Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Check engine light is on (CEL), and my code reader is telling me its a P1457 error.

(DTC) P1457: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) control system leak detected (EVAP control canister system)

Most common fix is the "EVAP control canister vent shut valve" (Honda item #17310-S5A-L31)

This is located underneath the car by the fuel tank. It's attached to the charcoal canister.

Apparently a common problem in regions where salt is used on the roads.
