SOURCE: Car died while driving down the highway

Needs tuning. Also replace fuel and air filters. If that doesn't help then it may need piston ring replacement.

SOURCE: Mitsubshi occasionally will not start

When you say won't start... will it not turn over or will it turn over but not start. If it is cranking but no start I'd say the ECU is beginning to fail (very common in early 90's Mitsubishi's) If need be there is a way you can check the ECU for codes with a standard analog multimeter. Please let me know.

Thanks,
Tom

I have a 2002 kia spectra throwing a P0442 code. Also when trying to pump gas into tank I must hold lever to pump extremely slow or the gas pump clicks off. Takes forever! Any ideas?


According to my book. the 0442 code means you have a small leak in your Evaporative Emission Control system. As to the fuel fill issue. Some cars have an anti-siphon screen further up the fill spout than others. Also, for some reason some stations feel they have to have their pumps double as fire hoses. Repair or diagnosis of the Evaporative Emission Control system is one of those things that shouldn't be attempted by the do-it-yourself mechanic.

04 grand cherokee, have replace all 4 oxigen sensors, replace gas cap and now is showing a 0442 code.


code p0442 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) system--small leak detected.===causes---hose connections --intake leak---EVAP canister--EVAP purge valve
It also refers to large leak detected (fuel cap loose /off)===causes --mechanical fault---hose connections--EVAP pressure sensor.
No--- you do not need to drive it more Just need to fix the faulty unit.

Code P 0442 on do ram trucdege 2002


This indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

A code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
A loose or improperly affixed gas cap (most likely)
•A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
•A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
•Other small leak in EVAP system
•Faulty vent O-ring seal
