Got P0441?

Posted in Blog by admin with No Comments

Feb2012 28

Every car has its quirks, and the newer Volkswagens and Audis are no different. I laughed when I called the dealership earlier today to check the price on a evaporative emissions purge valve today, and the guy on the other end of the line, the parts manager, finished the part number for me.

Apparently this is a very common problem on just about every engine offering since 2006, including the 2.0t FSI and TSI, the 2.5, 3.2, and 4.2 V8. So common the parts manager joked that it was a regular maintenance item and said he wouldn’t be surprised if there was a recall on the part.

The problem shows up as a check engine light with a “16825/P0441/001089 – EVAP Emission Control Sys: Incorrect Flow” code stored in the DTC memory.

If you’re getting this code, the most likely culprit is the aforementioned evap purge valve. Of course, no amount of internet diagnosis can ever take the place of a qualified mechanic looking over your vehicle’s evaporative emissions system and checking for leaks, broken hoses, or some other sort of failure. However, at $17 a pop at dealer list price, it’s a cheap part that is easy to replace and should be the first thing any mechanic who is familiar with these vehicles will check.

The part number is 06E-906-517A, and we keep these parts in stock should you need one.
