Spent some time looking on site for this answer...no luck.

After recently taking ownership of a 05 elise with 19K miles I had a check engine light come on. I have a PLX Kiwi 4 code reader, so I plugged it in and used Auto Doctor to determine that my CE light was on due to a P0 441 Evap System incorrect purge flow. I was able to clear the code and for now it seems to have been put to bed. Still not sure if there is an issue with the purge flow valve...wondering if thats an easy fix?

Purge flow valve aside....The next day I tried to drive the car to get inspected (about 2miles) and while the car passed, the OBD was having an issue connecting with the NYS inspection computer. Wondering if that was an issue or connected to the codes being cleared. I had heard that sometimes the ECU needs to "reset" which will happen after some mileage accumulation.

Does anyone here have some intel on Purge Flow 441 and what would cause the ECU to not connect to the NYS inspecition comps? The shop told me that I need to drive it a bit to reset it.

Cars Plate data has been entered and the pass should come thru no problem.
