Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No it has not its running very well. i. hve been watching you tube vidoes to reserch it was p 4040 something like that

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Station?

2001 dodge durango

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Station yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had the leak fixed yesterday. i am will unplug the battery and see if the code goes out. i have to make it to you MD then if it needs to be repaired then I will have it fixed. I am asking you for you recommendations

Have you scanned the computer system to see what the fault code is that should be setting?

Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

The code needs to be a 4 digit code . Could it have been a P0440?

If in fact, the fault code was a P0440 then the common cause for this code to set is in most cases due to a failing Natural Leak Detection Unit (NVLD) which is mounted at the rear near the fuel tank. Sice you are not able to fix it at this time, go ahead and clear the code by disconnecting the negative battery cable and also make sure the gas cap is on tight and see if the code returns. If in fact, it does then it will need to be addressed when you are able. That being said as long as the light is on steady and not flashing you are safe to drive it. Usually, you will not notice any difference in performance because the computer system has back up strategy.
