NEED HELP WITH CARD CODES BEFORE GOING ON A ROAD TRIP...

1998 Honda Accord • 298,000 miles

Which of these (3) car codes are an immediate need (if any) to take care of before continuing to drive my 1998 Honda Accord, and how to repair it?
Code 1: P1738 / Code 2: P1457 / Code: P1381

All codes are an indication of failures in systems. They all need to be checked by a shop for failures. Identifying failures from code numbers never works without proper diagnostics. Get a shop to check these for you to insure a safe trouble free trip.

P1381 –CYP intermittent interruption.
This is the code that can result in engine nonstarting and performance issues. It could be a loose or contaminated wire connector at the sensor. Highest priority on list you should be checking.

P1457 – Leak Detected In EVAP Control System. Not likely to cause any problelm other that emission. Could be due to a loose fuel cap.

P1738 - 2nd clutch pressure switch. Likely to cause shifting problem. Not to be taken lightly as it can result in transmission failure.
