Check for a lweaking fuel pressure regulator, by pulling the vacuum hose. There should be no liquid fuel at the vacuum port. The 440 is an evap system leak. Make sure the cap is fully installed, and clear the codes. If it returns, you may have a faulty fuel cap, or a leak in the system. This could be at the sender seal, a faulty vent solenoid, cracked tank, or elsewhere in the system.
