Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120507 miles
Yesterday Morning, My check engine light came on and stayed on. I pluged my OBD-II reader in and the car kicked back code P0455. I looked it up in my HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL and it stated EVAP system malfunction (Large Leak Detected).
My only concern is that if " she" is still driveable. Considering this car makes the following trips on a weekly basis:
(Week 1) - Bronx NY to Sleepy Hollow NY (apx 30 Miles round trip).
(Week 2) - Bronx NY --> Washingtonville NY --> Highland Mills NY --> Sleepy Hollow NY (apx 140 Miles from start to finish)
(Week 3) - Bronx NY --> Port Jervis NY --> Highland Mills NY --> Sleepy Hollow NY (apx 180 Miles trip)
Also, a major consideration, this car is used as an Emergency Vehicle. There are times where in response to an emergency situation, " she" will reach speeds in excess of 80 MPH
