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

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I see that you are having issues with your vehicles EVAP system. For the P0441 code, the issue that you are having is a common issue with this vehicle. I have checked and there are TSBs posted with fixes for this issue. The cause is likely to be the hoses to the vapor pressure sensor or the VSV or these components themselves. Here, I am attaching code and vehicle specific testing information for this cause along with the TSBs. As far as the P0171 code, this code is indicating issues with the O2 sensor. This issue will likely be a result of the EVAP malfunction.

I have also included the code specific information for the P0171 code.
