This is the second time in a month that this code has been tripped. Car seems to drive just fine. Is this anything to be seriously considered of? Should I take it into the dealership?
I just spoke to Baxter they said it could be a faulty gas cap, they have those often. Sometimes it doesn't close flush with the car. It could also be a leak somewhere in the hoses. If it does it one more time I'll bring it in and see if they can fix it.i used to get the code to.. only started after a custom tune.. not sure what the deal is but from my research it is a pretty common code for dodge vehicles.
i never did find out what it was.. i just cleared it and moved on.
My service advisor said it's a common problem and that more times than not it's that the gas cap goes faulty. Basically it doesn't seal 100% after you turn it and that it can cause this code.An update. P0441 just popped again. Car seems to drive fine. Only thing different is I plugged my Trinity back in yesterday. Otherwise no changes to the car at all. I don't see what plugging the Trinity back in would have to do with it but figured I mention it as that is the only thing that's changed since last time it popped.
I'd like to figure out what it is that causes this? Sounds ominous. Like instead of purging whatever is supposed to be purged it is in turn ingesting it. Can't be good if it is supposed to be purged.
From what I've been told by a trusted Mopar mechanic, the computer will pressurize the fuel and evap system at a scheduled time. If, when it does this, it wont hold pressure it trips the code, that's why you never want to fuel up the car with it running (And safety reasons too obviously) because if the cap is off when the computer decides its time to do the pressure check, it's going to throw a code thinking theres a leak. A cap that wont seal correctly does the same thing. Hope that's all it is for you.ya i don't know.. i wish i new.. i would think if a line was leaky it would trip ALL THE TIME and not just sparatic..
let me know what you find out.
