    Re: Evap Canister....where is it at?

    On your car, the EVAP solenoid is underhood, near the throttle body. IT has two vacuum lines, an inlet and an outlet. I got those confused, and if you do, your car will run like shit. [br]Posted on: April 29, 2006, 01:05:55 PM_________________________________________________
    Canister!


    I believe that this is the EVAP solenoid.

    Thanks for posting this thread! I looked at mine and one of the vacuum lines had come off! This might be partially why my gas mileage has SUCKED ASS lately!

    This is written about OBD-II, but it still applies.

    The[/url] EVAP system is not a new system used on OBDII vehicles. As a matter of fact, it is part of the first emission systems added to passenger vehicles. The EVAP system's task is simple. Store the vapor created in the vehicles fuel tank, and allow it to be burned in the combustion process when commanded to do so. Why? Again simple..fuel in the fuel tank, the vapors from the fuel is a form of vehicle emissions. We all think of emissions as being what is being expelled from the tailpipe of a vehicle, after all that is what the emission test stations test for when the vehicle is brought in for an emission test. The probe is inserted in the tailpipe or the vehicle is placed on a Dyno, and the emissions expelled from the exhaust are collected/measured and the vehicle will pass or fail depending on the emission level specification of the specific vehicle. Most emission tests will also include a fuel cap test. The fuel cap that has been used for many years, since the introduction of the EVAP system, is a "non-vented" type fuel cap. The fuel cap will be tested and either pass or fail. The difference on the OBDII EVAP system, is that the system, like many other added systems used on OBDII vehicles, is being carefully monitored by the vehicles OBDII on-board computer. The EVAP system is monitored for a leak within the system, and also whether or not the system correctly flowed the fuel vapor when the EVAP system is commanded to flow. Being a controlled and monitored system by the OBDII on-board computer, if a failure should result, the MIL will illuminate to alert the driver that there is a problem. An OBDII scanner is used to retrieve the DTC(s) that are present, or history, in memory. So there you have it. As you already may know, this is a simple, yet a hard system to properly diagnosis. With the engine and fuel tank usually located far apart from one another, the tubing, hoses, EVAP canister, control devices and the wiring make the EVAP system almost as large as the vehicle.

    Duh... Forgot that moved when we did the 3400 intake swap. It looks the same though, just can't remember where it used to be.

    Re: Evap Canister....where is it at?

    hello, allow me to simplify things...evap system is the computers way to check cars fuel system for leaks(which is very dangerous and liablity for auto manufactures).if the system wont hold a vaccum your c.e.l. comes on and service is required.you have TWO siliniods and a canister,lines.siliniod on the engine is to supply vaccum to system(purge siliniod).siliniod on canister(rear)is to releive pressure when test is done or if pressure is too much(vent siliniod)if you have some kind of evap code 99% its the purge siliniod.EVEN if it says you have a leak.also becareful not to OVERFILL your gas tank(Im guilty of this)because the over flow of gas ends up in the canister and wiil distroy/give codes/smell of gas for a day or two..
