Evap Code - Hyundai Forum - Hyundai Enthusiast Forums

Hyundai Elantra While not much larger than the accent, the Elantra offers similar room, but a sportier look and feel, as well as more power.

Default Evap Code

My check engine light is on in my '00 elantra.

P0441 Evap Emissions Incorrect Purge Flow

Anyone experience this code before and is there a common fix?
I was thinking purge valve?

I believe emissions is warranted for 8 years, 80,000 miles. If you're still under warranty, let a dealer check it out. Sounds like a purge control valve problem though.

nope...140k on the thing unfortuneately...otherwise i would be all over it haha.

can you tell me where the purge valve is/how much it costs off the top of your head? i saw a valve at the rear of the car near the gas tank, and also one close by to the fuel filter.

Edit: Filled up the other night, crank time was pretty long...i'm thinking this relates to my code, any ideas?

The purge valve for the Elantra RD series is under the hood between the brake booster and the left side wheel well. You access it by removing the air cleaner box, then it's relatively easy to replace.

I had the problem where it's really hard to fill your gas tank from the pump, the nozzle shuts off too easy. My evap system was clogged with charcoal pellets from the evap canister.

Four months on after I cleaned out my evap system. No more charcoal pellets coming out. I sealed up the canister with fiberglass mesh screen. My system seems to have fixed itself, I can fill my gas tank as fast as I want. Since there is no more charcoal coming out, I can fill my tank to the very top with no unintended consequences.

I was having a problem with the purge valve. Code P0441 Purge Valve incorrect flow. Difficulty starting when warm. I took it off and cleaned it. It was not sealing or actuating properly, and I could suck air through it. After cleaning it, it was sealing tight. I put it back on. Worked ok.

1000 miles later, I get a code again. This time P0441 along with P0445. P0445 is short circuit purge valve, which means the valve is now bad electrically. I found a replacement from the junkyard $2. All is well again.
