I had a check engine light on and a code which stated this sensor had low input. After determining the wiring was not at fault, I replaced the sensor with this part. Its been about a month now, and the code/light have not come back. This part can be tricky to replace since it is located on the sending unit on top of the gas tank. You may need to lower the tank to gain access to this sensor.

Ordering parts online was great, however, I also purchased an air pump for the same vehicle, I was told it was at two different locations besides the fuel pressure sensor. I drive to the two locations, which neither had the part in stock; I asked the last location to look where I could pick up the part in San Antonio and the counterman could not locate the part. I later had a notification online to credit me the amount of the part; that was fine, however I drove to two different sides of town, waste of time and fuel. I bought the air pump at AutoZone; please convince me you are the guys to buy from.....

        The CEL was on. My Tech2 scanner said it was a PO446. I checked the EVAP vent solenoid by commanding on and could bot pass air through, went off air would pass through. I noticed the FTP sensor said it was 620 H20 When it should be zero or a lot lower. The scan tool said constant vacuum also. I removed the sensor same reading unplugged the reading went a volt higher. Bought a new sensor...solved

                      Recently my 99 Silverado Check engine light came on. I checked for Codes and only P0453 popped up. I did some research and figured it was a faulty FTP Sensor. Luckily once I replaced it the check engine light turned off. The part fits just as well as the factory part.

                        Once the fuel pump is accessible, change out is simple and easy. Cured the P0452 error code immediately. This item is an exact replic of the original sensor. Highly recommend it if you can get to the fuel pump.

                          Replacing this sensor stopped my MIL from coming on. It's hard to believe the old one failed since it came on the new fuel pump that I replaced only a couple years ago. The codes I was getting before I replaced it were 0452 and 0448.

Truck is hard to start in the morning when cold. when it gets a little warmer starts ok. took it to garage. they were no help. said it was a dirty fuel filter. replaced the filter, inline and on fuel pump. still get code. could this sensor be whats causing my trouble?

                              This BWD Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor - Part No. EC2501 is located on top of the fuel tank on your 1998 Buick LeSabre and the code P1441 show up Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System flow during non-purge. Repairing this electrical malfunction, checks the Fuel Tank Pressure sensor at ambient pressure. Then checks for a stuck open EVAP purge valve and verifies that the fuel tank pressure sensor accurately reacts to EVAP system pressure changes. If the EVAP purge and engine vacuum lines are switched at the EVAP purge solenoid, the solenoid valve will leak vacuum. The PCM will command the EVAP purge and EVAP canister vent valves closed with the scan tool Seal System EVAP output control function activated. Fuel tank pressure should not decrease under this condition.

                            My engine light is always on. The code from my mechanic is "vapor leak". We have done the smoke pressure test and evidently the leak is minute and doesn't show up, but the engine light continues to be on. I replaced the gas cap, so have a tight fit. Could the problem be in the Fuel Vapor Sensor?

                              With reference to this BWD Fuel Vapor/Vent Pressure Sensor - part# EC2501, the fuel vapor pressure sensor should be the possible cause of the problem. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
