Default P0442

I pulled the code P0442 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Small Leak Detected. What could be causing the leak? The malfunction light popped on last night.

Default Re: P0442

could have just been a loose gas cap. you really need a smoke machine to find the leak. my 0442 just turned into a p0455, so i plan to use the fix posted here first, since it's free to try P0455 Major Evap Leak Major issue

read where it starts "Turns out the Filler is"
