Question about 1999 Oldsmobile 88
Went in for emission check on '99 olds 88. Engine light was on so had to run diagnostics. Came up with PO 446 evap vent control problem. Was told had to take it to a dealer. Any other ideas or if I could fix? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Your code means:
P0446 EVAP Canister Purge Vent Blocked
Some of the possible causes:
EVAP vent fresh air hose is clogged, kinked or restricted
EVAP Vent solenoid is contaminated, damaged or has failed
FTP sensor is out-of-calibration, damaged or "skewed"
PCM has failed
All tough thing for a lay person to check. You don't have to take it to the dealer, any repair garage that has the proper equipment can fix this for you.
