replace the gas cap .. clean the gas filler pipe where it seals against the gas cap .. .. even a small crack in the rubber seal will trigger the check engine light ..

you have to understand that there is a leak in the system other than the gas cap for the evaporative system. The system needs to be professionally closed, and smoke introduced into to find the leak, and a through component check, eg.. purge valve vapor canister vent solenoid all functioning correctly

I would take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. A loose or faulty gas cap can cause an intermittent check engine light, but it could also be something in the evaporative emissions system that is causing it. Getting the codes should help end speculation so that the problem may be properly addressed. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Unfortunately, this code has nothing to do with the gas cap....
A code P0446 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

Did you have the vehicle scanned for codes?
If so what were the codes?
Gas cap has to be pressure tested. Looking fine is not gonna cut it.
If you didn't have the vehicle scanned go to Autozone they will do it free. Then get back to me and we will take it from there.
