1998 Chevy Lumina Check Engine Light - Code P0442 - HELP!!!

I have a 1998 Chevy Lumina car that the check engine light wont go off. Troubleshooting code is P0442. I took it to get echecked and they wouldn't test it because of the light. I am guessing they checked the fuel cap and that was fine. We have also changed several hoses we thought could be the issue...What Now? It still won't go off....HELP!!

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Cobalt, how do you reset a fault code?

Your car has a OBD2 hook up under the dash somewhere on the drivers side, You have to have a computer to hook up to that ODB plug and reset it, If you live near a Autozone they will clear the code for you for free, One other thing you try is disconnecting your battery for about 30 mins, that works on alot cars to reset the check light.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu. The check engine

"This indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine."
Hope that helps..

SOURCE: po452 trouble code changed sensor engine light

you may have to drive it several days for the light to go off, or have the codes cleared. personally I would just drive it. if the computer tests it, and it passes the test, it will go off on its own.

What causes a 1997 chevy lumina and check engine light to stays on?


You need to find out what codes are set causing the CHECK ENGINE light to illuminate. GO to any Advance Auto or AutoZone and they will read the codes for free. Do not assume that just because a code mentions a part that the part is faulty, especially if there are multiple codes set. Come back here and tell us the codes and we can help you determine your problem. Without the code(s), there are dozens of things that can set the CHECK ENGINE light.

98 c1500 troubleshooting code p0442. where do i begin with this?


Code 442 should not have any effect on how the engine runs.
The code means the engine computer has detected a small leak in the venting system for the gas tank. The most common reason is a loose or faulty gas cap.

My 1998 chevy lumina won't start right away and


The cooling system shouldn't be losing much coolant.

If you're putting in coolant regularly
If you're seeing slick oil in the coolant
If you're hearing noise in the engine while driving

You may have a crack in your engine block and your engine isn't being lubricated properly anymore. This will cause noise and leaks, make a motor run really rough and cause rough starting.

I suggest you bring your vehicle in for a coolant system pressure test and a chassis leak check. This should be a free service from any auto shop that wants your money for repairs.

Spark plugs usually degrade your performance slowly and don't make noise while doing it unless in extreme cases.

Good luck!

1998 Chevy Lumina has check Engine light on and code says egr valve which has been replaced now what


Check engine lights sometimes do not go off right away. To reset the check engine light, disconnect your battery, turn the lights on, on your car ( to drain any power left in the computer systems), reconnect the battery and the light should be off. If it comes back on, the EGR valve was not installed properly.

1998 lumina engine light keeps coming on but i dont know why. it goes off sometimes but then keeps coming back on. any solutions?


Since the check engine light does not specify what the problem is a scanner is needed to access the engine control computer. You can have it checked at any Chevy dealership and/or local auto repair shop.
