After fueling on Friday my car would not start. Took about 10 tries before it started up. Next day I get my check engine light, a farting noise from the back of the car. My oil level was low so we added oil and the noise stopped. Tuesday it started idling hard and shaking when at a stop. RPM meter was moving up and down but still stayed below 1 rpm. Code it’s throwing is P1450. Autozone suggested part is the vapor canister. Online I’m seeing it code be the purge valve, or the valve solenoid. Can’t seem to find just the valve online without all the hoses. Anyone know the part # or if I’m even correct on thinking it’s the purge valve? Thanks car got a new engine at 115k miles, now has 152k if that matters.
I can hear you knocking, but you can't come in. OK, so I've an appointment with the dealership next Tuesday for AGAIN the driver door ajar warning sensor/switch. They fixed it once and it's back again. Drives me nuts... it can't be ignored! It'll ding-ding with every slow/stop that I come to. With the factory 60 k almost up in 10 days I'm having this done AND I'm going to have them look over the filler breather/vent tube for the petrol fill. Thunk-thunk after a fill up. I tried last fill up and notice I could fill a heck of a lot additional fuel and it never over flowed. I also notice that the fuel gauge registered higher on the console display. Usually I've been not pushing the "extra" petrol into the tank after the first click stop of the pump at the station. So, I'm wondering is there anyone out there that has had their Edge looked at for this issue? What exactly was found and the resolve that was implemented? Or Is this even an issue? Vehicle runs fine and fuel consumption inline with others at about ~9.5L per 100km's or 29~30 mpg highway and 12~13L or ~22 mpg in town. Is this something that I could look at for the vent /breather tube? I'm handy and not scared to take things on myself. I simply need to know where I might start looking for "this potential" problem with EVAP? I recall years ago being told by my mechanic buddy that when filling fuel, "Don't pump and pump to round up the cash value to even it as you risk overflow of raw fuel back to the EVAP canister with the charcoal and that can damage it and it is a costly part to replace." Any thoughts anyone? Thanks
