Hyundai Elantra Check Engine Light Due to Failing Canister Purge Valve

(22 reports)

A failing vapor canister purge valve may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This valve is part of the evaporative (EVAP) emission control system.

Started with trouble filling gas tank. Hose shutting off in the winter at the beginning of the fill kind of like in the summer when it is hot and there is vapor lock. Won't let me put in much more than 25-50 cents then cuts off. Repeats many times. Last time I held the nozzle up and in to the fill cap as far as it would go and that let it fill more. Then when I went back to the position it would be in for normal filling or "auto-filling" it choked again. After maybe 5-6 tank fills like this, the red engine light is now shining on my dash. -

purge valve -
MIL [Check engine light] illuminated on dash. Garage diagnosed as P0440, [generic code?] and found straps holding EVAP canister were rotted, allowing same to partially drop and disconnect. Reattached and reset codes. Within 2 weeks, MIL reactivated, and I purchased a scan tool, which now shows P0441 [manufacturers code] purge valve problem. Yet to be re-addressed by repairer, who is not a Hyundai dealership, but a licensed repair facility. -
Filling the car takes a lot of time as the gas pump clicks off from the gas backing up in the fill tube. -
Evap caninister -
Check engine light came on. Shop replaced gas cap and found charcoal had escaped from canister and moved into lines. Cleaned out lines, replaced solenoid and charcoal canister. Light came on again after about 50 miles. Don't know what's wrong now, but car runs great, so for financial reasons I am going to wait to get it checked again. Won't be able to pass smog check if this light is on, though. -
08 Azera, replaced the canister ($300+), 3 times purge valve replacement, light keeps going off & on. Back to dealer Wednesday to check for spiders/web in some line. -
Yup, got the same problem with the check engine light -
Eng. lite, cannister purge valve listed as problem. Nothing in Haynes book about it, but same problem with 2003 Chevy Silverado. I just have to find problem area and fix it. -
Check engine light. 2 codes came up - one was 0302 and don't remember the other. Still working on this -
check engine light code refers to purge valve. replaced pitted steel line that leads to canister. Light stayed off for about 3 days and then reappeared. I put in a new purge valve and replaced the hoses and the light came back on after 32 miles and I cannot get the car inspected -
