you welcome

1- The FTP (fuel tank Pressure sensor) ,spray electrical contact cleaner in the harness connector, shine a flash light make sure no backed out pins are making poor contact.

2- FTP circuit short to voltage ( check all fuse & do a wiggle test o the wiring harness)

3- PCM circuit to ftp

4- check vacuum hose and do a smoke test ,usually a small leak you can see by eye.

5- sometimes we have to update the pcm with latest software ,(done at dealer if all above are checked and sensor been replaced and vacuum lines are good

Let me know if you need anything else on it ,if you are good , Please Kindly rate me.
