Question about Ford Bronco II
My 87 ford bronco is leaking gas out of the this round black thing on driver side witch is i think called a fuel valve canister
Fuel vapor canister or charcoal canister. Your purge solenoid may be inoperable. When engine is running the solenoid energizes to purge the canister of vapors into a line going to the intake manifold.
Remove the canister and dump the fuel out-the charcoal element inside the canister can be replaced, if completely saturated with gas, as I suspect yours is. Getting it to work again may be a lot of fun on an '87-been too long for me-better find the repair procedure re: the canister, and how to check the purge solenoid.
Go to autozone.com, register for free listing your make, model, year, and engine size. Look under repair guides for operation and testing of the charcoal canister. If not enough info there at autozone (some help is there, but not as much as in a repair manual), then buy the repair manual for your bronco or check at local library-they often have many repair manuals for check-out or reference.

SOURCE: I have a 1989 Bronco
This was used as a Gas Line filter at one time.I was told that the filters are no longer being manufactured and most commmonly the canister is being used as a sedement bowl.I was unable to find an o ring at the time,and sealed the unit with a high grade silicone gasket sealer

SOURCE: ignition switch
lol ok. turn the key until all the lights on the dash come on. then there is a really small hole just under the switch that you will have to put a really small screwdriver in and hit it to push the lock button. while you do that pull the switch out. and just push the new one in and thats it
