A code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:

  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • 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

I am getting a po442 code on my scan tool. A small evap. leak detected. I have replaced the gas cap a couple of years ago. I put the lite out and it stays off for about a year then comes back on. Anybody...

This is what they call a 2 trip code. It takes two running times to set. Small leak is 98 % of the time gas cap not on tight enough. Three clicks minimum. Just reset the computer and see if it comes up again. For your year EVAP is not a big deal. Doesn't hurt fuel economy or performance.

My 2000 chevy malibu is reading p0302 p0241 and p0442

PO302 misfire # 2 cyclinder, PO241,boost pressure circuit low, PO442 evap has small leak, The misfire is the code you need to verify first, if you want to fix it yourself your best bet is to replace the sparkplug and inspect the soil boot for and burn through marks(whitish)then take the #2 COP and swap it with another COP and see if the misfire moves if the misfire moves replace the COP,as for the PO442 tighten or replace the gas cap

2 po442 codes showing up on my 2003 buick century

If there was a leak at the gas cap. EG: Left off or loose after fill up? You will need to have the codes cleared or it will clear itself after enough key cycles. EG: Started and shut back off as many as 20 to 50 or more times.

Diagnostic code PO442

PO442 is an Evaporation Emission leak. It's probably a loose gas cap. The fix would be $96.00 at our dealership, since your truck is out of warranty. You may be able to get it fixed cheaper, but you'll be charged a diagnostic fee.
