I bought the car refurbished so no warranty... someone before me totaled it
with only 699 miles on it. It is perfectly restored now...new car for less
than half the price!...my brother who lives back home where I got it reset
it..but it still comes back with the 1451 code...I had to leave Shreveport
to come back to Norfolk where I live now...so I wasnt able to let him figure
it out I appreciate any time anyone could take to help me figure it out
Check it over real well for loose hoses, under hood near gas tank ect. Just
out of curiousity, why cant you take it to a dealer? Just drive it in and
tell them to fix it. How can they tell if it was wrecked or not? Why do they
care? They get paid to by the manufacture to fix it anyway. That evap thing
is an emissions problem, I bet they could get into trouble refusing to fix
an emissions problem in this country. There are lots of vehicles that have
had major damage that weren't totaled that get fixed under warranty......Who
told you it wasn't covered? I would check into that very deeply, you may
need that warranty. I would drive it to a Ford or Lincoln dealer in you area
first, tell them to fix it, and see what happens. Dont say anything about a
wreck....If they refuse it, find out why. If they dont, take it there from
now on....Know what I mean?

P1451 - EVAP Control System Canister Vent Solenoid Circuit Malfunction
Monitors the canister vent (CV) solenoid circuit for an electrical failure. The
test fails when the signal moves outside the minimum or maximum allowable
calibrated parameters for a specified canister vent duty cycle by PCM command.
VPWR circuit open
CV solenoid circuit shorted to PWR GND or CHASSIS GND
Damaged CV solenoid
CV solenoid circuit open
CV solenoid circuit shorted to VPWR
To verify normal function, monitor the EVAP canister vent solenoid signal PID
EVAPCV and the signal voltage (PCM control side). With the valve open, EVAPCV
will indicate 0 percent duty cycle and the voltage approximately equal to
battery voltage. When the valve is commanded fully closed, EVAPCV will indicate
100% duty cycle and a voltage drop of 4 volts minimum is normal. Output test
mode may be used to switch output ON/OFF to verify function.
