  1. The P0440 code means that the control module has detected a leak in the Evaporative Emission (EVAP). Loose fuel tank filler cap is the most common cause that triggers the P0440 code.

    P0440 Chrysler – General EVAP System Failure

    Possible causes
    – Missing or loose fuel cap
    – Incorrect fuel filler cap used
    – Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
    – Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
    – EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks
    – EVAP system hose leaking
    – Fuel tank leaking

    P0440 Chrysler Description
    The Engine Control Module (ECM) tests the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) system for the following conditions:

    – Large and small leaks

    – Excess vacuum

    – Purge flow during non-commanded conditions

    – Fuel Level and Fuel Pressure sensor faults

    – EVAP Purge and Vent Valve faults

    The ECM monitors the Fuel Tank Pressure sensor in order to determine the level of vacuum/pressure in the EVAP system. The ECM commands both the EVAP Purge Solenoid and the EVAP Vent Valve ON when the conditions are met in order to apply an engine vacuum to the EVAP system. The ECM commands the EVAP Purge Solenoid OFF once the system has reached a predetermined level of vacuum. This test verifies if a vacuum can be achieved in the EVAP system. Failure to develop a vacuum may be caused by a large leak or a restriction.
