check engine light


Asked by Dec 08, 2014 at 03:35 PM about the 2007 Toyota Corolla CE

Question type: General

Went to Auto-Zone and the codes came up PO441 and PO455 and my mechanic says it
will cost $600.00 to get the parts from Toyota so he is looking at the junkyards for the
parts.Do I really need to replace these parts or can I drive the car the way it is.Any
advice  with this issues will be appreciated.Thanks

Both EVAP leak codes. Begin with a new gas cap. Only problem P0455 id "Gross" leak..a bad leak but still a gas cap is a cheap attempt before shelling out that king of money. But if it needs a new charcoal canister and valve and purge valve solenoid..sounds like the mechanic wants to do everything, if the gas cap does not solve it at least try to narrow it down. I have a 2006 Corolla and have had no problems,none

Oh yeah, you can drive it unless you begin to smell gasoline. That means the canister is saturated with liquid gas, and if you detect ANY odor of gas, do NOT drive it, The risk of fire is all too real
