Question about 1999 Lexus Gs 400
I've had the starter, battery, and alternator checked out what should I check next? What could the problem be? Does the cold weather have anything to do with this problem?
SOURCE: HAVE A CODE PO446 1999
P0446 is an evap code. Most likely, you need to change the charcoal canister vent valve (CCV) under the trunk floor. Fuel cap codes set 3 codes at once, P0440. P0441 and P0446, all at the same time.

sets below the intake manifold and takes about 5 hours to replace even if you are handy with cars it is a big job to take on.after doing over 50 or more for an old recall it still takes me about 2 hours to complete.

When a repair shop performs the maintenence, they should be able to reset it for you. usually you have to hold the trip reset in and then turn the key on, keep holding the button until it resets.

Generally I have seen this happen when water gets into the starter and freezes overnight. When you first try to start it, the starter won't work correctly but heat generated while it's stuck will quickly melt the ice and then it works. Only way I know of to eliminate it is to remove the starter and use grease on all the moving parts that connect the solenoid to the starter Bendix drive. Not sure why, but it seems to happen on some starters but not all, even on identical vehicles. I have corrected the problem on many customers cars by greasing but have left mine alone and actually never had a problem other than the initial "being stuck" in the AM. If your starter is very old, you could replace it but that is up to you.
