The next step is to get a smoke check which usually tells you where the leak is. Good luck!

SOURCE: trouble code po456 evap small leak ? could it be the gas cap ?

Can't say 100% obviously, but quite often that is the cure, but try to take some time to make sure all your hoses , in the system are in good shape & tight.

The leak in your evap system is very small at .020. It is more than likely a small split in a hose somewhere. The cap is probably ok, we rarely find a bad one. If it is a small split in a hose it will only get larger over time. Here is the factory info on the code. We have found that alot of these leaks are from a small hose on the evap canister under the vehicle, but with out looking at your vehicle it is hard to say. If the leak goes away or is no longer large enough to be detected, your light will go out after a few days. These leaks are emmissions related and will not effect the integrity of the vehicle. I would have it checked and corrected if the light stays on at your convienience.

Symptom List:
P0442-EVAP LEAK MONITOR MEDIUM (0.040) LEAK DETECTED
P0455-EVAP LEAK MONITOR LARGE LEAK DETECTED
P0456-EVAP LEAK MONITOR SMALL (.020) LEAK DETECTED
Test Note: All symptoms listed above are diagnosed using the same tests.
The title for the tests will be P0442-EVAP LEAK MONITOR
MEDIUM (0.040) LEAK DETECTED.
When Monitored and Set Condition:
P0442-EVAP LEAK MONITOR MEDIUM (0.040) LEAK DETECTED
When Monitored: Immediately after a cold start, with battery/ambient temperature
between 40° F and 90° F and coolant temperature within 10° F of battery/ambient.
Set Condition: If there is a leak larger than 0.0409 and smaller than 0.0809 in the
evaporative system.
P0455-EVAP LEAK MONITOR LARGE LEAK DETECTED
When Monitored: Immediately after a cold start, with battery/ambient temperature
between 40° F and 90° F and coolant temperature within 10° F of battery/ambient.
Set Condition: There is a leak larger than 0.0809 in the evaporative system.
P0456-EVAP LEAK MONITOR SMALL (.020) LEAK DETECTED

between 40° F and 90° F and coolant temperature within 10° F of battery/ambient.

SOURCE: Check Engine Light won't go off

If you have an Advance Auto Parts store where ever you are, they will read the code and tell you exactly what to code is and what it means. Any mechanic who "guesses" isn't a mechanic at all - he's a thief. Emissions leak can be any number of things, but not the gas cap!

I Have A 2011 Dodge Nitro An the check engine light will flash and I will loose power on the highway in certain spots. What is the problem??


Your check engine light flashing means that the on-board computer has detected a problem, as a result there is now a Check Engine Light (CEL) code which you can have retrieved using a code scanner. Many auto parts stores will come out to your car and retrieve the code for you for free. Call around and find a parts store to do this, or obviously any mechanic with an OBD-II scanner can do the same thing. Once you have the exact code we can help more.

GASCAP and engine light


A bad gas cap will cause the light to come on, of so replace the cap. The vent is not working if gas is coming back at you. Replace with new.

What does this code mean p0455


Code 455 is a problem with the EVAP system - a large leak was detected.
The computer vents the gas tank to the vapor canister when the engine is running. It pressure tests the gas tank before and after venting.
It could be a faulty gas cap, or you could have started the vehicle with the cap off, or you could have a leaking hose or gasket.
The emission system may still be under factory warranty.

A loose gas cap will throw a P0456 trouble code so will the gas filler neck.You can take the ground cable off of the battery for 3 minutes to reset the computer but,if that does'nt work you will need a scan tool or a code reader.

I have the P0456 on my dodge caravan sxt 2007 with the keys.


http://www.obd-codes.com/p0456

This is usually caused by a gas cap that was not put on properly after a fill up. If this is the case then simply tighten the gas cap and the check engine light should go out in a few days with regular driving or reset with a code reader. You may have to replace the gas cap if the code remains. be sure to get the correct cap.
