Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla
The fsm covers all this, but no one reads books today,
too hard i guess.? to read official book by toyota.
it is on line, at alldata.com and is $15 (DIY)
P04xx are not 02 like pam guessed, dead wrong.! sorry !
400s are mostly EGR and EVAP. never 02.
ill now do each, not guessing or speculating, only facts.
a tech, reads how each monitor is tested, (conducted) and
then reads what is expected during this tests.
the light is for smog sure, and 100s of other failures. if you scan the PCM , fully with a REAL scan tool , report all DTC errors not just some. or all answers wilL BE WRONG !
so usa car, just 3 DTC total. got you. covered.
EVAP Control System Large Leak (0.080") Detected
Top cause, fuel cap missing or loose or bad (cracked) or wrong type.
reset codes DTC with scan tool and drive ,got 400s'
if yes, you need to get the gas tank vents stem for air leaks.
called a pressure leak down tests. (ask) its not easy so.......
get it fixed?
EVAP System Incorrect Purge Flow Detected
same answer as 400s
446 (same system (tank fume vents) but more serious.
Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Control Malfunction
full FSM text to follow not BS like others post
Trouble Code Conditions:
When VSV for pressure switching valve is OFF, ECM judges that there is no continuity between vapor pressure sensor vapor pressure sensor and charcoal canister (2 trip detection logic) When VSV for pressure switching valve is OFF, ECM judges that there is no continuity between vapor pressure sensor and fuel tank (2 trip detection logic) After purge cut off operates, pressure in charcoal canister is maintained at atmospheric pressure (2 trip detection logic)
comments. (translated from ASE jargon to english)
vsv is vacuum solenoid valve.
this can mean the a real failure.
buy a new cap , reset DTC's and drive
if it comes back you need the system diagnosed.
there are lots of ways for EVAP to fail.
cap or just a simple leak or more complex.
ill not cover more complex.
you can login to alldata.com and read the whole chapter on EVAP and learn all the tests, and solutions.
at any time.

It's probably the 02 sensor (technically dealing with the exhaust) which will make it fail emissions. I have been told it may also be a dirty mass air flow sensor, which is located in the same housing as the air filter box. I am having the same problems myself, and the car is hesitating and has no power.
