PO455 Code

PO455 Code

Postby Mudduck [OP] » Jun 12 2013, 9:54pm

Engine light came on Monday and finally got a code reader on it. PO455 - Evap Purge Solenoid - Large Leak. It's in the top front, behind the throttle body. Super easy and cheap. I'll take some pictures and do a "How To".

Well here's the "How To". Make sure your GAS CAP is on!!! :roll: I went to put gas in last night, and the cap is just hanging there and the fill tube is GONE!! The two screws that mount the tube had fallin' out!! WTF??? Anyway, I put everything back and the CEL is off. All is well on the home front.

yeah, that trouble code is usually for the gas cap, or the valve in the evap canister gets stuck open and needs to be replaced....

good to hear it was the cheaper option for you! haha....
