Cost of diagnosing the P1495 DODGE code
Labor: 1.0The cost of diagnosing the P1495 DODGE code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary widely across the country, and even within the same city. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
When is the P1495 DODGE code detected?Malfunction is detected when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detected the pump solenoid did not change status when activated,
P1495 DODGE Possible Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors
P1495 DODGE MeaningThe Evaporative emissions system is designed to prevent the escape of fuel vapors from the fuel system. Leaks in the system ca allow vapors to escape into the atmosphere. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage.
During the self-diagnostics, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) first checks the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for electrical and mechanical faults. If the first checks pass, the PCM then uses the LDP to seal the vent valve and pump air into the system to pressurize it. If a leak is present, the PCM will continue pumping the LDP to replace the air that leaks out. The PCM determines the size of the leak based on how fast/long it must pump the LDP as it tries to maintain pressure in the system.
