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.

I would bring it back to the shop that did the work. If the code is coming out as a problem with the evap system it is not abnormal for the system to take 2 or 3 days for it to read again.

in my experience the usual culprit is the evap cannister. the problem is it gets moisture in it and freezes during winter thus cracking the plastic. if you lay under the car and look at the evap box it black plastic and if you see a loose or cracked hose or the box itself is cracked that is most likely it. as a side note you can check the gas cap and buy a new one to see if that rectifies the situation. lastly i don't think the gas tank should be suspect as you would probably notice if gas was leaking out of the tank. if you take the car to a dealer or shop they can do a smoke test and determine where the leak is.

SOURCE: The troubleshooting code is po440. It says the

A leak in the EVAP system can be a pain to resolve so be methodical. Start with the junction of the tube from the purge valve to the inlet manifold plenum. Disconnect this tube and block off the exposed port on the manifold. A great way for blocking off tubes and ports is to cut off the fingers of a rubber washing up glove and elastic bands to secure them over the exposed ends. First let us recap on the system. The EVAP system passively stores fuel vapour from the fuel tank in a charcoal filled canister. The canister can be located on the fender or bulkhead. When the engine is running above idle speed the ECU opens a purge valve connecting a pipe to the throttle body. A corresponding vent valve allows the ingress of air into the canister and this encourages fuel vapour to be drawn out of the canister through the purge valve to the throttle air intake mixture and thereafter to be burnt. The opening of the purge valve cycles with engine speed. The purge valve should be closed during idle. A faulty EVAP system manifest itself as erratic idling as it allows un-metered air into the system and compromises the inlet manifold vacuum. The blocking of the ports as initially suggested above should at least cause any erratic idling to be resolved. The EVAP system is not critical to engine performance, it is an emission control device, so the car may be run without issue until the fault is found. Look at the fuel cap, ensure that the rubber seal is intact. To make doubly sure give it a smear of grease. Next look at the disconnected 'purge valve to throttle' tube. Inspect it thoroughly for cracks, be quite rough and twist it around to get a good look. Now locate the purge valve. If it is electrically operated simply check for voltage continuity across its connector pins. An open circuit indicates a burnt out solenoid winding. Check the connection to the canister. Check the vent valve connections, and again check its electrical continuity. Check the tank to canister tubing and any connections. If you find no leaks you may need to take it to a garage that can do a smoke test on the system - this highlights the leaks as wisps of smoke appear where the leaks occur.

Hi my evap vent selenoid is un top of the gas tank can i change it place and put it far away from the evap canister thank you...

If the vent is separate from the solenoid yes you can move it. I use heater hose to go between the solenoid and the vent. Just try and mount it somewhere the dust and dirt wont get to it.

Feul will burp mout of the filler cap no mater how slow I fill the car and the service engine soon light is on, how do I change the feul tank filler vent check valve?

Hi, your EVAP vent valve is likely stuck closed. The valve is under the car near the fuel tank. Remove the valve and check to see if it's stuck. You may be able to restore operation by cleaning the valve with carb cleaner. The valve should be open when no voltage is applied. I have pasted instructions below from Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

What is the battery vent hose on the 2000 buick LeSabre for and can the battery be changed without putting the vent hose back on? I put a new battery in and accidentally broke the one side of the hose...

Since the battery is located inside the passenger compartment (under the rear seat), the vent hose is needed to vent the sulfuric acid fumes to the outside of the car - away from the passengers.

Brake problem

hi this is air in the system if you pump them do they go hard as normal? what you will need to do is , starting from the furthest caliper away from the fluid bottle you have to bleed the air out, you can buy bleeding systems for a few bucks/pounds but you can also do it yourself, to do this, find a length of small bore clear hose/pipe, locate the bleed nipple on the caliper, find a wrench/spanner that will fit the bleed nipple, put that on first, then get your pipe/hose, and slide that over the end of the bleed nipple ( make sure the pipe/hose is a nice tight fit ) locate a small clear glass jar partly fill it with brake fluid, put the hose/pipe into the jar so the fluid covers the end ( we don't want air to go up the pipe/hose ) then get a friend to pump hard on the brake pedal till it goes hard, and when it does tell them to keep their foot hard on the pedal , you then undo the bleed nipple ( you should get some fluid come out fast) when the pedal reaches the floor ( this happens immediately if you have opened the nipple far enough, then when it has hit the floor do the bleed nipple up again before they raise the pedal keep doing this till you see no bubbles coming through the hose/pipe, repeat the operation on the next furthest away, and so on till all the air has been removed from the system, be sure to check the fluid in the reservoir regularly as this will cause air to get back into the system again if it runs to low....hope this has helped and good luck, please vote thanks

Hi, please help me understand how to put vent visor around my windows on a 2007 tucson, need to know how far down on the doors do you place them or do you place them even with the top of the door? also how...

My visors are fairly tight to the window, they are about 3/4 of an inch away all the way around, on the outside. I have a natural dip in the door and they fit right in there, but If I didn't, they would still go there. You have to look at them dry and see how they fit, try the 3/4 inch and see how it looks.

Where is the selenoid on a 1992 olds 88, and is it difficult to replace

Hi there,

Not difficult at all,

Two bolts for the starter
Two nuts for the starter wires
Two screws for the solenoid

The actual process is a bit more complicated, but only marginally. I was trying to give you the complexity level you requested

Best regards

I have a 2007 jeep wrangler and it has water in the tank how can i get the vent tube off the fuel tank

Hi John,

Kinda tight up there, no room at all. I wish I could tell you about a magic release tab, unfortunately.........

I'm assuming you already dropped the tank (as far as it will go), managed to get the right side of it down past the exhaust so you could reach up to remove the fuel lines, unplug the top vents and fuel plugs. Now the fun part.

Just getting the clamps loose is a testament to your patience and dexterity. The filler hose isn't too bad to get off one side or the other.
I've handled the vent tube in one of two ways. It depends on how stubborn it is.

Vice grips and patient twisting. Working it off. This can take a while and damage the tube requiring replacement.

Save time. Cut the tube, replace it and save yourself the cramped forearms.

Here's a tip about replacing it. Auto salvage yards where the customer pulls there own parts have to drain all the fluids from the vehicles before allowing them into common areas. Gas tanks are routinely pulled out to accomplish this (it easier when the vehicle is up on a lift). Once drained, they are put in the trunk or rear of the vehicle. Easy access. Cost? Probably a buck or two.

Good luck

The filter is tucked in over the fuel tank. Here's how I replaced mine... I put a jack (for a flat tire) under the fuel tank, so I could control how far it dropped. Then I removed the two screws that hold the fuel tank straps. The screws come out, the fuel tank is loose, lower the tank by lowering the jack. Now it is easy to reach the filter. One screw holds it in place. Unscrew it, it comes right out. The tricky part is figuring out how to unplug the fuel lines. Look at the replacement filter, note how the plastic piece inside each fuel line has to be squeezed to remove it. You need to squeeze the old ones the same way to release them. It isn't easy. Squeeze the plastic piece that is holding the hose in place until you can work it out. A few drops of gas will dribble out. The gas is NOT pressurized. Unsnap the old hoses, snap in the new ones (much easier). Screw the new filter into place. Jack the fuel tank back into place. Screw the straps back on. Clip the ground strap in place where the old one was. You're done.

1995 Nissan Sentra has water leaking inside the passenger floor

My Grandmother has 1995 Sentra and I just fixed this problem for her. She went to 3 places and no one would be bothered with it. Open the hood and you see there are 2 plastic panels where the wipers are. The wipers are on one plastic panel- but you don't have to remove that one, just the one on the passengers side. In order to get that off you need to take off the rubber weather striping that runs the width of the car- this has 8-10 snaps that just pull out with very little effort. Now remove the plastic panel- that kind of pops out & the might be 3 plastic tacks you can pop ou with a flat head screw driver. There is a oblong hole exposed now and if you look into it far to the left and just out of reach is a hole that vents the heat- the seal all around that hole on the outside is dryrotted or the silicone is pealed away. I used a quick dry silicone, squeezed gobs of it on paint stirring stick and reached in there and spread it all arounf the joint. I just kept lobbing it on. The farthest side was hard to reach but i would put it on the stick and just use the vent to scrap it off and let it drop down to the joint. I let it dry 30 minutes. Then, to be sure, I sprayed the stuff on TV that seals gutters and things on the inside of the vent. You could see and inside of the vent there was a small seal. You can also get the plastic coat spray can and you have to turn the can every which way to spray it. I put the hose in the hole (not the vent the air blows out of) and let it run 10 minutes- no water!I also should mention I did this before with the hose and water was pouring in from lust below the glove box
