Not So "Small" Evap Leak Detected: P0442
 
For a while I've had a code for this, and finally got around to checking last night when the car was up on the hoist.
I was quite upset, but couldn't stop laughing at what was considered a 'small' leak. I was expecting a pinhole or crack in the hose somewhere, instead I find this.

The fitting that the hose goes onto the charcoal canister actually cracked off the canister.. Tried to fix it temporarily but will probably end up needing a new charcoal canister.

Gorilla tape...plastic welding...zip tie it on? Just saying...it'd be a bit more expensive to buy the whole pump to fix a fitting. Good luck!

Tried plastic weld and super glue, it broke off, lol.
I just put a piece of hose in it that fit snugly, pushed it in both ends and siliconed around it. Ghetto as hell but if it works, I don't care!
