2001 accord surging
My 2001 accord 4 cylinder surges slightly when coming to a stop. The check engine light is on and is coding p1457 (vacuum leak near evap canister). Are the problems related or do i have a transmission problem?Any help would be appreciated.

RE: 2001 accord surging
Good chance the vac leak is related to your issue. See if you can track it down, clear the code, then drive it for a few days.

BTW, that code only points to a leak in the evap system, not the canister itself, although that could leak. Typically small leaks can be at the gas cap, a rusty fill neck on the tank, or a rotten hose. Could also be the purge valve not sealing correctly and leaking to the atmosphere. If you don't see anything obvious you might want to take it to someone who can do a smoke test. They pump smoke into the system and the leak will really be obvious.
