Question about 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio
Trouble code PO 440
do the easiest cause first... did you recently get gasoline and didn't put the fuel cap back on correctly?
CLEAR the trouble code and re-seat the gas cap properly & then see if the check engine lights up with the same code... then go from there
i've embedded gbob59s link because it should have worked the first time
