Hey Jerry,I have an 2002 Chevy Cavalier with 155,000 miles on it.
It has been sitting unused for about 2 years.
Had to replace the rear wheel cylinders due to leaking.
Fixed up everything to pass a VA state inspection.
Engine runs good and have put about 10 to 15 miles on it with no problems.
Now I have check engine light with codes C1275 and P0442.
These codes have multiple causes, what do you think it is?

Hello, let me see if I can provide you with some information on this condition.

The engine light with be requested on by the P0442 - Small Evap Leak. The other code is for the ABS system.

The P0442 will need to be tested by inducing smoke and sealing the system by someone with a scan tool capable of commanding the system sealed.

The most common areas of the leaks on the Cavaliers is the gas cap loose or its seal has worn out/cracked and the fuel filler neck. If the car is rusty from sitting I would suspect the fuel filler neck or gap cap sealing first.

Hopefully this information I provided is helpful. If so please click accept answer and provide a positive rating so that I can be credited for this question. Thank you very much :)
