Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P0422 doesn't show to be a valid code for this vehicle. It may have just been a typo or the code may have been reported incorrectly by whatever you read it with. I'm wondering if the code was actually P0442, which is an evaporative emissions leak.

Can you double check to see what code was actually set?

po442 evap leak
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 6 months ago.

The evaporative emissions system is what captures fuel vapors from the tank and draws them into the engine instead of going into the atmosphere. This code sets when there is a leak in the system. The problem could be as simple as a bad or loose fuel cap, it may be a damaged system line, the vapor canister, a leaking purge solenoid or vent valve. The fuel cap or a damaged line are most common.
