P1441, EVAP Emissions System Flow During Non-Purge.
you seem to have an evap problem these problems are hard to diagnose sometimes it can only be the gas cap or maybe rust around the seat of the gaz cap
get the code erase and see if it comes back on and if it does check gas cap and arroung the filling neck if there is rust if no visible rust apears you will have to get it check with smoke to see where it leaks

hope it will help you

Have a great day

1996 buick century misfire


My 96 century with a 3.1 v-6 gave me fits for years shooting a 171 code(running too lean) I wound up changing the fuel filter and the problem went away. If it's been a while since the filter was changed, try it.

Check for broken wires in the door jamb of the drivers door. You will have to **** the rubber boot which the wires pass through to gain access. This was a very common problem for those vehicles, and there is probably more than one wire broken.

The radio in my 1996 Buick century had a clock light that did not go off when the car was shut off, so the battery would go dead after 2 days. Disconnected the radio and all was well. Getting ready for a new radio now.

96 Buick Century stalls....


I spent endless time on this same problem on my 1992 Wagon. I changed out the computer but no help. It turned out to be the top dead center crank sensor that tells the system when the crank passes TDC. It is a small magnet essentially about the siz of a pencil eraser in the flywheel. it was cracked and occasionally would not "sense" and the car would just quit. troubleshooting was a nightmare because the computer diagnostics on the 1992 are less capable than the 1996 model. Anyway that is a relatively inexpensive fix and easy to know if it worked. Let me know how you solve this.

Code p0440


P0440 is a EVAP leak detected, try changing the gas cap and reseting the ECM to clear the service engine light. If you can not clear the code it takes about three start up with out any issues to clear the code and after 100 start up's the codes will clear from the ECM's history. Note use the GM OEM gas cap for a replacement, anything else is just garbage and you'll be replacing it again with in 6 months. If it's not the gas cap, need to take it to a garage and have them do a smoke test to locate the leak in the system. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. be glad to help
