Sound like a problem with the MAF sensor, try replace.

Pulled codes for ECM-250A long term fuel trim upper limit, inspected and found air mass sensor failing internally, should show 4 f/s at idle and is showing 2.98 f/s at idle. Recommend replacing with new.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

SOURCE: check engine light code PO442

You likely won't notice any drivability problems. P0442 indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. 
The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage.
Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

With a P0442, the most common repair is to Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back. Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses.

Good luck and hope this helps

My Hyundai 1999 model CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ALWAYS ON AND THE FUEL CONSUMPTION IS HIGH.


Do you have black smoke or what looks like soot coming out of the tail pipe. The check engine light monitors fuel pressure through the computer and pressure regulator. It will come on if the pump pressure is too high or too low. If the pressure regulator is faulty it could cause excessive fuel consumption,

WHAT DOES THE LIGHT ''CHECK'' MEANS


The CHECK engine light means Malfunction Indication Lamp (MIL). It is a yellow colored indicator which always keep the driver of the car informed about the performance of the engine sensors and the Electronic Control Module (ECM). It is always in the OFF state when the engine is running. If it becomes on while the engine is running it become necessary to get the car be checked and scanned for any one or more problems which have occurred in the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system.

Check engine light glowing always in tata indica car


The check engine light is because all check engine light codes are caused by components that affect emissions. It's not actually an engine problem, it's a problem with either your O2 sensor, MAF sensor, fuel/air ratio, pyrometer, or exhaust.

you can start with an OBDII code reader, which you can get for free at your local parts store. This will tell you what component is malfunctioning, and then you can decide if it's worth fixing or not. But rest assured, the oil leak has nothing to do with your check engine light.

2003 Buick Century Sevice Engine light


A check engine light doesn’t always mean a big problem or an expensive repair is ahead. However, driving a car with the check engine light on could mean that you are doing further damage to the engine, depending on the problem. It’s always best to get the vehicle checked at your earliest convenience.

Because there are so many possible reasons for the check engine light to come on, pulling the codes for the event can be helpful when the problem is not immediately evident. Even if the check engine light is only on a short time, a code will be stored in the ECU for later retrieval.

I suggest scannin your ECU to know which fault code there.

Hope helps (remember rated this).
