Runs fine for about 20 minutes a huge cloud of white smoke out of the tail pipe less power and an ubnormal idle with the check engine,oil light on just for sort time but, in minutes back to normal.

More then likely a blowen seal on head. Take to dealer and have it checked if you catch it befor it go's completely out it shoulden cost as much to fix. But it is going to cost . good luck

What to buy for code p0444 for hyundai tiburon gt 2.7

Felix: Code p0444 indicates a LARGE leak, which often indicates a loose gas cap. It could also be the wrong kind of gas cap. Since they are cheap, this is where I would start.
According to : On vehicles equipped with Evaporative emission control systems also known as EVAP, the engine draws in excessive fuel vapors from the gas tank that would otherwise be vented into the atmosphere.
The fuel vapor is routed through a vacuum line to the engine's intake and the purge valve/solenoid meters the desired amount of fuel vapors, controlled by the vehicles powertrain control module (PCM) or engine control module (ECM). The PCM/ECM monitors the voltage to the purge control valve and has detected no voltage change with the purge valve commanded on.
Note: This code is similar to codes P0443 and P0445.
Symptoms Symptoms of a P0444 trouble code may include:
  • Check engine light on (Malfunction indicator lamp illuminated)
  • Slightly diminished fuel economy, this will not affect engine performance
Potential Causes Causes of this DTC may include:
  • Wiring harness loose or disconnected
  • Engine wiring harness open circuit
  • Purge control solenoid open circuit
  • PCM/ECM malfunction
Diagnostic Steps for P0444 DTC Engine wiring harness - Check all connectors to ensure they are plugged in properly, look for loose or damaged wires. Typically the purge control valve is energized by the the battery and triggered on and off with a duty cycle through the PCM/ECM. Using the manufacturers wiring diagrams, identify which type of circuit being used and check for battery voltage presence with the key on/engine off at the power side of the control solenoid connector using a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM) set to the volts scale. If no battery voltage is present, trace the wiring back and determine the cause for voltage loss.
Test for continuity of the control side of the wire harness after disconnecting the plug from the control valve solenoid and the PCM wiring harness. Identify the correct wire at the PCM and control valve harness and check for continuity using the ohms scale on the DVOM, if excessive resistance is found, repair the circuit. If there is no continuity on the circuit, check all connections for damaged wiring, loose pins or disconnected harnesses and repair the circuit.
Purge control solenoid - Check for continuity at the purge control solenoid connector pins after removing the harness plug using the DVOM set to the ohms scale. Verify resistance is within manufacturers specifications. If no continuity is present, suspect the solenoid is internally open and replace the part with a known good unit.
PCM/ECM malfunction - Since the EVAP is only turned on during certain driving conditions, it will be necessary to monitor the EVAP control operation using an advanced scan tool capable and performing a road test under the driving conditions required to activate the EVAP system. Some advanced scan tools have an internal test to activate the EVAP system manually. Verify the PCM/ECM is commanding the EVAP system on. If the system is functioning correctly, it will be necessary to back probe the PCM/ECM wiring harness connector using a graphing multimeter or oscilloscope with a duty cycle feature with the positive lead on the purge control valve pin and the negative lead connected to a known good ground. The duty cycle should match what is commanded on by the PCM/ECM during EVAP operation. If there is no duty cycle present, the PCM/ECM may be at fault.This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a generic OBD-II powertrain code. It is considered generic because it applies to all makes and models of vehicles (1996-newer), although specific repair steps may vary depending on the model.a evaporative malfunction . purge valve and gas cap.

Where is the evap vent solenoid fuse located on 2005 nissan altima

It doesn't have a "fuse" specific to the purge valve solenoid. What he is telling you is that you need to have this circuit troubleshot. Either the PCM the wiring going to the purge valve solenoid, or the purge valve solenoid itself is malfunctioning.

This requires a scanner, a digital volt ohm meter and some knowledge of when the purge valve actuates and under what conditions.

The car must be running and operating at cruising speed before the PCM sends a command to the purge valve to operate. Some scanners have the ability to send a request to the PCM to actuate the purge valve, but that scanner is usually a dealer's or equivalent.

Code P0604 and P0444 came on in my wife's bmw 530i

P0444, Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Open". I believe this (small) valve is located underneath the intake manifold behind the oil filter housing. Since there are other codes that indicate leaks in the evap system, you might have to replace the PCV, P0604 could be the coolant level, or a stuck thermostat, top up the coolant, or replace thermostat would be advisable.
hope tis helps

Trying to locate canister purge valve solenoid on vehicle

There is a canister purge valve & a volume control purge valve on your truck. The canister purge valve is on the evap. canister itself(at the rear of veh. near the fuel tank. The volume control purge valve is located in the eng. compartment, passenger side behind Battery. You didn't mention if it's a 4 or 6 cyl.

Code p0443

Fault Code:- P0443 Indicates a Power-train fault

The fault is generally due to a problem in the Emission Control area

Fault Description: EVAP canister purge valve circuit malfunction

Action of ECM:- ECM Default: - Canister purge inhibited - Adaptive fuel metering inhibited

After clearing the DTC, complete the Purge system monitor drivecycle
Check for a reoccurrence of fault DTC.

Possible Fault:- EVAP Canister purge valve to ECM drive circuit: open circuit, short circuit, high resistance EVAP Canister purge valve power supply circuit: open circuit, short circuit EVAP Canister purge valve operating vacuum hose leak / restriction EVAP Canister purge valve failure

Fault code p0444

Check the following conditions:
  • Absent or tampered fuel cap.
  • Absent or tampered O-rings at fuel vapor and EVAP purge line canister fittings.
  • Cracked or punctured EVAP canister.
  • Damaged source vacuum line, EVAP purge line, EVAP vent hose or fuel tank vapor line.
  • Poor connection at the ECM. Inspect the harness connectors for the following conditions.
  • Backed-out terminals.
  • Improper mating.
  • Broken locks.
  • Improperly formed.
  • Damaged terminals.
  • Poor terminal-to-wire connection.
  • Damaged harness. Examine a) the wiring harness to the EVAP vent solenoid, b) EVAP canister purge valve and c) the fuel tank pressure sensor to ensure whether an intermittent open or short circuit prevails.
  • Kinked, pinched or plugged vacuum source, EVAP purge, or fuel tank vapor line. Ensure that the lines are not restricted
