Question about 2001 Nissan Maxima
I have a 2001 Nissan Maxima SE and I recently noticed that in the back on the drivers side there are little black stones falling out of a black box. It looks like the box got damaged somehow and now has a crack/opening. The box sits on the opposite side of the muffler. What is this box and what should I do?
You apparently are seeing charcoal granules which are contained inside the vapor canister.This box collects fuel vapors and fumes which are released into the atmosphere via this box.This emmision device is computer driven as far as purge valves and vacumm actuators. You probably will see a check engine light and DTCs(diagnostic trouble codes) arise from this canister being compromised. You might try and save a few dollars and search locally for a salvage replacement from another vehicle that was wrecked in a different location.At any rate,you should replace this item as fuel vapors are unsavory and un-safe for all concerned.
