P0455 Solved

For anyone that has the CEL code P0455 (Large fuel vapor leak in the evap system) I fixed mine today since my inspection is up at the end of March. I figured I would post my fix to help out someone else. I've had this problem for several months.

I started with the gas cap since that was the general consensus on here. No dice. Then I replaced the charcoal canister and purge solenoid, still leaking. Then I traced every hose that I could see from the large canister under the bumper cover all the way back to the gas tank. Still could not find a cracked/dry rotted hose

So today I finally broke down and got a smoke test. Turned out to be the steel evap line right above the driver side wheel well. It's down in the crevasse under the hood hinge, where it started to rust through and mud/debris had got in there and the line had snapped right in half. Put six inches of rubber hose on with a couple hose clamps and problem solved. The computer found no faults and inspection was a success.

Hopefully this will help someone in the future

Just fixed it yesterday and filled up the tank, I'll let you know if I get a difference in mileage. One thing that went away was the charcoal canister doesn't tick so loud anymore.

Did you have to remove the fender liner to see the line?

Nope, it's right behind the brake booster. Down in there above the wheel well.

Mine happened after I dropped the tank, totally my fault because the O ring was folded under the fuel pump. But for anybody who dropped their tank and got this, re drop and do it all again and you will most likely fix your problem.

There's also a rubber splice under the washer fluid reservoir will rot and cause a leak. Changed mine out when I replaced the manifold.
