Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla
He car has been back to the dealer 4 times for the same problem. Firsttime they claimed that they replaced malfunction tank by-pass vsv and codes mentioned are P0440, P0441 and P0446 that were malfunction. the second time they connected the car to their computer and re-scan the vehicle and told us that everything is working fine and the enginelight is off, but after one day the light came back and the car wentback to the dealer for the third time and now they claim that theproblem is from charcoal canister and has to be changed.also after the second visit as soon as i got in my car i could smallgas and it hasn't gone away and the dealer says they did nothing wrongand all the problem is from the canister. we really don't know if we can trust what they say.
The P-0440, P-0441 and P-0446 indicates that you have a leak in the "fume" side of the system. Normally, seeing a 440-441-446 is a loose or defective fuel cap. One would NOT change the evap VSV for a 440-441-446 set of codes. At this point, I agree with you regarding the trust issue. Regarding the caisiter, I cannot speculate yes or no, without further info/codes/etc from your dealer, but, I have replaced several over the past few years; this "could" be true....
