Customer Question

I have a code of P0442 and there are some issues with starting the vehicle after it has been sitting for a period of time. Jumping it off works, and I have already had the battery tested.
JA: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Chevy Mechanic will know what to do. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: The battery has already been replaced. The temperature reading for the outside temp is also off by about 80 degrees.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have replaced the gas cap, replaced the battery and used a code reader to determine that there is a small evap leak
JA: Is there anything else the Chevy Mechanic should be aware of about your Chevy?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
