#2353 of 2391 P0442 & P0455 EVAP Ctrl System Leak
Jul 08, 2009 (10:51 pm)
My 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan just failed smog due to the EVAP leaks. Can you tell us what needs to replace? Is it a vacuum hose or is it a major fix.
Thanks for your time.

check your console on the roof. You have an on and off switch that is for turning the controls off to the sliding door as a child proof. I have myself turned this off and forgot I did so. When I took it in to get it checked out the service guy told me to chec k this switch. Hope this helps.

Have the above code on my 2001 Dodge Grande Caravan. Looking it up it says: leak detection pump switch or mechanical fault. What is this? Where is this pump located? Thanks for any help!

I have a 2002 Dodge Caravan which had a code 455 and 442. The following is a description of this van. The problem was caused by a 12 inch hose located under the van on the drivers side close to and in front of the liquid/vapor separator canisters. The 5/8 inch ID hose was connected between the front (engine side) of the LDP vent valve and the leak detection pump. Oil from the engine had leaked onto the end of hose connected to the pump. The plastic clamp was broken and the hose had swollen until it was very loose. Replacing the hose and clamps fixed the problem. The LDP vent valve is connected to the largest liquid/vapor canister by a 2 inch long hose. You may need to buy the hose from the Chrysler since it is a shaped hose. Any broken or missing clamps should be replaced with the band type sold by auto parts stores. Any other hose which is split should be replaced. I found one small L shaped hose with different IDs on each end connected to the small liquid/vapor canister which had a small split which I replaced with a hose I got from Chrysler for $5.

It is raining in my car! I cleaned out the drainage tubes which were totally plugged and thought that would solve the problem. (I live in Portland where it rains constantly). The passenger side drain tube is cracked at the bottom but before I replace that I'd be thrilled to hear some advice. I finally had a dry 3 days and the car seemed fine, so I ran a hose on the windshield, the passenger door, basically all over the front end of the car. Nothing. As soon as it started to rain again, there's now a slow stream of water coming out from underneath the glove box. It smells like water, has no color. It did disappear when I ran the heat (which I haven't done in months), but then slowly trickled again. This can't be normal?! I really want to sell my car but want to identify and fix the problem so I don't pass it off to a buyer (but obviously don't want to break my bank in doing so). Please help!!!

I recently fixed up this van for my handicapped friend. (Auto,since only 1 leg.) While driving the other day, it suddenly lost power to the accelerator. Still running though, for about a mile, and then suddenly had accelerator again. Your help to correct this is appreciated. Need to keep my friend in wheels.

Had the same problem took forever to find where the whinning was coming from. Look under the middle of the car while running and listen for a whine while someone else eccelrates it. There is a plastic 3 ball looking thing that has a vacumm in it that helps with pressure. Mine was shrunken from heat and therefore leaked its called a Vac Harness and it was 8.00 from the dealer. part # was 4431325 hope this helps good luck.

I bought a 1996 grand voyager three years ago........ just yesterday I tried to detach the spare tire from under the car and I can't figure out how to do it, can't find in the manual how take it down, can somebody tell me how? It seems nobody has ever taken that tire off.
