EVAP Monitor on European Cars: Real World Diagnosis of DMTL Systems

On a business trip several years ago, I was in a country that has no emissions regulations. The hotel parking lot was filled with late-model rental cars, but cars parked on the street were much older and obviously well past their best years. The strong smell of gasoline on those sun-baked streets made it obvious that a functioning evaporative emission control system (EVAP) was not important there.

This bulletin applies to 2011 Audi A8 vehicles. The MIL may be on, with no leak found in the EVAP system, and a DTC P0456 (very small EVAP leak) stored in the ECM.

Owners of 2010-2014 Chevy Camaro vehicles may comment about an intermittent pop or multiple popping noises from the rear of the vehicle shortly after a cold start or EVAP purge event.

This bulletin applies to troubleshooting DTC P0457 on 2008 and later Subaru models. When troubleshooting any evaporative system trouble code, particularly P0457, don’t forget to check evaporative system hose connections for being in their correct locations.
