A code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened: •A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
•A non-conforming gas cap (i.E. Not factory/original brand)
•A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
•Other small leak in EVAP system
•Faulty vent o-ring seal

Possible Solutions With a P0442, the most common repair is to: •Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
•Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
•Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
