    Hey guys, my check engine light cut on yesterday. The code was P0440. I did a little research and made sure the gas cap was tight. What else could it be???? Any suggestions will be appreciated!

    If the gas cap is good, it could be the Evap canister is clogged or the purge valve has failed.

    Please tell me you don't leave the engine running when you refuel.
