I have the code description. What is the likely place this happens

I see, thanks. A lot of times it is just a bad gas cap but if not, or if you tried that already the test would have to be done to be sure.

What test

The diagnostic test for the specific code(s) that was offered to you.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I dont understand what test you are referring to. Test with a diagnostic scanner? a smoke machine? what?

Actually both. There also was a factory service bulletin for a P0442 to aid in diagnosing it.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
really I need a smoke machine to test this or will a scanner suffice

a smoker would be best..a scanner by itself may not help much

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok. Well when I was filling up with gas just now I could hear it sound like it was getting full then it would abate and keep filling them it would sound like it was filling up again. This happened a few times.

that wouldnt have anything to do with a vapor leak..

you need to make sure your gas cap is good,,if so,,smoke the system

thanks
