DTC P0442 on 2002...stalls,& won't idle....any ideas?
My '02 Focus with the 2.0 4V has only 1 engine code showing when I scan it....P0442 Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak)- Anyone out there ever get this one and can you tell me what you found to be the culprit? I have looked over all the EVAP tubing and cannot locate any obvious cracks, or leaks that are otherwise open to atmosphere.
The car has had this stalling, sputtering issue several times before...I drive the car into town and it is running along just fine- then I stop at the store for just a few minutes- come back out and the things runs like crap; like its firing on 1 or 2 cylinders!
If I give it about an hour or so to cool down...it starts right up and runs fine.
HELP!!! Any ideas would be appreciated or if you have had the same problem..let me know what you found.
