P0441 is Evap Emission Incorrect Purge Flow; the repair you are describing is easy, and should correct the P0441 restricition...I would anticipate no large problems.

SOURCE: need a charcoal canister according to dealer - how

This is a simple fix. Any junk yard will have what your looking for and the canister slides in and out with only a couple of bolts. I think its a 10mm or 12mm socket/wrench and there should be a metal band around a black canister. Remove the band and the hoses with a screw driver and a pair of pliers. If you need mark the hoses with some thing that you will remember the placement ie. tape. Once you have the old canister out reverse the steps and put back together. Once it is back together turn your key to the on position and wait 1min. then start.
P.S. When you get the canister from the junk yard make sure the canister doesn't have any cracks or holes in it.

Gas leaking from charcoal canister after i changed fuel filter, pump, clean egr change egr solenoid. ????

The canister got loaded for a reason, what that may be is hard to track down, let it dry out and see if it happens again. This can be caused by over filling the fuel tank i.e. topping off.

MY 2007 accent has a hard time starting only when I put gas in

Your Accent has an Evaporative Emissions System which incorporates a valve, called the purge control solenoid valve (PCSV). If/when it sticks open, it will continually/continuously apply a vacuum to the charcoal canister, creating a 'RICH' mixture condition after re-fueling. The charcoal canister absorbs fuel vapors during refueling. The PCSV operates to vaccum/**** those absorbed vapors from the charcoal canister to the engine intake to burn them. This is most likely the cause of what you describe. Go to and register your vehicle by VIN #..
you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals,
service bulletins, illustrations, etc.

2004 Hyundai Sonatai V6 hard to start after refueling...and stalls before it finally operates properly...Car has 100K milkes

You describe a purge control solenoid valve which has stuck "OPEN" (meaning it is continually applying a vacuum to the charcoal canister). When this happens, the engine computer cannot modulate the 'purge flow' from the charcoal canister. It is 'sucking' fumes continuously from the canister after refueling & is flooding the engine (excessive 'RICH' fuel condition).

Replace the PCSV (purge control solenoid valve).
