P0446 relates to a fuel tank shutoff valve not a purge system leak. Test for voltage at the valve. It is most likely time to replace the charcoal shut off valve.

is the charcoal shut off valve in the right hand side?
Expert:  Kevin replied 7 years ago.

On that model I believe it is hidden by the frame above the spare tire. I will check when I arrive at work tomorrow and verifiy in the morning.



Expert:  Kevin replied 7 years ago.
I was correct. The shut off valve is above the spare tire in the rear of the vehicle. Good Luck!
