SOURCE: The vehicle check engine light is on 2002

My friend, raw gas - fuel vapors. Do you know that one gallon of gas will push a 4,000# block of steel about 20 miles?

Please have your Kia dealer investigate and repair this discrepancy for you.

SOURCE: check engine light on

The problem may be with the boost control valve below the battery. Water getting into the electrical connector is a common problem because the valve is mounted low down.

I have two codes come up when checking why my check engine light is on. P0447 and P0420. Any info on what these mean and what it takes to fix so I can pass my smog test??


press the helpful button
Definition of P0420 is catalyst below threshold. This is indicative of (among other things) a converter that is not working as efficiently as it should be (according to specs). Catalytic converters are not normally a "wear" type item, that is they are not deisgned to wear out and need replacement. If they have failed, it is likely due to something else that caused it to fail.

P0447 Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit Open. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) has detected an open within the circuit that controls the vent valve or solenoid for evaporative emission systems vapor.

    Hyundai Tiburon P0447


    You can try disconnecting the battery for a minute then driving about 15-20 miles on the highway while trying to stay at about 55. This will often rebalance the sensors in the emissions system. Note: you must drive the minimum distance required by your ECU, or you'll fail inspection automatically due to lack of adequate feedback from your your OBD.

    What does po440 on a 2003 saturn vue mean with a service engine soon light on


    That is a problem in the evaporative emission control system.
    Could be anything causing it
    Clogged filter in the charcoal canister
    A leak in one of the vacuum lines
    The purge valve not working,,,etc.
    The best thing is to take it and have it checked out, they might have to do a smoke test to find the problem.
    All they do is inject smoke into the system, if there is a leak the smoke will come out of it. All it takes is a pin hole in these emission systems to screw it all up.

    I checked the codes and one comes up its po446. i dont under stand what it mean so i cant fix it to get the light to go out.


    P0446 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit.
    The following are descriptions of all Evaporative possible codes:

    P0441 Evaporative Emission System Incorrect Purge Flow
    P0442 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)
    P0443 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit
    P0444 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Open
    P0445 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Shorted
    P0446 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit
    P0447 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit Open
    P0448 Evaporative Emission System Vent Control Circuit Shorted
    P0449 Evaporative Emission System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit
    P0450 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch
    P0451 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch Range/Performance
    P0452 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch Low
    P0453 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch High
    P0454 Evaporative Emission System Pressure Sensor/Switch Intermittent
    P0455 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (large leak)
    P0456 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (very small leak)
    P0457 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (fuel cap loose/off)
    P0458 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Low
    P0459 Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit High
    ---
    At least the cap isn't loose for the gas tank.

    I would clear the code with an OBD-II Scanner 'erase code' button, and see how long it takes for it to come back.
