2006 Cadillac escalade Codes coming up are: P0446 EVAP Vent Solenoid Valve Control System P0452 Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor Circuit Low Voltage P0455 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Leak Detected The fuel pump was replaced about 2 months ago. The 'tighten gas cap' signal comes on periodically. What am I looking at for repairs? Problems? Don't want to get taken advantage of at the garage. Thanks!


Most places charge an hour's labor for the diagnosis at whatever the labor rate may be. The cost will be contingent upon the actual problem and what it takes to fix it (electrical issues, parts required...) the repair could range from 300.00 to 600. ... Cars & Trucks

I have jeep grand Cherokee 2000 4.0 liter, I had the fuel pump changed today now that i filled my tank i noticed a huge leak from the tank and i called the mechanic he said it is the return valve leak and it should stop after i drive it for a while i drove 24 hwy miles and now it is still leaking i was wondering if there is any truth in what he said (he also said that there is valve with a ball that should get back and seal it or something)? or did he want me to leave? Please and thank you


This is my personal opinion: Any shop or technician that would even dream of releasing a vehicle with a gasoline leak of the size you describe should NEVER be permitted to ever again work on a vehicle of any type. Regardless of the cause (I can't see ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

2000 Ford Taurus SES, 3.0L. Have coolant leak around the reservoir tank. Thought tank might cracked. Removed, taped off openings and filled with water. No leak (high pressure leak?). Suspect upper hose. How do I get full access to hose to check it or replace it? Thanks!

No pressure on brake peddel when car is running oil level good found no leaks seems ABS valve sending oil back to tank and not building pressure how can I check pressure transducer on the tank or soleniod on the ABS block


Most likely the master cylinder is bad. Even if you had a problem with the ABS system you would still have normal old school capabilities with the brakes. All the ABS does is helps prevent skidding out and spinning. You can actually remove the ABS c ... 1996 Ford Explorer

Coolant leak I've recently had my alternator, belts, and water hose replaced related to two previous coolant leaks. A pressure test was performed to locate the reason for the leak. Now only 2 months later it is still leaking. After getting down and looking at the leak it seems to be coming from the drainage plug(?) right near the front underside of the vehicle. After draining all the coolant out and checking the struts on the plug it seemed to be fine. Then after making sure it was re-screwed ba


I don't know what you mean by struts on the plug. If this is the plug on the lower radiator reservoir the cheap fix is to silicone a new plug and reinstall it. Don't over tighten. If the silicone doesn't work you may have to ... 1996 Nissan Sentra

I try to start my 1995 Cutlass Ciera and It won't start and as soon as I let off the key fuel leaks from between the tank and the drivers side rear tire. Is the fuel filter clogged and pressure is pushing the fuel out some relief valve or is there a line leak of some kind?

I am loosing about 1 gal of water per 200 miles without stop leak. With stop leak it goes to about 1 qt. I have had the head gaskets changed. the water pump changed. Somebody told me is was the heater core so I disconnected it for a week with no change. I appears I am getting back pressure through the radiator overflow tank which may pushing the water out when I am driving. There is never any water (except for the A/C drain. All hoses have been changed. Note I also put a new radiator reservoir


Have you replaced the radiator cap? If so, you have a bad gasket, either an intake or head gasket that under HOT pressure, is causing coolant to leak in to the combustion chamber while driving. ... 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche

I have a 98 Buick Century thats starting to get up there in the mileage. (165k miles). Recently, I changed jobs and had to run the fuel tank under 1/4 full for quite a while, which I know isn't good for the pump. Anyway, the car stalled before i thought i should be out of gas, so I pushed it to the station and threw in enough for a half tank. Tried to crank it, and now it just turns over without starting.

My problem is that when I start my van cold it works fine. As I run errands and stop for 15 - 30 minutes, when I start the van it runs very rough. If I pump the gas and get moving it smooths out and runs fine. I have been told that the check valve in the fuel pump is leaking causing fuel to leak back into the tank. If that were the case wouldn't it start rough all the time?


No its lossing its prime after its first prime the diagham is bad in the check value. ... Dodge Grand Caravan
