440 does not identify any part that is bad. it indicates a problem with the evap system. a shop with a scan tool can check the vent solenoid, purge valve and smoke test it for leaks. there is no guessing on evap codes as it can get expensive. let a shop check it for you to verify. one common issue is the wiring harness from the body to the vent solenoid is too short and the wires pull out of the connector.

the valve is about 69 at a dealer. you can try autozone. they may have it in dorman. if not, then the dealer. Roy

there is one on the back of the block on the passenger side. there is a line with a green cap. follow that line to the solenoid. there is also a vent valve in the back of the car on the passenger side. when you get the new part, it will be easier to find when you have it in your hand. Roy
