The company’s Technical Services team produced the video using a Camry LE model that had failed an emissions test as a result of a PO446 code, which indicates that a leak was detected while activating the vacuum switch valve (VSV) during an EVAP monitor test. In many cases, industry repair resources recommend automatic replacement of the EVAP canister when a PO441 or PO446 code is encountered. To avoid this expensive purchase when possible, the Wells team demonstrates how to remove and bench test the canister and VSV.
