P0441 set in your 2002 Hyundai Elantra referrers to incorrect EVAP system purge flow. If your car is driving normally it is probably not critical that you get this issue repaired immediately. It does mean however that the EVAP system is not functioning correctly and as a result your vehicle is allowing more hydrocarbons in the air that it was designed to do. This will cause you vehicle to fail a state mandated smog inspection.
