SOURCE: oil change

Hi
see my previous post "oil filters" which basically the same as this
there is a special tool for removing the oil filter "plastic cover " - (a 14 flute 76mm cap type) & this is a "must have " or the cover can be damaged 17mm spanner/socket, 6 mm allen key for the drain in filter housing along with the new filter cartrdge you should also get the 2 "o" rings as well. there is website that Robert Aitchision hs put up which gives a complete description of how to do it with pics & what is needed.
Thanks Robert

It will not go off by itself,you will need to reset it by connecting to a diagnostic tool.Once cleared if there is any other problem then it will trigger the check engine light again.Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Evaporative Emission System codes

check ur gas cap for tight and proper seal that is the most common problem for the the evap codes if cap is good check fuel and vent lines for damage or leaks from gas cap under vehicle up to engine compartment

Evap control system leak detected


The code is for a small leak which could be just about anything in the system. A leaking gas cap, broken vent line from the tank to the vapor canister, leaking valve, etc.
The computer pressurizes the gas tank venting system every few minutes to check for leaks.

My 2004 Mazda 3 GT 2.3L is getting a P0446 DTC and is burning through a tank of gas in about 2-3 days depending on the amount of driving being done. My Mazda dealer believes that it may be the fuel pump,...


P0446- Evaporative Emissions Control System Vent Control Circuit Malfunction

Possible Causes:
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

Code is detected when VSV for pressure switching valve is ON, ECM judges that there is no continuity between vapor pressure sensor, fuel tank and charcoal canister (2 trip detection logic)

The vapor pressure sensor, Voltage Solenoide Valve (VSV) for EVAP, Voltage Solenoide Valve (VSV) for canister closed valve (CCV) and Valve Solenoide Valve (VSV) for pressure switching valve are used to detect abnormalities in the evaporative emission control system.

The ECM decides whether there is an abnormality in the evaporative emission control system based on the vapor pressure sensor signal.

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0446 is recorded by the ECM when there is a malfunction in either the VSV for EVAP, the VSV for pressure switching valve, or in the vapor pressure sensor itself, or when evaporative emissions leak from the components within the dotted line in Fig. 1 below.
evaporative_evap_system_toyota.gif
The ECM closes the CCV and opens the VSV for pressure switching valve causing vacuum to increase in the entire EVAP system.

The ECM continues to operate the VSV for EVAP until the vacuum is increased to a specified point at which time the ECM closes the VSV for EVAP.

If the vacuum did not increase, or if the vacuum increased beyond the specified limit, the ECM judges the VSV for EVAP and related components to be faulty.

Check engine light ...code came up p0455 i have a 06 mazda 3 2.3


This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. 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.

Symptoms: You likely won't notice any drivability problems.

Causes: A code p0455 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)
* Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

Possible Solutions: With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
* Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
* Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
* Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary


Hope this helps (remember to rate thsi answer).

I have a 03 dodge ram 1500 and got the codes p0440 and p0441. changed gas cap. where are all the parts located


P0441 - Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow The "EVAP purge flow" faults are issues between the carbon cannister and the intake. The EVAP leak detection generally concerns the fuel tank to carbon cannister plumbing. A little background. The EVAP or evaporative emission system is a control system to keep vapors from evaporation in the fuel tank from getting into the atmosphere. The fuel tank is not vented, but rather the vapors are piped to the carbon cannister (usually located behind the pass. side front wheel) where the charcoal element absorbs the vapor. This is actually a vapor "storage" device. Under certain engine operating conditions, the ECU activates the Cannister Purge Valve (N80) which opens and allows the engine vacuum to **** the fuel vapors back out of the carbon cannister. This purges the vapor, allowing the cannister to absorb more vapor. This evap system has been on vehicles since the '70s. As part of the OBDII standard effective for 1996 cars and newer, it was mandated that leaks in the systems must be detected and reported as a fault which will set the Check Engine Light (CEL). To detect leaks, the system is pressurized by a pump so that leaks can be detected by a lack of appropriate pressure in the system. If there is a leak, such as a cracked vent hose, loose (or leaky) gas cap, poorly installed or defective O-rings on the fuel level senders on the fuel tank, etc. a code will be set. On the cannister to intake side, leaks are detected by deviations in the idle control system. If you have leaks in the lines from the carbon cannister to the intake, intake leaks, a defective purge valve, etc you will often get purge flow faults. My first recommendation is to closely inspect all the small vacuum lines connected to the intake manifold. The corrugated plastic lines are often the culprits, as well as the fabricate covered vacuum lines. Also consider replacing the gas cap.

CEL on contant, tried gas cap, runs fine


There are many issues that can cause the light to be illuminated that do not affect engine performance such as canister vent valve/solenoid, leaking vapor hoses, fuel cap with bad seal or check valve and so on. You will need to retrieve the code(s) in order to know where to begin. You can go to autozone to have them do it, or take it to a repair facility and have them do a diagnostic check. The latter is a better choice. Once you have the code you can begin a diagnostic check of the affected system.
