1457 Code

by John Leite
(Cumberland, RI)

I have a 1999 Honda Accord. The check engine light recently came on and my mechanic stated it was the 1457 EVAP code. He reset it and said wait to see if it comes back on . Well, strangely it come back on but then goes back off on its own. It usually comes on when I have about a 1/4 of a tank of gas and stays on after the tank is filled. When the tank is about 3/4 full it goes off. My mechanic stated that the 1457 is a tough code to crack as it could be any number of parts. He was also surprised to hear that the light goes off and on. Has anyone had this happen to them?

P1457 Code Fix
by: Eddie Carrara

Hi John,
The p1456, and p1457 codes are very common, and the most common repair for it is not difficult. I recommend starting with replacing the canister vent shut valve and then drive it for 3 driving cycles (completely hot to completely cold) I made a video when I changed my daughters canister vent shut valve in her 1999 Honda Accord V6, here is the link to my YouTube video, let me know if this helps, you can comment here or on YouTube, thanks John.
