Posted about my sisters 99 civic EX (canadian) non-vtec. Her timing belt
broke, and we went through the whole process of repairing the damage caused
by that. Replaced all valves on cylinder 3.
The car has been running well for the past 3 weeks, and suddenly the CEL came
on. I have a code reader, it said P1457, Evaporative Emission Control System
Leak Detected (EVAP Control Canister Area)
So the first thing I said was to ensure the fuel cap was fastened properly.
It came back on a couple days later, same code. I have now suggested
replacing the fuel cap with a Honda OEM replacement.
My question: Bro-in-law mentioned the light came on upon hard acceleration
at high rpm. Any other common problems that could be causing this code to be
Terry in Winnipeg.
