Can you please tell me the CODE for this and possiblly a ballpark price for this
I would greatly appreciate it

TheTexasCoder: For the brakes, that could indicate a vacuum leak, and is not related to the EVAP system. As for the tranny fluid, that should be addressed also. From your description it sounds like one of the tranny cooling lines is leaking.
Tyler Ketchum: Dekota i would check out your MAP sensor should be right beside the TPS.. It is also a sensor that deals with idleing problems.. more than likely a sneaky vaccum leak though
J Gomez: Hello Mr. Texas, i did end up replacing the gas which was only 8 buck but that was not it. I have not tried the complete smoke test will soon, as the truck is starting to give me big problems i have notice the break pedal gets real hard when the truck shuts down I wanted to ask if this is normal when you have a large evap leak. also i did go under my truck and notice that one of my hose leaks small trany fluid is that something that is normal or should look in to it.
TheTexasCoder: The code you have is for the EVAP system, and normally points to a faulty gas cap. I would not normally say this, but go ahead and replace it. But, to fix the P0445 code, you will need to hunt down the leaks, if the new gas cap does not fix it. The smoke test is the best way, and I actually made one out of a fog machine, and have a video of it on my channel. Once you get the leak repaired, you will notice your idle settling down, also clear the CEL code once you fix the leak. Keep me updated!
J Gomez: Hey man, i just bought same truck as yours down in austin its a 2002 4wd drove it back to housotn, i just recently change the IAC, TPS, bc the truck was was stalling and jumping on me. it still idles a bit less than before between 500 and seven but the only problem that its giving for code is a P0455 for vacum leak. took it to be smoked but the guy i took didnt know what he was doing since he said it didnt find any leak. any suggestion man..
TheTexasCoder: thanks for watching and thanks for the comment! The rough idle could be a number of things, but I would start with checking for vacuum leaks. Inspect all the vacuum hoses for cracks and any that may have completely broken off, like in the above video. The P0420 is the O2 sensors reporting a "Efficiency below threshhold Bank1". This could certainly be caused by a vacuum leak, not allowing the engine to run properly. Also, check out EricTheCarGuy here on youtube, that guy is awesome!
kentgorgas: I have a 2000 dakota 3.9 5spd. It has a rough idle. It shakes a bit and im trying to fix it. Im thinkin maybe a vacuum leak cause the rpms drop bout every 20 seconds. We went outta town and it threw a P0420 code but not sure if that has anything to do with the idling. Any ideas I would like to avoid taking it to a shop if all possible.
