Default P0441

1999 Camry 6 cyl. 94,400 km

Engine check light came on. Scanner id'ed code P0441. My mechanic cleared
code. It hasn't come back on yet. Could this code have been caused by
filling the gas tank too full, on several occasions, over the years? Any
TSB's on this? My mechanic said that it is *possible* that the charcoal
canister is cracked, hoses from fuel tank to cannister to various control
valves *might* be defective. etc etc He indicated that it isn't worth
spending bucks on until repetition and then, living in a province with no
environmental inspections, the costs of tracing and repairing the problem
have to be considered.

Any history of problems with the ECM in this model?

Check with your local Toyota dealer. I believe that there is a service
bulletin on this condition. I do not think it is related to overfilling the
fuel opr leaving the gas cap loose or off.

Someone wrote a post about court-ordered exteneded warranty on the
Toyota evap system. Don't know if this is applicable to your model and
year.

Toyota had some defective canisters and they blow carbon that plug up
the purge valve near the air filter housing and check valves.

You can try cleaning the purge valve by carefully prying open the metal
tabs holding the ports onto the solenoids. Clean it up and lube it.
Don't crack the plastic. See if this helps.

Before you do anything, try to find out more about the court-ordered
exteneded warranty.

There was a TSB issued in '02 for the 98-99 camry & solara related to P0441
it is EG013-02 MIL ON P0440, P0441 & P0446. Under certain driving
conditions, some 1998 - 1999 model year Camry and Solara vehicles may
exhibit a M.I.L. "ON" with DTCs P0440, P0441 and P0446 stored due to an
inoperative Vapor Pressure Sensor 3 way Vacuum Switching Valve (VSV). An
improved Vapor Pressure Sensor VSV has been developed to correct this
condition.
