Had a diagnostic done and it read the code p0453 had a new fuel pump so the problem may involve the fuel pump if the evap is in the gas tank so i am trying to find out where the evap sensor is located is it in the fuel tank or is it in the engine somewhere. if its in the fuel tank i am covered for a year and can get it fixed cuz the shop apparently put it in wrong or something but if its in the engine i am screwed but need to know where the sensor is located so i know whether to bother fighting


The code discription is evaporative emission control system pressure sensor high. the sensor is located on the top side of the fuel tank. perhaps they did not connect it properly, kinked a hose or blocked the inlet port. ... Ford Expedition

I have a code p0452 low fuel tank pressure. Is the fuel tank pressure sensor in the tank (fuel pump assembly)? is it changable by itself? Is the sensor bad or is it something else?


Yes the pressure sensor in mounted in a rubber grommet on the top of the fuel tank. it could be the sensor but the only way to know for sure is have the dealer do a evaporative emissions fuel tank pressure test, they have the special tools to do this ... 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada

I put my ear to the gas tank and could hear the fuel pump labour then stop and the van would stall. Fuses are good relay has power. Is the fuel pump or a sensor or something. the pump has always been loud since it was replaced in mexico 2 years ago with a new pump.


Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, a dirty fuel filter will also cause what you have described and a ICM (ignition control module) going bad will also do the same. You can remove your ICM and have it tested free of charge ... 1993 Chevrolet Astro

I have replaced all fuel injectors, the MAP sensor, the MAF sensor, the fuel pressure regulator, and my Buick wants to putter and stall when it comes to an idle. What could be causing this!? I need answers, $500 later and it's still not running right. The fuel pump is working fine, supposably everything is working fine because the car is not spitting out any codes. But there is something wrong because it keeps acting this way. HELP!!

Please and thank you


This is my personal opinion: Any shop or technician that would even dream of releasing a vehicle with a gasoline leak of the size you describe should NEVER be permitted to ever again work on a vehicle of any type. Regardless of the cause (I can't see ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

Trouble codes I have a 2000 2.0L Beetle with 95k miles. The check engine light came on. I have a scan tool and came up with 7 different codes. One shows the Oxygen sensor, correction limit attained. The other six are fuel injector circuit(one for each cylinder), fuel tank vent valve circuit, and EVAP system leak detection pump circuit, and all have "short to ground". The engine seems to run fine. I have checked all of the fuses, relays, grounds, and exposed wiring and so far everything seems nor

Car is using more significantly more fuel lately. new spark plugs cleaned MAF sensor. no obvious fuel leaks. car seems to be underperforming at random times. What's causing the increase in fuel consumption? Fuel pump in fuel tank? Computer? Some sort of sending unit? Car not throwing any codes currently...fyi....


A fuel pump will not increase fuel consumption unless there is a leak,which you say there is none.a change in driving habits can increase it without knowing the habits have changed.some times poor gas quality can cause this or when a fuel company cha ... 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix

Ok i got a 2002 saturn vue..code was saying bank 1 bank 2 running lean..the vue runs perfect ,sometime at park it would idle hi.anyways i have replaced the mass air flow unit..turn off light,comes back on same code.then they say the sensors on the manifolds..i changed them both upper and lower..turn off light same problem..bank 1 bank 2 running lean...it runs fine...read it could be the fuel pressure regualtor...ok trying to find location,i heard the gas tank on fuel pump,i heard inside the fuel

I am getting a P0443 code on my 2002 Jaguar Vanden Plas. Simultaneously, when I try to fuel the tank, the pump keeps shutting off like the tank was full but there is only about 1/3 of a tank of gas in the car. P0443 indicates "Evaporative Emission System Control Valve Circuit". The problem started right after I replaced the brakes and the air filter. Could I have bumped something or is it likely unrelated to me messing with the car?

I drive a 2002 Chevrolet I can not start my S-10. I eliminated some of the problems:battery is fine, Jan 2008. Cleaned battery posts; sprayed starter fluid in fuel injection bowel; started and suddenly stopped. Tried twice same result. So I have spark and air, but I don't smell gasoline. Next, I will replace fuel filter driver's side under chassis. Could it be an electrical sensor problem. Lastly the fuel pump in gas tank. I hope not. I cq

Car war hesitating and missfiring so i replaced the fuel pump because the code reader said lean fuel and i researched to see what could it be and it revealed it could bethe fuel pump or the mass air flow sensor.

My girlfriends 99 ford escort has been running for a few months with the P0171 code on. I replaced the air and fuel filters and sprayed down the MAF sensor but it still wont idle at all. Next on my list is to replace the MAF sensor but I was wondering if since she has been driving it for so long like this will it have to be timed? Also ive heard it could be a vacuum line leak? Im not familiar with anything like that so ANY help is appreciated


Yes, a vacuum leak is the likely cause. Check all hoses attached to the intake manifold for leaks. If good, spray carb cleaner or ether on the intake manifold gaskets while the car is running. If the engine revs, you have a leak where you sprayed ... 2001 Ford Escort ZX2

The 'tighten gas cap' signal comes on periodically. What am I looking at for repairs? Problems? Don't want to get taken advantage of at the garage. Thanks!

My gas needle is dropping to empty even though I have gas. I took it to Autozone because the check engine light has been coming on and it is reading " fuel tank pressure sensor" code. Could this be the problem or could it be something else?


Hmm. Yes, not the sensor usually. Could be the fuel sender. The computer sees an issue. Have you ever changed the fuel pump module? Do you ever run your gas tank very low? May be time for a new fuel pump module. ... 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass

1994 Chevy Blazer problems. Car starts and runs for a bit. Dies later and won't restart. Next day it will start and dies later. Have changed EGR, O2 Sensor, Fuel Pump three times, fuel filter. No luck. Funny thing happens whae it dies though, the electrical system goes down. Gauges and dash go blank and no power. Could this be a computer problem. Codes say nothing wrong. ECM?? Need help.


Have you checked the battery after it died. I would check and see if the alternator is putting anything out. If its not, then i would look into the pink and brown ignition wire that runs the alternator and gauges and such. If any problems with this w ... 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
