1) 3yr/36k mile Bumper to bumper warranty or 5yr/60k Drivetrain
2) No, only airbag recalls on 2002

P0440 OBD-II Trouble Code
Technical Description Evaporative Emission Control System Malfunction

What does that mean? This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

Symptoms You likely won't notice any drivability problems.

Causes A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

The gas cap is not installed or working properly
The purge solenoid has failed
The canister is plugged and not working properly
Possible Solutions With a P0440 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:

Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
Check and/or replace the sensor
Check and/or replace the purge valve
Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks

1a) Federal Emissions Warranty up to 80k. Take it to the dealer.

Though I shouldn't have mentioned it, as you should not be posting this in this forum.

Not under warranty..I had this on my 99 camry..You might have to change the EGR and VSV ...dealer charged like $750 or so..

I'm bookmarking this thread so I can post it whenever anyone says to buy a Toyota.


Anyway, if it's not the fuel cap, then it's most likely the purge solenoid or maybe a vacuum leak. I once replaced the purge solenoid because it wasn't holding vacuum as good as it should. the only way to test it was with a vacuum pump and a gauge.

Manufacturing defect on some years, according to this thread.

It's Federal Law, Emission system warranty 8 years or 80K miles, dealer has to fix as long as you followed maintenance schedules.

Some dealers need a state sticker of failing inspection before the dealer will fix it.

Smog shops specialize in this sort of thing, take it to them.

This EPA link describes it

. PERFORMANCE WARRANTY

The Performance Warranty covers repairs which are required during
the first 2 years or 24,000 miles of vehicle use because the vehicle
failed an emission test. Specified major emission control components
are covered for the first 8 years or 80,000 miles. If you are a
resident of an area with an Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) program
that meets federal guidelines, you are eligible for this warranty
protection provided that:

* Your car or light-duty truck fails an approved emissions test;
and

* Your vehicle is less than 2 years old and has less than 24,000
miles (up to 8 years/80,000 miles for certain components); and

* Your state or local government requires that you repair the
vehicle; and

* The test failure does not result from misuse of the vehicle or a
failure to follow the manufacturers' written maintenance
instructions; and

* You present the vehicle to a warranty-authorized manufacturer
representative, along with evidence of the emission test failure,
during the warranty period.

During the first 2 years/24,000 miles, the Performance Warranty
covers any repair or adjustment which is necessary to make your
vehicle pass an approved, locally-required emission test and as long
as your vehicle has not exceeded the warranty time or mileage
limitations and has been properly maintained according to the
manufacturer's specifications.


It cost me $126 for OBD code P0440 - buy a new gas cap and save yourself $120. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif" border=0>
