hey, I have a 2002 f150. I have been getting this code for months now, and I cannot make it go away... the wire coming off the purge solenoid at the canister has already been fixed before and it still appears to be in perfect shape, I cant find any other cracks of wear marks or anything in the wiring... I just changed the solenoid, and it still did not fix it. im not too sure what else it could be, any ideas?... I need an etest by Friday or my truck will be off the road and I really don't want that. any help would be great! thanks
The code is for the Vent function not the Purge if that helps.
Be awhere the fuel system testing can take quite some time to complete after repairs are made.
If your inspection allows the Evap system to be ignored for the purposes of passing inspection, I would clear all codes and let the system retest.
They will see it's Evap and might let it pass otherwise.
Can someone enlighten me as to the location of the canister and solenoid? Getting the P1451 all the time and when engine is under load for a minute vacuum is lost causing fan to blow at defrost only. It's a 1998 4.6L.
Looked over the wiring to the vent solenoid today and found no bad spots. Unplugged the solenoid and checked voltage at the plug, 0 with key off and 5.4/5.5 key on. Maybe the solenoid itself has gone south?
Just a question here, would the P1451 code have any connection with the vacuum loss under load? Incorrect solenoid operation causing vacuum loss... I've been going over the truck and found a sizable leak so I'm thinking that repaired the switching to defrost but I haven't actually tried it. Any thoughts?
