Under the vehicle you should see a metal cover attached to the frame in the rear close to the gas tank remove that cover and you will find the vapor canister shown below and the vent solenoid that attaches to it by hoses wear safety glasses when trying to remove the cover so you don't get rust in your eye's and dirt from the chassis and use liquid wrench or w d 40 and you might need vise grips if the bolts are really rusted out and some new nuts & bolts have fun Amanda and be very careful p0ark the van out of harms way before you climb under it there's to many crazies out there I had some one back into my car while on jack stands when there was at least 15 parking spaces on the block and most of the street on the other side of me was empty I just made it out before the car hit the ground so I mean what I say be very careful where you do this or latch on to a dude or what ever floats your boat and let them do it good luck and be careful

    just in case this might be ibside the front fender but I really think it's in the rear you can't miss it and no smoking around it this brings unused fuel vapors back to the tank and it's the vapors that are highly ignitable/explosive

SOURCE: HAVE A TROUBLESHOOTING MESSAGE PO446

DTC P0446 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent System Performance

The vehicle control module (VCM) monitors the performance of the evaporative emission (EVAP) system by applying a predetermined level of vacuum to the EVAP system and monitors the vacuum decay rate. The VCM sets this diagnostic trouble code (DTC) if the vacuum decay rate is more than a predetermined value. The VCM monitors the amount of vacuum and the amount of pressure in the EVAP system by monitoring the fuel tank pressure sensor. For this DTC, the VCM turns ON both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the Conditions for Running the DTC are met. This applies an engine vacuum to a closed EVAP system. The VCM turns OFF both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the system reaches a correct amount of vacuum. The EVAP system should quickly RELEASE the vacuum in the EVAP system with the EVAP purge valve OFF and the EVAP vent valve OFF (open). This test indicates a blocked or restricted EVAP vent path if the EVAP system fails to release the vacuum quickly enough.

SOURCE: Leak in evap system, where and what is an evap system. 2001 mitsubishi Galant

I have the same failure that occurred when smogging my Ford Ranger. The EVAP test was just added a couple of years ago and it tests for leaks in the gas tank vapor recovery system. What this is a system of vapor recovery lines that connect from the gas tank and goes to a canister then returns to the intake and on the next engine start and gets used, instead of leaking into the air.

The only issue is these lines can develop a leak at any of the connection points or along the rubber portions and can be a pain to replace depending on your application. So until you fix the leak you will fail this test since they pressurize the system and if there is a leak it won't hold the pressure.

SOURCE: po446 evap vent code where is the evap vent

Some might have an ses p0446, evap emissions vent circuit low. If you take it to the dealer they want 300-400.00 to fix the problem. GM has a service bulletin on this condition and have the updated part for 180.00, thats suppose to eliminate this issue.

Basically the problem is, the evap purge vent valve gets clogged with dirt, especially if the truck is used in dirty conditions. Well I figured there had to be a cheaper way to cure this problem.

Here it is:
1) find the location of the vent valve; its under the truck, locate the charcoal canister on the front of the gas tank and trace the vent line to the vent valve.
2) Take the bracket loose with a 5/8 wrench.
3) Spin the valve around so the side with the hole is facing you.
4) Take an air compressor and blow the vent valve out.
5) reinstall and clear the code and it's fixed.

Now I know the updated part from gm is supposed to keep the valve from clogging ever again, but why spend the money when all you have to do is blow out the vent valve every 50k-100kmi and save your $$$!

A lot of fumes come from the vent tube located near the fuel tank inlet. I already changed the fuel tank's cap.


First off are you getting a MIL/ check engine light??
i beleave this van is new enough it should have an EVAP system on it there is a close valve soliniod that should allow those fumes to leak out through the EVAP canister not build up pressure in the tank and leak out the top tube when you open the cap...
I hope this helps if im readin into this wrong please clarify for me and ill repost more info for you. good luck
