Code p0446, code po340

P0446 is a malfuntion in what is called your EVAP system spicifly the canaster purge valve . What this system dose is it takes fuel vaper and exese fuel from the fuel return at the gas tank and on damand at at hire speed or heavy load and send it to the intake manifold to be burned so it dosn't leak into the atimisphere. The P0340 code is a mis fire on #4 cylinder random and is being caused by the 0446 code.P01850 sounds like a transmissiton code that is like a byproduct and also caused by the P0446 as well .The first thing to check is the gas cap the system is a sealed system its the cheapest and easyest thing to check if it is leaking it would cause all of these problems . If its not that then you need to look at canaster purge valve its one of these two things

Motor stops in hot weather and restart in a few minits

I f you are not getting any engine light - MIL light on the dash board . I would have the fuel filter changed . If this dosn't correct the problem then you have some kind of a problem with the fuel pump eighter electrical or a restrection with the EVAP system eighter the canaster vent valve or canaster purge valve . It is likely vapor lock in the fuel line or insiffent fuel delevery also check your gas cap the system needs to have pressure in it but also needs to vent at the correct times thus the canaster vent valve that sends fuel vapor to the purge valve to be burned at higher engine speeds from the fuel tank but it is a sealed system . Try the fuel filter more then likely this is the problem it should be replaced on a 5 year bacis as a rule and will damage the fuel pump if not done

Where is the evap vent solenoid locate on a 99 silverado

Its in the rear frame area of the vehicle its mounted to the frame or a cross member between it there all a little differant location but close to the charcoal and fuel tank . They also have a filter inside them that can be cleaned . But the lines come from the tank eighter off the pump or more likely the rollover valve at the front of the tank and allwas gose to the characoal canaster . It works in conjuntion with the canaster purge valve on the intake manifold it takes the exess vaper from the fuel system stores it in the canster when the vent valves opens and then when the engine speed is high enough the purge valve opens sending the vapor the the intake manifold to be burned at the higher engine speed more demand for fuel condution

What is the canister?

"Canister" usually refers to the charcoal canister. It's part of an emissions system called the evap system. It's a canister that contains a refined form of charcoal that absorbs evaporated gasoline from the fuel tank, and stores it until the computer opens a valve and it is burned by the engine.

I have a po442 code on a 2007 Chevy Tahoe

p0422 is a small leak in what is called your EVAP system basicly its the pressure that is held inside the fuel tank its an emissions thing there two valves one by the tank called the canaster vent solenoid and one on the intake manifold called the canaster purge solenoid . The vent sends fume from the tank to the charcoal canaster when the pressure is high inside the tank and is stored until the engine speed is high enough to open the purge valve to allow this vapor to be burned in the engine It could be anywhere in the system a leak but the gas cap often be the problem if its not sealing ther you will have a small leak in this system . It could be something else but see if when you remove the cap after driveing for a while if you have pressure when you remove the cap it is likely the problem

My 1998 gmc envoy code #P0453 has been a problem as well for me forgot to mention earlier on last question. any help, thanks

Are you the guy who had P0302 code.P0453 is the fuel tank pressure sensor is reading to much pressure to high that would explane why it would pass emissions Iwould check a part called the canaster vent soleniodif its stuck or cloged you would have a high pressure level in the tank it sends fuel vaper to the charcoal canaster from the tank where it is stored until your at highway speed then the canaster purge sloeniod opens and the vaper is burned in the engine. Ihave a 96 blazer and had a simaler problem but i was getting P0304 # 4 cylinder misfire although i had to replace the fuel pump to but that was part of the problem.You need to remove the spare tire and its on the top of the frame cross member above the tire mount check the filter thats in it and you can check to see if it works by jumping 12 volts across it it should click you will feel it move if its good. Ican't say for sure but i can't see the vehicle and this makes a lot of sence to check first and likely will clear up the problem it cost about 30 dollars for a new one

P0442 means that there is a small leak in what is called the evap system What it dose is take gas fumes from the fuel tank and divert them to the charcoal canaster to be burned in the combustition system routed through two solinoid valves called the canaster vent valve and the canaster purge valve the vent being from the tankto the canaster and the purge being canaster to the combustion chamber Its a small leak it could be anyware in the system but i would replace the gas cap first many times it starts to leak at the seal and will set this code Its all for emissions and dosn;t have a large effict on over all proformance unless you need to pass emissions

How do you install a gas line filter for a Mercury Cougar

first fallow the gas line from the fuel injectors fuel rail they look like spark plugs with 2 cables sticking out the fuel rail is located on top of them it has a fitting with a rubber hose comeing out fallow that hose it will lead you to another fitting with a canaster connected simmilar to the one you have already bought and release the canaster with precaution cause it does retain fuel pressure even when the car is off you dont want gas in your eyes it can retain up to 100psi of gas which is more then enough to cause harm to anyone who gets it in there eyes put in the new canaster and make sure it is properly tightened and has no leaks before returning to the road

I replaced a hydrolic clutch on a 1988 prelude. I don,t know how to bleed the system. Help?????

you need 2 people, 1 with a spanner on the bleeder and the other to pump the clutch. fill the fluid canaster, pump the clutch, with the bleeder shut, then hold the clutch down then undo the bleeder, without releasing the clutch, allow the clutch to go to the floor air will come out, then tighten the bleeder, then you can release the clutch, keep repeating until you have a stream of fluid and no air, always make sure you have done up the bleeder before you release the clutch, and mke sure you have fluid in the canaster.
