air you meaning the air flow solenoid ? as this is in the engine bay... its just a pipe from the tank to the engine bay. sits under the window on the pass side behind the cover then the pipe feeds out to the side with a filter on the end.
Not sure about this specific car... but most have an idle solenoid, a small elecrtric motor that has a rod that slides in and out pushing against the throttle, the mechanism that controls engine speed. When you gas pedal is pushed you can see the throttle moving in the engine compartment. Sometimes the problem is the solenoid itself, or sensors that feed the computer faulty info about how to maintain the idle. D you have a check engine light on? If so, some auto stores can determine what the problem is by using a device that asks the car computer what part triggered the check engine light. Please rate answer.
Its quite likely that the solenoid that holds the flap shut has jammed. Its a fairly common problem (The same type of solenoid also operates the locking mechanism on the tailgate). It shouldnt be too difficult to access it from within the boot by stripping back some of the carpet/plastic trim in the boot area near fuel filler flap. Its a white plastic component with a wiring plug. if you lightly force it back it will probably unjam and start working prperly again (but for how long???). They are not too dear to buy and also fairly easy to replace.
If it isnt jammed, check the plug for a live and earth feed while somone operates the release button. good live + earth = faulty solenoid
This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer functioning correctly.
FIRST, call the local Toyota dealer, tell them the error and your mileage. It MAY be covered under warranty as part of the emissions system, which many manufacturers have extended warranty programs on at no cost to you.
A code P0441 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
Bad vacuum switch
Broken or damaged EVAP line or canister
Open in PCM purge command circuit
Open or short in Voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
Faulty purge solenoid
Restriction in EVAP solenoid, line or canister
Corrosion or resistance in purge connector
With a P0441 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
Repair damaged EVAP lines or canister
Repair open or short in voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
Repair open in PCM purge command circuit
Replace purge Solenoid
Replace vacuum switch
Repair restriction in Evap line or canister or soleniod
This is most likely a faulty ignition switch, when you release the key and it cuts the engine this is a lost live feed to the coil if petrol or stop soenoid if diesel
check ignion switch for a live feed to the coil/stop solenoid when cranking
Check you are getting a live feed to the starter solenoid (small wire on the starter) If you are, you need to strip the starter off it and find a replacement.
It is probably the starter solenoid - (which is non-repairable) that has stuck.
As a test, try hitting the starter motor with a length of wood. If it then works, then look for a replacement as it WILL do this again , and again untill replaced.
If you are not getting a live feed to the starter, or this doesn't work - please contact me again for further assistance.
If this results in a solution for you. Please take the time to rate as a Fixya.
