2013 has check-engine light for emission issue....

I went to get my 2013 Focus Titanium with 47,000 miles inspected, and realized that the check-engine light was on. I put a code reader on it, and it said P0456 Evaporative Leak Detected (very small leak) and P144A Evaporative Emission System Purge Vapor Line Restricted / Blocked.

I have to get this fixed in order to get the inspection sticker (I have a rejected sticker on it now).

First, is this a free fix under warranty from the dealer?

If not, is this something the dealer may charge a lot to fix?

Is this something that a random garage can fix, or is this basically something only a dealer is prepared to do?

Thank you.

It will definitely be covered. Emissions have a longer warranty than power train even.

Probably NOT still covered, only a limited list of major items is now covered under the emissions warranty.

That all inclusive Emissions warranty has been gutted over the years, I'll save the political rant

Sad but true. There are actually two emission warranties.

Emissions Defect Warranty 3 year/36,000 miles
Emissions Performance Warranty 2 years/24,000 miles

The evap system would have been covered but he has exceeded the warranty coverage period since his vehicle has 47,000 miles.

The only parts that are covered for 8 years/80,000 miles are:

Catalytic Converter
ECU
OBD
TCM

You may want to read into this. I had the CEL go off for an 02 sensor, then again for p144a. Auto parts store wanted $140 for the EVAP canister so I was going to wait a bit to fix. Turns out, it can lead to a collapsed fuel tank requiring a new tank, pump, evap canister, etc.

On about a half hour trip, I noticed my fuel economy improving dramatically. When I came to a stop, my car wouldn't downshift soon enough. Revs got down to 500 before it would shift and literally shake me. Then I noticed the fuel tank was full, when it should have been 3/4.

There's a thread here about it, a $40ish purge valve that prevents it all. I did it a few days ago and it's all been great since. This is should be it.

yeah, you should definitely fix it. i dont know how much the part is but i can say it is very easy to get to it and replace. it's right in between your engine and battery box. couple clips and you can swap it out.
