@  BeaterStatus : (18 April 2014 - 01:34 PM) Hey guys, hope life is giving you all time to work on your projects.
@  Dylan214 : (18 April 2014 - 12:27 PM) whats up guys
@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:41 AM) Really need to sorth through the random junk inside from where the wife and I moved so I can get back to stripping down.
@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:40 AM) With all the funky rain and snow, my Stratus has sunken somewhat into mud. I might need assistance moving it from its current location, heh. Dad can tug me out, I'm sure. Need to get it fired and roll it a bit again, been a while.
@  KennyL : (15 April 2014 - 04:01 AM) Fresh oil and filter for the Grand Prix yesterday. Gotta keep the supercharged daily screamer running right, heh.
@  KennyL : (12 April 2014 - 01:50 PM) lol, wow
@  BeaterStatus : (11 April 2014 - 02:58 PM) Check out the photo dump in my progress log. There's some interesting stuff in there.... lol
@  BeaterStatus : (11 April 2014 - 01:45 PM) I know right? Just wait till you see what I found INSIDE THE MOTOR
@  KennyL : (08 April 2014 - 09:57 AM) Solid numbers.
@  BeaterStatus : (06 April 2014 - 06:40 PM) Compression test on the Breeze had good results! 220psi across the board :D
@  BeaterStatus : (05 April 2014 - 11:30 AM) Pics please!
@  KennyL : (04 April 2014 - 02:35 PM) I think so. Good to see progress.
@  Low-Speed : (04 April 2014 - 11:07 AM) Kenny, reckon I should add some pictures?
@  Koolguy007 : (31 March 2014 - 06:41 PM) Im thinking about posting my rebuild log. Lots of pictures, but its mainly just a rebuild.
@  Low-Speed : (31 March 2014 - 04:38 PM) Kenny is correct, I don't post a lot. I have my rods, pistons, windage tray and base motor. need to have some machine work, order mains and gaskets.
@  KennyL : (30 March 2014 - 01:59 AM) 2.4 DOHC
@  KennyL : (30 March 2014 - 01:59 AM) Solid high compression build with large cams can fairly well do 220 HP at the wheels.
@  Koolguy007 : (30 March 2014 - 01:53 AM) When I get my job back I will be doing a good fun street car. Hopefully a 200 hp NA 2.4L with the suspension goodies. 200 hp shouldn't be too hard right?
@  Mckinney_Tx : (29 March 2014 - 09:27 PM) just checking in. i still pop in folks :D
@  Dylan214 : (27 March 2014 - 01:36 PM) Same, once i get the extra cash flow. dam NYS taxes

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.
