Its emissions time again. Ive been driving with the P0440 for ever....somehow got it through a couple years ago after fixing a few hoses, a reset and a bit of driving. (of course it came back a month later) Ive researched drive cycles and all that. This time around, this is how it is acting: It was throwing the code within just a few miles of a reset....didnt care until emissions came around again. I did find that filling the tank and resetting let me get alot more miles on it before the light came on....... Went through the hoses again....re did some of the ones I did a couple years ago, found a few more. I seem to have made an improvement now, because now regardless of whats in the tank, a reset will give me a good while....hell we even got about 600 miles on it one weekend that we went away on vacation..thought that was that...but even though this was a lot of miles, it was not alot of drive cycles......perhaps only 1 or 2 eight hour cool downs, etc. Point is, the Monday we got back, I was gonna take it to the testing station at lunch time, and the damn light came on again. Now, Ive had it come on after reset anywhere from 60 to 100 miles in general, again it seems to depend more on the number of drive cycles. I read somewhere that the Evap system is the last to test itself after all other ready monitors are set. So Im torn on trying to find a way to sneak it through, or what else I can do to actually fix it. I had replaced the purge valve when we first bought the car about 4 years ago.....Also, when Im under the car, pressing on the gas tank makes a kind of whistly, wheezy air noise...then letting off, it sort of breathes back in....so I wonder if its leaking around the fuel pump. (Ive replaced the fuel pump on this thing twice...dropping the tank is no problem...but I THINK last time the new gasket was really thick and a pain to get on and I think I used the old gasket...) Now, of course, not even MOPAR sells the damn gasket! it says discontinued. Dont wanna buy another pump just to get a gasket! Though about gobbing it up with some sort of sealant but not sure what would be most fuel resistant. Then, I thought about buying a code reader that has the ready monitor indicators on it....and trying to see if theres some magic time zone when all the ready monitors except the evap are set...(Maryland is an all but 1 state--meaning that it will pass if only 1 ready monitor is not set) Most states are all but 2. Then there is the cigar in a bucket ghetto smoke test...Id have to buy a compressor though. And, no a professional mechanic is out of the question. Even if I had the money, which I dont. Really just venting....like my gas vapors apparently are. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated!
