If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain off. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go

If the cap was tight. It could be a different leak. Drive a few days. If the light doesnt go out, a Garage will need to check it for you, there may be more to it, like an evaporative leak.

Try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour an then reconnect and drive for 10 miles. It may run rough for this period. This will clear codes from memory.

P0440 code on 2002 PontiacGrandPrix


There could be a few things wrong, this is a problem in the evap system, the evap system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicles fuel system, try taking your gas cap off and putting it back on, reset the code and drive the car for a few days, it's not uncommon for the gas cap to give off this code. if the code comes back after a few days of driving then the problem go'es a little deeper than the gas cap, it could be a bad purge solenoid, or a plugged carbon canister, among other things, also look for damaged or disconnected hoses around the purge sloenoid, you might have to check for leaks in the hoses in the evap system, i hope this helps you find the problem, good luck.

I have a 2002 grand am and less than a year ago had to replace cadalitic converter. The check engine light would come on once in awhile, and the car will start to bogg down. It started out as intermitent then eventually all the time. The smell may be the heating up of the converter.
