Default Check Engine Light

The Check Engine light is on in my 2001 PT Cruiser. When this has happened in the past a new gas cap solved the problem. Not so this time. The codes P0442 and P0455. I recently had to remove the battery to access transmission pump hoses (used for towing the PT behind an RV). Is it possible I knocked a vacuum hose loose? Or? Thanks for all the help.

You would have notice the condition very quickly if it happened then. I would follow all the the big vac lines to see which ones are bad. Start at the brake booster and go from there.

I would suggest if you have checked all the hoses to do a smoke machine test and see where the smoke starts to leak from in the evap system.
