Do you have to have vacum hose and or be able to close off a hose when changing the Charcoal cartrige and or the evap vent valve... all these parts are above the spare tire. i can get to them easily...not sure if it is as simple as removeing a part and replaceing it with the new part.
Question Asked: P0446,emissions;a perpetual problem. no one can fix. is it a guessing game?

have spent $1000.00 two different mechanics in two weeks and the light is back on again. replaced the evap purge valve hose and electric harness. light came back on after 50 miles. Took it to Authorized service center, they said it is the evap purge valve. No just replaced it, oh ok then it is the canister. ok so they changed the canister, two days later check engine light on again. Seems you could test the parts before replacing all one peice at a time. please help, running out of money.
