Help! with Fuel Tank Vent System


Recommended Posts

Guys,

I've been helping a friend with his 2002 TT and a very frustrating (intermittent!!) P0455 DME code. He needs to get through emissions inspection, in AZ they just connect to the OBDII port and the system won't show a "ready" state so it will fail.

We've seen several references to what the problem could be, just trying to narrow it down. We have the DME manual, shop manual (I thought it was complete) and completed a lot of research on the forums. Some things that will help,

- We need a full drawing of the tank vent system with the location of components; where is it in the manuals?

- References online indicate the simplified system for detection is as the attached. Where is the pressure sensor "5" located at? We've looked around the tank and the evac canister, doesn't appear to be anywhere near.

-We hear some kind of pump that comes on with the ignition, is that part of the evac system, where is it?

Guys,

Thankyou!

- The gas cap has been replaced a couple of times

- Trying to follow DME diagnotic procedure on leak checking but have no diagram.

- The car has spent time at an experienced Pcar shop, exercised all the system diagnostics using a Porsche tool. Everything appeared to act normally during all the actuation tests.

Loren,

"Check ventilation line on tank

On the turbo, the connections are under a square cover in front of the differential. Are there connections under the battery tray we cannot see, in particular, where is the pressure transducer?

Thanks!
