@  Dylan214 : (16 October 2014 - 09:23 AM) Theronz, Look in general discussion for answer
@  Dylan214 : (16 October 2014 - 06:01 AM) thats what i thought. okay, let me pull the data again i will let u no
@  KennyL : (16 October 2014 - 04:15 AM) "final drive" would be the differential ratio.
@  KennyL : (16 October 2014 - 04:14 AM) I think the technical name is "transfer gears", since they aren't actually part of the drive system.
@  theronz : (16 October 2014 - 03:23 AM) how much are road rage gears worth these days anyways?
@  theronz : (15 October 2014 - 04:48 PM) ehhh final drive gears? transfer gears? input/output? i dont remember the specific name.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 03:01 PM) let me no what gears your actually talking about they have 4 different names.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 02:40 PM) let me look on all data hold on
@  theronz : (15 October 2014 - 01:02 PM) can anyone PLEASE pull off a trans side cover and find out what size sockets hold the gears on?
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 10:25 AM) The main thing I wanted was the 2.4 stuff and the wideband. I could take his 2.4 apart, combine good parts and some other parts along with new gaskets and such and build a hell of a 2.4 N/A to hold me over until I can get supercharger stuff.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 10:22 AM) It is a JA, but his car is an auto. Has the rare "road rage" straight cut gears to give a much better gear ratio for accelleration.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 10:00 AM) Yeah, its a JA right? I could use the 5speed stuff.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 08:59 AM) I could drive there in a few hours...heh. No cash.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 08:59 AM) He lives in northern Indiana, pretty far from you.
@  Dylan214 : (15 October 2014 - 08:54 AM) SO tempting but how far away are u ?
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 06:10 AM) I would suggest at least finding the time to pull the trans side gears. I know Joe would grab those and if you don't have a stock set handy I could find time to pull the side gears from my spare trans and send them your way perhaps. The car will be much more "saleable" when it's getting better fuel econ, heh.
@  KennyL : (15 October 2014 - 06:07 AM) OH, I see. I forgot about the getting it running bit. No way I can come up with that, though. If I had any extra cash for car parts at the moment, I would personally come up there and nab that 2.4, pull the wideband myself and nab some other goodies...heh.
@  theronz : (14 October 2014 - 07:43 PM) its running perfectly with the original 2.0sohc installed bro. hell it was my ONLY mode of transpo from 7/13 to 6/14, I only parked it cuz i got my new cars. you can jump in and drive it across the country. hows $2500 jammed FULL of spare extra parts and a 2.4 in the trunk sound?

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.
