What is the code P0441 for 2004 KIA Sorento?

This code is for an EVAP purge fault, most common cause is loose gas cap, try tightening cap, may take a couple days for the light to go off, if it doesn't could be a purge valve error.

Engine light just come on has 77,000 miles

your ecm (cars computer) is storing codes could be as simple as a loose gas cap could be a phantom code check gas cap disconnect battery (neg first) for 1 min start and drive light should be off at this point if it comes back on take it to auto zone for free diagnostics they can even save you the hassle of disconnecting battery they can read and reset ecm for free

My 2005 kia amanti has check engine light on which generates a P0441 code. The engine has been silently dying while driving and at times will lurch forward when driving 70mph on highway and also while...

Sounds like the Fuel Evap Purge Valve is stuck. When open, this valve channels gas vapors from your tank into your intake when you crank the engine. If it gets stuck open, then it could lead to additional air in your intake which upsets your fuel/air mix and leads to poor performance. Have the dealership check it out for you.

Also, make sure your gas cap is on tight. The code is thrown when the pressure in your gas tank is off which indicates a possible problem with the valve but a loose cap can also cause the code.

Licht check engine burns

You need to read the code using a CAN code scanner and reset it. Most common fault is EVAP which indicates the cgas cap may have been loose. Look for rust around the top of the filler neck and clean it off with fine sandpaper then apply light grease and reinstall cap.

2004 Buick LaSabre engine service light is on and dealer and autozone says it is a loose gas cap but it is not loose. What do I do?

The cap might need a pressure check. Just because it stays on and tight doesn't mean it is functioning properly. It must meet EPA standards to function properly. Your cap is special part of your emission system and if it is not working properly you will need to replace it and have the light reset. If you owed a code reader it would tell you the same. Auto zone does do free code reading. The check engine light usually is not a big problem,but... I will leave it at that.

P0442 check engine light code

The computer that read the code for you can also reset it.  If you don't have one, you can go to your local auto parts store and have them reset it for you.  This is what your code means P0442 Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak).  This is what Causes it and possible fixes: CausesA code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
  • Other small leak in EVAP system
  • Faulty vent o-ring seal
Possible SolutionsWith a P0442, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
