Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
P0442 refers to a small leak in the Evaporative Emissions System(It purges fuel tank vapors into the engine to be burned rather than vented into the atmosphere). From time to time the PCM pressurizes this system to check its integrity. If it senses a small leak, then it sets this code.
Is your gas cap on tight? Recheck it.
The evaporative emission system is probed by applying vacuum to the EVAP system and monitoring for a vacuum decay.
The engine control module (ECM) monitors the vacuum level through the fuel tank pressure sensor signal.
The EVAP canister purge valve and the EVAP vent solenoid are turned on at the nick of time, allowing the engine to **** up a small vacuum on the entire EVAP system.
After the requisite vacuum level has been obtained, the EVAP canister purge valve is switched OFF, locking the system entirely.
If sufficient vacuum level cannot be derived, a large leak is indicated. This can be caused by the following conditions
The P1684 code simply means that the battery has been disconneted within the last 50 starts.
