Default Keep to the Code P1456: RESULTS

Background: getting check engine code, changed out gas caps, twice.

Got the code again, and rechecked code getting P1456.

Several of you noted the EVAP canister and selanoid that sits above the gas tank.

Senior tech at Honda check this and it was indeed bad. As I'm attempting to sell the car, he tried a used part, to no avail. Code still was there.

Put on a $350 part, canister, valves, and still getting the code.
Now he has dropped the gas tank, and found a 1/8" diameter hole on top of the tank. We are waiting on a used tank.

I'm $650 into the original part and labor, plus this used tank, and any other labor for dropping the tank. Honda said they would help me, and the dealership has indeed been pretty good to deal with.

So, it looks as if my three respondents to the original posting inquiring about the code were right. Many thanks.

NEW ISSUE: Your thoughts. This is a 2002 Accord EX, 178,000 in excellent condition, other than this issue. It has had very, very few non-maintenance repairs. We were planning on keeping it a few more years, but have changed our minds, having just got a 2015 CRV. In the past 10,000 miles we have changed the timing belt and water pump, replaced both front and rear brake pads, new Micheline Defender tires, and new headlight bulbs, new wiper blades, and polished the headlights.

Before this check engine problem, I offer this to person for $4500, which may have been way underpriced.

NOW, I am torn between keeping my word at $4500, and indeed trying to raise the price to $5500 to $5900 to recover some of my costs. The original person could indeed back out, as he had not committed to buy this in any way.

IS THIS CHANGING of the offering price wrong on my part?

If he agreed to buy w/ check engine light resolved, then you have a dilemma. If agreement was "as-is", then you would be justified in adding cost of repairs.

good luck
