Hi there:
DTC P0446 - Evaporative Emmission Control System Vent Control Circuit
Evap vent valve has only one purpose. It closes in order to seal the vent so the EVAP system can pressurize and ensure there are no leaks. Evap vent valve is usually supplied Batt. voltage with key on. The ECM's driver controls the ground, and when grounded, activates the valve (closing it). If the ECM detects a short to ground, and open,or a short to battery voltage on the control circuit, P0446 will set.

With a P0446 OBD-II trouble code, here are some things to try:
Replace Vent valve
Repair open, short, or resistance problem in control circuit
Repair open, or short, or resistance problem in power circuit
Replace PCM

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

You can't check a gas cap by seeming. An emmisions staition will check it for you. You don't want to do that hair dryer warming. Flamable and rubber hardening is heat to gas vapors.

Your code means:

P0446 onepx.gif EVAP Canister Purge Vent Blocked

Some of the possible causes:

EVAP vent fresh air hose is clogged, kinked or restricted
EVAP Vent solenoid is contaminated, damaged or has failed
FTP sensor is out-of-calibration, damaged or "skewed"
PCM has failed

All tough thing for a lay person to check. You don't have to take it to the dealer, any repair garage that has the proper equipment can fix this for you.
