It is under the battery box. So you have to take the battery out and the frame it sets in and then you will see the vacuum canister. Should be two bolts holding it in place.

Testimonial: "Thanks Glenn been lookin for a long time for that can, must have a leak cause when I turn on the A/C it blows cold air till I go up a hill and give it more gas and it changes the vacuum and hot air blows after I get over the hill it starts cold air again. Thanks so much. Bert"

    I looked and it's not there under the battery...is it up under the dash ?

  • bert Dec 07, 2012

    I found it, it's on top of the A/C module with 2 vacuum hoses. That's where the check valve is and it leaks.

Your car is worth about the same with a working and a non-working gas gauge, being about $500 tops.
So you have to decide what fixing this inconvenience is worth. You are going to need a new sender unit which is a float on an arm attached to a variable resister which is on a stick hanging in your gas tank. Means you have to drop the tank, your car is in the age group where it may have a mechanical fuel pump hanging on the side of the engine, or an electrical pump inside the tank. If you are going to go to the trouble of dropping the tank and replacing the sender, you should also replace the electric pump, if it has one, while you are at it as it is near the end of its life too. On the other hand you could just live with it. My personal feeling is to never replace a bad wear item with a used wear item so I would look around and find a new sender as opposed to one out of a junk yard. A car that old a dealer is not going to have it so a google search is required for the parts. You are also going to need a new O-ring for the tank insert.

There is gas coming from the canister in the front left fender?


The canister is clogged. This is not very common. I would get a used one and it will be done.
The canister pulls fumes from the tank and turns them back into raw fuel. If the canister gets clogged than the vacuum hose pulls raw gas and fills up the canister.

Gas is coming out of the canister in the left front fender?


Stop overfilling your fuel tank. It's possible the check valve in the tank is bad. Could also be one of the vacuum valves on top of the canister. Once the canister is saturated with fuel, it's junk.
