48 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)

Position the ignition switch and the A/C system in the off position. Install a fuel pressure gauge to the vehicles fuel rail service valve. Confirm that no leaks are present, and place the ignition switch in the run position and utilize a scan tool to energize the fuel pump. This will bring the system to a stabilized fuel pressure that can be visually verified on the gauge.

Black smoke is raw fuel, it's not being ignited, pull the spark plugs and inspect, if any black tiped electrodes that cylinder isn't firing,(spark plug, spark plug wire, coil, ignition modular not working properly, while the plugs are out perform a compression test, you need 80 psi in each cylinder to fire the fuel

- Fuel injectors.
- Element air cleaner.
- Mass air flow sensor.

- Contaminated fuel.

Chrysler - Dodge neon 1996 has fuel and maybe sensor issues


Does the light work when you first turn the key? Does it come on? Check your ignition wires for arching also make sure you don't have a pool of oil in the spark plug tubes.

I've changed the oxygen sensor and the O2 sensor and new plugs on my 97 dondge 3.9 van and it still blowen black smoke (rich) seems to run real good on top end but theres is a flat spot where theres no...


Black smoke indicates no air, check your air filter, if you have done that and it is ok, check the PCV valve. Thats about all that I can suggest. Hope that helps.

There is a black smoke coming of the exaust? and it is shaking too much when it is on


a bad fuel pressure regulator causes this. black soot on plugs, black smoke from tailpipe, running rough, stalling. first check plugs and wires.

I have a 1988 Dodge Ram 50 with a 2.6 engine and it boggs down and puts out black smoke at the exhaust pipe


mcdevito75 here, The black smoke is gas, have your local shop check out the fuel system, Sensors, Fuel Pressure, fuel injectors all these can cause your problem, look for fuel system deals at various shops to save money, Sears, Pepboys etc.

Dodge neon code p0456


What does that mean? 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.
FB.init("dd7d9e9681341cde77587bc6a2029f6f"); OBD-Codes.com on Facebook Potential Symptoms 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.
Causes Usually this P0456 code is caused by an incorrect or faulty gas cap. Filling the fuel tank2_bing.gif 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 fuel2_bing.gif tank hoses
  • A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
  • The EVAP Canister may be leaking
Possible Solutions 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.
