P0446evap code,check engine light on,cant pass smog

The E-VAP system is pretty simple but if the problem is electrical, You may need to let the dealership repair it. The P0446 code does refer to an observed issue with the "Vent Solenoid". You stated that you replaced the purge and vent solenoid. Did you check the vent solenoid and the charcoal canister for loose carbon material and/or debris? If the charcoal canister failed and is allowing carbon material to travel into the vent solenoid, it will jam and damage the vent solenoid. After you inspect those parts. inspect the two wire plug that attaches to the vent solenoid. Look for a broken or damaged wire. If I can answer anymore questions, please write back, good luck.

I have been getting a check gas cap notification on my 2006 chevrolet uplander. i check it and it seems to be fine. Then i get a check engine light. Can the gas cap cause a check engine light to come on?

Yes. Any leak in the evap system can cause a check engine light. A smoke machine can be used to isolate the leak. You most likely have a purge solenoid or vent solenoid leaking when commanded closed. The most common being the vent solenoid, located under the vehicle

P1443 code problem. How do I fix this?

P1446 - EVAP Canister Vent Control Valve Close
EVAP canister vent control valve remains closed under specified driving conditions.

This solenoid valve responds to signals from the ECM. When the ECM sends an ON signal, the coil in the solenoid valve is energized. A plunger will then move to seal the canister vent. The ability to seal the vent is necessary for the on board diagnosis of other evaporative emission control system components.

This solenoid valve is used only for diagnosis, and usually remains opened. When the vent is closed, under normal purge conditions, the evaporative emission control system is depressurized and allows EVAP Control System (Small Leak) diagnosis.

The EVAP canister vent control valve is located on the EVAP canister and is used to seal the canister vent.

- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

About the possible causes that your must solved:
- EVAP control system pressure sensor and the circuit
- Blocked rubber tube to EVAP canister vent control valve
- EVAP canister vent control valve
- Water separator
- EVAP canister is saturated with water

Hope this helps.

Replaced purge solenoid po449 code was up.check engine light pops up again

P0449 is a fault with the vent solenoid at the rear near the gas tank, not a fault for the purge solenoid, which is under the hood.

I have not had any problems yet but the engine light is on and it came up with the code p0496 what could it be

the p0496 means that the evap system flow during non-purge first check ur gas cap this can cause the check engine code if cap is good and on tight than the usual culprit is either evap purge solenoid and or canister vent solenoid sticking not expensive to replace by self in driveway but before u do check with a dealer in area and advise about code to see if covered should be since its an 08 evap should be covered [dont know mileage and or condition of truck which makes a difference on warranty ]

Locating vacuum canister and testing it. check engine light has come on and the code is P0442. I replaced the gas cap, check engine light still on. Looked for leaks w/ visible hoses but can't locate evap...

The purge solenoid should be in the hard plastic vent lines that run under the tube between the intake and the air filter, ablove the transmission, it is common for vibration holes to be worn in the hard plastic tubes causing a vacuum leak. The purge solenoid is small and it has an electric wire coming from it. I 'think' your canister is in the front lower left corner under the hood, you may have to remove splash shields to see it. The problem is most likely in the hard plastic lines at the solenoid. Let me know if this helps.
