Default Code P0455 solved!


I found a cracked hose running from the purge solenoid. It was short molded hose that had split. I went to NAPA with it and molded my own. I changed the solenoid as a precaution. Cleared code with the scanner.

How about a pic of the hose so we can see what you replaced?

Whoops! I did not even think about it.
Here they are I hope. In my album.




The first is the cracked elbow. Then second is the repair.

Thanks, I was like great thats a dealer part then I thought about it. Its just a vacuum line. So far the code has not come back. The purge solenoid I bought from NAPA says Delphi on it just like the old one.
Part number 2-28245 plus I had a 20% off coupon.

Nice catch Kelly, and thanks for the pics. I am sure they will be of assistance to other members with similar issues.
