About the Canyon
The GMC Canyon, which is also sold under the Chevrolet Colorado badge, first made its debut in 2003. The model then took a two-year hiatus in 2012, with its resurgence in 2014. In total, there have been three generations of the pickup truck to hit the market.
The latest of these generations was unveiled in 2022 and is set to be released in 2023 in the United States and Canada.
The competitive pickup truck market in North America means that the Canyon goes up against the Toyota Tacoma, Ford Ranger, and of course, the Chevrolet Colorado.
One of the most common issues for the pickup truck is P0446, which shows that there is a problem with the evaporative emission control (EVAP) system vent control circuit. The next most common problem for the model is P0442, which indicates that there is a leak detected in the EVAP system.
These types of codes can be hard to detect because they usually will not affect the performance of the Canyon.
Fixes typically involve replacing faulty components, particularly the vent valve. Should these codes be logged together, it is very likely that this valve is what is allowing for a leak in the system.
Another common problem for the Canyon is P0024, which indicates that the exhaust camshaft in the second bank of the engine is over-advanced. This code only applies to models that are fitted with a V-shaped engine, which mostly affects the second-generation models.
This is a serious code that needs to be addressed immediately to prevent damage to the engine.
Checking the position sensor and replacing the engine oil can be two of the simplest ways to fix this daunting code. Timing solenoids can also be at fault and need replacing.
