I have DTC Codes; P0441, P0442, and P0446 EVAP codes. Have had too many things replaced to name and still have codes. Originally, only had one code P0442, after the unsuccessful removal of severalevap

code p 0442 refers to evaporative emission(EVAP) system---small leak detected====causes--hose connections--intake leak--EVAP canister--EVAP canister purge valve
it also refers to --large leak detected====causes fuel cap loose, off---mechanical fault--hose connections---EVAP pressure sensor
code p 0441 refers to EVAP system--incorrect flow detected====causes hoses, intake leak-- EVAP canister purge valve
code p 0446 refers to EVAP system, vent control---circuit malfunction===causes--wiring---EVAP canister purge valve----ECM
if you can remember when the problem started ( after refueling) it may be that the cap is not fitted correctly
it could that in the fixing process , the wiring has not been correctly installed or the problem is the canister purge valve needs attention

you might connect the fuel vapor line and fuel return line back ward

so so fuel goes to vapor canister ,instead going back to fuel tank

if that is the case ,you need to buy new canister too since it saturated now

P0441: Evaporative Emission Control System - Incorrect Purge Flow

This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses.

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.

Possible causes:

  • 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

Possible solutions:

  • Replace Leak Detection Pump / LDP (if applicable to your vehicle)
  • 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
  • Repair resistance in purge connector

  • Check ALL the above until you correct the issue. NEVER replace PCM, unless you prove the PCM to be faulty (as a last resort).

    On my 2001 rodeo the check engine lite came on and the only code that came up is po440, can you tell me what this is

    This alarm concerns the function of the EVAP SYSTEM. This system monitors vacuum correctness. If a sufficient vacuum level cannot be achieved, a large leak or a faulty EVAP canister purge solenoid is indicated. It can be caused for the following reasons:
    1) Disconnected or faulty fuel tank pressure sensor
    2) Missing or faulty fuel cap
    3) Disconnected, damaged, pinched, or blocked EVAP purge line.
    4) Disconnected or damaged EVAP vent hose.
    5) Disconnected, damaged, pinched, or blocked fuel tank vapor line.
    6) Disconnected or faulty EVAP canister purge solenoid.
    7) Disconnected or faulty EVAP canister vent solenoid.
    8) Damaged EVAP canister.
    9) Leaking fuel sender O-ring.
    10) Leaking fuel tank or fuel filler neck.

    How do i fix a 0446 code on a 2000 nissan frontier. ext cab 4x4 3.3l vs manual trans

    The evaporative emission control system checks to make sure there are no leaks in the lines that run from the gas tank to the charcoal canister and up to the engine. It also checks to make sure the gas cap is sealing correctly.
    When you fill your car with gas, the vapors in the tank get forced into a canister filled with activated charcoal. Also, on a hot day as the gas heats up and vaporizes, those same vapors push into the canister where they're stored. But the charcoal can only hold so much vapor. At some point it has to be emptied. The emptying process is called "canister purge." Here's how it works.
    The computer orders a canister purge by powering open a purge solenoid. That opens the vacuum line between the canister and the intake manifold. At the same time, it opens a VENT solenoid. That allows fresh air into the canister. So the engine is literally sucking out the gas vapors and purging the canister with fresh air. The computer has to adapt its fuel strategy to take advantage of all the extra gas vapors coming into the engine.
    The computer notices the canister is empty when it detects a leaner condition (all the vapors are used up) and it resumes normal fuel delivery. Some car manufacturers then close the VENT solenoid but leave the PURGE solenoid open. That creates a vacuum throughout the entire fuel storage system. Once the correct vacuum is reached, it closed the PURGE solenoid and waits to see if the vacuum holds. If it doesn, the system passes the test. If it detects a leak, it sets a code.
    The computer also watches the electrical activity during the testing process. When the computer operates the solenoids, it sees a voltage drop on the line. If it doesn't see a voltage drop, it knows there's a problem with the electrical--either the wiring is broken, or the solenoid isn't working. In this partcular code P0446, the computer has detected an electrical problem with the VENT solenoid.

    I have a 1991 niss 300zx non-turbo and it smells like gas when im driving

    You may have either a gas leak or the evaporative canister on the emission control system is saturated. The canister cannot be dried out and must be replaced. This is part of the system to reduce toxic emissions and although may not be important, it is part of the road rules to maintain. You can purchase a replacement canister and fit it yourself. If this is a leak, then the only way to trace it is to run the car until hot with the bonnet up or clamp off the pressure regulator and run the fuel pump whilst examining the fuel lines for signs of wetness and gas smell.

    The evaporative emissions system prevents hydrocarbon (HC) vapors from the fuel tank from escaping into the atmosphere where they could form photochemical smog. Gasoline vapors are collected in the charcoal canister. The Canister Closing Valve (CCV) closes off the air inlet into the canister for leak detection of the evaporative emission system. The CCV also prevents fuel vapors from escaping from the canister. When the engine purges the HC vapors from the canister, the clean air comes into the canister through the canister air-filter and the CCV.

    1. Ignition "OFF". 2. Disconnect CCV connector. 3. Measure resistance between terminals 1 and 2 of the CCV connector(Component side). Specification : Approx. 23~26Ω at 20°C(68°F)
    4. Is resistance within the specification? YES ▶ Go to next step as below. NO ▶ Check CCV for contamination, deterioration, or damage. Substitute with a known-good CCV and check for proper operation. If the problem is corrected, replace CCV and then go to "Verification of Vehicle Repair" procedure.Terminal and Connector Inspection

    Many malfunctions in the electrical system are caused by poor harness(es) and terminals. Faults can also be caused by interference from other electrical systems, and mechanical or chemical damage.
    Thoroughly check connectors for looseness, poor connection, bending, corrosion, contamination, deterioration, or damage.

    My taurus failed due to code p0442 ecap emiss ctl sys leak detected (small leak)

      Continuous Memory Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0442 indicates that a fuel vapor leak has been detected [as small as 0.10 cm (0.04 inch)] in the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) system.
      Note: Prior to performing the following diagnosis inspect the Canister Vent Solenoid (CV) for contamination. A situation may exist where contamination holds open the Canister Vent (CV) solenoid enough to set DTC P0442 and also plugs the port to atmosphere enough to keep system from being vented quickly.
      • After market parts and accessories nonconforming to the EVAP system specifications.
      • Damaged, cross threaded or loosely installed fuel filler cap.
      • Small holes or cuts in fuel vapor hoses/tubes (EVAP canister tube, EVAP canister outlet tube or EVAP return tube) in the EVAP system.
      • Loose fuel vapor hose/tube connections to EVAP system components.
      • EVAP system component [EVAP canister purge valve, fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor, canister vent (CV) solenoid, fuel vapor control valve tube assembly or fuel vapor vent valve assembly] seals leaking.
      • CV solenoid partially open when commanded closed.
      • EVAP canister leaking.
    • Check for presence of fuel filler cap.
    • Verify that the CV solenoid is properly seated on the EVAP canister (if possible).
    • Visually inspect for cut or loose connections to fuel vapor hoses/tubes in following locations:
      • EVAP canister to EVAP canister purge valve.
      • EVAP canister to fuel vapor vent valve assembly.
      • fuel vapor control valve tube assembly to fuel tank (if applicable).
