Inspection
When the engine is shut off, the pressure change in the fuel tank by the ambient temperature is monitored by NVLD and when the engine is started, ECM judges whether there is a leak or not through the monitored data.
If a leak is detected, ECM displays DTC P0455 or P0456.
Process overview
If a leak is detected by NVLD, inspect the vehicle as the flow chart below to distinguish whether the error was caused by leakage of fuel system or NVLD itself.

Leakage Test with FTPS(Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor)


Leakage Test with FTPS(Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor)
If a leak is detected by NVLD, leakage test with FTPS is performed more than 3~5 times to check tank system components. This test is only for production line or service shop to check where the real cause(NVLD or fuel system) of DTC P0455 or P0456 is.
