Assuming that you have a 1.6 litre engine. Vehicle Application: 1998 Nissan Sentra 1.6L, Vin A, Eng Des GA16DE Customer Concern: Trouble codes P0440 and P1448. Tests/Procedures: 1. Blow through the canister vent control valve with the key off. It should be easy to blow through. 2. With the ignition switch on, ground the Purple/White trace wire. One should not be able to blow through the solenoid at this time. Potential Causes: Canister Vent Control Valve Tech Tips: The canister vent control valve is a common failure on this vehicle. Diagnostic Codes: P0440, P1448
