P0442 trouble code po442 - onepx.gif EVAP System Small Leak (0.040") Detected

EVAP fuel tank or canister vapor hoses leaking or damaged
EVAP system component leaking, damaged or has failed
Fuel tank cap is loose, or the cap release pressure is incorrect
Leak detection pump damaged or leaking

You can try the gas cap first, if that does not help you will need to take it to a repair shop, Small leaks are very hard to find. If you want to know what turns on the light here it is.

Cold engine startup (ECT sensor from 40-90�F and within 10�F of the BTS input at startup), fuel level more than 1/2 full, engine running, EVAP leak test "on", and the PCM detected a leak greater than 0.040� but less than 0.080" somewhere in the system.
This code sets in 2 Trip(s).
