PO440 on 1999 Pontiac Montana. Is it the purge solenoid valve? And how can I get to the purge valve to replace it?


It sits on a bracket. In the center of the bracket use a small screw driver to bend the center piece out away from the valve. Then work the valve off of it. Pull it up to see it. Unplug it and remove the purge lines.

2007. What are the probable causes of DTC P0446?


DTC P0446: Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Vent System Performance
Circuit/System Description
This DTC tests the evaporative emission (EVAP) system for a restricted or blocked EVAP vent path. The control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve Open and the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve Closed. This allows vacuum to be applied to the EVAP system. Once a calibrated vacuum level has been reached, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve Closed and the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve Open. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor for a decrease in vacuum. If the vacuum does not decrease to near 0 inch H2O in a calibrated time, this DTC sets.
Diagnostic Aids
?€¢
An intermittent condition could be caused by a damaged EVAP vent housing, a temporary blockage at the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve inlet, or a pinched vent hose. A blockage in the vent system will also cause a poor fuel fill problem.


?€¢
An EVAP canister, vent hose, or vent solenoid valve that has restricted flow may cause this DTC to set. Using a purge solenoid command with a scan tool will allow vacuum to be applied to the system instead of pressure. With the engine running, the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve open, and the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve commanded to 100 percent, the fuel tank vacuum should not increase to more than 5 inches H2O.


?€¢
An EVAP canister filter that is restricted can cause this DTC to set. Refer to Evaporative Emission Canister Replacement .


?€¢
Disconnecting one component at a time while the EVAP system is under flow will help to pinpoint a restriction in the system


Do you have a scan tool that reads data PID'S ?
Your FTP - fuel tank pressure sensor could be at fault !

    Ignition ON and fuel cap removed, verify that the FTP sensor parameter is between 1.3-1.7 volts. ?‡'
    If not within the specified range, go to the FTP sensor section in Circuit/System Testing.

  1. Install the fuel cap.
  2. With the engine running, the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve open, and the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve commanded to 100 percent, the fuel tank vacuum should not increase to more than 12 inches H2O.
?‡'
If the fuel tank vacuum is greater than the specified range, go to the restriction section in Circuit/System Testing.

How do I resolve diagnostic code P0455 on my 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe?


Here is the definition and possible causes.

Possible causes - Missing or loose fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
- EVAP system hose leaking
- Fuel tank leaking
P0455 CHEVROLET Description This diagnosis detects leaks in the Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) purge line using engine intake manifold vacuum. If pressure does not increase, the Engine Control Module (ECM) will check for leaks in the line between the fuel tank and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve under the following vacuum test condition.


The vacuum cut valve bypass valve is opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP canister vent control valve will then be closed to shut the EVAP purge line off. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is opened to depressurize the EVAP purge line using intake manifold vacuum. After this depressurization is implemented, the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve will be closed.

P0442 - Evaporative Emissions System Leak Detected (Small Leak)

P0455 - Evaporative Emissions System Leak Detected (Gross Leak)

This diagnosis detects leaks in the EVAP purge line using engine intake manifold vacuum. If pressure does not increase, the ECM will check for leaks in the line between the fuel tank and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve under the following vacuum test condition. The vacuum cut valve bypass valve is opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP canister vent control valve will then be closed to shut the EVAP purge line off. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is opened to depressurize the EVAP purge line using intake manifold vacuum. After this depressurization is implemented, the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve will be closed.

Causes:
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve
- Leak is in line between intake manifold

Solutions:
- Re-tighten or replace fuel tank filler cap
- Replace damaged or leaking EVAP canister
- Replace damaged or leaking lines.

Ford escort wagon 1997 code p1443 displayed. what does this indicate & where is the cannister? thank you.


P1443 - EVAP Control System / Vacuum System Purge Control Solenoid Or Purge Control Valve Fault. A fuel tank pressure change greater than minus (-) 7 inches of water in 30 seconds occurred with a purge (fuel vapor) flow at less than 0.02 pounds per minute.

Possible Causes:
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the FTP sensor.
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the engine intake manifold.
  • Blocked vacuum hose between the EVAP canister purge valve solenoid and the engine intake manifold.
  • EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed (mechanically).

  • Possible Solution:
    Check for blockages between the fuel tank, the EVAP canister purge valve, and the engine intake manifold. Check for obstructions in the EVAP canister purge valve diaphragm and ports.

    The canister is on the passengers side near the firewall if I recall correctly.

    EVAP System Vent Circuit Malfunction

    This diagnosis detects leaks in the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) purge line using of vapor pressure in the fuel tank. The EVAP canister vent control valve is closed to shut the EVAP purge line. The vacuum cut valve bypass valve will then be opened to clear the line between the fuel tank and the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. The EVAP control system pressure sensor can now monitor the pressure inside the fuel tank. If pressure increases, the Engine Control Module (ECM) will check for leaks in the line between the vacuum cut valve and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve.

    Possible causes
    - Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve
    - Incorrect fuel filler cap used
    - Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
    - Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
    - Leak is in line between intake manifold and EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve
    - Foreign matter caught in EVAP canister vent control valve
    - EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
    - EVAP purge line (pipe and rubber tube) leaks
    - EVAP purge line rubber tube bent
    - Blocked or bent rubber tube to EVAP control system pressure sensor
    - Loose or disconnected rubber tube
    - EVAP canister vent control valve and the circuit
    - O-ring of EVAP canister vent control valve is missing or damaged
    - EVAP canister is saturated with water
    - EVAP control system pressure sensor
    - Absolute pressure sensor

    Possible solution
    - Loose fuel filler cap
    - Leaking fuel filler cap


    Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

    99 subaru legacy outback w/2.5 L boxer engine. Have PO 0440 obd II code. 98K miles Car misses at low RPM. Has a hessitation went you accellerate. Runs smooth at highway speeds. Replaced plugs, plug wires,...


    This code is associated with the EVAP system which includes, but not limited to gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valves. The EVAP system is supposed to prevent fuel vapors from escaping the fuel system

    If you have this code, one of the following may have happened:
    Gas cap not installed properly or faulty gas cap
    Purge solenoid has failed
    Canister is plugged and not working properly

    This code can be tricky to resolve, but try some of these:
    Remove and reinstall the gas cap and or replace the gas cap and clear the code and see if it comes back
    Inspect the the hoses, and tubes for any sign of a hole or cut
    Inspect for damage or disconnected hoses around the purge solenoid
    Check and or replace the sensor
    Check and or replace the purge valve
