Question Got CEL code 440, Emission System Control

Anyone know of this type of a code?

Name sounds like it has something to do with the exhaust gas release valve system.

Pulled it on a palm.


Thanks,

~Evan

There's a recall. It appears the computer pulls up CEL's having to do with the emission control system. They need to reprogram it.

"The On-Board Diagnostic System, which is part of your vehicle's engine control system and contained in the Engine Control Module, is designed to monitor your vehicle's engine/emission control system. If a problem is detected, the "Check Engine" warning light/Malfunction Indicator Lamp, located on the instrument panel, will illuminate and alert the driver of the need for vehicle service.

The Engine Control Module software logic for the circuit that controls the front oxygen (air/fuel ratio) sensor in your vehicle may have been programmed incorrectly during production. As a result of this condition, the "Check Engine" light may illuminate without cause. It will be necessary to have the ECM software reprogrammed to correct this condition."

actually IIRC the P0440 is the purge control solenoid failure code which also warrants an ECM reflash.

its for any obdII car, all obdII codes are the same, its a standerdized system required by the gov't.

P0440...I can check but I think its evap system leak, did you fill up with your car running?

I drove 90 miles to Autozone today and they pulled the exact same code on my '97 L. Does anyone know what my options are?

I'm pretty cheap and I just had my 98 Outback throw this code. It was related to the evap system, which had not been in a ready state. I had been trying to get the evap to go ready for about two weeks. I checked all the hoses that were easy to get to and tried 3 different gass caps that I got from the boneyard. No, luck. This A.M. I was in Walmart to get wiper blades and next to the blades were NEW gas caps. I figured I should try a new one just to be sure it wasn't the cap. Drove about 40 miles today and guess what!! No codes evap is ready. Man, those gas cap are finickey.

It could still come back later because your tank is currently full - I pulled this info from a service technician's guide (italics/underline mine):

"The testing of this system is only
conducted once per drive cycle and
only under very specific conditions:
The fuel tank must contain less than 9.6
gallons of fuel.

The fuel temperature must be less than
113F.
Engine speed must be over 1500 RPM.
Vehicle speed over 28 MPH.
Throttle position must be mid-range.
Intake manifold vacuum must be
equivalent to cruising vacuum.
455 seconds must have elapsed since
engine start."

So... if your tank is kept full, you can avoid triggering the test in the first place (a strategy I am soon to use to pass my emissions - ha!).

Cool Codes related to misfire?

We're battling a misfire on our 02 legacy outback wagon and the CEL goes on and off fairly frequently. Are the two events necessarily related? The CEL goes on with or without the misfire, which causes bucking, stuttering, etc.

Thanks!
