ELANTRA CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

2002 Hyundai Other

I have a 2002 Hyundai Elantra with 67000 miles on it The check engine light is on and the code reads P0441. According to Auto Zone it is the purge flow in the evaporative emission control is incorrect. At AZer's request I waited two weeks since I topped off the gas tank. I have replaced the fuel cap and the light came back on. I am not ready to take it to the dealer yet$$$$$. Is the Evap canister under the drivers side rear qtr panel? There is a funky box with a vent down there. Where can I find the purge or vent solenoid? They have some unique hiding places nowadays.
Is it going to be cheaper to just take it to a shop or replace parts one at a time?

I dunno. Depends on how lucky you guess in the beginning. It depends if you make matters worse.

IF you take it to a shop and price is the biggest concern, you might as well do it yourself. If you take it to a shop that does their homework and is capable of troubleshooting you may save yourself a lot of money and agony. Maybe not.

Here are the PROBABLE causes, may not be one of these how ever:
