    i have the same issue insie of my car smells like oil or gas once in a while. im assuming this is related the p1457 code?
    once you changed the two way valve was the code and smell gone?

    I am planning to purchase the canister vent shut valve, but i see a TSB 03001 from honda saying it can be the 2 way BYPASS SOLENOID .
    Whats your guys opinion of which goes out first. Should i replace the canister vent shut valve first and see?

    i have a 2002 accord se.

    Yes it can be either one, or it can even be a cracked rubber hose down there. However in most cases its the vent shut off valve.

    If you want to be 100% sure you'd have to diagnose to see if the vent shut off valve works or not, and the same for the 2-way valve.

    Just replace them all. The canister, the vent shut, and the 2-way.

    just did my canister and vent shut valve and reset the cel (that i've had for nearly two years :lawl:). hopefully it doesn't come back. i had p1456 and 57. definitely easy work too, even if your shit is rusted to hell haha.

    i noticed from seeing all of the people who commented that 98/99 year cars needed the Canister vent shut valve but with alt of research i noticed 2002 models tend to need the bypass solenoid/ or 2 way bypass valve. TSB 03001. I am going to purchase both bypass solenoid and the 2 way by pass valve get it installed and go from there.

    Damn Sketch you had the 1457 light on for 2 years, i see many people saying that if the 1457 code is up for too long it can damage the PCM because it will be firing at a shorted out valve/solenoid. You got lucky.

    yeah, well i was originally told by a friend that it was something completely different, i fixed what he recommended and the light was still on...i guess he's not too reliable haha. it was also about that time i stopped giving a crap about my car haha. i had it scanned again a few weeks ago by a different friend and he told me the codes and what i should probably replace. so far so good.
