P0455 Wont pass emissions

Not sure what to do here my 04 malibu new body style with a 3.5L V 6 keeps getting a P0455 code which is driving me nuts... With the new emission standards in Ontario my car will not pass Etest.... i have done everything i can think of to fix it bought both the vent and the purge solenoids, tried multiple gas caps and still cant fix it....only thing i have yet to do is fog the system (not even sure if possible on newer vehicles.... If there is anyone out there that has any idea of what i could change to make the code go away that would be great..


Thank you signed irritated owner lol

This saturn forum has addressed the P0455 code and included parts of a maintenance manual to help you trouble shoot the problem. Unfortunatuely you have to join the forum to view the manual.

Sounds like there is a leak somewhere in the evap system and sometimes they are a real pain to find.We in northern Ohio have to deal with the emission test also.Here if you have spent a certain amount trying to fix it(I think 300 bucks)you can get a waiver and pass it that way.Another way is the dealer and some shops can do what they call a smoke test and try and find the leak in the system.Good luck to you. I myself have fought with this code on a few friends cars but before we got as far as doing the smoke test other things gave up on the cars and they were junked.

Yes we have in Ontario what is called a conditional pass and it cost $450..we got the car 2 years ago from my wifes brother for $500 so i dont see the point in putting a conditional on it
