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.

My car failed with the codes - PO442 & PO455 - EVAP LEAKS. is this even worth getting fixed - 2002 chevy T&C


Could be minor problem with vacuum lines leaking, bad gas cap, bad purge valve, etc. Worth fixing is a call based on everall condition of car, but this could be very minor.

2002 chevy impala with 3800 engine has po4402 code


Hello
Your Code p0442 refers to an emission control leak was detected.
The first place I would start would be to replace the GAS CAP and as for me I would go straight to the dealer and buy it and not buy a aftermarket one.
If that does NOT do the trick :-O now Houston we have a problem it could be one of over guessing 10-20 small vacuum lines that could be leaking. But NO FEAR my money is 10/1 it's the gas cap. And make sure every time you full the tank the cap is tight.
Being a 2002 that cap's been off and on a million times, well almost
LOL and I am sure it's toast!!!!
Be kind and be safe.

My 96 Chevy blazer won't accept gas every time I


Codes or no Evap Codes, the issue is in that system
You need a schematic of the evap system, so you can
test the solenoid or valves,mainly the vent solenoid, if that
applies Not the purge valve, that is up front & opens to allow
engine vacuum to draw out fuel fumes from the tank.

What is the code po440 on an 2002 impala


Hi there:

This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

The gas cap is not installed or working properly
The purge solenoid has failed
The canister is plugged and not working properly

With a P0440 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
Check and/or replace the sensor
Check and/or replace the purge valve
Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks

Hope helps.

I have a po442 code on a 2007 Chevy Tahoe


p0422 is a small leak in what is called your EVAP system basicly its the pressure that is held inside the fuel tank its an emissions thing there two valves one by the tank called the canaster vent solenoid and one on the intake manifold called the canaster purge solenoid . The vent sends fume from the tank to the charcoal canaster when the pressure is high inside the tank and is stored until the engine speed is high enough to open the purge valve to allow this vapor to be burned in the engine It could be anywhere in the system a leak but the gas cap often be the problem if its not sealing ther you will have a small leak in this system . It could be something else but see if when you remove the cap after driveing for a while if you have pressure when you remove the cap it is likely the problem

2000 Caravan,error codes po135, po403, po442, po455 What do I need to check/change?


The error code P0135 ,this error code is related to O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1).It would be a upsteam o2 sensor.The upstream one which is mounted on the exhaust manifold. The sensors is located in the back of the engine on the exhaust pipe. You must have a O2 sensor socket to replace it because of where it is located. You can borrow one of these from Autozone.The sensorlooks like a sparkplug with 2 wires coming out the top of it. The error code P0403 , this error is related to Exhaust Gas Recirculation Circuit Malfunction. For the details about this error i suggest you to click the link shown below. The link :--- http://www.obd-codes.com/p0403 ------------- The error code P0442 ,this error is related to leak in the Vaporative Emissions or EVAP system. Common problem. Few places to check - rubber hose under air box (requires removing the airbox) and hoses connecting to evap system under the van on the drivers side. -------------- The error code P0445 .This error indicates Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve Circuit Shorted.Try replacing the gas cap.If its loose then tight the gas cap and check. The charcoal canister stores gas fumes from the gas tank. Every so often, the computer commands a "purge valve" to open up and draw fresh air through the canister to remove the gas fumes. The engine sucks those fumes into the intake manifold and burns them.The purge valve is an electric solenoid valve. Actually, there are two of these valves--one is the purge valve that opens the vacuum line between the canister and the intake, the other is a vent valve that opens the canister to take in fresh air. The computer monitors the voltage on the lines to the valves and watches for a voltage drop when it commands the valves to open. If it doesn't see that drop, it stores a code. ---------------- This are the details of the error codes mentioned by you.The mentioned parts has to be checked and replaced to clear up the problem. -------Thanks.helptech.

Where is the PCV valve on a 2002 Chevy Impala?


This sounds like a possible bad fuel pressure regulator.
Depending on which engine (3.4l or 3.8l) they can be easy or hard to replace. For pics on the 3.4l regulator replacement, see this link...
