It is called the "Carbon Canister" and it stores the fuel vapors from fill ups and the gas tank. The location is at the rear near the gas tank on a tray, go under the truck to see it. The location is also shown on the Feds emission sticker under the hood.

P0441 is Evap Emission Incorrect Purge Flow; the repair you are describing is easy, and should correct the P0441 restricition...I would anticipate no large problems.

SOURCE: fuel leak from evap canister

if you continually overfill the gas tank by trying to top off after the pump clicks off you will get raw fuel into the canister. if that is the case you will need to replace the evap canister and filter.

SOURCE: 2000 Honda Odyssey Fuel Vapour Canister location

It is located at the top of the gas tank. You are going to have to drop the tank in order to check it, so it is best to do this when there is not a lot of gas in the tank. Hope this helps you out.

Possibly a stuck float in the carburetor causing the bowl to overfill leaking into canister and flooding engine? Try cleaning or rebuilding carb.

SOURCE: Fuel pump 98 s10

Hi:
You must first drain and lower the fuel tank, as your pump is mounted inside. With the fuel tank supported, undo the tank mounting straps, and the filler hose, then slowly lower it until you can disconnect the fuel lines and electrical harness. The pump assembly is now accessable. Remove and replace the assembly , then reinstall the tank .

1985 MERCEDES 190E I REPLACED THE FUEL TANK AND THE FUEL FILTER, AND NOW I HAVE FUEL COMING FROM THE LEFT FRONT FENDER WELL. I THINK, FROM A VAPOR CANISTER? WHAT DID I DO WRONG


you might connect the fuel vapor line and fuel return line back ward

so so fuel goes to vapor canister ,instead going back to fuel tank

if that is the case ,you need to buy new canister too since it saturated now

1996 Ford Aerostar 3.0 L V-6 Constant check engine light ON Ran codes. Code says vacuum leak on fuel canister. I'd like to change all the vacuum lines. Don't have a good schematic. Haynes manual only...


what codes?

The vacuum lines run from the canister to the intake manifold. One is the purge hose to deliver stored fuel vapor to the intake to be burnd when engine is warm and you are crusing at part throttle. The other line is the vacuum line to operate it.

Fuel Vapor Valve, Aerostar (4.0L Engine) The evaporative emission valve (9B593) uses a small orifice, 1.83mm (0.072 inch), that allows vapors to pass into the vapor line running forward to the evaporative emissions canister (EVAP canister) (9D653). This evaporative emission valve mounts directly into the fuel tank (9002) using a fuel vapor separator seal. Fuel vapors trapped in the sealed fuel tank are vented through the orificed evaporative emission valve. The vapors from the fuel tank leave the evaporative emission valve through a single vapor line and continue to the evaporative emissions canister in the engine compartment for storage.

your truck is equipped with a purge system, this system vents the fuel tank into a charcoal canister that holds all the vapors from the fuel tank and then wile driving the canister dumps those vapors into the engine so they can be burned, so with all that said you either have a leak in the hose that is going from the tank to the canister or in the canister itself.

P1444 Flujo de purga del circuito de entrada en q parte se encuentra localizada o localizado el senso r o valvula.nissan patfinder 98 motor 3.3


I don't know any Spanish but here is the codes definition.

P1444 - Purge Flow Sensor Circuit Low Input

The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve uses a ON/ OFF duty to control the flow rate of fuel vapor from the EVAP canister.The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is moved by ON/OFF pulses from the ECM. The longer the ON pulse, the greater the amount of fuel vapor that will flow through the valve.

Causes:
  • EVAP control system pressure sensor
  • EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve (The valve is stuck open.)
  • EVAP canister vent control valve
  • EVAP canister
  • Hoses (Hoses are connected incorrectly or clogged.)

    Obd-2 code p1455


    DTC P1455 - Substantial Leak or Blockage in Evaporative Emission Control System

    The PCM monitors the complete EVAP control system for no purge flow, the presence of a large fuel vapor leak or multiple small fuel vapor leaks. The system failure occurs when no purge flow (attributed to fuel vapor blockages or restrictions), a large fuel vapor leak or multiple fuel vapor leaks are detected by the EVAP running loss monitor test with the engine running (but not at idle).

    Check this possible causes:
    After-market EVAP hardware (such as fuel filler cap) non-conforming to required specifications
    Disconnected or cracked fuel EVAP canister tube, EVAP canister purge outlet tube or EVAP return tube
    EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed
    Damaged EVAP canister
    Damaged or missing fuel filler cap
    Insufficient fuel filler cap installation
    Loose fuel vapor hose/tube connections to EVAP system components
    Blockages or restrictions in fuel vapor hoses/tubes (items also listed under disconnections or cracks)
    Fuel vapor control valve tube assembly or fuel vapor vent valve assembly blocked
    Canister vent (CV) solenoid stuck open
    Mechanically inoperative fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor


    Check for audible vacuum noise or significant fuel odor in the engine compartment or near the EVAP canister and fuel tank

    The three lines that go into the fuel pump. this is a plastic tanl


    You have the 1. hi pressure line to the fuel filter and then to the injectors, 2. the return line from the fuel injector system to the gas tank. 3. you have the return line from the EVAP canister at the left rear of the blazer. Note it's common for the fuel line to leak along the frame rail where the lines are clipped on to the nylon brace. Hope this the answer your looking for, the only two lines that is going to have fuel is the hi pressure and return, the EVAP line is vapors from the canister.

    2000 ford taurus gas tank has what appears to be a fitting on the top right rear that has hoses attached. there are stains and gas smell coming from this area. my repair manual mentions a plastic push...


    The Evaporative Emission Control System monitors the fuel vapor flow between the engine intake manifold and the EVAP canister. The system failure occurs when a leak or blockage between the intake manifold, the EVAP canister purge valve and the EVAP canister is detected by the PCM.

    Code P1443 Possible Causes:

    - Pinched, blocked or plugged fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)

    - Damaged EVAP canister

    - Disconnected, cracked or cut fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)

    - Damaged EVAP canister purge valve

    Notes: Check for audible vacuum noise in the engine compartment or significant fuel odor in the engine compartment or near the EVAP canister.

    On my '98 4x4, the cannister purge valve is located under the hood, mounted on the driver's side fender.

    The EVAP cannister itself is located underneath the truck, in back, between the spare tire and the truck bed (have to remove the spare to get at it).

    If it were me I would hold off on replacing parts...I'd drive around some more first, making sure that I don't overfill the gas tank or run it dry and making sure I replace the gas cap properly, etc. If the code returns, then its time to think repairs.

    My taurus failed due to code p0442 ecap emiss ctl sys leak detected (small leak)


      Continuous Memory Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0442 indicates that a fuel vapor leak has been detected [as small as 0.10 cm (0.04 inch)] in the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) system.
      Note: Prior to performing the following diagnosis inspect the Canister Vent Solenoid (CV) for contamination. A situation may exist where contamination holds open the Canister Vent (CV) solenoid enough to set DTC P0442 and also plugs the port to atmosphere enough to keep system from being vented quickly.
      • After market parts and accessories nonconforming to the EVAP system specifications.
      • Damaged, cross threaded or loosely installed fuel filler cap.
      • Small holes or cuts in fuel vapor hoses/tubes (EVAP canister tube, EVAP canister outlet tube or EVAP return tube) in the EVAP system.
      • Loose fuel vapor hose/tube connections to EVAP system components.
      • EVAP system component [EVAP canister purge valve, fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor, canister vent (CV) solenoid, fuel vapor control valve tube assembly or fuel vapor vent valve assembly] seals leaking.
      • CV solenoid partially open when commanded closed.
      • EVAP canister leaking.
    • Check for presence of fuel filler cap.
    • Verify that the CV solenoid is properly seated on the EVAP canister (if possible).
    • Visually inspect for cut or loose connections to fuel vapor hoses/tubes in following locations:
      • EVAP canister to EVAP canister purge valve.
      • EVAP canister to fuel vapor vent valve assembly.
      • fuel vapor control valve tube assembly to fuel tank (if applicable).
