That could be something as simple as a gas cap left off/loose after refueling or the gas cap temporarily removed but the car not refueled.

Reset the code make sure your gas cap gasket is good and see what happens, if it comes back then check it out further.

thanks folks

the gas cap looks fine and secure...

the car is recent purchase and i had many things changed (battery, fuel pump, air filter, and normal service). the check light on came and on ad i tool it to lexsus dealer for full check of the car and they swtiched off the P0440 chek engine but told me it needs furhter check and time and i was busy. then after a few weeks, i did not drive much, the same check on came again. the lexus dealer on thier report says also their is a V.V.T and engine sump leak and i am not sure if this casuign the check engine light to appear again

i am do not know much a bout cars and i am new to lexus.
