I went out and started the car I have not really been driving it but once a week but I have been starting it up and letting it run daily.
The check engine light came on.
took the car to auto zone got it scanned code p1441 popped up
which is - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Flow During Non-Purge.
been researching fixes on here and a few other sites and
pretty much same info check solenoid and lines and charcoal canister purge valve may be stuck open etc.
only thing is I dont know where half this stuff is but will eventually will
if anybody has pics would def help as you can tell not the best with cars but am deadset on learning as much possible use to just pay mechanics for the smallest ****... until I realized I dont have the money to be doing that lol
anyway as I started my search for loose/cracked vacuum lines
I came across this I dont know if this has anything even to do with my problem but it didnt seem right maybe wrong.
this is a picture of the line im referring to...
after giving a very sight tug it came off very easily.
here it is off I tryed to put it back on it went on but its very loose doesnt seal/plug tight.
does this have anything to do with my problem.
also just to add the guy at autozone cleared the code
so right now the cel is off. I also was going to buy a new gas cap and probably still am but when I went to see if it was tight and took it off there was no pressure just unloosened maybe that could be it?
so all in all
anybody that has had this problem any tips/pics of where I should be looking and what has helped your situation and what am I looking at pricewise if I have to change out solenoid / purge valve/ lines
need this done asap
gotta get emissions in like a week and a half
