P0441 code @ 3886 miles and results

Figured I would share the results of this code showing up on my new 2013 JKU. It might help someone in the future.

I was 25 miles into my 35 mile commute home after working nightshift. Driving with cruise control on, ECO light on the dash, 70mph, 5:30 am and 48F outside. Dashboard alarm chimes once, CEL turns on and the ECO light turns off. Jeep continues to drive just fine with no change in engine performance or sound, so I continue on home instead of pulling over on highway in the dark. I did reset the MPG calculation while driving and it remained at 18.2 mpg for the remainder of the trip home so I gambled it was not going to hurt the engine to continue to drive.

When I got home I did the on-off-on-off-on-off-on sequence with the key in the ignition to pull the trouble codes. Only a single code appeared in the speedometer window "P0441". A quick internet search for the code reveals "Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow. Read more at: obd-codes linky.

I drop off the Jeep at my dealership two days later after only 8 weeks of ownership and get a shuttle ride home. Six hours later I get the phone call says they know the problem and the part is in Los Angeles and will be delivered at 8am, Jeep will be ready by noon tomorrow. Or if I need my Jeep I can take it home and come back 10 days from now at next avaliable appointment for repairs. This tells me driving with a P0441 code is not going to hurt the engine if I can drive for 10 days prior to repairs. I voted to leave Jeep there overnight and complete repairs.

Everything is repaired today and all is well, both Jeep and myself are once again happy. The service write up for repairs consisted of the following:

Installed 4891685AB : Detector: evaporative system
Installed 52129436AA: seal: vapor canister
Installed 4891731AA: valve: linear purge
Replace ESIM and purge solinoid per check out
clear code, test, ok

Everything was covered under warranty but I asked what would be estimate if it was not under warranty just for curiosity and he said $300 parts and labor. I work at a electrical powerplant so I am familiar with electrical components that decide to go bad "without warning". Hopefully trips to the dealership turns out to be a rare visit because I am super happy driving my Jeep "so far".

Well there’s a rarity; a satisfied customer of a Jeep dealerships service department.

Glad it all worked out for you. Do you mind saying what Jeep dealership it is?
