    if you are trying to charge the a/c system. The low side fitting is on the accumulator attached to the evaporator. If you are not charging, what cannister and hose are you asking about?

Nissan Pathfinder showing codes on the emmisions test here in Connecticut p0325 and p0302


Fault Codes 1. PO302 = Missfire on Cylinder 2- Injector could be leaking and causing hard start ( to confirm instead to put the fuel pressure under test to confirm,when just started cold having missfiring, switch engine off and remove spark plug to see whether spark plug 2 is wet with fuel ).
2. PO325 = knock sensor - check the Vacuum line which is above the front right tire on the rear side of the tire,where are small hose comes from charcoal canister up over the shock to the purge valve. That hose from the purge canister is connected to a metal hose and then the metal hose connected back to a rubber hose on the purge valve. As the metal hose gets rusted cause a leak by causing the injector 2 to missfire for a little time when warm started. Please check this first before you do anything else. Good luck.

on your Jimmy you need to put it in 4 hi and up under the battery tray is the actuator for the front dif. make sure the vac hose going up to it has vacuum. if it doesn't then start tracking the hoses going down to the transfer case. one goes to the actuator, one to the vents on the transfer case and transmission and one goes back up to the vacuum canister, it's located on the hood on the drivers side. if the canister isn't getting vacuum then nothing is going to work. i just had to repair the hoses in the truck i put the trans in. the 4 wheel drive now works in it. i would have never know this, the hoses drop over by the exhaust and get hot and burnt and start cracking and breaking up and leaking. this can also cause some minor running problems. also. one last note. where the hoses attach on the transfer case. that connector has to go on correctly. it has a pin hole in it to line up on. if you put in on wrong things won't work.

Where is the fuel filter on 1999 dodge ram 1500


Open the hood of the Dodge Ram and locate the fuel canister located against the firewall of the vehicle. There is a yellow handle next to the canister that has a hose attached to it. Place the bucket underneath the hose and open the handle. Allow all the fuel in the canister to drain into the bucket. Remove the lid of the canister. Remove the fuel filter and place it to the side.
Install the new fuel filter o-rings onto the new filter. Use a small bit of automotive grease to help hold the o-rings in place. Slide the fuel filter into the canister.
Reinstall the lid to the fuel canister and tighten it down. Prime the fuel system before starting the motor. Turn the key to "acc" and allow the fuel pump to send fuel to the filter. Allow it to prime for 10 seconds and then try to start the Dodge Ram. Repeat step 6 if necessary. good-day !

My 1987 deville has been missing the intake hose that brings fresh air into the air pump. the hose before the inline filter is the part i need but can't determine if anything else is missing as w


The A.I.R. (Air Injection Reaction) System was included on California-emission equipped vehicles. The system is designed to provide additional oxygen to continue the combustion process after the exhaust gases leave the combustion chamber. The system begins with the outside air inlet, which is a short, L-shaped open-ended rubber hose running from the lower front passenger fender well into the canister. The black plastic round canister is located in the front passenger-side engine compartment, adjacent to the EECS (Evaporative Emission Control System) canister, which looks similiar, but the EECS canister has electrical connectors on the top. While the charcoal canister of the EECS is a sealed unit, the A.I.R. canister has a twist-off lid to access the disposable filter. The inlet hose goes into the canister, air then passes through the charcoal filter, and travels into the outlet hose (also made of black rubber), which then connects directly to a metal tube coming up the front of the engine. Please contact me if you need a diagram or photos.

Po440 code 96 nissan pu 2.4 engine


Hi Glenn:
This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
The gas cap is not installed or working properly
The purge solenoid has failed
The canister is plugged and not working properly

With a P0440 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
Check and/or replace the sensor
Check and/or replace the purge valve
Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Depending what oil you put in there I would remove bottle and empty the oil or get a cheep suction device from auto parts store and **** it out. You could use your mouth and a hose but oil is thick and doesn't taste good. If there is a hose on the tank you could remove it and let it run out. Your spark plug might be fouled and you would clean it with alcohol or brake clean or lacquer thinner.If you type in the scooter on the internet there is a free service manual pdf you could download to help you take apart scooter or repair

My best guess would be that at some point someone installed an incorrect canister. The best thing to do would be to get a vacuum hose disgram or Evap system diagram from the dealer for your exact year, model and engine to check proper vacuum hose routing and if you have the correct canister. Hope that at least gets you started.

Code p1443


The carbon canister collects evaporated fuel from the fuel tank, where it is stored for later use being pulled into the intake plenum.
Between the evaporative canister & the intake plenum are two devices. 1) Purge flow solenoid & 2) Purge flow sensor. These two devices can, when used simultaneously, test the evaporative system & also meter evaporated fuel vapours into the engine intake under ECU command. 

Basically you either have a leak or a blockage in the fuel evap/ purge system, blow all the hoses with air & check the canister with a vacuum pump if possible. The Purge valve could be blocked even if the solenoid "thumps"; blow through valve while operating the solenoid valve open & closed. Spray carb cleaner into the valve also while doing this. If you put on a new flow sensor I'd assume this to be good, but also associated wiring has to have continuity which could be a a pain to check. You can check the solenoid easily with a bulb. With a warm engine the valve should open intermittently when engine revs rise to about 1500 (bulb will light). Blow out ALL the lines & check the pipe into the intake. I would not blow air into the canister but check with vacuum pump for cracks.

Is fuel tank rusted through anywhere? Also I believe the PCV is connected to the same system.

Here is more info :
Ford On Board Diagnostics II, (OBD II) code P1443 means that the evaporative emissions charcoal canister purge sensor did not detect any flow when the canister should have been purging into the engine intake system. The purging, controlled by the computer,takes place when certain conditions are met, such as engine speed and temperature.What the computer operates to effect this purging is a 12 volt solenoid valve, solenoid means it has a moving piston in it which covers/uncovers ports in the valve so that flow does/does not take place. 

The "gunk" coming out of the charcoal canister will sometimes cause this piston to stick, resulting in purging not taking place when it should, the sensor in the purge hose detects this and sets a fault/trouble code and also turns on the "Check Engine" light. The electrical windings in these valves seldom fail, but anything is possible. To locate and check this valve, first find the charcoal canister, it will be a round or rectangular black plastic "box" with several different size hoses attached to it. If in doubt that you've found it, look at the bottom, there will be a plastic foam filter there---make sure it is not plugged up---.

Once you've located the canister, start following the hoses attached to it. One will go towards the engine, follow that one along until you find the control valve that it attaches to, that's the valve that's not operating. Several things you can do now, just buy a new one and hope it is not the wiring or computer that's at fault. If you want to check it and the wiring, first, with key off, disconnect the two wire connector from it.

Use a 12 volt test lamp, turn the key to "run" and check for current at both wires in the connector, one sould have current. Next, connect the test lamp between the two wires in the connector, start the engine and let it warm up, then run the engine up to around 1500 RPM or so, the test light should come on, if it doesn't, then it is the wire that was "cold" when you checked for power at the connector. or the computer. If the light comes on, then it is the valve. Remove it from the vehicle and clean it with an aerosol can of carburetor cleaner,use the "straw" that comes with the can and spray the cleaner into both hose nipples on the valve, alternately spraying and shaking the valve. 

When you no longer get brown "gunk" coming out of the valve, reinstall it in the vehicle, but leave, if possible, the hose from the canister disconnected. Start the car and let it warm up, (if need be), now raise the RPMs to 1500 or so. valve should now open and a vacuum should be present at the open nipple. If so, the problem is cured. 
On some OBD II equipped vehicles, repairing some problems will cause the computer to turn off the check engine light if the fault is no longer detected, other vehicles require that the computer be interfaced with and the code purged with a scan tool.

When you find the problem it'll be a feeling of some sort of achievement!
Good luck and hope this helps.
