Question about Lincoln Navigator
Getting code P0456 - Small EVAP Leak. My truck is sputtering (misfiring) and not accelerating properly. What could be the some likely causes?
The P0456 is not your cause here. If there are no other codes present other than the P0456, try unplugging the mass air flow sensor and see if the sputtering goes away and if so, replace the mass air flow sensor. You could also have a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump (low pressure)

SOURCE: small evap leak
The evap leak is short for EVARORATIVE EMISSIONS SYSTEM, NOT AC EVAPORATOR, AC leaks do not cause the truck to fail emission, most likely the problem is a defective gas cap. Also the code you give (P0244) is a watse gate code, please provide the correct code.

use carb cleaner and waft all vacuum lines and areas near evap can and when engine rpm changes you are close ...:) good luck

open hood and ck for broken vacuum hoses going to the purge valve(2 vacuum ports and a wiring connector)
on the drivers side between airbox and firewall
if good remove driver side rear tire and inspect hoses next to the gas tank and 3rd, the canister is in that wheel well also insp for cracked hoses there also, been working for jeep 12 years i charged people about 1 hour to correct this probem.

Maybe try cleaning, tightening, or replacing the gas cap first?
P0456 Article by Dale Toalston ASE Certified Technician
Evaporative Emissions System - Small leak detected
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) at different times performs various tests on the EVAP system. OBD II Enhanced EVAP systems are in place to keep fuel tank vapors from venting into the atmosphere, and instead purges them into the engine to be burned. Regular pressure tests are conducted by the PCM to monitor the sealed system for leaks. The PCM monitors the EVAP system pressure by watching the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor. When the sensor indicates a small leak in the EVAP system, this code is set.
There will likely be no noticeable symptoms other than the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL). This is because the EVAP system is a closed system and only controls fuel tank vapors, not engine management.
Usually this P0456 code is caused by an incorrect or faulty gas cap. Filling the fuel tank with the engine running could conceivable cause this code as well or if the cap wasn't properly tightened. Any of the following could also be the cause: - A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses - A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve - The EVAP Canister may be leaking Possible Solutions:
- A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
- A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
- The EVAP Canister may be leaking
First, using a scan tool activate the vent solenoid, sealing the system. Then monitor the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor. If the system is sealing properly, the number will stay consistent. If is isn't, the pressure sensor will show that as well. If the system slowly leaks, use a smoke machine and watch for smoke exiting the system at any EVAP component. Any where there is smoke exiting the system, that is the faulty component. Do not pressurize the EVAP system with air pressure. Doing so can damage the purge and vent solenoids in the system.
