2007 Saturn Aura XR: Check Engine light..Diag=PO Code 442, small leak

Resolved Question:

2007 Saturn Aura XR. Check Engine light. Diag=PO Code 442, small leak in evap system. Dealer had car for 2 days, smoke test etc. No trouble found. Dealer shut off light and told me to take key out of ignition when refueling. After refueling, car has difficulty starting and smoke comes from exhaust. Starting problem only occurs after refuel. Check engine light comes back on after about 200-300 miles. I suggested gas cap, dealer said no.

Hello JACUSTOMER< you need to have the dealer change the vehicles EVAP vent valve and purge valve. It is very common for these to not function properly on this vehicle and cause this.

what if dealer says that's not it
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 6 years ago.
They should not deny it. The vent valve is a very common issue on this vehicle. They obviously are not spending the time to doagnose it properly.
