My 01 Q/C 4.7 2WD auto has been in shop about 4 times for this damn MIL light the first time they thought it was a loose gas cap NOT. second time couldnot find anything just reset computer and adv if it comes on again they will do a smoke test. well it came back on 3rd attempt a smoke test was performed and they supposely discovered that the fuel tank not holding pressure during evap test sequence was the cause due to one of the vents on top of the tank had popped out slightly. 4TH ATTEMPT, yesterday, fuel tank comes in they replace tank and less then 24hrs the freakin MIL light is on AGAIN!!!... this is so frustrating the same code has come on the trucks computer p0161 however tech says these codes are not reliable and their equipment show more information. this code if i recall has something to do with oxygen sensor bank 1 or 2/ rationalization code.. i have no clue what means? ANY ONE ELSE EXPERENCE A SIMILAR PROBLEM OR HAVE IDEAS ABOUT WHAT MIGHT BE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM???

Not sure on the code you listed, but...

I had the P0442 code which ended up being a cracked hose (the medium size one) at the carcoal canister. It was hard to see the crack till I took it off as it was just some tiny hair line cracks. I replaced the hose and put some band clamps on the ends for good measure. That cured that one.

About a month later, I got another code P0456 at least I think that's what it was if i recall. That one ended up being the gas cap itself. The cap looked fine, seal looked good, but when I dissasembled it the metal part inside was rusted. I replaced the cap (about $13.00 at the dealer) and it's been fine ever since.
