I got a P0440 today, while pulling in the driveway of course. I found a couple of the rubber connectors that are worn out and cracked. I want to use some rubber tubing to replace them. I need to know what size of hose to get. Can anyone help?

These are the things I'm talking about. (This isn't my picture. I found it in another thread, thanks to whoever took it.)

I can't remember the size. Best to take it in to your auto parts store. they have rolls of bulk hose, they will match it up and give you what ever length you need.

Mind if I get in this boat? I'm getting a P0442, but for the same reason.

Most of your tubing will be 7/32" inner diameter. Get about five feet of this. The line to your fuel pressure regulator is 1/4" ID, and there'* also some ⅜" ID tubing; you'll need a foot of each, because I'm told you'll mess up.

Adapters… that'* tricky.

I got the hoses today, most of the connections I have are 1/4".

About two weeks ago, I accidentally overfilled my tank. I figured I better check my charcoal canister to be sure it'* not full of gas. Today when I took out the canister, about a teaspoon of liquid gas came out. I can shake the can and hear the charcoal moving around in there. Is the canister ruined or is it OK to put it back in?
