throws this code at me

P1441 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Flow During Non-Purge

also when i stop to get gas, the car groggles to start, like it lost fuel pressure. it will also do this if i get out of the car while its running and unscrew the gas cap.

whats the deal here?

Why'd you hit up this board for a diagnostic? Do I not pay attention to the DOHC section? =\

Replace your purge valve, man. It'll fix all your issues. The chuggle is caused because excess engine vacuum is lost to the EVAP system. The chuggling start is due to evaporating fuel entering your intake when it isn't supposed to.

Maybe I should pay more attention to the engine forums on MM.

Make sure the 2 vacuum lines are hooked to the valve. I had one once that was disconnected on a 3.1 after some hack did an intake reseal so make sure.
