Hi,

For P0420 and P0430 ,This means there is a issue with the catalytic converter and O2 sensor being no longer efficient. You are going to have to get them tested. Until then you will start seeing worse gas mileage and the car is going to not have as much power the longer you wait the worse it will be. You can get this done at any VW dealer. They have to hook up a scan tool and monitor the system. There are a few outcomes and its very costly to just start replacing parts. Its either bad wiring, O2 sensor is bad, Cat is bad, also could be a bad ECM the shop will be able to pinpoint the issue and know the exact item costing you less in the long run. Once you find out dont be obligated to spend full price there you can always have a local shop do it for less or do it yourself and order the parts online

For P0441, You won't notice a decrease in MPG, this system is the charcoal canister system that absorbes fuel vapor from the fuel tank so when you open the cap you don't vent fuel vapors into the atmosphere. The code is saying for some reason when the car triggers the valve that opens allowing these vapors to be drawn into the intake, it isn't seeing an increase in airflow. Most likely the purge valve has failed. It's a little valve with an electrical connector and two rubber hoses running to it on top of the air filter box. You can disconnect the hoses and check to see if there's charcoal contamination in the valve by tapping it on white paper.

Also you can check your vacuum lines to the valves on the back of the cylinder heads (they have the large plastic hoses running to them).

It is safe to turn off the code but the light will return. VWs don't throw phantom codes.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi! Please check the spark plugs for carbon deposits for it may cause poor fuel burning thats why it stalls. I suspect the MAF (mass air flow) sensor too for it may be faulty. The MAF has big contribution on engine performance specially on the idling. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    How bout the injectors? Are they good? You may need to clean it for if its clogged it can be the cause of stalling too.

    You are running rich and you may have a faulty catalytic converter too.

Rx300 lexus , getting check engine light and vsc indicators on. autozone ran codes po441,po442,po446,po420.all are evap emissions sys except po420- catalyst sys. efficiency below threshold (bank 1).


bank 1 is driver side cat sensor. if one sensor goes it can get false readings on others. it could just be a seal on one of the connectors, but to find the faulty sensor is seals are fine. you need to find out the resistance on the sencore the live the negative and the signal wire are and use a meter with the engine running connect the meter to the wires with paper clips in the back of the plug with it connected it needs to be on the signal and the negative, the resistance should go up and down in resistance with engine output rev engine slowly if it moves smooth then its fine, if its not then its that sensor at fault. you can do this if you have a code reader and remove sensors one at a time till you only get one code left then the one you removed is the sensor at fault.
