Code 1446 and gas filling problem...HELP!
My '00 GLE is throwing the P1446 code and when I'm trying to fill up the tank, the pump shuts off every gallon or less.
I've changed the Canister Vent Valve (originally I incorrectly said it was the purge solenoid)($100) because the old one was intermittent when testing it (the valve would work once then not again for like 10 seconds). I drove it for a couple days and then it threw the code again. I've taken the canister down and nothing came out of it but I didn't do much with it. I blew out the water separator and there was foam that came out of it, was that incorrectly done? Could the canister be bad? This is a Texas car, so I'm doubting the filler neck is rusted out (it doesn't look bad).
What else can I check?
Thanks for any help!
EDIT - I replaced the Canister Vent Valve, the one attached to the charcoal canister.
