Received P0455 Evap System Large Leak Detected - 2004 Cavalier

Received P0455 Evap System Large Leak Detected for my 2004 Chevy Cavalier. It is not the gas cap. Where else can I look to fix the problem?

    The Check Engine light is on in my 2004 Chevy Cavalier. After running the diagnostic test on it I received the P0455 code which means: Evaporative emission system leak detected. The reasons for this problem is typically the gas cap. But, there is nothing wrong with the gas cap and just to be sure I bought a new one. The other reason listed is a leak in the evap system. So, where and how do you start looking for that?

Your problem is probably a vacuum hose that goes from the purge valve to the gas tank (crack or broken hose). There should be two of these check both. A broken vacuum line will make the purge valve make a clicking noise that can be mistaken for noisy engine valves.

My engine light was on. Received code P0455. I changed the purge solenoid on my 2008 Cadillac Escalade exactly 1 week ago. The engine light went off and now it's on again exactly 1 week later. I received...


The check engine light went off on it's own ? Before replacing the purge solenoid did you test the evap system by smoke checking ? Would have other code's besides P0455 if purge solenoid was bad. DTC P0455: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Large Leak Detected
• Inspect for a loose, missing, damaged, or incorrect fuel fill cap.
• Inspect for a damaged fuel filler neck seal surface.
• A blockage or restriction in the EVAP purge solenoid valve, purge pipe, EVAP canister, or vapor pipe, can cause this DTC to set.
• The EVAP system can be filled with smoke more quickly and completely by opening the system opposite the end where the smoke is injected. For example, when injecting smoke at the service port remove the fuel fill cap, or temporarily leave the vent open, until smoke is observed, then close the system and continue testing. If using a fuel cap adapter at the filler neck, use the J 41413-VLV at the service port to allow the system to fill faster.
• To help locate intermittent leaks using the J 41413-200 , move all EVAP components while observing smoke with the J 41413-SPT .
• Individual components can be isolated and tested using adapters in the J 41413-300 .
• A condition may exist where a leak in the EVAP system only exists under a vacuum condition. This type of leak may be detected by using the scan tool Purge/Seal function to create a vacuum in the EVAP system and then observe the FTP parameter for vacuum decay.

P0455 and p0442


p0455-- emission control system ( a large leak ) the most common cause is a bad seal on fuel cap, remove and replace cap, if light stats on. replace cap. if not the cap it could be any where in emission system. p0442 is--same as above. Code p0442 indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. To fix this problem, remove and reinstall the gas cap. Clear the codes and drive to see if the codes reappear. If the code appears again replace the gas cap or inspect the system for cuts or holes in the tube or hose. good-day !

Technical Description

Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (no purge flow or large leak)
What does that mean?This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel systemmag-glass_10x10.gif. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

'04 chevy cavalier w/check engine light on, comes up w/ \code P0455. what is my problem?


This means you have a evap leak.
Part of the emmion laws state that fuel vapors can not excape in to the air
This can be caused by
1. your gas cap not on or was not on properly
2. you have a leak in the Evap system.
