Do you have the code numbers?
PO440 PO441 PO446 the engine light is on and it failed emmisions
The primary code here is the P0440 code. This means there is a leak somewhere in the evaporative control system. This could be anything from a hose fitting to something in the charcoal canister but typically it is due to the gas cap seal leaking or not being tight or the filler neck itself being corroded. Whenever you have a leak in the system the other two codes P0441 and P0446 will set by default because when the system runs its self test it does not see the pressure differentials needed to confirm whether or not the evap solenoid and the tank canister bypass valve are working correctly. At this point your best bet and option is to secure the gas cap or replace it with a good Toyota gas If you're in doubt as to whether or not it is any good then remove the negative battery cable to erase the memory the computer and see if the codes come back. If they do you will need to get the system pressure tested to check for leaks.
