Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
HOW TO FIX
Posted by Anonymous on
The PO 442 code is an EVAP system small leak, either in the evaporative system or cooling. Sometimes this will occur after a drenching rain and remain until the diagnosis code is reset, usually will disappear after you read the codes. If not, a dealer can reset the code system via the radio believe it or not. PO 445 is similar, an EVAP system code but is usually related to gas vapors being sent to the engine rather than through the atmospheric venting system. Check the gas cap system here first, a gas cap not properly tightened (3 click) will sometimes cause this. Also, look to the spark system wiring harness or purge control solenoid.

No the flap inside the fuel filler pipe is just an anti theft device to make it more difficult to siphon fuel out of the tank. The most likely cause for the code it the fuel cap itself. If you don't get the gas cap tight after you fuel up, it can set a computer code and turn on the Check Engine Light. After you check to make sure the cap is on tight, clear the engine code and see if it comes back on. If it does then have the fuel cap tested to make sure that it doesn't have a vaccuum leak.

The p0442 is a moderate leak in the EVAP control system and p0455 is a large leak in the EVAP control system. First thing is to ensure that your filler cap is on tight and that the seal is effective. Next is to check the tubing of the EVAP system for any holes or disconnections. The P1404 is the valve in your EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) is staying closed. It could also be that the EGR piping is clogged up with soot (baked carbon deposits). Similarly the p0404 is an EGR related error code. Your vehicle is quite new and it would be unusual for the EGR to pack up or require cleaning out so early in its life. I would make sure that the connector pins in the connection socket to the EGR are clean and bright and that there no breaks in the wiring back to the power control module. If no joy then remove the EGR and examine the freedom of movement of the valve. If gummed up spray liberally with carburettor cleaner spray and leave to stand for at least ten minutes before wiping away the crud. Repeat until the valve looks like new and reinstall. After four or five restarts without fault the error code should clear.
