SOURCE: p0440,p0441,p0446

These codes are all for the Evaporative Emissions System.

P0440- Evaporative emissions system fault- just saying there's something wrong with the system.

P0441- Evaporative emissions system- Incorrect purge flow- saying that the system isn't purging the raw fuel vapors (hydrocarbons- HC) as well as it should.

P0446- Evaporative emissions system- Control valve circuit low- there is a valve, usually located on the charcoal canister at the rear of the vehicle, that opens to allow fresh air to enter the evaporative emissions system as the engine vacuum purges the fuel vapors from the charcoal canister and closes when purge is not needed to prevent leakage of those fuel vapors to the atmosphere (HC is a greenhouse gas and is regulated as such by the fed gov't).

Given that you have the incorrect purge flow code and the control valve code together, my bet is that the vent control valve has failed (causing the P0446) and is not opening to allow fresh air into the system to displace the air from within the system that is being pulled to the engine. Since you have no fresh air entering the system, the engine will pull a vacuum on the system instead of the vapors "flowing" into the engine (causing the P0441).


I hope that this is helpful to you!!!

if you have replace the purge solenoid the problem is either the vaccum supply hose is loosing vaccum or the purge side is hose is either blocked or cracked.

SOURCE: engine lite on two codes p0440 p0522 what are

p0440-Evaporator Emissions Control Malfunction. P0522- Engine Oil pressure low. Replace the Gas cap and double check your engine oil level to make sure your not low. Reset the computer and see if the codes return. If your oil level is good when you check it you may have a problem with your oil pump.

CODES P0441 AND P0304 CAME UP ON TEST? WHERE DO I START ON TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE PROBLEM


P0441 = EVAP PURGEFLOW MONITOR that means insufficient or excessive vapor flow detected during evaporative system .
P0304= a misfire in cylinder # 3 answers to these p0441 a bad gas cap possible , and p0304 possible bad coil on cylinder #3, try clearing codes and see if they show back up or you get bad performance , then try replacing gas cap and then coil pack . I really hope this gets you on the right track .

2005 PT Cruiser showing P0456 and P0522. Cranks but wont start.


The sensor that is most likely causeing the problem is the low oil pressure sensor. It is telling the cpu that you have a problem that unless you correct it, the motor will suffer serious damage from insufficient lubrication.Have the oil pressure checked with a manual gauge then replace the sensor unit if faulty.

Codes po171 and po522 on my dash board


P0171 Fuel system lean bank 1, P0522 Engine oil pressure/switch circuit low voltage. Take care of the P0522 get the oil pressure check out first. As for P0171 that can be from a vacuum hose leak from false air.Worn out sparkplugs. To a contaminated MAF(mass air flow sensor).Lean bank is a easy fix but low oil pressure get that look at.

Make sure battery has a full charge. Have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse.

Engine light on PO441, PO344 and PO440 were the codes that came up. 2003 PT cruiser


P0440 and P0441 are refering to the NVLD pump. It is in the rear on the right side up near the fuel tank. P0344 is your cam position sensor on the rear (drivers side) of the cylinder head. The P0440 and 441 are probably why the check engine light is on and the 344 was stored from a previous event. Either way they are two different and unrelated problems. The NVLD (natural vacuum leak detection) pump is an emission item with no effect of the way it runs however it will keep the engine light on. The cam sensor will keep it from starting or intermittently run bad and not necessarily turn the light on. Both parts are easy to change. I hope this helps.
