Before you turn out the light you should have a code read carried out just to make sure nothing sinister is going on with the management system.
If the car is running ok then the code will probably either pertian to the O2 sensor, the EVAP system, or a drop in catalytic efficiency, but this isn't set in stone, just the most popular scenarios.
Very best regards

P0446 - Vent Control of the Evap System. This Evaporative Emissions System is very complicated. These particular DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) can be caused by MORE than they tell you. Three MAJOR components in the system can cause this P0446. 1. Charcoal Canister, 2. Charcoal Canister Filter, 3. Canister Close Valve, 4. Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor, 5. Purge Control Solenoid Valve, 6, Wiring and/or connector/connections between them and the ECU. If you wish to trust the computer's diagnostics, then replace the canister close valve (after you have inspected the Evap Charcoal Canister's air filter and find no problems with restrictions of air flow). If the problem comes back, check the Purge Control Solenoid Valve and the operation of the Fuel Tank Pressure sensor - either one of those components, if malfunctioning, can cause a P0446.

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

You need a service and repair manual for that vehicle, about 15 or 20 bucks at any parts store, and some librarys.
