Someone was telling me I need to replace the vs for vapor pressure sensor and charcoal canister for that code P0446 (the evap system) does that sound correct to u?

did they say if that was the cause of the rattle?

No, the rattle is a different issue going on, it sounds like a hiss when I press the gas pedal for about 5-7 seconds.......the P0446 code was given to me by a pep boys employee who used the scanner in my car, he said that it just said it was the evap circuit but wasn't specific on it so I really don't know
