still running with p0441 code 1998 v6 Camry....code came on at 120K...now has 146K passed California smog by cleaning the purge valve and IAC...engine light went away but came back on again....sounds like a badly engineered evap system...ive hear people replacing full charcoal canister, evap valvs still problem comes back again...had three Camry 96, 98, 97...all had emission issues that are difficult to diagnose...even by dealer...won't buy Toyota again..

Not always, but very subtle feeling car lurching when driving, especially on freeway. Then 4 times over 3 months upon starting it was almost as the battery was dead and took a few minutes to get going, but then it would not happen again for 3 weeks. Yesterday had it diagnosed cause check engine light came on and was told the ERG valve was bad and needed to be replaced. $1,020.00.

Light on and I failed the smog test even though the emissions were normal or better, but the purg valve had failed.
