Hey, Im back from auto zone and getting the codes, the code on the computer is P1457
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Thank you for getting that code for me. This is usually caused by a Evaporative Canister Vent Shut Valve. Was this replaced?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We ordered one to replace but it won't get here until tomorrow, will the "check engine" light go off if we replace it and it was the problem??
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Eventually, yes, the check engine light will go off by itself if that is the problem. This is the most common cause for this code. However, any leaking component in the EVAP system can cause this code. Here is the definition for this code.

P1457 EVAP System Leak Detected (Canister Area)

Possible Causes

EVAP two-way valve or ORVR vent shut valve is damaged

EVAP canister purge line is loose, damaged or blocked

EVAP canister is leaking, damaged or full of water

EVAP fuel tank vapor control valve has failed

PCM has failed

We changed the evap two way valve, reset the light yesterday and the check engine light came on today again, any input on next step??
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Your next step is to get the evap system smoked checked for leaks with a smoke machine.

Where do they do the smoke check??
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Where do they do the smoke check at???
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

They can go through the fuel filler neck or there is a evap smoke port under the hood that can be used to smoke check the evap system.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Do the autoparts store sells canisters of smoke to inject on the system??
Mechanic for Honda: Amedee, Former ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Auto parts stores might have to smoke machine. If not I'm sure you can get it on line like Amazon.com

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
