oops... the model year of the car is 2007. I misunderstood my hubby
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 6 years ago.
in 2007 there is a 496 code, this is usually caused by a bad evap purge valve, the computer is not seeing flow through the evap purge valve, do you have any diagnostic equiptment?

Where is that? How safe will it be for my son to drive back and forth to school. Can't get it fixed immediately .
