Hey all, newb here. My wife has always had Hondas and we have been very happy with htem. We currently have an '03 CRV. My neighbor across the st has 2 of the same. His son is getting p1457 evap code. I read some threads here and posted TSB 03-001 that I found but it only listed 98-01 CRV. They took it to a hack in town who replaced a soleniod by the air intake on the motor and charged him 300$. The car threw the code 1 day later. I am a diesel mechanic and don't work on gassers much but I am a mechanic. So what could it be ? Same as the TSB said ? They have been driving it for awhile. Could they have damaged the ECM ? From what I read the sol is suppoed to be under the car ? But the one they replaced was not ? Also possibly the canister vent ? Anyone know where this stuff is located on an 03 crv. I figure my wife's will probably do the same thing at some point so might as well figure it out now on theirs...
Any help/pics would be great.
I have a cheapy code reader but no bi directional scan tool. I could possibly download the asian software for carcode but I really hate the software and was considering switching to Auto eng.
