P0441 Engine Evap Emission System

vacuum smoke machine

The very basic test for this code is to check/replace the gas tank cap and most of this code will be corrected. If not, check for loose connections on your vacuum lines on the evaporative system (this involves all the vacuum lines between the gas tank and evaporative canister... then also from the canister to all the various valves, solenoids up to the throttle body).Also, check all the wiring connections for the evaporative system circuit.


Evaporative system is a way of recovering raw gas vapor from your gas tank and feeding it to your throttle body instead of letting it escape to the atmosphere which causes pollution. This is why your gas cap is the best way to start. If after doing this the code remains, have your evaporative system tested for vacuum leak using a smoke machine which can monitor miniature vacuum leak not visible to the human eye.

For advance test, use a scan tool to manually operate the evaporative solenoids and make sure they are working. On extreme cases, if vacuum blockage is suspected, a vacuum diagram is required so that all vacuum flow passages can be cleaned and blown out.

To fully understand your engine evaporative emission system, get a service manual description available from your local parts store. Such manual is important because it will give the latest emission repair information, service bulletins, recall, vacuum and wiring diagrams which can help you understand the evaporative emission system. ATS can also give you these including an online email assistance so you can fix this problem.
