P0455 Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (gross leak)
P0455 Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (gross leak)... what is this related to? just got this on cel tonight. should i be worried. just had my a/c fixed 3 days ago could this be related?:confused:

no not related. Its an emissions code. I would check your gas cap. Otherwise you will have to have it smoke tested to find the leak.

Do we have any idea were to start for checks? What parts is it directly related to?

Check your EVAP purge value. It could be sticking. I was getting this code. Just lightly tap it with a screw drive handle....I have not had a problem since and that was a little over a year ago. Also you may have a leak in the hoses to the valve.

could it be directly related to the pcv #6 kit i just changed that but the hose going to the pcv valve into the valve cover is falling apart and i checked it the other day and it had fallen off?
