Have you ever overfilled your gas tank and had emission codes pop up?
I did overfill the gas tank on a 2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 Crewmax 5.7 Liter engine. This truck is new to me so I don't know if this has been done in the past. Anyways, I am now having codes 441 and 455. I have cleared them several times, but they come back on. I replaced the gas cap and it didn't solve the problem. After a little research on the web, I replaced the gas cap again with a Stant gas cap this time. A mechanic mentioned that I probably damaged the charcoal canister by allowing fuel to enter it. Could I fix the problem by removing it and letting it dry out? or replacing the filter? or am I going to have to hand over the money for a new canister (out of warranty)? Any experience in clearing these codes permanently?
