Customer Question

I have a ford edge 2012. the engine light came on . The code I am getting is P0456. Evap leak - small leak. Any ideas? want to fix my self if easy.
JA: How many miles are on the car? Have any warning codes popped up?

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

Most common for the P0456 is the canister purge valve sticking open, which can also be your stalling concern if it sticks open far enough. Second most common is the filler neck not sealing, a smoke machine would be needed to verify that.

Is there a reason you keep viewing my replies without rating or responding?

Hello again,

I was reviewing some of my older questions and noticed I was never compensated for this question because it was not rated. If it was your intention to not rate me and use my services free of charge then I will accept that as a free service I provided and move on.

Thanks,

Kenny Z
