative cable for 5-10 minutes (15 to be safe). The computer resets and clears the codes, except for one that it sets saying loss of power to the memory.

encrypted software ,dealer only----yes i know you are showing a reading but it doesnt mean anything or if it does it shows a different code .so your snap on or mac tools scanner is a waste of time and money.Nearly all new motors from 2005 are using encrypted software to stop general mechanics like me from working
