View Full Version : Error code P0442

11-23-2009, 11:26 AM
My check engine light is on and giving me the error code P0442 (small leak in the Vaporative Emissions) This is the only info my engine code reader gives me. Is there a quick fix of any sort? Is there any know issues with the evaporative emission system or a failure prone part? My truck passed the emissions test 2 months ago where the fuel tank cap was pressure tested and all was well. I would like to fix this in the next day or so as snow is forcast in 2 days.
