The idle will occasionally stutter at stop signs, but it's nothing like it used to be. Who knows,,,but changing to non-ethanol gas seems to improve drive-ability during this particular EVAP problem.


If I understand the system correctly a stuck open purge solenoid could cause a vacuum leak. Here is a link for the TSB that covers the P0455 code.

Having a troubleshooting guide, makes fixing stuff like this way easier. lol
