Default leak detection pump

has anybody inspected, cleaned or replaced anything to do with the leak detection pump. there is very little information on here or anywhere. i have the manual and it doesnt mention this part or the trouble code p2404. its sounds like bigfoot, i heard it exists but cant find much about it lol. ive read alot about what they do and how they work but nothing about servicing it. i have a code 2404 popping up and cant find info on it. wont pass emmisions. anybody who has worked on this please reply. why does the manual not have this code listed or maybe i cant find it. thanks

Thanks for the link but there is an attachment of a diagram in there that don't work. Can you openthat diagram.? Also if it was the gas cap, wouldn't a code come up for a leak instead, meaning it detected a leak. There are codes for that. I guess im going to have to do some digging on the car to find out how to get to this thing

A loose or broken gas cap would throw a &quot;gross leak/no flow &quot; code. Usually the only thing to do is to replace the pump.

i found the leak detection pump filter and cleaned it. for others asking about it like i was, its located behind the rear tire under the panel that comes off. remove the right rear tire and you will see the panel. my filter was dirty but not where it would restrict flow but i cleaned it and reinstalled. i removed my neg. battery cable to reset the codes. check engine light out for now. found that it only works when the car in off for 4 hours before it tries to detect a leak. not sure how often so i will wait and see. if it comes back on im going to replace the pump.

FYI - There is a TSB out about this problem. It may be covered by your warranty...

Thanks for that bulletin on that. I was looking everywhere for it since I heard it was out there. I have 91000 on my 2004 and the warranty says it goes to 80000. Hope this thread will help somebody else.
