I doubt anything is wrong with your powertrain controller. It sounds like it's doing what it's supposed to, monitoring the EVAP system and throwing codes when it sees a problem. The problem went away or the check engine light would not have gone off. Some trouble codes can be self resolved like that (so many drive cycles without a problem, the light goes ...

The cars' computer runs tests on the emission systems on the car. When the car fails the test it turns on the light, if it passes the test after that it turns off the light. You may have something that is close to failing the parameters set by the OEM. A small leak that's just on the edge of passing. Something like temperature changes, or vibration could ...

Would need some context for the instructions in ...

In an answer to your linked question, Larry suggests that the indicator light could be coming on due to a loose gas cap, a torn hose or a leaking seal. Remember how the system works: When the right conditions are met IE fuel level between 1/3 and 1/2 tank, outside temp 50 - 90 etc. the ECM pulls a vacuum on the evap system and makes sure it holds a ...

There are a lot of things that can set this code, so it can be time consuming to figure out, and there are some special tools that make the job a lot easier. You can do it without the special tools, it's just going to take longer. The list below is what it takes to set the code. When VSV for pressure switching valve is ON, ECM judges that there is no ...
