I have just gotten all my minor repairs done on my 1997 Volvo 850 GLT and now two days later, the check engine light comes on :(
Reading through the forums, I followed someone's advice and "borrowed" an ODBII from Auto Zone ($161 deposit required). System was easy to work and the P0455 code appeared. P0455 is Evap Emission Control System (Large). OK, where do I go from here? Are there pictures or diagrams of what I need to be looking at?
I have reset the code, what is the chance that it won't come back?

Well, i've had the message come up once, and the technician replaced the Evap control Valve attached to the radiator fan.

But do this only if the message returns, cos its quite costly.

Does anyone know where there are pictures or diagrams of the system? So far my light has not come back on, but it is only a matter of time.
