With any code, there is a sensor that is reporting a number to the computer that is out of the normal range. In the case of P1456, it is a pressure sensor.

Now the problem could be the sensor is reading properly and you have a leak in the tank side of the EVAP system, or your sensor is not working properly. This is where you have to do some diagnostic work to find the problem.

Has any work been done your car recently?

Even without having any work done under the car, those rubber vacuum hoses are still about 17 years old. Make sure they aren't getting brittle & cracking.
