|P0455 code description

The Engine Control Module (ECM) tests the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) system for a large leak or restrictions to the purge path in the EVAP system. When the enabling criteria has been met, the ECM commands the EVAP vent solenoid valve and purges the solenoid valve ON, allowing vacuum into the EVAP system. The ECM monitors the fuel tank pressure sensor voltage to verify that the system is able to reach a calibrated level of vacuum before a calibrated amount of purge volume has passed through the system. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set when the EVAP system is not able to achieve or maintain a calibrated level of vacuum less than -2.74 kPa (-11 in H20) before a calibrated amount of purge volume has passed through the system.
