2000 Honda Odyssey Q&A

2000 Honda Odyssey Question: Can a disconnected item in the fuel system cause damage to the EVAP Solenoid?

The dealership did a spark plugs replacement, oil change, and state inspection. The engine malfunction light came on immediately afterwards. They found it was a disconnected item in the fuel system and connected it. The malfunction light still came back. Now they are saying that I have the P1457 code and need to replace EVAP Bypass Solenoid Vave and the canister. I am wondering if the damage to the Evap system was due to their mistake of leaving an item in the fuel system disconnected. -

They said that the fuel connector was not connected. They did not give me anything in writing, so it is hard to recall the terms exactly. Thanks a lot for your reply. A quick question-- the state inspection involves looking for Evaporative control system components-- could that have damaged the EVAP system? -

if it was in the back by the evap system, yes. all the work you describe was in the front so I doubt it. call them back and get more exact info. talk to the service manager and have him find out. it sounds like you spent a lot on the work. it is the least they can do. Roy -
