Problem with OBD Code P0455
Hello everybody, especially Nickysixx. I just want to give an update. Back in Sept. I posted a problem with the evap. system on my 2002GT the code from the scanner (P0455) indicated it was a large leak. After a lengthy and thorough inspection, and several conversations with Nickysixx (thanks) I was not able to find the culprit. So, I decided to wait. My tags were up for renewal so I took it to the local Shell Station/Smog Inspection, and for $120 plus parts, the mechanic there found and fixed the problem. The problem was the Vapor Canister Purge Valve which is located behind the pass. side front fender wall. I guess this valve controls the fuel vapors between the engine and the gas tank. Again, I just wanted to post an update and a piece of info. to assist other folks who may experience this problem. This valve runs $67 at Ford's and about 2/3 the price, or around $40 if you go aftermarket. Thanks again, Nickysixx for your help and thanks for this website.
