SOURCE: what P0453-Evaporative Emission control System Pressure Sensor h

P0453 is for the fuel tank pressure sensor. This code means that the voltage on the sensor was greater than 4.5V during key on engine off or during any engine operating mode.
Normal voltage from this sensor with no vacuum or pressure on the system should be 2.37 to 2.97V.
PCM sends a reference voltage of 5V to the sensor and tells if there is pressure or vacuum in the fuel tank by the voltage that returns from the sensor.

Possible causes are:

  • FTP circuit open
  • VREF shorted to VPWR
  • Damaged PCM
  • FTP circuit shorted to VREF or VPWR
  • SIG RTN circuit open
  • Damaged FTP sensor

  • Usually it is a loose connector at the sensor or a bad sensor.
    It mounts on top of the fuel tank,has a 3 wire connector. To replace it you have to push down on it and twist,if I remember right CC.

    SOURCE: What is EVAPORATIVE EMISSION...Purge Flow?? Mitsubishi Mirage?

    This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. Try changing the gas cap first then check the rubber hoses that are visble on top of the engine. Vote "Yes" for me!

    SOURCE: 1996 saab 900s p0441 evaporative

    This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. 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.

    EVAP emission canister purge is contolled by a valve which allows engine vacuum to pull stored fuel vapors from fuel tank into the engine to be burned, rather than be vented to atmosphere. A vacuum switch is used to detect when flow exists. If the PCM commands purge and sees that the switch is closed (indicating no detected purge flow) P0441 is set.

    Causes: A code P0441 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
    * Bad vacuum switch
    * Broken or damaged EVAP line or canister
    * Open in PCM purge command circuit
    * Open or short in Voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
    * Faulty purge solenoid
    * Restriction in EVAP solenoid, line or canister
    * Corrosion or resistance in purge connector
    * Bad PCM

    Possible Solutions: With a P0441 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
    * Common Chrysler fix - Replace Leak Detection Pump / LDP
    * Repair damaged EVAP lines or canister
    * Repair open or short in voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
    * Repair open in PCM purge command circuit
    * Replace purge Solenoid
    * Replace vacuum switch
    * Repair restriction in Evap line or canister or soleniod
    * Repair resistance in purge connector
    * Replace PCM

    P0441 1998 Toyota Camry - Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow

    When is the code detected? Pressure in charcoal canister and fuel tank does not drop during purge control (2 trip detection logic).

    Possible symptoms: - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    - Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors

    P0441 1998 Toyota Camry Description: The Engine Control Module (ECM) tests the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) system for the following conditions:
    - Large and small leaks

    - Excess vacuum

    - Purge flow during non-commanded conditions

    - Fuel Level and Fuel Pressure sensor faults

    - EVAP Purge and Vent Valve faults

    The ECM monitors the Fuel Tank Pressure sensor in order to determine the level of vacuum/pressure in the EVAP system. The ECM commands both the EVAP Purge Solenoid and the EVAP Vent Valve ON when the conditions are met in order to apply an engine vacuum to the EVAP system. The ECM commands the EVAP Purge Solenoid OFF once the system has reached a predetermined level of vacuum. This test verifies if a vacuum can be achieved in the EVAP system. Failure to develop a vacuum may be caused by a large leak or a restriction.

    Possible causes - Missing Fuel cap
    - Incorrect fuel filler cap used
    - Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
    - Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
    - Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

    What code is po443


    ossible causes
    - Faulty Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid Control
    - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid Control harness is open or shorted
    - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid Control circuit poor electrical connection
    help.jpg What does this mean?
    When is the code detected?
    An improper voltage signal is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM) through the valve.
    Possible symptoms
    - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    P0443 Description
    The Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) canister purge volume control solenoid valve uses a ON/OFF duty to control the flow rate of fuel vapor from the EVAP canister. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is moved by ON/OFF pulses from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The longer the ON pulse, the greater the amount of fuel vapor that will flow through the valve.

    What is code po497


    P0497 = evaporative emission system low purge flowcel if you want to try and fix this problem, buy a new genuine Honda gas cap and see if the light turns back on. if that doesnt work, the job can get very expensive to diagnose and fix. The next thing a dealer would do is run an evaporative function test (~$100) to see what is leaking.

    What does po440 on a 2003 saturn vue mean with a service engine soon light on


    That is a problem in the evaporative emission control system.
    Could be anything causing it
    Clogged filter in the charcoal canister
    A leak in one of the vacuum lines
    The purge valve not working,,,etc.
    The best thing is to take it and have it checked out, they might have to do a smoke test to find the problem.
    All they do is inject smoke into the system, if there is a leak the smoke will come out of it. All it takes is a pin hole in these emission systems to screw it all up.

    I checked the codes and one comes up its po446. i dont under stand what it mean so i cant fix it to get the light to go out.


    P0446 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit.
    The following are descriptions of all Evaporative possible codes:

    P0441 Evaporative Emission System Incorrect Purge Flow
    P0442 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)
    P0443 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit
    P0444 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Open
    P0445 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Shorted
    P0446 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit
    P0447 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit Open
    P0448 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit Shorted
    P0449 Evaporative Emission System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit
    P0450 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch
    P0451 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch Range/Performance
    P0452 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch Low
    P0453 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch High
    P0454 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch Intermittent
    P0455 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (large leak)
    P0456 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (very small leak)
    P0457 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (fuel cap loose/off)
    P0458 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Low
    P0459 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit High
    ---
    At least the cap isn't loose for the gas tank.

    I would clear the code with an OBD-II Scanner 'erase code' button, and see how long it takes for it to come back.
