    Has anyone had this problem. I just found out through a friend and co- worker that has a 2007 and is dealing with this problem. My engine light is on and pulled 2 trouble codes, but they don't match the codes on write up. It says you must have the 5 codes. This is not covered and is pricey fix, from 1-2 k. Any thoughts or comments would be great. Thanks

    My codes are p0455 and p0441. The codes deal with the charcoal canister and evaporation system, but there not the codes their referring to.

    I changed my gas cap, that was my first check, but not it. The service guy at my semi local Toyota dealership said that it didn't necessarily have to be them codes referenced, but couldn't give me a definite answer. I would have to bring it in. My good friend who's a mechanic said it was more than likely a leak and not a big issue, but would have to do a smoke test. I know there are some legit dealerships out there, but I just hate bringing my truck in. My friend who's 2007 has that problem said he told Toyota he shouldn't be liable for a poor design, which they revised or modified for the 2009. Toyota is picking up the tab, so that's encouraging.

    Do a basic visual inspection. You should be able to see 90% of the hoses no? Isnt the canister just located underneath, follow up the lines to the purge valve then to the intake. See if a fitting is loose or if you can see any tears in any of the hoses.

    Wouldnt hurt and could end up saving you money in the long run.
