@  KennyL : (27 March 2015 - 05:39 AM) I think I figured out how I want my lighting to be as a final revision, whenever I can actually get to doing cosmetic stuff (it works for now, as far as being a "safety" device). Those partial black reflector headlights (as the Stratus will do little driving at night anymore, if any, so I'm not worried about light output), lightly smoked "Breeze tails", and re-finish my clear 3rd brake lense and lightly smoke it as well. I just might still end up building some LED tails, but I'm not sure.
@  sgtmyers88 : (26 March 2015 - 11:41 PM) Also got a set of Stratus Tail Lights for $50 total stock.
@  sgtmyers88 : (26 March 2015 - 11:40 PM) I got 3 extra distributor caps and rotors for the 2.5 v6 if anyone is interested. $20 for the set. PM me.
@  Dylan214 : (26 March 2015 - 07:32 AM) Pursuader, did u say your pullies would work with a turbo setup? I bought one a year ago
@  Dylan214 : (26 March 2015 - 07:27 AM) turbosport, look at your log.
@  KennyL : (26 March 2015 - 04:32 AM) I did fire the poor old "purple beast" Stratus the day before yesterday. Not capable of pulling out of the mud, too little tire tread and weight I guess.
@  KennyL : (26 March 2015 - 04:21 AM) I'd have to drop my parts car's tank and verify the pump assembly was in good condition. Unfortunately, it's going to be muddy as crap up there now since we're getting more rain...heh.
@  turbosport : (25 March 2015 - 05:16 PM) Does anyone have a spare fuel pump assembly laying around? I'll post pictures of mine in my log.
@  pursuader : (25 March 2015 - 04:21 PM) thanks Kenny hey guys I still have 7 pullies !!! left
@  KennyL : (25 March 2015 - 07:25 AM) Yea, a 255 will be perfect for the turbo R/T.
@  theronz : (24 March 2015 - 09:20 PM) been running a 255 for years. note that it is considerably louder.
@  turbosport : (24 March 2015 - 05:25 PM) alright i just wanted to make sure. because the fuel pump took a crap in the turbo strat
@  KennyL : (23 March 2015 - 04:56 AM) Like the old style plastic "blackout" covers? Looks like Jegs stocks the traditional GTS blackouts still. http://www.ebay.com/...s-/200775268747
@  KennyL : (23 March 2015 - 04:52 AM) There were many people who used the 255 in their 1gs. You just get one with a 1g Neon install kit and you're golden. If you're doing a fanicier fuel system you can always "spoolboy" mod, but I believe a 255 will work with a stock "returnless" system and FPR as well and give a little more headroom.
@  pursuader : (22 March 2015 - 10:12 PM) are there any head light covers for 1997 stratus? anymore?

So what is it?

Did I do some additional damage to my a/c system?

Thanks.

Freeze Frame Data from my scanner:
Fuel Sys 1: CL
Fuel Sys 2: NA
Calc Load(%): 5.88
ECT(deg C): 73
MAP(kPa): 29.00
Engine RPM:1280
Veh Spd(km/h): 56

P.S: I already googled the code, so I'm looking for more than just the basics... does this have anything to do w/ the A/C system? Is it possible that with the heat generated from snapping the drive belt over the seized a/c clutch something else broke?

This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

Causes: A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:

•A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
•A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
•Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

Possible Solutions: With a p0455, the most common repair is to:

•Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
•Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
•Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary

Thank you Jess.

I already saw that...

Rather than just the definition of the code, I was more looking for an educated guess based on what just happened to the car's a/c system...

Car is running fine, although the CEL just appeared a few mins ago. A/C Clutch seized about two weeks ago. I was driving it for maybe a total of 10 miles while the light was on.

So looks like it was the gas cap, it was never screwed down... I put it back on and cleared the code.

I was worried that when the belt snapped it hit a hose or broke something under the hood, but maybe not.

Thanks!

That's great, glad to hear it was nothing bad and/or expensive.

I hate this code. i had this code so many times thats its not funny. here was my fix. the EGR tube that goes into the upper intake manifold was loose. there was a leak. if you have the car running and run your finger around there and you feel a little bit of suction. there it is. at school i did the smog test and thats how i found it. there are many ways. but dont replace parts when you dont need them. hope this kind of helps. hahaha. nothing to do with the Air Conditioning system. its an emission problem.

man i feel stupid. maybe i should read all the posts like 5 times before replying. i didnt even read that it was fixed. lol. WOOOOSH right over the head.
