No it won't. you'll need to reset the code. reset the computer by disconnecting your positive cable from the battery for 5mins.the check engine light should go off @ not come back on, unless you have another problem. hope this helps!! if so please vote.

Not sure on this vechile. Some will if it's a simple problem like a gas cap, but others will need to be reset. So whoever told you the code might need to erase it from the system.

Hi, I know from my past experiances the spark plug wires at the boot ends than slide onto the sparkplugs usually over time short out due to the metal tubes that protect the sparkplugs from heat kind of ark across from the metal tube through the plug boot causing an error code. Sometimes in the dark you can actually see them arking at the tube on the engine, and also hear a crackling noise. As to the code for the O2 sensor that's a normal wear and tear item that may need replaced. As all vehicle age over time electrical connections, and things have issues develop and cause havick with sensors and computers in these vehicles too.


As with the 441 code and then the other code for the O2 sensor showing up may mean both O2 sensors are going bad if your system has 2 sensors in the exhaust, usually one before the cat converter and one behind it. A lot of this also is due to what gasoline you use in the vehicle over time. Lower octane gas may be what is causing things to act up.

Hello! Those three codes commonly indicate the followi possibilities:

The gas cap was not sufficiently tightenend ater fueling, a bad gas-cap rubber o-ring, the vehicle had the key in the 'on', or engine running, or the tank was filed all of the way up the neck.

Any one of the abope causes will set all three codes.

you have to understand that there is a leak in the system other than the gas cap for the evaporative system. The system needs to be professionally closed, and smoke introduced into to find the leak, and a through component check, eg.. purge valve vapor canister vent solenoid all functioning correctly
