hey guys, i recently pulled this code P0455

i did a search and no one seemed to have ever had this error since i couldnt find anything through the search...well except for 1 post in the older forum...something about a leak in the EVAP system

im wondering if anyone has ever come across this and fixed it..but never posted it...i want to give this a shot before i take it in to be fixed

any help would be greatly appreciated...

OK, from the code:P0455
EVAP Emission Contr.Sys.(Gross Leak) Leak Detected

First check to make sure the gas cap is on tight.
Next, look at the evaporation canister. Are the vacuum lines all good? They can be cracked under the cloth covering where you can not see the damage.

Can you please direct me where the evaporation canister located?
